The tyres improve winter grip, comfort and safety to a new level.
With close to a million units sold, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E tyres and compatible Noktop Hakkapeliitta E retreading materials have been a benchmark for extreme winter traction tyre for over a decade. The new demands set by changing work, trucks and legislation call for an improved version. The Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E2 is a drive axle tyre for extreme winter conditions, combining grip and safety with a low rolling resistance and quiet, comfortable ride.
Working in extreme winter conditions calls for extreme tyres. Jobs such as timber transport often take place on deep or packed snow and ice, and on rough roads. Featuring a suitable tyre for all axle positions, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck product series represents the peak of Nokian Tyres’ winter know-how for trucks and buses. The Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E drive axle tyre was designed for the most extreme demands, minimizing the need for chains on winding forest roads – hence the letter E. Now the new Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E2 tyre builds on the tradition of excellence, improving on many fields.
A lot of engineering and innovation goes into each new Nokian Tyres product. The Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E2 engineering highlights include peg siping that enables deeper reach, better worn grip and less tearing damage. Connected-block system brings consistent rigidity and even wear pattern, while the open center tread design and extra deep-reaching center sipes improve the tire service life.
The E2 tyre carcass has been designed with one or even two retreads in mind. The compatible Noktop Hakkapeliitta Truck E2 retreading material with quality Noktop retreading process make sure the tyre properties are as good as the original in the second round as well.
Nokian Hakkapeliitta Truck E2 tyre will be available in Q3/2020 in sizes 295/80R22.5, 315/80R22.5 and 315/70R22.5. The compatible retreading material, Nokian Noktop Hakkapeliitta E2, will be available in Q2/2020 with tread widths covering the most common tyre sizes. Source
