The new Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 – North America’s Next Generation Premium All Season Tire
Nokian Tyres is introducing the next generation of Premium All Season tires: the new Nokian eNTYRE 2.0. The Nokian eNTYRE 2.0, specifically designed for North America, is designed to give drivers the ultimate in driving safety, comfort and performance in an environmentally friendly tire.
The know-how and latest technology from the world’s northernmost tire manufacturer make the durable and safe Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 class-leading product. The eNTYRE 2.0, the successor to the eNTYRE, uses an inside/outside tread pattern, new groove designs, a modern silica compound, and noise dampening technologies to greatly improve dry road handling, aquaplaning properties, and wet grip without compromising winter grip, all while decreasing noise levels and increasing tread life. This Premium Touring tire also has impressive low rolling resistance, a mainstay of Nokian Tyres’ innovation, to save fuel and reduce carbon emissions. In addition, it the production process uses earth friendly materials to help reduce the environmental impact of the tire.
The Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 comes in a comprehensive selection of 46 sizes, 11 completely new for 2015, from 15 inches to 19 inches and in speed ratings T (118-123 mph/190-199 kph), H (130-148 mph/210-239 kph), and V (149-167 mph/240-269 kph). The majority of sizes will be available for Spring 2015.
High-Modulus Tread and Comfort Base
The new High Modulus Tread compound and Comfort Base compound work together to deliver a smooth and sporty ride. The new, modern silica compound included in the High Modulus Tread Compound uses the expanding molecular structure of the silica and rubber compound to strengthen the stiffness of the tread pattern and boost the tire’s handling properties, delivering confidence in cornering that feels similar to an ultra-high performance tire. The silica in the High Modulus Tread compound works ideally along a wide temperature range, improving wet grip from spring to autumn.
Underneath, the new Comfort Base compound provides unbeatable comfort on bumps and road cracks. This new base compound also reduces heat build-up which improves the wear characteristics of the eNTYRE 2.0 and reduces fuel consumption.
More Effective Water Evacuation with Polished Lateral and Inside Grooves
Although the new Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 contains 14% fewer sipes that its predecessor, giving it ultra-high performance-like handling on dry roads, new innovation have improved its aquaplaning and slushplaning properties. The design of the new Lateral Grooves allows them to store more water from between the tire and the road and accelerates its flow from the main grooves.
The flow of the water displaced by the surface tread is also accelerated by the polished main grooves. Polishing the grooves gives the Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 an even more appealing look and further improves its aquaplaning and slushplaning properties.
Quieter Ride with Silent Sidewall Technology and Silent Groove Design
Nokian has included its Silent Sidewall Technology and Silent Groove Design in this Premium All Season tire for a ride that’s quiet like never before. The Silent Sidewall Technology uses a unique rubber compound on the wing area of the tire to absorb noise and vibration waves before they reach the bead of the tire and travel through the rim and suspension to the inside of the car. This creates a reduced noise level for drivers and passengers.
The Silent Groove Design, also included in the eNTYRE, helps to reduce the annoying whistling noise that comes from the air rushing through the grooves of the tires at highway speeds. Small indentations in the walls of the longitudinal grooves control the air flow through the tire’s tread and prevent any unpleasant whistling sounds. The design reduces noise levels inside the vehicle, which makes driving pleasantly quiet. The Silent Groove Design also improves heat distribution which helps to cool the tire and improve wear resistance.
Added safety and comfort: Driving Safety Indicator (DSI) and information area
The tread surface is equipped with the Driving Safety Indicator (DSI), patented by Nokian Tyres and favoured by drivers who value safety and carefree operation. The numbers indicating the groove depth and the water drop symbol indicating the risk of aquaplaning are immediately visible to a driver inspecting the tires installed on a vehicle. The water drop symbol disappears at the point that less than four millimeters of tread are remaining, indicating an increased risk for aquaplaning.
The location and pressure indicators on the sidewall information area of the Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 improve safety and provide piece of mind. The information area allows for recording the correct inflation pressure and installation location during tire change. Comfort and safety are improved further by a new section that can be used to record the tightening torque of bolts for alloy rims.
Nokian eNTYRE 2.0 – Main Innovations
High Modulus Tread Compound – delivers improved handling properties like that of an ultra-high performance tire without compromising durability or wet or snow grip.
Comfort Base Compound – provides unbeatable comfort over bumps and road cracks while reducing the tire’s heat build-up and improving wear characteristics.
Polished Lateral and Inside Grooves – help to evacuate a greater volume of water and slush more effectively to reduce aquaplaning and slushplaning.
Silent Sidewall Technology – absorbs noise waves and vibrations by using a unique compound on the wing area of the tire for a quieter noise level inside the car.
Silent Groove Design – reduces the unpleasant whistling noise by swirling the air passing through the main grooves of the tire using small indentations on the walls of the grooves. This creates a more pleasant noise level inside the car. This also helps to cool the tire and reduce tire wear.
