Dunlop - About the Brand
Dunlop has been associated with sport since John Boyd Dunlop invented the first pneumatic tyre in 1889 and subsequently used to win a major cycling race in Belfast. Since then, Dunlop has been associated with many cutting edge sporting goods being extended to sporting equipment in 1939. It has since become associated with a wide variety of sporting equipment and apparel. It is a leading brand in the badminton, golf, squash and tennis equipment markets due to its particularly strong heritage in racket sports as illustrated by historic association with players such as John McEnroe and Steffi Graf.
