Dunlop unveil street friendly but track focused Sportmax Q4

Dunlop Sportmax Q4 arrives in Australia

Ficeda Accessories have announced the arrival of the Dunlop Sportmax Q4 tyre, offering a purpose built track day tyre capable of lean angles of up to 62 degrees, more than any other street legal tyre Dunlop have made.

The Sportmax Q4 features technology used to develop racing tyres in Dunlop’s Buffalo, New York, plant to accommodate track-day-level riding like no other Dunlop DOT street tyre has before.

Features on the Q4 include on-tread branding that’s remarkably detailed, while a new tread pattern with low groove density puts down a massive footprint, especially during maximum lean angles.

Street-friendly performance ensures the Q4 does not require tire warmers, and minimises the need for chassis adjustments, while the tyre is designed in new sizes such as 180/60ZR17 and 200/55ZR17 to work on sport bikes with sophisticated electronics packages.

The new Q4 also offers a more aggressive profile option for track use for many sport bikes, and the rear tyre features Dunlop’s Jointless Tread (JLT) technology, applying a continuously wound tread strip over the carcass to achieve the ideal stability, flex, and grip across the tyre’s tread profile maintaining consistency.

Dunlop’s proprietary Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) in the sidewalls ensures even greater stability and cornering performance, alongside the brand’s proprietary Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) for ultra-linear and responsive steering.
