As daylight saving time ends, new Roll by Goodyear tire installation service helps time-strapped drivers realize the possibilities an extra hour can lend

AKRON, Ohio, Nov. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Clocks across Florida “fall back” one hour on Nov. 6 as daylight saving time ends, a welcome change for the 57% of Jacksonville and Orlando residents who feel they do not have enough time to finish daily tasks, according to a new study from Goodyear (NASDAQ: GT).

To better understand how locals can benefit from an extra hour in their day, Roll by Goodyear, a new time-saving tire installation service in Jacksonville and Orlando, surveyed* more than 1,000 local residents ahead of what could be the final year the clocks change in Florida for daylight saving.

The study revealed that, on average, Jacksonville and Orlando residents said they need three additional hours per day to work through the tasks they’re expected to complete. In fact, locals are so strapped for time that two in three respondents would give up social media, TV or their phone just for an extra hour back in their day. Fortunately for drivers, sacrificing time – or social media – is no longer necessary when it comes to one common to-do: changing tires.

“We built Roll by Goodyear with drivers’ busy schedules in mind and a mission to ‘change tires, not your plans,'” said Johnny McIntosh, senior director of Digital and Ecommerce at Goodyear. “We hope that by introducing an effortless tire installation service in Jacksonville and Orlando, drivers can get time back in their day to focus on things that matter most.”

With Roll by Goodyear, drivers in greater Jacksonville and Orlando can save time by shopping for tires on Goodyear.com and have them delivered and installed at a time and place of their choosing, whether at home, the office or even at their kid’s soccer practice. With 70% of locals agreeing the hour gained on Nov. 6 will make a difference in their day, drivers can now enjoy those same “fall back” time-saving benefits they experience annually any time they need new tires.

More key highlights from the Roll by Goodyear survey:

JACKSONVILLE

  • Time back is so appealing to Jacksonville adults that 85% said they would love to give people an extra hour in their day as a birthday gift.
  • When asked about activities most neglected in their daily lives due to a lack of time, sleep (51%), exercise (46%), quality time with friends and family (44%) and self-care (43%) topped all responses.
  • When asked what an extra hour in their day would be used for, Jacksonville respondents prioritized quality time with family and friends (38%) and getting more sleep (35%).

ORLANDO

  • The search for more time is even more profound among Orlando parents, with 80% saying the time change on Nov. 6 will make a difference in their day.
  • While sleep was most neglected in Orlandoans’ daily lives (56%), locals prioritized quality time with family and friends (42%) and exercise (35%) if given an extra hour in their day.
  • Orlando likes the idea of gifting “time back” even more than Jacksonville, with 89% of local respondents saying they would love to give an hour back as a birthday gift.

Booking an appointment with Roll by Goodyear is simple. Drivers can confirm the right tires by vehicle type, tire size or license plate number on Goodyear.com and schedule an appointment for a date, time and location that works best for them.

SQAIRZ Dominates Baseball Performance with Breakthrough Footwear Clinical Study

Published

on


WINDHAM, N.H.  /PRNewswire/ — In an unprecedented move that bridges biomechanic science with sports innovation, SQAIRZ, a leader in performance golf footwear, proudly announces its strategic venture into baseball. The launch comes on the heels of a 10-month clinical study spearheaded by Dr. Paul Klutts, which was presented at the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons International Scientific Conference on February 9, 2024.  This clinical study has shed light on the significant impact of SQAIRZ’s patented footwear design on baseball performance.  

Dr. Klutts remarked, “Ten months ago, we began studying the SQAIRZ technology because we know that there are so many variables that impact the players ability to optimize exit velocity.  What we found as physicians is that from clinical and biomechanical standpoints there is a correlation between increased ground reaction forces of the hind foot with batting exit velocity. We are very proud of the fact that these findings are the first clinical baseball performance shoe study that has been published as a poster presentation at the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons International Scientific Conference.”

Unprecedented clinical study concludes that SQAIRZ new baseball shoes measurably improve batting exit velocity.

The study meticulously examined the subtalar joint’s role and the effect of performance footwear, specifically designed to promote ground reactive forces, on exit velocity. The research concluded that SQAIRZ baseball shoes, by enhancing ground reaction forces in the hindfoot, measurably improve batting exit velocity. The results of the clinical study findings were groundbreaking: 60.5% of players reported over a 2MPH increase in exit velocity by simply switching their shoes to SQAIRZ. The significance of these results cannot be overstated. With every 1 MPH increase in exit velocity translating to approximately 10 additional feet of ball distance. This marks a significant advancement in sports science, demonstrating the tangible benefits of biomechanically informed footwear.

SQAIRZ is setting new benchmarks for performance gains in baseball as the game requires extremely fast and reactive movements, static and dynamic agility, with an emphasis on precise footwork. Because the only option the baseball player has for leverage, control, and power is the ground, the correct pair of baseball shoes can significantly impact a player’s performance on the field, mound, and especially in the batter’s box. Leveraging the foundational principle that superior balance and stability lead to enhanced performance, SQAIRZ has successfully applied its patented technology to conquer the challenges of baseball with their new GFP baseball shoe.

This unprecedented performance enhancement is attributed to the shoes’ strategic design features, including a patented toe box and wider base, and AI generated traction system which ensure optimal energy transfer and minimize energy leaks during the kinematic sequence. 

“Our journey began with the goal of enhancing performance in golf, leveraging our patented footwear technology to achieve a notable 2.9mph average increase in swing speed,” Bob Winskowicz, Founder & CEO of SQAIRZ states. “This success laid the groundwork for our strategic expansion into baseball, proving our technology’s versatility across land-based sports. After nearly two years of rigorous testing across all skill levels, the benefits have been consistently remarkable. By simply changing a player’s shoes to SQAIRZ, we saw performance improvements in pitching, running, and hitting.  The recent independent clinical study validates our findings, underscoring the efficacy of our approach. Inspired by this success, we’re excited to extend our innovative solutions beyond baseball and golf, exploring new territories including pickleball. This is just the beginning of redefining performance footwear across sports.”

With MLB players already incorporating SQAIRZ shoes into their training regimen, the brand is set to release three versions of their GFP baseball shoe: turf, molded cleat, and metal cleat models. SQAIRZ GFP, standing for Ground Force Production, will be available in May. 

Since 2019, SQAIRZ has been proud to offer game-changing results to golfers around the world, culminating in award-winning models and three wins on the PGA Tour. As SQAIRZ continues to expand its influence beyond golf, this strategic entry into baseball marks a significant milestone, giving baseball players a competitive edge, backed by independent, clinical research. SQAIRZ’s entry into baseball not only sets a new standard for athletic footwear but also paves the way for further footwear advancements across all land-based sports.

About SQAIRZ

SQAIRZ is at the forefront of performance athletic footwear, dedicated to advancing athlete stability, balance, and performance through innovative design. Renowned in the golf industry, SQAIRZ is now extending its impact across sports, proving that foundational advancements can transform the game.
