Dunlop recently launched its new Sportmax Q3 sportbike tires at the Dunlop Proving Grounds in Huntsville, Ala.

Ultimate MotorCycling’s President Arthur Coldwells was at the launch, putting the Q3 through various testing, including in the wet (review soon).

The Sportmax Q3, which will hit dealers this month, will replace the popular Q2. The tires are highlighted by their Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT), which places carbon-fiber reinforcements in the Q3′s sidewalls. Dunlops says the many attributes of carbon fiber—high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion—make it a great match for application in the Sportmax Q3.
