Summer passenger tire Dunlop SP Sport 01 is addressed to drivers who prefer an aggressive driving style. At the same time, the make and model of the car practically do not matter, since this model is produced in an extremely wide range of standard sizes with a diameter of 14 to 21 inches.
Especially for this tire, the company's specialists have developed a completely new asymmetric tread pattern called Tri-AreaTread. As the name suggests, the tread pattern consists of three functional zones, each of which is designed to solve a specific task. This design solution is designed to provide an optimal balance of performance when driving in various road conditions.
The central part of the tread of the Dunlop SP Sport 01 is occupied by four longitudinal ribs, which are distinguished by a one-piece, and therefore rigid structure. As a result, the tire exhibits exceptional driving stability even at very high speeds.
The shoulder area of the tread, located on its inner side, mainly serves as a drainage function, providing high resistance to aquaplaning. It is this part of the tread that is equipped with the so-called "hydraulic blades", i.e. a system of drainage channels, the shape of which resembles blades. Their curved shape prevents the formation of turbulence in water flows, which increases the speed of its passage through these channels.
The outer side of the tread pattern consists of separate blocks. Their sharp edges help improve braking performance, especially on slippery roads.
Another innovation is an additional layer of the frame made of nylon fibers, wound using seamless technology. This layer provides, due to the stability of the tire shape, a more even distribution of external pressure over the contact patch, which not only allowed to achieve more confident behavior at high speeds but also effectively prevents the occurrence of uneven wear.
Main features of the Dunlop SP Sport 01 tire
- Unique Tri-AreaTread tread provides the perfect balance of performance regardless of road conditions;
- Exceptional resistance to aquaplaning, thanks to the special shape of the drainage channels in the shoulder area of the tread;
- Four rigid longitudinal ribs, due to which the tire exhibits exceptional stability when driving, even at very high speeds.
Longitudinal-lateral tread pattern: for sports enthusiasts. Two wide center longitudinal ribs that run along the entire circumference of the tire ensure efficient lateral force transfer. And grooves and grooves help reduce noise. The excellent driving stability and rolling comfort of the SP SPORT 01 tires ensure sporty driving dynamics.
Parallelogram blocks: for those who love quiet driving. The closed outer shoulder design and the new asymmetrical arrangement of the new SP SPORT 01 blocks ensure that high-frequency noise is completely absent from the stimulus.
Hydro blades: increased safety. The SP SPORT 01 is a new milestone in driving safety. The tread pattern, known as "hydraulic blades", was recently developed and is a truly revolutionary innovation. They repel water like a turbine but do not create a spinning effect. This ensures the highest level of safety at all speeds by preventing aquaplaning from occurring.
Seamless Nylon Coating: Prevents tire expansion when traveling at high speeds and provides even traction across the entire width of the tire at all speeds.
Tires are manufactured using modern technologies from high-quality rubber. Electronic control guarantees the stability of the quality of the finished product. The developed tread pattern ensures reliable contact of the tire with the road surface and optimal vehicle behavior on the road.
