High technology comes to scooter riders
Today’s scooters cover a broad spectrum of size and sophistication, and Dunlop’s all-new Scootsmart tire is designed to meet the demanding requirements of today’s scooter market by including innovations normally reserved for Dunlop’s full-size motorcycle tires.
The Scootsmart introduces an unprecedented level of technology to scooter riders. Borrowing heavily from Dunlop’s recently released performance touring tire technology, the Scootsmart combines an advanced tread pattern and tread compounds to deliver an optimum mixture of grip, handling, mileage and wet-weather performance. It’s also available in a wide range of sizes to fit a variety of scooters and small displacement bikes, including the popular Honda Grom.
Inspired by Dunlop’s performance touring tire design, the Scootsmart’s tread has a higher sea/land groove distribution in the central area of the tire to enhance performance in the wet, and fewer grooves in the shoulders of the tire to increase grip and cornering performance. Deeper tread grooves in the central area maintain wet-weather performance throughout the tire’s lifecycle. The inclusion of long lateral grooves and multi-directional sub-grooves offer more efficient water drainage and also optimize contact pressure for high mileage and more even wear over the life of the tire.
Key features of the new Scootsmart include:
