To reduce braking distances, Dunlop has developed reinforced blocks that ensure an “anti-lift” effect thanks to an increased stiffness. In practice, these grooves connect the V-shaped tread blocks.
Motorsport-derived rubber compound
To provide optimum grip, the Dunlop Sport Maxx RT uses an adaptive compound which compensates for any micro-irregularities in the road surface to ensure a maximum contact area with the ground. Discover this technology on video:

Optimised outer blocks
To improve the steering responsiveness and precision of its tyre, Dunlop Sport Maxx RT has a massive outer shoulder block. This allows the tread pattern to perform efficiently when subjected to high stresses.

Improved rolling resistance
To improve the rolling resistance, and therefore reduce fuel consumption, Dunlop has worked on reducing the tyre’s weight as well as the air penetration coefficient to reduce the aerodynamic drag.
