Dunlop Sportmax Q3 Front 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 rear tires boast Dunlop's Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) for phenomenal handling and steering grip and feel. 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 Q3 tread pattern uses fewer grooves that are longer in length to enhance wet-weather performance 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 Sportmax Q3 sets new standards for high-performance sport tires

Well I don t know if its because i have been spoiled by riding GPA s on the track recently , but these tires are SLOW to
turn in . They are unbelievably stout and smooth when it comes to rippled pavement , cracks and bumps , I mean literally you feel NONE of that. I dont know what kind of voodoo Dunlop put into these tires , but I mean really , you feel totally glued to the ground on these tires , even over fresh tar snakes.
But again , the profile of these tires , I guess , makes quick direction changes very slow , even compared to Q2 ' s which i would have thought had the same profile? Anyway , I hope to just get use to them , but if you have the money , and access to a tire changer...stick with GPA s!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Really comfortable and track-looking jacket. Holds all the armor you can throw at it and ventillation is superb. Really
like the way it fits ,and from a distance people think its a leather race jacket. However , here's an issue I have , the nylon thread they used to construct this jacket ,ie: in all the mesh areas, seems to fray, unravel
and puff out like a cotton ball at the slightest introduction to any velcro adjustment straps at many areas of the jacket. I found when I first pulled it out of the box , the velcro strap at the neck had somehow already came into contact with part of this mesh section of the jacket and when I pulled it loose , left a noticeable puffball of vinyl thread showing. Additionally since my jacket is the mostly white one with black trim , the fraying is very noticeable. Since this jacket proved to be hard to find and I think discontinued , I m gonna hang onto it. I really don't think the fraying affects the strength of the jacket in any way , but its a bother trying to be super careful putting the jacket on and not having any velcro come in contact with the mesh.Probably not nearly as noticeable on a black jacket. Based on this , I think it's a little overpriced.
Yes, I recommend this product.
