Dunlop Sportmax Q2 Front Tire 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 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 Dunlops 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 Dunlop Tire Tips Guide (pdf)

Fit
Small
True to Size
Large
I got this Jackit in black size large I'm 200lb (mid built#, 3 weeks ago and tested it out almost every day and this is what I found.
My review
Review is based on for motorcycle use and fashion style/sence.
Bang for the Buck. 4/5
It is a vary pricey jacket. The following will reflect on why I gave it 4/5. Plus Bang for the Buck is really based on if its worth it to you and what your looking for.
Style 5/5
It's Vary Sexy. Colours are all well picked. Style gives off that Bad as look. down and dirty if I want too. With the help of D3O the Jacket almost look like that armours not even there.
Comfort. 5/5
The leather is super soft, easy to move and with the D3O all the armour hugs the body,shoulder elbows and back).
Protection & Durability. 4/5
1)D3O Armour is slowly being used in Jacket, Gloves, Pants ect. How well they work. I'll update on that fact.
But what I found in the jacket is the back Armour is placed a bit high and the D3O is to short does not protect the lower body. I did buy a larger and longer Viper D3O back armour. on my normal jacket it will end just before the top of my bottem. but on the Icon Chapter its still only 3/4 down my back. So no this will not protect your lower back.
2) The Zippers look really good and the handles are big and useful. The bad part is, if you dont have a tank cover Say bye bye to the paint. If you walk and have a habit of rubbing the arm to the side of you body/ say Bye Bye to the top skin of the side of the jacket. The zippers will eat it open or cloesed. the back vent zipper will skrich up any thing agenist it. so passangers beware. So all in all good look, bad zipper.
Air Flow. 3/5
I have Owned 4 High brand leather motorcycle Jacket. My View on the Air Flow on this Jacket is average Not great. Not bad ether. helps a bit taking the liner out but not bad only average.
Features. 5/5
Lots of pockets, Big tab zippers. Chick magnet J/K.
Not much to say more about that.
Fit. Is true to size for me my be different for you.
End of review
Hope this helps you all.
thanks for reading.
Yes, I recommend this product.
