The new Hakkapeliitta R5 for passenger cars and the Hakkapeliitta R5 SUV for sport utility vehicles and crossovers are made to deliver uncompromised safety and smart driving features for every day of winter. Offering the purest form of safety, the new Hakkapeliitta R5 product range is an innovative combination of pure winter grip, silence and driving comfort. A special introduction into this product family is the Hakkapeliitta R5 EV, a dedicated version for electric vehicles and hybrids.

  • PURE GRIP: Winter can be unpredictable and hazardous, but your tires should not. The new Hakkapeliitta R5 covers all northern winter conditions and performs predictably on bare, wet, icy and snowy roads. The new Double Block Grip design offers superior grip and handling, while the excellent ice performance is guaranteed by the unique Arctic Grip Crystals. The microscopic crystals work like built-in studs. As the tire wears down, the crystals emerge and activate a well-needed grip reserve.
  • PURE COMFORT: Tire noise can affect driving comfort significantly. Lower noise levels can make the journey more comfortable and less exhausting for the driver. The new Hakkapeliitta R5 offers a smooth, comfortable and steady soundscape. The pleasant sound levels have been achieved by eliminating the most disturbing noise peaks the human ear can distinguish. The new Silent Touch tread design offers comfortable and pleasant rolling thanks to the new tread block distribution.
  • PURE ECO-FRIENDLINESS: Starting from the material selection, the new Hakkapeliitta R5 has been designed to leave a smaller carbon footprint. The new Green Trace compound offers, excellent winter grip, better mileage and low rolling resistance. The large amount of natural rubber keeps the compound flexible under all conditions. Low rolling resistance generates fuel savings and cuts down on harmful emissions. More than one third of the materials in the compound are renewable and recycled.

impeccable ice grip

Microscopic, grip crystals are mixed in the tread rubber. These crystals work like built-in studs, creating sharp, tough grip edges inside the rubber. As the tire wears down, the crystals emerge and activate the much-needed grip reserve. 

groundbreaking efficiency

The Hakkapeliitta R5 is the most energy-efficient winter tire ever made. Over the life of the tire, users could save as much as 12 gallons of fuel – helping their wallets and the environment at the same time. And for the first time, we’ve developed a non-studded winter tire just for EVs, the Hakkapeliitta R5 EV. We enjoy rewarding drivers who share our core value of sustainability.

durability for surprising situations

The sidewall compound of the Hakkapeliitta R5 SUV is exceptionally durable and puncture-resistant and contains extremely strong Aramid fibers. The same material is utilized by the aerospace and defense industries. The Aramid fibers strengthen the sidewall rubber to withstand external impacts and pressing against the wheel flange.
