New innovative Nokian Tractor King premieres at Euroforest in France

Tue June 19 7:06 AM 2018 in category Company news

Nokian Tractor King is presented for the first time in public at Euroforest 2018, along with Nokian Tyres’ complete range of forestry tyres.

As a culmination of long experience and intense development process, at Euroforest 2018 Nokian Tyres presents many cutting-edge innovations that help professionals to get the most out of their CTL machines, skidders and tractors.

Revolutionary from surface to core 

Nokian Tractor King features radical new thinking in tractor tyre technology. It was designed for a reason: There is a growing demand in forestry, road maintenance and earthmoving for a strong tyre that combines supreme traction with premium on-road qualities.

Usually increasing traction of the tyre means losing some of the driving comfort.

“Having a team with so much experience and so passionate about what we do gave us opportunity to innovate and create a new kind of tyre without sacrificing one or the other key quality”, says Caleb Claassen, Nokian Heavy Tyres Designer.

The durability, wear-resistance and environmentally friendly production process of the new Nokian Tractor King make it a sustainable choice for modern forestry, giving the driver peace of mind in all conditions.

Innovations for daily work

With over 120-year experience Nokian Tyres makes forestry work all over the world safer and more sustainable. From game-changing ideas to the tested and trusted products, in the very core of Nokian Heavy Tyres business is knowing the world where tyres operate in. Driven by real life, Nokian Tyres constantly aims to exceed all previous achievements. So, in the end of the day, the work gets done safely and efficiently. Technology and service leadership come from experience and innovation, from deeply valuing the daily work.
