Drive axle tyres
Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E
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.
It is recommendable to have the Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E tyres fitted in the autumn. The tyre should be replaced or retreaded when it wears down to the 4mm minimum groove depth.
Economical and environmentally responsible
The Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E, designed for freight transport, buses and timber trucks, is economic and environmentally friendly. The new tyre rolls lightly, which reduces fuel costs. The wear-resistant multipurpose tyre is manufactured without any high aromatic oils that are classified as harmful and stressful to the environment.
