“We have products for all needs and segments, with the most well-known being the winter traction treads, especially our recently launched Nokian Hakkapeliitta E2 traction tread.”
The Nokian Noktop Hakkapeliitta E2 is referred to on the manufacturer’s website as “their best winter traction tread so far, minimising the need for chains”. The tyre has been conceived for the drive axle and features a deep, open tread, peg siping and connected-block tread design in order to reduce the need for snow chains on the toughest winter roads. Apart from this, the tyre combines good grip with long service life and low rolling resistance.
In addition to the Nokian Noktop Hakkapelitta E2, in August the Finnish manufacturer launched the Nokian Noktop Hakka Trailer retread together with the Nokian Hakka Truck Trailer tyre as a full tyre life cycle offering.
According to information readily available on Nokian Tyres’s website, the Nokian Hakka Truck Trailer tyre is characterised by higher mileage delivering lower total costs thanks to its impressive service life, that is enabled by its new rubber compound, robust shoulder design and stone ejectors. These characteristics give its users a lower total cost of ownership, which is built upon further thanks to the tyre’s low rolling resistance and fuel-saving capabilities. Furthermore, the open tread pattern and dense siping helps keep the trailer safe and under control in the fiercest of wintry driving conditions.
As for its retread offering, Nokian Tyres has produced a Nokian Noktop retread for the same product that continues to save costs for fleets, whilst also protecting the environment and delivering in performance.
