The all-new Dunlop Sportmax Q3 Motorcycle Tire is the next-generation sport tire featuring Dunlop’s new Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT).

  • Dunlop’s Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) uses carbon fiber reinforcement in the tire sidewalls for exceptional cornering performance and feel.
  • Aggressive new Q3 tread pattern uses fewer grooves that are longer in length to enhance wet-weather performance.
  • Intuitive Response Profile™ (IRP) technology in the rear tire allows greater latitude in line choice while cornering, plus amazingly linear steering.
  • MT Multi-Tread™ technology in the rear tire uses a tough, long-wearing compound in the center of the tread for excellent traction and longer tread life, plus special lateral grip compounds for outstanding grip.
  • New Q3 tire compounds were derived from road-race compounds to yield maximum sportbike performance.
  • The Dunlop Sportmax Q3 offers superb grip, stability, steering feel and longevity on the street and on the track.
  • Designed, tested and manufactured in America, the Sportmax Q3 sets new standards for high-performance sport tires.

    Q3 is a great tire for street and track

    By Earl

    from Leavenworth

    Comments about Dunlop Sportmax Q3 Motorcycle Tire:

    I rode 22 track days in 2014 and numerous road, day trips with Dunlop's Q3 tires. They performed extremely well on the track. Since I am in the Pacific Northwest some of those days were wet and they worked ok on those days too. Not as well as rain tires but as good as any street tire I have used on the track. I would recommend them to anybody that wants a high performance tire that can work on the track and the street.

    Loved them while I had them

    Comments about Dunlop Sportmax Q3 Motorcycle Tire:

    I thought these tires were tremendous, allowing for very sharp leans within 10 minutes of riding. I had to replace them though because my rear tire kept shaking. Got a second set, and still the same problem. There must be a bad batch out there. Too bad, I liked them

      Comments about Dunlop Sportmax Q3 Motorcycle Tire:

      These tires are truly worth every penny! They contain a harder substance in the center of the tire (where you ride most) so they will hold up longer but contain a softer, more sticky material that allows you handle sharp corners with no hesitation; even containing carbon fiber. I will be purchasing these tires after my current tires are ran through. Great purchase and couldn't be happier!
