There’s the new tread pattern on the Q3, a planned outgrowth of the GP-A tread pattern
Dunlop proudly introduces the new Sportmax® Q3, the next-generation successor to the highly praised Sportmax® Q2®. The Sportmax Q3 delivers next-generation sportbike tire performance by incorporating Dunlop’s new Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT), and it also represents an outstanding value, which makes it a winner twice over.
“Our Sportmax Q2 tire just recently took on all of the other tire brands
in the category in the Sport Rider Magazine shootout and the Sportmax
Q2 won hands down,” said Mike Manning, General Manager, Marketing.
“And here we are introducing the Sportmax Q3—an even better tire than
the Q2—that will set new standards in the high-performance sport tire
Dunlop’s new Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) incorporates a carbon
fiber reinforcement element in the Sportmax Q3 tire sidewalls. The many
attributes of carbon fiber—high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical
resistance, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion—make
it a great match for application in the Sportmax Q3.
In addition, the success Dunlop has earned with the Sportmax®
D211™ GP-A in AMA Pro Road Racing has led directly to many of the performance advantages in the Sportmax Q3.
Features fewer grooves that are longer in length to help route water away more effectively in wet conditions
Dunlop’s Intuitive Response Profile™ (IRP) design for phenomenal
steering and handling characteristics
MT Multi-Tread™ technology with a tough, cool-running long-wearing compound in the center of the tread
Lateral-grip compounds on the sides
Dunlop engineers worked to optimize tire carcass construction and tire
compounds in the front and rear Sportmax Q3 tires.
Exhibits exceptional cornering stability especially at high lean angles,
Responsive and precise steering characteristics
Predictable and smooth transitional-steering performance for more confidence-inspiring handling
