The dynamic front mould profile shape has been revised to meet the needs of demanding road riders and extreme track application. This finds the rare balance between lower steering effort and optimum turn-in grip, to give you enhanced feedback for supreme confidence in the front when braking and turning.
All new compound blend which combines wet grip resin in the shoulder compound with silica and ultra-fine carbon black. This provides increased safety margin on wet surfaces and better outright performance within a wider operating range.
The new tread pattern takes elements from RoadSmart III and SportSmart TT, to provide both rapid warm-up, efficient water evacuation and even wear to cope with demanding use. The result? Supreme performance in all road conditions and enhanced feedback for optimal rider confidence.
We were the first to apply race tyre performance standards to street tyres. With engineers and designers across Europe, Japan and North America.
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.
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.
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.
Adherence is Improved through an increased road contact at micromolecular level. In addition, the compound is reinforced more effectively, improving abrasion resistance.
Rayon is used as casing ply material, to improve mileage & shorten warm-up time.
