Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck T Completes Winter Truck Portfolio

Nokian Truck T
Nokain Hakkapeliitta Truck T completes Nokian Tyres’s winter truck range.

Nokian’s Hakkapeliitta Truck product line has always intended to deliver and be synonymous with high levels of winter grip and durability. Nokian’s flagship winter product line has now been augmented with a tyre especially designed for trailer use, Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck T.

Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck T Auguments Truck Range

“The Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck T is designed to replace the classic Nokian NTR-827 tyre”, says Nokian Heavy Tyres Product Manager Teppo Siltanen.

Nokian TyresSiltanen continues, “It is a completely new design that boasts all the features that have made the Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck line famous.”

These winter features include the new wide zigzag-shape grooves that improve self-cleaning and grip on snow. There is also a new type of trapeze-shaped siping that keeps its grip even when worn, and a new strong shoulder design that does not mind tight cornering. When extreme winter grip is needed, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck T can easily be studded with its marked stud places.

“It’s important that the grip lasts the tyre lifetime”, Teppo Siltanen explains. “Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck T has staggered tread pattern that wears evenly, improving the mileage”.
