DUNLOP EXPLANDS SPORTMAX LINE WITH THE ADDITION OF THE TRACK DAY HIGH PERFORMANCE Q4
Here’s the first think you need to know about Dunlop’s all new Sportmax Q4: This purpose built track day tyre achieves lean angles up to 62 degrees, more than any other street legal tyre Dunlop has ever made.
Utilizing technology shard by Dunlop’s cutting edge Moto American road race tyres, the Q4 is made in Dunlop’s Buffalo, New York plant on the same proprietary equipment as the racing products – Only Dunlop makes sport tyres in America.
Over the years, Dunlop has developed many class leading sport tyres as well as racing tyres for professional and amateur road racers. The hypersport Sportmax Q3+ combines both, with one foot on the street and the other on the track, performing amazingly well on track days considering it’s built primarily for aggressive street riding.
Now the Q4 takes that performance to a whole new level. The Q4 is not a Q3+ replacement but is instead designed to add depth to the Sportmax family line up to accommodate track day level riding like no other Dunlop DOT street tyre has before, with even greater overall performance and grip than the Q3+.
STREET FRIENDLY, TRACK READY
Visually, the first thing you notice about the Q4 is bold look. Utilizing special moulds, Dunlop was able to create bold on-tread branding for the Q4 that’s remarkably detailed, and the sharply defined new tread pattern with low grove density puts more rubber on the ground at all lean angles.
With far more land area and fewer tread groves than the Q3+, the Q4 puts down a massive footprint, especially during maximum lean angles. Despite this significant performance, the Q4 is also as user friendly as a street tyre – it performs well in the wet, warms quickly, does not require tyre warmers, and is engineered to run on the track at close to street pressures, minimizing the need for chassis adjustments.
