Dunlop has been designing and manufacturing tires for almost 125 years. They have made many breakthroughs in tire performance both on the highways and on the racetracks. Check out some of the technologies Dunlop’s engineers have created over the years:
Multi-Pitch Tread Design Technology™ was designed based on sound frequencies that could actually cancel each other out. Using this phenomenon, Dunlop created Multi-Pitch Tread which uses different sizes of tread blocks to help eliminate road noise for a smooth and quiet ride.
Dunlop Self-Supporting Technology, or DSST, has durable sidewalls that are reinforced so if your tire is punctured you can drive up to 50 miles even if tire suffers from complete loss of air pressure. Capable of support of up to 50mph, these tires can get you safely to a service center and you won’t ever have to worry about getting stranded and having to deal with a flat tire.
Traction Web Technology™ is a web-like pattern for tire treads that provide optimal performance in wet weather conditions. The tread pattern is specifically designed to channel water out away from the tires to provide better traction.
DuPont™ Kevlar™ is built into the sidewalls of Dunlop tires to provide exceptional performance and precision in all-season driving.
Max Flange Shield is a guard against potential curb damage. The rubber flange extends out to protect the rim and the lower sidewall from scrapes or bumps from a sharp curb.
