Sprint Filter’s P16 is the RACE ONLY version of Sprint Filter’s patented polyester tissue, and is the culmination of more than 60 years of research, development, and experience at the highest levels of competition.
In independent testing carried out by University of Wales – Trinity St David, Sprint Filter’s P08 polyester tissue, the “standard” tissue found in Sprint Filter replacement air filters, provided the best airflow of any leading brand filter, including leading brand “race” filters.
By comparison, Sprint Filter P16 provides almost double the airflow of P08.
Polyester P08: Filtration: 80 microns – Airflow: 5.050 lit/m2/s
Polyester P16: Filtration: 160 microns – Airflow: 10.000 lit/m2/s
P16 is a RACE ONLY filter and is not suitable for road use due to the loss of filtration performance below 160 microns.
So where increased air flow will improve your bike’s performance, P16 will take fullest advantage while also providing improved filtration, contributing to the longevity of your engine.
Improved Fuel Economy
P08’s precision-manufactured, ultra-fine polyester filter element provides air flow that is more consistent than typical after-market cotton and foam filters. Air flow consistency helps the bike’s ECU maintain the optimum air/fuel mix, resulting in improved fuel economy.
Virtually maintenance free
To clean your Sprint Filter P16, simply remove the filter from the airbox, blow it clean with compressed air, and re-insert it. No messy washing, after-market cleaners or oil treatments required, saving you valuable time and money!
Being man-made, the P16’s polyester material will, if properly looked after, display no discernible deterioration or loss of structure or performance over the lifetime of your bike.
With 60 years of experience in producing air filters, and success at the highest levels of competition (including MotoGP, Moto3, World SBK & BSB), you can be confident in the quality of materials and manufacture of your Sprint Filter P08 air filter.
