Race to road philosophy
• Motorsport has always been where Dunlop pushes boundaries, develops technologies and
builds partnerships, allowing our approach to offer motorists and their vehicles the quality,
durability, and endurance of tyres designed from racing through to road.
• In the precise world of motorcycle racing, where engineering meets cutting-edge
computing power, it’s a sobering realisation that the final connection between track and
rider is a patch of material, which started its life in a tree.
• For Dunlop, excellence comes from refining and optimising the connection between tyre
and road. Feedback is crucial. The experience of the street rider is as important to us as the
information stream flowing from the Dunlop GP champion, pit crew member and race
engineer.
• What is learned by our exploits on the track is applied on the road. Our engineers were the
first to apply race tyre performance standards to tyres designed for everyday motoring.

Technology
With engineers and designers across Europe, Japan and North America, Dunlop boasts a truly
global Research & Development operation with innovations quickly put to the toughest test
of all – racing.
 By mixing different compounds, the same tyre can display different
performance attributes at maximum leaning angles than upright
during straight line riding.
 Jointless belt (JLB) construction eliminates the belt overlaps,
resulting in smoother handling and a more stable contact patch with
the road.
 Dunlop’s ingenious NTEC pressure adjust system allows the rider to
optimise the tyre by adjusting the inflation pressure. For dry track
days, deflating the tyre will deliver predictable and tenacious
handling at the edge.
 Jointless Tread (JLT) strip-winding technology allows multiple
compounds to be precisely positioned on the tyre to achieve
advantages in durability, wear resistance, grip from the tread centre
to shoulder and high-speed tyre stability.
