MUTANT

CROSSOVER

Dunlop’s new Mutant takes the concept introduced with the Sportmax Mutant further, and adapts it to today’s ever more popular and powerful crossover bikes. Taking elements from sports bikes, supermoto’s or powerful roadsters, and combining them with adventure bike riding positions and equipment, this new breed of motorcycles redefines the concept of sport-touring. With this versatility comes the need for a new kind of do-it-all tyre, for all roads, usages and conditions.

  • Mutant M+S tyres provide you with the kind of handling and stability you expect from hypersport tyres, the very best grip in wet conditions this side of racing wets, as well as the kind of durability that you would find among touring fitments
  • Supreme versatility to provide rider confidence in all conditions throughout the year
  • Superb wet performance thanks to a tread pattern taking elements from wet racing, supermoto and dirt track tyres
  • Sports tyre handling and stability courtesy of tyre contours developed using DFF (Dynamic Front Formula)
  • Using state of the art compounds and resins combine performance and durability

M+S RATED TREAD PATTERN

The high sea ratio and many grooves provide ample grip and quick warm-up in poor conditions and on roads paved and unpaved.

DFF-OPTIMISED MOULD PROFILE AND SECTION SHAPE

Using Dunlop's proven DFF (Dynamic Front Formula) the front and rear tyres' section shapes have been intricately optimised to offer both responsive handling and confidence-inspiring stability, even when riding two-up and carrying luggage. This is key on today's fast crossover models, which often have wide bars combined with a centre of gravity, making them more sensitive to weaving at higher speeds.

Dunlop tyre technologies

We were the first to apply race tyre performance standards to street tyres. With engineers and designers across Europe, Japan and North America.

4 SEASON TECHNOLOGY

Tyre architecture, ply materials and compound definition are carefully selected to ensure optimum operation in sub-ideal climatic conditions. With improved wet and cold grip, this provides increased safety, rider confidence and comfort.

DYNAMIC FRONT FORMULA (DFF)

The front tyre section shape and mould profile have been optimised using Dunlop’s Dynamic Front Formula (DFF) design approach. This provides the ideal balance between steering effort, stability and feedback, delivering unparalleled rider confidence and enjoyment.

MULTI-TREAD (MT) TECHNOLOGY

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.

HISILICA

An increased Silica content is used to promote compound flexibility at low temperatures. Used to reduce a compound's reliance on temperature to offer optimum grip in wet and less than ideal conditions, as well as to increase mileage.

RAYON PLY CASING (RPC)

Rayon is used as casing ply material, to improve mileage & shorten warm-up time.

JOINTLESS BELT (JLB) CONSTRUCTION

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.
