Dunlop Sportmax Q-Lite: Sports touring performance for lightweight bikes

Dunlop Sportmax Q-Lite launched for the lightweight sector
Sports touring performance with enhanced mileage 
Tread pattern inspired by Dunlop’s range of hypersport tyres
Dunlop has launched its latest sports touring tyre, Sportmax Q-Lite, which combines hypersport-style performance with a high-mileage tread and improved handling. This mix makes the Sportmax Q-Lite suitable to tackle the demands of daily riding on lightweight bikes, such as the 125cc and 250cc categories.
The tyre brings hypersport design and performance to the lightweight sector. Advances in the single radius profile of the Sportmax Q-Lite gives the rider a similar feel at any speed or lean angle. This feature is crucial to giving riders a consistent level of confidence whether riding in the city or navigating a twisty road. 
Sportmax Q-Lite replaces the TT900 GP and offers a 60% mileage improvement compared to its predecessor1. It is also a marked improvement in overall grip and handling thanks to breakthroughs in tread design allowing for an optimised contact patch even under high loads.
Dunlop has developed a bespoke compound for the Sportmax Q-Lite. It features a full carbon compound with state-of-the-art grip resins that provide added grip on both wet and dry surfaces by optimising the pattern design, tyre profiles, tread compound and casing construction.
The hypersport-inspired tread pattern gives it a sporty appearance with grip and handling to match. Structurally, the tyre casing stiffness has been optimised per individual size by adjusting the carcass construction and number of breakers. Furthermore, groove shapes were developed using FEA (Finite Element Analysis) simulation to optimise mileage and reduce uneven wear. 
Luca Davide Andreoni, Marketing Manager, Dunlop Europe: “Dunlop Sportmax Q-Lite is a great combination of style and technology, blinking the eye to young motorcycle enthusiasts who are looking for outstanding grip and protection combined with a stylish design."
