The Sportmax Roadsport 2 is a new sport tyre aimed at improving the grip and longevity of the Sportmax range, marking an evolution from the popular GPR-300 tyre.
There’s PCL, or Performance Compound Layers, adopted to the rear tyre, with two levels of tread structures to improve the contact grip and grip performance, while also offering degradation restraint over the life of the tyre.
Two new compounds are used, that have a balance of Silica (for wet grip) and carbon with new polymers (for dry grip and wear), and are used in the PCL structure, boosting grip and tyre life. The latest pattern design is also tuned to match the new compounds for a smoother roll.
The UFS-JLB (Ultra Flex Steel Joint Less Belt) achieves better contact feel, and decreases the impression of the tyre being too stiff by knitting together the steel materials. It also improves anti-wearing properties by ensuring a wider contact surface to the road.
The V.B.T.T. (Varying Belt Tension Technology) strengthens the tyre’s stiffness while banked over by controlling belt tension at every angle. Finally the C.T.T. or Chamber Thrust-Tuning technology ensures linear handling in all conditions and over the tyre life.
