Precise Handling And Responsiveness
Dunlop Touch Technology combines several advanced features that deliver accurate handling and responsiveness. A flatter tread profile puts more tyre in contact with the road, for increased steering precision and road feedback.
Superior Dry Grip With Racing Technology
Enjoy exceptional road adherence with the SportMaxx GT. The tread compound is mixed with racing carbon black to increase dry grip and braking performance.
High Speed And Cornering Stability
The SportMaxx GT maintains its shape at motorway speeds, which helps to enhance stability and wear resistance. Pressure is distributed across the contact patch, resulting in smoother transitions from straight to corner.
Flatter Tread Profile
The new generation of Dunlop tyres features a flatter tread profile with a 4-8% bigger contact patch, depending on size and type of tyre. A bigger contact patch delivers more stability and enhanced road feedback, allowing tires to respond quickly and precisely. Benefits Increased stability and steering precision; reduced heel and toe wear; excellent cornering stability and precision; superior dry grip.
Asymmetric Tread Design
Asymmetric tread design provides improved handling and aquaplaning resistance. The continuous center rib increases stability and precision. The asymmetric groove arrangement enhances grip on wet and dry surfaces. Benefits Improved performance on straight lines and around corners; increased resistance to aquaplaning.
Dual Silica Compound
This compound improves acceleration performance and promotes low wear and tear. Benefits Superb braking and acceleration performance; excellent handling on summer and autumn roads; high grip; wear resistance.
Multi Radius Tread (MRT)
MRT designs employ ten different radii and are therefore more precise. This results in highly effective pressure deployment on the road contact patch. The effect is smoother transitions from straight to corner, leading to more precise and progressive reactions. Benefits Significantly better control over the evolution of the footprint in all driving conditions; responsive wet and dry handling; increased cornering control.
Maximum Flange Shield (MFS)
A rim flange protection system. MFS employs a profile of rubber that runs around the circumference of the tyre above the wheel flange. This creates a protective buffer zone.* Benefits Protects expensive alloy wheels from kerbing.* Only available in select sizes
Jointless Belt (JLB)
A Hybrid Overlay Technology that reduces circumferential deformations at high speeds. Benefits Superior high speed stability; smooth and even wear.
Specific Bead Seat System
Strengthens the link between tyre and rim for a more precise driving experience. Like the grip between your hand and the steering wheel, the Specific Bead Seat System enhances control and conveys outstanding road feedback. Benefits Enhanced road feedback; greater stability and precision.
A motorsport derived tread compound that delivers high levels of grip, particularly on wet roads and in low temperatures. Benefits Superb braking and acceleration performance; high grip in wet and cold-weather conditions; low wear and tear.
Variable Land To Sea Ratio
Asymmetric tread design with a variable land to sea ratio delivers high levels of aquaplaning resistance. The massive outer shoulder block ensures rapid and turbulence free water drainage, while also ensuring outstanding cornering stability. Benefits High aquaplaning resistance; increased road contact; enhanced cornering stability and steering precision.
Tread compound mixed with nanoparticles of racing carbon black. These nanoparticles are combined with resin and polymers to provide excellent adhesion on dry and wet roads. Benefits Superior dry and wet grip, precise braking, improved wear.
