The SportSmart TT is the first combined road & track tyre from Dunlop for a decade and relies on the company’s experience and success in the FIM Endurance World Championship. Since 2000 Dunlop have secured a phenomenal 10 World Endurance Championship crowns.

Dunlop claim the SportSmart TT has “been developed to meet the needs of riders with the very latest sports bikes and performance roadsters who want to use the same tyre on track and for road riding.”

The ‘TT’ in SportSmart TT stands for ‘Track Technology’ and is not linked to that tiny island in the middle of the Irish Sea. That said, you can be sure that the data gathered by the likes of Ian Hutchinson and Michael Dunlop over the years will in some way have filtered down into this rubber.

Dunlop TrailSmart Max - Dunlop’s replacement to the outgoing TrailSmart has been specifically developed for bikes like the BMW R1200 GS and the Honda Africa Twin. The TrailSmart was first released in 2015 and with bikes like the Ducati Multistrada continually pushing the envelope in terms of performance Dunlop has reacted with this more high-tech rubber.

The TrailSmart MAX features a material called rayon in the ply construction which sits alongside the tradition steel belts that give the tyre its rigidity. Dunlop claim, “This gives more precise steering” and that the TrailSmart MAX “gives a quicker warm-up, and much more progressive behaviour in a variety of temperatures and conditions.”

The rear tyre now also benefits from Dunlop's MT or Multitread compound technology. Dunlop state that the mix of compounds has been optimized to give strong mileage performance (a claimed 15% better than the outgoing TrailSmart) whilst offering better cornering performance, particularly on the new generation of higher powered adventure bikes. The TrailSmart Max also features a "Cross Groove Tread" which is designed to improve wet weather performance.
