Sprint Filter Ducati P08 Air Filter SM11S
The Sprint Filter P08 polyester air filter is the culmination of more than 60 years of research, development, and experience at the highest levels of competition. Tests show that P08 offers the best overall combination of performance, longevity and ease of maintenance of any off-the-shelf replacement filter.
The innovative polyester Sprint Filter P08 air filter stands apart from all other special cotton air filters for its increased air permeability along with its more efficient filtration and easy maintenance. The increase in air permeability and better performance in comparison with common cotton air filters is mainly due to two essential elements: the filtering material structure is made of polyester and the filter’s folds are higher. These folds are what allow for the highest filtering surface on panel filters (20 mm) and work to the fullest advantage of air permeability and the quality of dirt filtration. Moreover, the total absence of oil to contain dirt allows for increased air entry with equal surface area. Furthermore, when considering that the filtering surface is very wide, an increase in airflow of approximately 25% is obtained in comparison with a cotton filter, working to the fullest advantage of the engines performance and the guaranteed protection of increased filtration.

More power AND better filtration
Cotton and foam air filters typically boast that they deliver more power than OEM filters through improved airflow. Which is often true; the performance of many bikes can be improved with increased air flow using cotton and foam filters. The problem is however that the improved airflow usually comes at the expense of filtration performance. And poor filtration is not good for engine longevity.
The deep-fold design of the Sprint Filter P08, combined with the ultra-fine but highly permeable polyester material, results not only in increased air-flow but also in superior filtration performance.
In dyno testing the Sprint Filter P08, the Next Gen BMW team saw a >1% power increase over a leading brand cotton “race” filter. And in Sprint Filter’s own filtration testing, the Sprint Filter P08 filtered out 93.13% of 100-micron particles versus 76.42% of 100-micron particles trapped by a leading cotton air filter.
So where increased air flow will improve your bike’s performance, P08 will take fullest advantage while also providing improved filtration, contributing to the longevity of your engine.
Filtration degree 80 micron, with guaranteed air flow of 5,000 l/m2sec. figures make the P08 a very versatile and efficient air filter, suitable for use on the road but with outstanding performance characteristics. Dyno testing of a 4-‐cylinder 1.000cc bikes without control unit remapping, revealed an extra 2.5 HP halfway through the power curve. They are available for a wide range of motorbikes and scooters.
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 P08, 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 P08’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.
