NOKIAN TYRES ARAMID SIDEWALL TECHNOLOGY
Durability and protection for surprising situations
The sidewall compound that is exceptionally durable and puncture-resistant contains extremely strong aramid fibres. The same material is utilised by the aerospace and defence industries. The aramid fibre strengthens the sidewall rubber to withstand external impacts and pressing against the wheel flange.
NOKIAN ECO STUD 8 CONCEPT
Supreme grip on ice and softness of stud impact
Combining the anchor stud, flange design, and the Eco Stud cushion with a revolutionary stud placement ensures supreme grip and soft stud contact on all driving surfaces.
Effective braking on snow
The surface of the tyre consists of tread blocks. The Brake Booster is an innovation that was developed on the rear edges of tread blocks on the edges of the tyre in order to provide additional safety in demanding weather. The Brake Booster is a part of each tread block located on the shoulder area of the tyre; it is a powerful, edged saw-tooth pattern that increases the tyre's contact with the driving surface and effectively increases braking grip, especially on snow surfaces.
