11 Dunlop Racing Tyre range 2013
22 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, its 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.

44 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. Dunlops 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.
