Sportmax Q3

Meet the all-new Dunlop Sportmax Q3, the next-generation sport tire featuring Dunlop’s new Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT).

  • Dunlop’s Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) uses carbon fiber reinforcement in the tire sidewalls for exceptional cornering performance and feel.

  • Aggressive new Q3 tread pattern uses fewer grooves that are longer in length to enhance wet-weather performance.

  • Intuitive Response Profile™ (IRP) technology in the rear tire allows greater latitude in line choice while cornering, plus amazingly linear steering.

  • MT Multi-Tread™ technology in the rear tire uses a tough, long-wearing compound in the center of the tread for excellent traction and longer tread life, plus special lateral grip compounds for outstanding grip.

  • New Q3 tire compounds were derived from road-race compounds to yield maximum sportbike performance.

  • The Dunlop Sportmax Q3 offers superb grip, stability, steering feel and longevity on the street and on the track.

  • Designed, tested and manufactured in America, the Sportmax Q3 sets new standards for high-performance sport tires.
