First-class winter traction tyre for heavy-duty vehicles. Optimal grip even in extreme conditions and excellent wear resistance. Stable driving response.
Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E (Extreme) is true to its name: it's right at home in the harshest and most demanding extreme conditions. This newcomer, custom-designed for the Nordic environment, combines outstanding grip with excellent wear resistance. The tread design features more than 1,100 efficient transverse sipes, forming a dense network that helps maximise grip. The aggressive, arrow-shaped tread design and the sharp front edges in the tread blocks enhance traction and braking grip, increasing the grip on icy roads and in snow.
Effortless resistance on rough roads
Superb wear resistance was achieved by using a new type of rubber compound in the tread that was specially designed for the Nordic conditions. The outer rubber layer ensures excellent winter properties: the tread holds its grip in changing conditions. Meanwhile, the lower rubber layer reduces heat build-up and, thereby, decreases rolling resistance.
Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E delivers a sharp and precise driving response.The sturdy tyre structure and staggered, sequential tread blocks ensure high driving stability for a heavily-loaded combination vehicle. The pronounced arrow pattern also increases driving stability. Staggered tread block placement helps keep tyre noise pleasantly low.
Winter Safety Indicator – a new innovation
The new innovation featured in the Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E is the Winter Safety Indicator (WSI), which indicates when the tyre’s best grip is available in harsh winter conditions, on icy road, in deep snow or wet slush.
The Driving Safety Indicator (DSI) indicates groove depth. The numbers stamped on the tread show the remaining groove depth in millimetres. The numbers fade, one at a time, as the tyre wears down.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
