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

First let me say that the Q2's are one of the top tires out there.
Moving forward, The Q3's are a step above. They are a 50/50 tire with soft compound. I'd say 4k miles is an average estimated mileage for street use.
From the second i started driving i could feel a sense of confidence in the bike(mind you im still havent broken the tires in). Steering is sharper and more responsive and cornering is much different that the batllax s20's i recently had. The Dunlops turn in more. lean angle is increased, and grip is definitely enhanced. Even with the fresh new layer on the q3's the tires felt like they had more grip than my Bstones after 20 minutes of riding.
The first night i took them on some backroads to break them in. Some of the roads had wet spots(the wet spots that didnt get to dry out because the sun went down or trees blocked the sun) yet the tires held up all the way no matter what was on the road.
Now that ive put 200 miles on these tires i must say that you will have to learn how to not go faster through turns. Powering in mid turn can now be done with confidence.
I wouldnt chose any other tire over this, and for the price, its a great buy.
This should be the FIRST PERFORMANCE PART YOU BUY FOR YOUR BIKE OTHER THAN A SLIP ON!!!!! Lets be honest.....we really want the speed in the turns because our bikes are fast enough. So what good is 4hp going to do you if your trying to take the twisties at higher speeds.
Traction should be #1 if your on 2 wheels......
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was in a local shop today and tried on ever single helmet they had. I was going for the ICON AIRFRAME or AIRMADA. It was looking like i would go with the AIRFRAME over everything else. Right as i got everything i needed I walked by the wall where i bought all my other scorpions before. Up top their sit the EXO 1100. I tried it on and like it, although i was suprised to find that i was a large instead of a medium. My chin was too close to the front guard so i went with the large.
I love it!!!
The sun visor is a great feature
The face shield can lock 99% closed to let air in and allow you to hear your bike without annoying wind noise, or it can seal and lock shut making wind noise almost gone.
Has exhaust aswell as chin, brow, and crown vents on the front.
The cheek pads have a pump system to allow you to bring the helmet to a custom fit.
Thhis shell is on the bigger side, and sadly when your a medium you never really get a shell thats in the middle. I find its best to go with the shell of a large and then get thicker cheek pads. the difference is only 4.5 mm so if you get the pads that are 5 mm bigger you should actually have a better fit.
Im glad i bought this helmet.
If your waiting for the R2000, please remember that is a race helmet, not a street helmet.
I will add that i believe my helmet came with a dark smoke sun visor.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This Helmet is great to say the least. Fits right to the natural shape of your head and protects you noggin.
I have crashed before and scorpion gear saved my head and hands, so i will back their product until further notice.
The shield removes with ease, locks with ease, slides with ease, and even seals when you shut it.
Helmet has a chin guard(good for colder rides)
Only has 3 vents so when it gets really hot i wouldnt put off finding a secondary helmet.
Face shield gets swirl marks easy. One wipe with the wrong material and its swirled.
I recommend this helmet though. A better alternative would be the ICON Airmada. This helmet just needs more vents and a smoked faceshield.
Yes, I recommend this product.
