Performance Touring is born. Introducing a tire that not only lasts longer, but performs at higher levels than the competition throughout its lifetime: The all-new Sportmax® Roadsmart III. Dunlop’s new GT tire - for grip and performance that’s stronger for longer.
-Innovative tread design enables the tire to maintain performance for longer
-Improved wet and dry grip - for longer
-New wear resistant high-performance compound for high mileage
NEXT GENERATION WEAR-RESISTANT NANO TECHNOLOGY COMPOUNDS.
RoadSmart III’s new MultiTread compound with optimised tri-polymer blend and high dispersion silica mix, offers significantly increased mileage and wet grip. Internal tests show that mileage has been improved by +10% compared to the RoadSmart II.
UNIQUE INTERCONNECTING GROOVE TREAD (IGT) DELIVERS HIGH WATER DISPERSION RATES.
Innovative interconnecting groove design (iGT) ensures fast and efficient evacuation of water to maintain class-leading grip and handling for longer.
NEWLY DEVELOPED RAYON PLY CARCASS AND FRONT PROFILE.
Dunlop’s RoadSmart III has an entirely revised rayon ply carcass, requiring significantly less steering input and offering more precise handling, whilst maintaining trademark confidence and reliable feedback.
LOOKS DIFFERENT, IS DIFFERENT. INNOVATIVE TREAD DESIGN WITH ENHANCED GROOVE ANGLES ON FRONT AND REAR.
The ground-breaking tread pattern of RoadSmart III has been especially developed to ensure even wear, designed for long lasting performance.
DUNLOP TIRE TECHNOLOGIES
We were the first to apply race tire performance standards to street tires. With engineers and designers across Europe, Japan and North America.
JOINTLESS BELT (JLB) CONSTRUCTION
All our radial street tires are designed using a combination of Computer Aided Design (CAD) technology and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) as well as JointLess Belt (JLB) construction (either front or rear). JLB construction eliminates the belt overlaps resulting in smoother handling and a more stable contact patch with the road.
MULTI-TREAD (MT) TECHNOLOGY
Years of success in global Superbike, Endurance and GP championships have resulted in the development of a pioneering multi-compound, which is transferred to many of our current Sportmax track and road products. By mixing compounds, the same tire can display different performance properties at maximum leaning angles than when upright during straight line speed.
Thousands more miles than the Pilot Road 4 GT ! (As compared to the Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT tire in sizes 120/70ZR17 and 180/55ZR17 on a 2016 BMW R1200RT in an independent test performed by Texas Test Fleet, Inc. Mileage results may vary.)
