Dunlop SP Sport Bluresponse is the successor of Dunlop SP Sport Fastresponse. Compared to the previous model, Dunlop SP Sport Bluresponse ensures a 30% higher fuel saving! If we compare this model to the tyres of competitive brands, Dunlop SP Sport Bluresponse features a braking distance shorter by 2.8 metres on wet and by 3 metres on dry surfaces!
Dunlop SP Sport Bluresponse is a tyre that will delight drivers who value top quality and maximum performance on any surface. The model was made using a special polymer compound which guarantees a very good grip. The excellent parameters shown on wet roads are facilitated by the wide grooves located in the central part of the tread which are responsible for water drainage and eliminate the risk of aquaplaning. The tread features an asymmetric pattern which is the perfect solution for variable weather conditions, enabling the tyre to behave well on both dry and on wet surfaces.
Dunlop SP Sport Bluresponse was developed using ecological solutions. The structure of the tyre helps reduce fuel consumption and, consequently, therefore limiting its CO2 footprint. This is supported by its aerodynamic shape and the compound that reduces the amount of heat emitted. With Dunlop SP Sport Bluresponse, the drive becomes more comfortable and convenient.
Its greatest asset is its low noise level. This is made possible by the closed grooves located in the tyre shoulder, which dampen the noise generated by the tyre and at the same time reduce the sounds coming from the outside. Thanks to the flattened tread profile, the model offers a larger area of tyre-surface contact. This provides better stability and helps maintain the driving track. One interesting innovation here is the use of a multi-angled tread which, by employing 10 different radiuses, ensures a higher driving precision and results in better driver control over the vehicle when cornering.
In 2016, Dunlop Sport BluResponse was ranked 3rd in tests organised by ADAC for size 185/65 R15 tyres.
