Key Benefits

  • Excellent road feedback and responsiveness

    Excellent road feedback and responsiveness

    The SP Fast Response benefits from Dunlop Touch Technology – a set of advanced features that deliver a more tactile and responsive drive. A flatter tread profile puts more rubber in contact with the road, for precise handling on wet and dry. The link between tire and rim is strengthened, enhancing road feedback.

  • Superb wet-weather performance

    Superb wet-weather performance

    Enjoy reliable handling on wet roads. The SP FastResponse features wide grooves that rapidly disperse water in rainy weather, reducing the risk of aquaplaning. The tread compound contains high amounts of silica to increase wet grip, resulting in shorter braking distances.

  • Precise cornering control

    Precise cornering control

    With enhanced road feedback, the tire responds faster to steering and cornering maneuvers. The asymmetric tread features a stiff shoulder block to maintain stability when cornering. Pressure is evenly distributed across the tire contact patch, leading to smoother transitions from straight to corner.

  • Fuel efficient with high mileage

    Fuel efficient with high mileage

    The tread compound is engineered to minimize energy loss and wear – resulting in a longer lasting tire that’s easier on petrol.

Technologies

  • Asymmetric Tread Design

    Asymmetric tread design provides improved handling and aquaplaning resistance. The continuous center rib increases stability and precision. The asymmetric groove arrangement enhances grip on wet and dry surfaces.

    Benefits
    Improved performance on straight lines and around corners; increased resistance to aquaplaning.

  • Flatter tread profile

    The new generation of Dunlop tires features a flatter tread profile with a 4-8% bigger contact patch, depending on size and type of tire. A bigger contact patch delivers more stability and enhanced road feedback, allowing tires to respond quickly and precisely.

    Benefits
    Increased stability and steering precision; reduced heel and toe wear; excellent cornering stability and precision; superior dry grip.

  • Multi Radius Tread (MRT)

    MRT designs employ ten different radii and are therefore more precise. This results in highly effective pressure deployment on the road contact patch. The effect is smoother transitions from straight to corner, leading to more precise and progressive reactions.

    Benefits
    Significantly better control over the evolution of the footprint in all driving conditions; responsive wet and dry handling; increased cornering control.

  • Specific bead seat system

    Strengthens the link between tire and rim for a more precise driving experience. Like the grip between your hand and the steering wheel, the Specific Bead Seat System enhances control and conveys outstanding road feedback.

    Benefits
    Enhanced road feedback; greater stability and precision.

  • Variable land to sea ratio

    Asymmetric tread design with a variable land to sea ratio delivers high levels of aquaplaning resistance. The massive outer shoulder block ensures rapid and turbulence-free water drainage, while also ensuring outstanding cornering stability.

    Benefits
    High aquaplaning resistance; increased road contact; enhanced cornering stability and steering precision.

  • Maximum Flange Shield (MFS)

    A rim flange protection system. MFS employs a profile of rubber that runs around the circumference of the tire above the wheel flange. This creates a protective buffer zone.

    Benefits
    Protects expensive alloy wheels from kerbing.

  • Jointless Belt (JLB)

    A Hybrid Overlay Technology that reduces circumferential deformations at high speeds.

    Benefits
    Superior high speed stability; smooth and even wear.
