Goodyear has announced that it will display its new Triple Tube concept at the Geneva Motor Show.
It’s fairly advanced tyre technology, but it basically allows the tyre to prepare itself before it enters a curve. It does so by inflating or deflating itself to provide the maximum amount of grip.
The tyre relies on an internal pump that moves air from the main air chamber to the three individual air chambers. The multiple air chambers provide extended mobility, as one punctured chamber would still allow the driver to continue his journey.
“TheTriple Tube is a testament to our engineers, and we are proud to showcase it as a concept tyre at Geneva. At Goodyear, we are committed to making consumers feel good and helping them reach where they want to go without worry. These tyres embody that spirit by adapting and providing optimal performance to whatever journey awaits. The tyres bring together environmental benefits by reducing CO2 emissions and use of sustainable materials, as well as safety benefits and enhanced mobility in case of puncture,” said Jean-Pierre Jeusette, General Director at the Goodyear Innovation Center in Luxembourg.
At the moment there are no plans to put this tyre into production.
