PURE GRIP

Winter can be unpredictable and hazardous, but your tires should not. The new Hakkapeliitta R5 EV covers all northern winter conditions and performs predictably on bare, wet, icy and snowy roads. The new Double Block Grip design offers superior grip and handling, while the excellent ice performance is guaranteed by the unique Arctic Grip Crystals. The microscopic crystals work like built-in studs. As the tire wears down, the crystals emerge and activate a well-needed grip reserve.

PURE SILENCE

Electric cars are quieter than traditional car models, which makes low rolling noise a question of comfort. Lower noise levels can make the journey more comfortable and less exhausting for the driver, which is important, as we want drivers to experience serenity inside the car and minimize noise pollution into the environment. The SilentDrive™ Technology pushes driving comfort to the max. The exceptionally low sound levels are achieved by adding a layer of acoustic foam to the inner liner of the tire. The new Silent Touch tread design maximizes the comfortable driving experience.

PURE ECO-FRIENDLINESS

Starting from the material selection, the new Hakkapeliitta R5 EV has been designed to leave a smaller carbon footprint. The new Green Trace compound offers, excellent winter grip, better mileage and low rolling resistance. To lower the rolling resistance even further, the compound has been specifically optimized for EV use. A large amount of natural rubber keeps the compound flexible under all conditions, while the low rolling resistance generates fuel savings and cuts down on harmful emissions.

Impeccable ice grip

Arctic Grip Crystals. The microscopic, third-generation grip crystals are mixed in the tread rubber. These crystals work like built-in studs, creating sharp, tough grip edges inside the rubber. As the tire wears down, the crystals emerge and activate the much-needed grip reserve.

Superior grip and handling

The new Double Block Grip design offers superior grip and handling, which can be seen especially on the shoulder areas of the tire. The stiff row of tread blocks starts from the center and is split in two moving towards the shoulder area. Compared to its predecessor, the new Hakkapeliitta R5 EV has increased amount of tread blocks on the shoulder and intermediate area. This increase means that the contact area has more rubber touching the surface, which results in better grip on slippery surfaces.

Ultimate comfort and silence

The SilentDrive™ Technology pushes driving comfort to the max. An exceptionally low sound level is achieved by adding a layer of acoustic foam on the inner liner of the tire. The acoustic foam absorbs resonance from the tire’s air cavity, resulting in lower noise levels and increased driving comfort.

Safe and green mobility

Hakkapeliitta R5 EV is a durable, comfortable and extremely energy efficient winter tire. Lighter rolling saves fuel and extends the range of electric vehicles. Due to the lightly rolling tread design and the new, EV tailored Green Trace compound, the rolling resistance of the Hakkapeliitta R5 EV has been improved even further. The eco-friendly driving features come from ingredients like canola oil, natural rubber, recycled steel, plant derived oils and pine resin. More than one third of the new compound consists of renewable and recycled materials.

Patented safety

The patented Winter Safety Indicator (WSI) in the tread further improves safety. It displays the remaining tread in millimeters together with a snowflake symbol. The snowflake remains visible until four millimeters of tread remain. Once the snowflake has worn out, purchasing new winter tires is recommended to help ensure driving stays safe.
