Precise steering and handling stability

Enjoy precise steering response and consistent handling. The SportMaxx Race uses a hybrid overlay to limit tire distortion at high speeds, enhancing steering and stability.

Reliable wet performance

While optimised for dry, the SportMaxx Race performs well in wet conditions. The asymmetric tread design features four inner grooves to quickly evacuate water, reducing the risk of aquaplaning.

Enhanced cornering grip

The tread features high angle ribs to increase lateral stiffness, for improved control when performing cornering manoeuvres. Massive outer shoulder blocks increase cornering grip.

Superb dry grip and braking

Maximize your track performance with the SportMaxx Race. Derived from Dunlop Motorsports technology, the high grip racing compound gives you exceptional levels of road adherence and braking ability. This track optimised tire is fully approved for road use.

Jointless Belt (JLB)

A Hybrid Overlay Technology that reduces circumferential deformations at high speeds. Benefits: Superior high speed stability; smooth and even wear.

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.*BenefitsProtects expensive alloy wheels from kerbing.* Only available in select sizes

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.BenefitsImproved 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.

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