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

The tire has excellent turn in. It is easy to flick. Good grip and does a great job sucking up pavement imperfections and small holes. I would recommend scrutinizing the quality and integrity of the tire before mounting because I experienced poor quality control on Dunlop's part.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I opted for one size larger than I normally wear and they fit perfectly after two rides. The stitching on this glove is not top notch but does not interfere with the technical aspects. The airflow is improved with fingers extended over the levers. I have ridden in 85 degree weather and my hands have neither sweat or felt too warm. This is a great summer gauntlet style glove at a reasonable price.

I am 5' 3" with a 32" waist. I ordered a size 50 but returned them because they were too long and too big all the way around. The 48 fits perfect and there is just enough room for long underwear if needed. I found the Dainese size chart difficult to convert to standard women's clothing sizes and erred the first time by ordering too large. The description of the pants is accurate and I am very happy with them. The only two improvements would be hip protection and adjustable height knee protection. The knee area is a bit tight at first but after a few rides it stretches and is very comfortable. The pants do not have any perforation so I found them too hot when riding above 75-80 degrees. Conversely they are warm at 55 degrees with thin tights underneath. I did not feel any cold air or cold spots. I would definitely give these a try if you are on a budget but want a good solid pair of leather pants.

First of all the fit is perfect for a woman with a wide foot. The nice thing about the toe box is the vertical space is not that roomy so you can maintain good control over shifting and braking. I have worn them to do walking errands to help with the break-in process and they were comfortable from the get-go. I chose the white accent because I am not a pink kind of person and I am glad I did. The calf adjustment is totally sweet...just set the dial and it fits every time. You can crank it tighter if you want to wear a particular pair of pants on the outside of the boot. I was happy with the height of the heel. I am 5'3" and have no problem reaching the ground on my sport bike. Overall the Lei is a fantastic boot for the price.
