Dunlop Sportmax Roadsmart IV

Dunlop Sportmax Roadsmart IV

New Product Advertorial


There is no experience quite like sport touring. You know that exhilarating feeling of freedom is almost unmatched. With such diversity of riding conditions however, the beauty of it can be much like a double-edged sword. From tyres lacking adequate shock absorption and wet grip, to those which fail to provide the needed mileage, the number of problems you can face is seemingly endless. The solution lies with the newest addition to the RoadSmart family. The RoadSmart IV, will provide you with the ability to go further, with more comfort in tougher riding conditions.

Committed to providing you with the ultimate touring experience, Dunlop has looked back to capture the essence of sport touring and looked forward to the innovation of a new standard. This tyre not only has increased longevity and mileage, but also advanced shock absorption technology – providing you with the smoothest ride into a new era of sports touring performance.

Dunlop Sportmax Roadsmart IV

With enhanced CCT technology, both the heaviness of steering around corners and the difficulty of riding linear on a winding route is reduced significantly to provide you with more responsive handling. The assistance of Progressive Comfort Technology and enhanced shock absorption allows for maximum comfort, preventing unnecessary resistance from the bumps in the road. The RoadSmart IV tyre has been tested rigorously, with results showing their effectiveness in reducing fatigue, giving you the ability to ride uninterrupted for longer periods of time. Adequate grip in wet conditions is no longer a concern thanks to the PCL progressive construction, which simultaneously facilitates higher mileage, complimenting the unique design of the HI SILICA X compound technology.

Gear up like Brad Binder | Ixon celebrate MotoGP victory

Ixon Vendetta Racesuit

Product News Advertorial


Ixon reached a historical benchmark in MotoGP as the brand enjoyed their first premier class victory – thanks to South African rookie Brad Binder. This victory is not only a first for Ixon, but also for the KTM brand and the country of South Africa.

The accolade is the fruit of ten years of perseverance, questioning, analyses and tests, with Ixon stating there will never be enough words to describe all the efforts – physical, intellectual, manual and financial – which have gone into building the worldwide recognition the brand enjoys today. They can now say that their bespoke suits, made in France, contribute to the success of the world’s greatest riders.

Ixon extended their congratulations to the dedication of the Red Bull KTM Team, without whom this result would not have been possible. It’s thanks to the hard work of the entire KTM brand that Brad Binder has been able to firmly establish his reputation as an exceptional rider – now more than ever – on just his third Grand Prix race.

Simon Taylor – Ixon Brand Manager, ANZ

“Ficeda join Ixon in celebrating this important win. It demonstrates the dedication and effort that goes into Ixon’s technology and highlights their world class racing products. As such we are pleased to announce the pre-release of the most innovative Ixon racesuit yet; the Vendetta – launching September 2020.”

The victory coincides with the release of Ixon’s new Vendetta Racesuit, which is due in September in Australia offering a high performance racesuit option.

The new Vendetta design optimises ventilation and ease of movement, in a tailored and fitted style, which also minimises the number of folds required in fabric in the design. Arms and legs are also pre-curved to ensure comfort and fit.

Micro-perforated stretch leather, resistant laminated fabrics and foaming reinforced with metal structures ensure airflow, as well as protection, with the Vendetta ready for the IX-Airbag U03 vest for additional protection. Hump air extractors also ensure breathability, with Keprotec reinforcements and Schoeller stitching for high levels of protection.

Other features include removable eblow and knee sliders, with room for a water bag/hydration pack in the hollow aerodynamic hump, MotoGP inspired shells, grippy inside knee areas, and stretch cuffs with thumb loops.

Scott Gold Edition Prospect Goggle features

  • Lens Lock System – To avoid the lens coming out, Scott has designed this innovative lens lock system which features four locking pins that go through the lens instead of grabbing it from the top.
  • Articulated outriggers – The Prospect has two pivoting outriggers that adapt to any helmet shape and size. The resulting pressure created by the goggle on the rider’s face provides a complete and consistent seal.
  • NoSweat three-layer molded face foam – This unique face foam consists of a microfiber layer which is extremely water absorbent. It soaks up moisture fast and avoids sweat getting into your eyes or inside the goggle.
  • Scott TruView single Works lens – Scott TruView lenses are lightweight and block 100 per cent of harmful UV rays. TruView lenses pass Scott’s strict testing procedures, delivering high-quality, performance lenses. Different to traditional SCOTT MX lenses, this lens comes with four works pins instead of two. The four pins provide more stability for the tear offs. With this system the tear offs will always remain tight to the lens and give the rider better vision.
  • NoFog Anti-Fog lens treatment – Scott lenses undergo a permanent NoFog treatment process to prevent condensation and fogging.
  • Extra-wide, no-slip silicone strap
  • Bonus clear lens included
  • Microfiber goggle bag
  • Noseguard
