Excellent winter safety and lower impact on the road. Better winter grip, driving comfort and wear resistance. Developed for the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8, the Eco Stud 8 concept includes an environmentally friendly new-generation anchor stud, a flange design that reduces stud impact, and the Eco Stud cushion that softens road contact. The unique stud division proceeds evenly across the entire tread surface, thanks to computerised optimisation. Studs are offset and not overlapping, which ensures the best possible grip under all conditions.
Nokian Cryo Crystal Concept
Supreme winter grip, more precise driving response. The rubber compound of Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 and Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 SUV winter tyres contains diamond-tough grip particles that have the appearance of a multi-edged crystal that grip the surface and particularly improve the tyre’s grip on ice. As the tyre wears down, the eco-friendly crystals, which have been evenly distributed into the tread surface, are exposed and continue to offer solid grip.
Better driving stability, excellent wet grip and aquaplaning resistance properties. In Nokian Hakka Black and Nokian zLine summer tyres, the longitudinal ribs next to the inner shoulder are dominated by deep lateral grooves that stabilise handling. At the same time, the new Hydro Grooves innovation effectively prevents aquaplaning by storing water from between the road surface and the tyre, and by guiding the water into the longitudinal grooves.
