The Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 studded tire is a new premium product for the Northern winter, with many different innovations that can be felt and seen every day by the winter drivers. The tire ushers in a new era that combines extreme winter safety and low road wear.
ECO STUD 8 CONCEPT
The placement of each stud in the unique stud distribution has been computer optimised. The studs are not placed in rows, and the stud distribution proceeds evenly across the entire tread surface. This means that no stud is behind another, ensuring the best possible grip under all conditions
Better braking grip. The brake boosters on the rear parts of the tread blocks improve braking grip on snow. The serrated pattern of the brake boosters increases their surface area and improves traction, especially on snowy surfaces.
DIAGONAL 3D SUPPORT SIPES
Quicker steering response. The diagonal 3D support sipes in the centre area stiffen the structure. Steering response is quicker, ensuring safe and precise handling.
SELF LOCKING 3D SIPES
More driving precision. The self-locking 3D sipes on the outside shoulder lock the tread blocks together on road contact, improving handling in turns and evasive maneuvers.
