New Dunlop Q2


Heard about this recent launch, and thought you guys would like a look:

Dunlop Sportmax Q2

The new 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.

The Dunlop Qualifier has long been my favorite everyday tire. If dunlop has indeed improved this incredible tire, it should be a REAL CONFIDENCE building asset to any rider!

Anyone know when this tire will be available? I'd be most happy to be the first to try a set!

Hats off to Dunlop!


Oh man...these have some serious potential. I'll be keeping an eye out for their release.

Can anyone say "Group Buy" right off the bat!? :laugh:

I'd be down for ordering a set to try, too. Burger King is needing new shoes.

well? are the Q2's liked? I am about to buy new rubber. Deciding between Michelin 2CT's or the Dunlop Q2's...


Just sent a reply about them less that 2 seconds ago.

They are great, the transformed my Busa into Spider Bike! :thumbsup: the only problem I have now is that the darn things are so sticky that I can't get my knee down! :cheerleader:

I lean off to get a touchdown and it goes the for two points after! Darn it let me score first!:please:

Might also be that I went with a 190 rear tire (more pointy profile) which makes the bike changes sides faster than a politician during an election year.

Better grip, life and they heat up pretty quick and are forgiving when they are cold unlike a lot of women I know!
