Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec

The Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec is designed for sports and performance car drivers looking for both normal agility and grip during autocross or drifting competitions. Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec is intended for those who like to start extremely fast, as well as owners of lightweight cars, who often find that maximum grip is achieved only at high temperatures.

The Direzza Sport Z1 provides track-like traction and is also designed for autocross, drifting, and racing.

The Direzza Sport Z1 tire is not designed for use on snow, ice, and at temperatures below 0. Dunlop Digital Rolling Simulation II (Digi-Tire II) technology recognizes road conditions and possible tire response; Dunlop engineers and designers have developed the optimal pattern - with the optimal position, size, and angle of the grooves. The Direzza Sport Z1 tire is made from a unique compound that offers maximum grip. And the directional tread pattern with sawtooth ribs, wide shoulder blocks, and a wide center rib provides strong contact with the road and improves traction when cornering. Two wide longitudinal channels in the center section, undulating grooves in the shoulder area, and many transverse grooves ensure water drainage and improve grip on wet surfaces. The tire carcass is constructed from two wide steel belt belts, reinforced with a spiral polyamide layer made with JointLess Band (JLB) Technology, which ensures the tire's strength and integrity and excellent ride quality at high-speed operation. The dual-layer polyester sidewall is reinforced with a steel cord, which contributes to precise handling and confidence when cornering.

It is formulated with a high styrene polymer that accelerates heat build-up, which makes these racing tires reach their operating temperatures faster. Special impurities with long, high molecular weight polymer chains have also been added to improve wear resistance.

They perform well on normal roads, race tracks, and autocross thanks to their excellent wet and dry grip and suitability for everyday use. Noise is a completely normal side effect of the large tread blocks often found in Extreme Performance tires. Riding comfort is not considered a top priority in Extreme Performance tires. Wet grip has traditionally been sacrificed to achieve better dry performance. Not stopping there, Dunlop took it one step further with the release this year of the Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec. Marked with the usual five-pointed star on the sidewall (not to be confused with the symbol used to denote Genuine BMW tires), the Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec features a modified rubber compound top layer that improves grip during the first lap of the race when temperatures have not yet reached a high level. Dunlop's tests have shown that wet grip is also improved, as operating temperatures are lower in rainy conditions (than in dry ones), allowing for the benefits of the new compound.

Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 is a durable tire with innovative computer simulation technology. Electronic quality control, the composition of the new rubber contributes to maneuverability, controllability, cross-country ability. The special construction of the cord is responsible for the stability of the tires on difficult road sections. Convenience and safety at the proper level. They are adapted for everyday use on any vehicle. Anyone for whom originality and financial benefits are important can buy tires from the Internet catalog.
