Nokian announced it has completed its flagship winter product line with the launch of the Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck T, a new tire specially designed for trailer use.

Harsh winter conditions set special demands for trailer tires as well. Particularly lateral and braking grip are needed when hauling a timber trailer on small forest roads or moving heavy loads on curly mountain roads covered with ice. The new Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck T gives you more confidence in these extreme circumstances.

“The Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck T is designed to replace the classic Nokian NTR-827 tire”, says Nokian Heavy Tyres Product Manager Teppo Siltanen. “It is a completely new design that boasts all the features that have made the Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck line famous.”

These winter features include the new wide zigzag-shape grooves that improve self-cleaning and grip on snow. There is also a new type of trapeze-shaped siping that keeps its grip even when worn, and a new strong shoulder design that does not mind tight cornering. When extreme winter grip is needed, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck T can easily be studded with its marked stud places.

“It’s important that the grip lasts the tire lifetime”, Teppo Siltanen points out. “Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck T has staggered tread pattern that wears evenly, improving the mileage”.

The tire is suitable for all-year use when installed in the autumn.

“Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck T tire has a low rolling resistance and low tire noise”, says Teppo Siltanen. “We value both the comfort of driving and the environment.”
