First-class winter traction tyre for heavy-duty vehicles. Optimal grip even in extreme conditions and excellent wear resistance. Stable driving response.
Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E (Extreme) is true to its name: it's right at home in the harshest and most demanding extreme conditions. This newcomer, custom-designed for the Nordic environment, combines outstanding grip with excellent wear resistance. The tread design features more than 1,100 efficient transverse sipes, forming a dense network that helps maximise grip. The aggressive, arrow-shaped tread design and the sharp front edges in the tread blocks enhance traction and braking grip, increasing the grip on icy roads and in snow.
Effortless resistance on rough roads
Superb wear resistance was achieved by using a new type of rubber compound in the tread that was specially designed for the Nordic conditions. The outer rubber layer ensures excellent winter properties: the tread holds its grip in changing conditions. Meanwhile, the lower rubber layer reduces heat build-up and, thereby, decreases rolling resistance.
Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E delivers a sharp and precise driving response.The sturdy tyre structure and staggered, sequential tread blocks ensure high driving stability for a heavily-loaded combination vehicle. The pronounced arrow pattern also increases driving stability. Staggered tread block placement helps keep tyre noise pleasantly low.
Winter Safety Indicator – a new innovation
The new innovation featured in the Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E is the Winter Safety Indicator (WSI), which indicates when the tyre’s best grip is available in harsh winter conditions, on icy road, in deep snow or wet slush.
The Driving Safety Indicator (DSI) indicates groove depth. The numbers stamped on the tread show the remaining groove depth in millimetres. The numbers fade, one at a time, as the tyre wears down.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
