Dunlop Sportmax Q3 Rear Tires The Dunlop Sportmax Q3 is the next-generation sport bike tire and successor to Dunlop's popular Q2 tire, featuring Dunlops 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 Dunlop's Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) for phenomenal handling and steering grip and feel. IRP provides a larger, more consistent contact patch as you lean into corners, as well as linear steering and handling at various lean angles. IRP tires also offer phenomenal steering and handling characteristics thanks to a taller profile along with sides that taper in more aggressively. The new Sportmax Q3 represents yet another direct benefit yielded from Dunlops 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 Dunlops Buffalo, NY, manufacturing facility. These same high-tech machines are used to produce the all-new Q3 rear tire. Features Dunlops Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) uses carbon fiber reinforcement in the tire sidewalls for exceptional cornering performance and feel Aggressive new Dunlop Q3 tread pattern uses fewer grooves that are longer in length to enhance wet-weather performance Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) technology in the rear tire allows greater latitude in line choice while cornering, plus amazingly linear steering MT Multi-Tread technology in the rear tire uses a tough, long-wearing compound in the center of the tread for excellent traction and longer tread life, plus special lateral grip compounds for outstanding grip Dunlop tires with MT technology incorporate a tough, cool-running long-wearing compound in the center of the tread to provide enhanced straight-line stability and excellent traction under acceleration, plus long tread life 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 Dunlop Q3 sets new standards for high-performance sport tires

Been on and off the track with these. Very sticky when leaned over. I did have a "cold" tire slip, but is was 45 degrees outside and I just started riding. I mean less than 2 miles. Otherwise, they warm up fast and give good feel.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Very pleased with the fit and quality. I wore them all day two days in a row for a track day weekend. Never took them off and never felt uncomfortablbe. However, they did start to get that old "squeek" to them that SMX-Plus are known for. I guess the new model does it too. I am fine with a little squeek. I feel that the added protection is well worth it. Besides, the squeek gives them character!
