Heat Control Technology (HCT) combines a long-lasting outer compound with a heat generating and performance-enhancing base layer for maximum durability as well as increased outright grip.
Jointless Tread (JLT) strip-winding technology allows multiple compounds to be precisely positioned on the tyre to achieve advantages in durability, wear resistance, grip from the tread centre to shoulder and high-speed tyre stability.
Years of success in global Superbike, Endurance and GP championships have resulted in the development of a pioneering multi-compound, which is transferred to many of our current Sportmax track and road products. By mixing compounds, the same tyre can display different performance properties at maximum leaning angles than when upright during straight line speed.
All our radial street tyres are designed using a combination of Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) as well as JointLess Belt (JLB) construction (either front or rear). JLB construction eliminates the belt overlaps resulting in smoother handling and a more stable contact patch with the road.
Dunlop’s ingenious NTEC pressure adjust system allows the rider to optimise the tyre by adjusting inflation pressure. For dry track days, deflating the tyre will deliver predictable and tenacious handling on the limit. Back on the road, re-inflating to the manufacturer’s recommended pressures will reward the rider with class-leading levels of grip and performance.
Our fine-tuned Heat Control Technology (HCT) controls the tyre temperature based on your needs, to provide you with wide operating windows and a consistent performance across a race stint.
Due to the new Aramid JLB and polyester ply construction the D213 GP Pro is able to control deformation under centrifugal forces that in turn provides excellent high speed and braking stability, predictable cornering behaviour and improved braking efficiency.
The new profiles provide you with a larger contact patch at all lean angles that will not only reduce steering effort and improve handling but provide you with increased grip and stability.
The new pattern will ensure faster warm up times and optimised wear thanks to the tuned tread stiffness and enhanced groove angles.
