GOODYEAR TAKES INNOVATION TO NEW HEIGHTS WITH SKYGRIP™ TIRES FOR BLIMPS


AKRON, Ohio, April 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — In a bold move that redefines the boundaries of aerial transportation, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (NASDAQ: GT) today announced the launch of an exclusive line of tires designed specifically and only for blimps – the Goodyear SkyGrip. This revolutionary line of tires includes all-season, winter, all-terrain and high-performance tires, ensuring that every blimp can experience unparalleled performance in the skies.


With the Goodyear SkyGrip Max Altitude tires, blimps can cut through the clouds to reach new heights.


Goodyear is taking innovation to new heights with its new line of SkyGrip tires for blimps.

“Goodyear has always been at the forefront of tire innovation, and with the SkyGrip series, we’re making a giant leap – into the air,” said Michael Dougherty, Chief Pilot, Airship Operations at Goodyear.  “Our tires are meticulously engineered to fit blimps and only blimps. Whether you’re navigating through a blustery winter gust or cruising in the calm summer breeze, SkyGrip will keep your airship moving.”

Goodyear projects the addressable market of tires to be 15 by the year 2050 and plans to capture 100% share immediately.

The SkyGrip series boasts a unique cloud tread pattern, allowing for smooth navigation through the most turbulent of skies. With the introduction of these tires, Goodyear is adamant that they are exclusively for blimps – no other aerial or ground vehicle can harness the power of the SkyGrip.

“We’re not just reaching for the stars; we’re providing the means to roll on them,” continued Dougherty. “In my 20 years as a pilot, I’ve never seen anything like this tire!”

Goodyear invites the world to look up and witness the future of blimp travel, because when it comes to innovation, the sky’s the limit.
