Product Showcase: The Dunlop Q3s are here!

Cycle News Staff | June 6, 2013

The Sportmax Q3 tires from Dunlop are the next-generation successor to the highly praised Sportmax Q2. They use Dunlop’s new Carbon Fiber Technology, which incorporates a carbon-fiber-reinforcement element in the sidewalls.

They also have a new tread pattern featuring fewer grooves that are longer to help route water away more effectively. They also use Dunlop’s Intuitive Response Profile design to improve steering and handling. They have lateral-grip compounds on the sides and Multi-Tread technology in the center of the tread, which is a tough cool-running long-wearing compound.

Dunlop explains it did extensive testing that shows that the Sportmax Q3 exhibits exceptional cornering stability especially at high lean angles, responsive and precise steering characteristics, and predictable and smooth transitional-steering performance for more confidence-inspiring handling.

As the control tire supplier for AMA Pro Road Racing, Dunlop invested in new tire-producing machinery necessary to accommodate race tire production at its Buffalo, New York, manufacturing facility. These same high-tech machines are used to produce the all-new Sportmax Q3.
