We put the Sportmax Q3+ through 150 miles of street riding along freeways, Austin’s city streets, and the rolling backroads of Texas hill country aboard a fresh Honda CBR1000RR. The Q3+ didn’t feel harsh across the expansion-joint lined highways and gave us the traction we desired in both low-speed and high-speed turns, even when coming straight off a gas-station break. When riding on the street the last thing you want is to be worried about your tires—you’ve got enough things out there demanding your attention. The Q3+ was invisible to us during the street segment of our ride and we mean that as a compliment. While rain threatened us throughout the day, it never came, so we didn’t get to test the tire in a wet street scenarios. However, since it’s forbearer the Q3 performed admirably in wet conditions, we don’t expect much change there with the Q3+.
