Created for professional and amateur drag racers, Dunlop Motorcycle Tires has created the new Dragmax in 190/50ZR17 size, the most popular size for serious drag racers on metric and V-Twin motorcycles.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (PRWEB) March 30, 2020

Dunlop has never focused its considerable engineering experience on building a drag racing tire until now. But the time was right to support the drag racing market due to the higher demands of the Pro Street Bike class, where horsepower and speeds have achieved new levels in recent years.

Professional and amateur drag racers that are required to run DOT motorcycle tires had few choices. So, Dunlop created the new Dragmax in 190/50ZR17 size, the most popular size for serious drag racers on metric and V-Twin motorcycles.

The Dragmax is a radial tire that utilizes Dunlop's exclusive N-TEC construction, similar to that of Dunlop's rear road racing slicks. N-TEC combines the benefits of cut-breaker construction, which increases stiffness, with continuously-wound aramid Jointless Tread construction for maximum feel and stability.

This design allows racers to run very low pressures, increasing the footprint for maximum traction.

The compound is also very soft, the softest street compound Dunlop has ever produced in its Buffalo, NY plant.

A completely new profile that's wider and flatter than a typical hypersports tire also helps lay down a bigger footprint. And the tire's construction minimizes centrifugal growth to keep that footprint as consistent as possible, which also reduces the risk of de-beading.
