Nokian Hakkapeliitta R (Discontinued)

Non-studded Supremacy

Nokian Tyres’ new Hakkapeliitta R Nordic studless winter tires are advanced versions of the highly successful Hakkapeliitta RSi. The new Hakkapeliitta R is designed to function on all winter conditions and temperature fluctuations while maintaining grip on any road surface … ice, snow, wet, dry. Winters are becoming more unpredictable. The Hakkapeliitta R masters all winter conditions to maximize your safety.

Excellent Grip on Wet Ice and Snow

The Hakkapeliitta R’s superb grip on wet ice comes from the innovative “Pump Sipes” on the buffed shoulder area. Each Hakkapeliitta R has around 900 “Pump Sipes” that efficiently wipe the wet ice dry and help the tread rubber establish a direct contact with the road. Each “Pump Sipe” has a small water pocket that boosts the removal of water at the point of contact with the road.

Other safety features of the Hakkapeliitta R include sharp shoulders to improve lateral grip, break boosters on the back of the tread block, center rib to increase driving stability and new “Multitread” design promotes even wear and low heat generation.

Ultra-Low Rolling Resistance

The new Hakkapeliitta R has the lowest rolling resistance of any tire in Nokian Tyres product line. Low rolling resistance not only saves you money at the gas pump but it also reduces your carbon footprint by lowering your CO2 emissions. The Hakkapeliitta R can save you .21 gallons of gasoline for every 100 miles you drive compared to a standard all-season tire. This will add up to a significant fuel cost savings over the life of your tires.
