Dunlop Sportmax Q3 Front Tires

The Dunlop Sportmax Q3 is the next-generation sport bike tire and successor to Dunlop's popular Q2 tire, featuring Dunlop’s new Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) which incorporates carbon fiber reinforcements into the sidewall. The Dunlop Q3 Sportmax also features an updated tread pattern with longer grooves to better evacuate water which helps wet weather performance and rear tires boast Dunlop's Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) for phenomenal handling and steering grip and feel.

The new Sportmax Q3 represents yet another direct benefit yielded from Dunlop’s AMA Pro Road Racing involvement. As the control tire supplier for AMA Pro Road Racing, Dunlop invested in new tire-producing machinery necessary to accommodate race tire production at Dunlop’s Buffalo, NY, manufacturing facility. These same high-tech machines are used to produce the all-new Q3 rear tire.

Features:

  • 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
  • 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

Dunlop Q3 works GREAT! For my R1 riding style the Dunlop Q3 delivers excellent performance and reliable grip in the corners, every time! September 29, 2014
Last longer than other tires I have a ninja 650R and those tires are great. You really feel the difference once you have those tires on. Plus Revzilla has the cheapest price compare to any of the dealership I tried in my area. September 13, 2014
Great tire!! This review is based on the street spirited riding NOT a track day!! After 1600 miles no significant wear on the front tire so probably will outlast 2 rear tires and I'm very happy with it, great handling and as for the beginner it gave me so much confidence that now I'm almost ready to put my knee down. Wet traction is great!! My girlfriend and I were riding home from upstate NY on Labor Day weekend and got caught in a downpour and these tires stood up to the task, only had to slow down to see in the rain but not because of being afraid of losing grip. Dunlop had the mail-in rebate twice this year so I put them on both of our bikes (SV650S and FZ6R) Will update this review when the tires are out September 6, 2014
Very well rounded performance tire! Greatest feature of this tire is it's overall feel at the limit especially on turn-in. Very confidence inspiring. Another plus is front/rear wear is about the same. September 1, 2014
Great track day tire. Like Revzilla said, this is a great track day tire. Great on the street too. Not recommended for wet conditions. Not sure about wear on the street. But track wear was good, without the use of tire warmers. Trying Tire warmers on new set to see if they last longer. August 29, 2014
The grip is amazing I love the grip on the tire when leaning the bike. Only thing I don't like about this tire is I can feel a bumps on the road and I think it's due to the carbon fiber side walls so Ivan live with it. August 25, 2014
Nice Tire Nice tire, remember to check the direction arrow when mounting. August 5, 2014
great grip warms up fast, great grip wear is better than expected July 26, 2014

Michael F: Tried the Q3 rear after running Pilot Powers... what a world of difference. For the price, the Q3 Can't be beat. After riding on the rear for a while, I decided that the Dunlop's were the tire for me, hands down. May 17, 2014
felipe b: this?
"I've been riding on Q2s for the past couple of years and they have very good handling capabilities. I am guessing that the next generation is equally is good or better. Down side with the Q2s is that they do wear down rather quickly in comparison to harder tires. I'd rather spend a bit more than take a

Ronald L: Good review Apr 29, 2014
Kenneth H: Price & Reviews Apr 29, 2014
Nathan W: Needed replacement for my Q2's. Liked them so much, couldn't imagine the Q3 being worse. They rock, super grip out of the box. Fast break in, have 1000 miles thus far, very happy, fast turn-in. Probably will not provide huge mileage, as they are more race/track specific tires, but with low price, can afford to use as primary tire for all I do on my Ducati. Apr 24, 2014
