Dunlop Sportmax Q2 Rear Tire

The new Dunlop Q2 incorporates race-tested advancements that add up to a vastly superior tire equally at home on the street or the track.

  • Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) technology in the rear tire intuitively allows the rider greater latitude in line choice while cornering and provides amazingly linear steering no matter what shape, speed or camber the corner, and at all lean angles
  • Radical new profile puts down a bigger footprint at extreme lean angles while also allowing greater lean angles and higher corner speeds to provide substantially better grip and handling
  • Dunlop’s advanced Multi-Tread technology combines the benefits of a tough, long-wearing center compound for increased mileage with a special lateral-grip compound on each shoulder for superior cornering traction
  • New carcass construction in both the front and rear tires includes newly designed continuous hex beads that are both lighter and stronger to enhance steering response in the front tire and increase cornering stability in both tires
  • Q2 rear tire features a newly developed, stiffer version of Dunlop’s Jointless Band (JLB) construction that utilizes a continuously wound aramid belt for reduced carcass distortion, plus stiffer overall construction to meet high-performance demands and provide a more consistent contact patch

Great Tire Awesome traction, not made for insane tire life. I will keep buying these until I can't find them anymore. December 11, 2014
Excellent all around tires I have ridden 500+ miles in the rain and at least 1000 in dry conditions and they heat up quickly and I never felt like I was losing any traction. No track days on them so can't speak about track performance but for street these are a very well balanced tire. December 29, 2014
Good edge grip and predictable. The tire has good grip, but wears out quickly. I only had 2,700 miles on the original tire that came on the bike before it was down to the wear bars. I own a 2014 YZF R-1. Must be the low end grunt that wore it out. The front has held out good. Bought another rear as to not mix tires. October 13, 2014
This tire is great. Nice and sticky. Riding it for a year now with no problems December 31, 2013
Not a good wet tire I did Deals Gap and Wolf Pen Gap in the rain on these tires on my 11 R1 in B mode. I was uncomfortable the whole time. I wasn't pushing at all and the tires were noticeably slipping in any kind of wet or dampness while cornering. I had to change my cornering to early apex and stand the bike up on exit to not get high-sided or lose the front end. They are a fine tire for dry and slight bends in the road. I wouldn't recommend them for aggressive corners or the wet. December 29, 2013
Dunlop Q2 I'd a great tire. The Dunlop Q2 is a great tire with amazing grip. I averaged 8000 miles on my old Honda CBR600f4i and 7000 miles on my current Honda CBR1100XX. I only wish in Q2 got better mileage. November 11, 2013
Awesome TIres!! First and foremost, I ride a 2012 Yamaha R1 Raven. These tires are amazing! I've ridden 100mph in the pouring rain on the interstate and these tires never lost traction. They do nothing but inspire confidence! On the rear tire, I got 6,373 miles out of it before the wear bars appeared. The front was still good to go. However, I replace tires as a set and I decided to go with the Pirelli Angel GT's because they say they'll last twice as long and the reviews and videos of them are simply amazing. I just installed the Pirelli's and the bike is way more sensitive on turn in and the traction is amazing. Can't wait to run these babies in and see what kinda mileage I get out of them!

Great grip for the money Grip is awesome and very predictable. Tread wear could be better...center of rear tire wore out kinda fast but not unexpected for a bike with lots of power! August 27, 2013

Cesar C: Heard good reviews about this tire and wanted to try it for myself. Dec 11, 2014
David B: Replacement tire for my R-1 that I already wore out with just 2700 miles. The front tire still looks good so I'm going with another Dunlup so I don't mix and match the tread pattern. After I wear this one out the front will most likey be toast as well. Then I'll go with a different brand! Not happy at all with the mileage number! Sep 24, 2014
FRANCISCO V: Superb traction....!!!!! Aug 29, 2014
Charles J: Great Bang for your buck! Plus I haven't had any issues currently running the tires on the street or the track. Apr 19, 2014
Craig W: Purchased this tire off Revzilla last year along with the front and the rear gave me quite literally one year of performance (roughly 7k miles). I'm well into my warebars now so it was time for a new and no one beats Revzilla's prices, service & selection. Triumph dealership up the street from me wanted over $200 for the same tire!

Nelson R: Bang for the buck, plus I need to feel a little more confident on the turns, let's see how it performs under pressure. Thanks RZ. Nov 16, 2013
Curtis L: The Dunlop Sportmax Q2s are the stock tire for the 2012 Yamaha R1. The tire provides great grip with little movement at full lean. However, turn in is very slow. I purchased the rear tire only because I still have sufficient tread on the front tire. When both tires are worn, I will switch to the Q3s.
