The Dunlop Sport Maxx Race has been developed for mixed use. It provides both grip and durability on the track and guarantees a safe drive, particularly on wet roads. These performance requirements need completely different technical solutions.

A race-inspired rubber compound

The Dunlop Sport Maxx Race uses a motorsport derived compound. This tyre features a blend of a race-proven polymer and a traction enhancing plasticiser which provides increased adaptability to road surfaces.

An optimised tread design

The Dunlop Sport Maxx Race with its asymmetric tread design features a massive outer shoulder block that provides enhanced cornering stability. A welcome quality for race track driving where tyres are subjected to high stresses.

The high angle grooves ensure increased lateral stiffness and improve cornering grip.

Four longitudinal grooves efficiently drain water when driving on wet roads.

A reinforced structure

Tyres have a natural tendency to become oval at speed. To limit this phenomenon and provide an optimum footprint at all times, the Dunlop Sport Maxx Race uses a hybrid overlay comprising Aramid, a heat resistant and strong synthetic fibre.
