Dunlop Sport Classic, the new tire for classics

Dunlop Sport Classic

Dunlop, one of the world's leading tire brands, announces the launch of the new Dunlop Sport Classic. The tire has been developed to meet the needs of classic riders and is optimized for classics from the '60,' 70 and '80 years'.

Strong classical heritage

The Dunlop Sport Classic is the newest addition to a long series of tires from Dunlop's history. From the '50' to '70' years, the tire manufacturer gained a lot of fame with a series of racing tires (in particular Crossply CR65 and R5 patterns) for Touring and GT Le Mans racers. In addition, Dunlop introduced the Aquajet tire within the high-quality segment during the 60 years. These two series remain in production. This allows participants in historical races and tour rides to continue to use these tires.

Classic appearance, modern performance

Dunlop Sport Classic offers owners of classics a tire with a classic face, while the road and braking capacities have been matched to the conditions of today. Dunlop applies the latest construction and compound technology, which includes grip, stability and steering stability in wet and dry conditions.

Shoulder block technology

One of those modern applications comes from the shoulder block technology. Robust shoulder blocks and reinforced connections provide more rigidity to optimize power transfer. This offers improved road and brake behavior in dry weather, while at the same time maintaining the steering feel that is so characteristic of classics.

When and for which classics

The band comes on the market this month and is available for the following classics and in the following sizes.
