Key Benefits

  • Exceptional grip

    Exceptional grip

    The SportMaxx RT delivers superb wet and dry grip thanks to adaptive compound technology. Motorsports derived polymers adapt to the textures of the road surface, maximising road contact and increasing grip.

  • Enhanced cornering control

    Enhanced cornering control

    Enjoy stable high speed handling with smooth transitions from straight to curve. Massive outer shoulder blocks help to enhance stability and handling when cornering.

  • Shorter braking at motorway speeds

    Shorter braking at motorway speeds

    Dunlop’s innovative Short Braking blocks help to ensure shorter braking distances when travelling at speed. Designed for high performance driving, these extra stiff blocks increase road contact under braking force.

  • Fuel efficient design

    Fuel efficient design

    The SportMaxx RT employs a lightweight construction to reduce rolling resistance - lowering fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

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 tyres features a flatter tread profile with a 4-8% bigger contact patch, depending on size and type of tyre. 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.

  • Maximum Flange Shield (MFS)

    A rim flange protection system. MFS employs a profile of rubber that runs around the circumference of the tyre 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.

  • Silica-Plus Compound

    A motorsport derived tread compound that delivers high levels of grip, particularly on wet roads and in low temperatures.

    Benefits
    Superb braking and acceleration performance; high grip in wet and cold-weather conditions; low wear and tear.

  • Dual Silica Compound

    This compound improves acceleration performance and promotes low wear and tear.

    Benefits
    Superb braking and acceleration performance; excellent handling on summer and autumn roads; high grip; wear resistance.

  • Specific bead seat system

    Strengthens the link between tyre 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.

  • Adaptive Compound

    A compound technology that uses motorsports derived polymers to adapt to the texture of the road surface. With enhanced contact at the micro level, overall tyre to road contact is increased.

    Benefits
    Superior grip and braking performance

  • Power Braking Blocks

    High stiffness blocks that maintain rigidity when braking force is applied. The increased stiffness helps to ensure optimal road contact when braking at high speeds.

    Benefits
    Shorter braking distances, especially at high speeds.
