When you start life by inventing the pneumatic tire, big things are expected of you. And for going on 125 years, Dunlop has come up big, with breakthrough after breakthrough, paving the way on every pavement from the speedway to the highway. Take a look at some of Dunlop’s innovative technologies below.
Hydro-Paddle Technology™ Our hydrodynamic H-P™ design uses strategically configured tread grooves to help quickly and efficiently channel water out of the way. This keeps the tire in touch with the pavement for exceptional traction.
Multi-Pitch Tread Design Technology™ Certain sound frequencies can cancel each other out. That's the acoustic brilliance behind Multi-Pitch™, which uses different sizes of tread blocks to help negate road noises
Active Traction Sipe System™ In ice and snow, ATSS™ reigns. This breakthrough system, featured on Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D™ tires, uses three unique types of sipes to pull, grip and enhance traction for high-performance cornering, handling and braking.
Dunlop Self-Supporting Technology (DSST) reinforces sidewalls so you can drive for up to 50 miles, at speeds of up to 50 mph, even after a complete loss of air pressure.
Silicarbon Matrix™ What do you get when you cross silica and carbon black? If you're a Dunlop engineer, you get Silicarbon Matrix. If you're a Dunlop driver, you get much better grip in both wet and dry weather.
Traction Web Technology™ The web-like TWT™ tread pattern channels water out of your path, so you can confidently negotiate wet conditions.
Evaqua Grooves™ Angled EVA™ grooves are situated to help efficiently pump water away from your tire's footprint for more responsive handling.
DuPont™ Kevlar™ We integrate this fibrous material to reinforce the sidewall for our tires. That leads to superior road feedback and driving precision for you.
Dimensional Stable Polyester™ We invented a special process that pre-cures and pre-stretches DSP™ ply cords. Results? Long-lasting uniformity and toughness, plus a smoother, more comfortable ride
Max Flange Shield If you've ever damaged a tire on a sharp curb, you'll love MFS. This firm rubber guard extends beyond the rim and wraps around the tire's lower sidewall to help protect against accidental curb damage
