Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 Tires
The Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 is a touring, winter tire made for passenger vehicles. The diamond-tough grip particles of the rubber compound and the detailed siping pattern enhance the winter weather traction. The tread’s grip claws and other detailed elements increase the number of biting edges gripping the road surface. The lateral grooves and the shoulder’s triangle-shaped slush penetrators help prevent hydroplaning.
The tread’s center rib features number and a snowflake symbol that visually represent the tread wear rate on the tires. The numbers show the tread depth left on the tire in 32nds of an inch, while the snowflake represents the winter traction. They wear along with the tire, and visually portray the tread depth left on the tire and its winter weather gripping capability. This ensures that the model is not used with a worn-out tread.
The Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 enhances the controllability. The directional tread design’s continuous rib upgrades the constant surface contact, enhancing the steering responsiveness and the driving stability. In this manner, the steering becomes faster and more precise in its response to the driver’s commands, while the structure is stabilized against the driving pressure affecting the model. The shoulder tread block placement boosts the cornering ability. This enables the tire to enhance the grip on the road surface during the model’s maneuvering. The constant surface contact ensures a safer braking capability as well by creating friction at the moment of braking.
