Dunlop Sport BluResponse - Launched

125 years after the first patent of the inflatable tyre, and to mark Dunlops 125th Birthday, Dunlop is releasing a new breed of tyre – the high performance eco touring tyre.



The new Dunlop Sport BluResponse is derived from Dunlops work in motorsport, where the desire for low fuel consumption and good wear properties are starting to become as important as the raw grip of the tyre. The new Dunlop Sport BluResponse comes with motorsport derived polymers, which deliver increased wet grip and performance (European label score A), yet still allow an impressively low rolling resistance to aid fuel consumption (European label score B)

Tested

When independently tested by TUV SUD against the Michelin Energy Saver+, Continental Premium Contact 5, Bridgestone Turanza T001 and Pirelli Cinturato P7, the new Dunlop tyre proved to be pack leading with wet braking of up to 3 meters shorter than the average of leading premium brands, and a 3% faster performance during wet handling tests. The new Sport BluResponse also has a 30% better rolling resistance than its predecessor, the well reviewed Dunlop Sport FastResponse.

Available at launch in 52 sizes over 14-17” rims, the new Dunlop Sport BluResponse should be an interesting tyre to watch. As usual, we’ll be doing our own testing as soon as possible, with a full report to follow.
