Dunlop - Official Isle of Man TT Tyre Partner
Official Tyre Partner to the IOMTT, Dunlop has competed at every event held since the first race in 1907. Arguably the most successful tyre manufacturer in the history of the event, Dunlop has helped riders to not only win races during that 110-year period, but also to break countless records along the way.
Of the 18 single rider current lap records and race records, Dunlop tyres have carried an impressive 16 of those men and women in to the record books, including four fastest sector times. With legendary riders including John McGuinness and the late Joey Dunlop having shod their bikes with Dunlop tyres, the manufacturer has claimed more TT wins than any other tyre brand, with riders on the top spot of the Senior TT podium for 12 consecutive years.
Last year Dunlop riders claimed an impressive 5 race wins with 4 manufacturers and achieved a staggering 12 podium places overall.
Of the five major categories at the Isle of Man TT – Dunlop riders will be shod with KR106 and KR108 slick tyres in the Senior and Superbike races while in the Superstock, Supersport and Lightweight classes, riders will use the (road-legal) D213 GP Pro tyres, which incorporate Dunlop’s extensive experience around the Mountain Course.
Dunlop's range of motorcycle tyres, such as the GP Racer D212 and all-new SportSmart TT , are developed as a direct result of racetrack innovations, utilising technologies developed for track and road racing in events such as the Isle of Man TT. Dunlop strives to win in open tyre competition and the TT offers no better challenge.
