Hakkapeliitta R5 SUV


Winter can be unpredictable and hazardous, but your tires should not. The new Hakkapeliitta R5 SUV 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. 


Winter weather offers many challenges for drivers, from snow- and ice-covered roads to large cracks and potholes that can weaken and damage the asphalt. The Hakkapeliitta R5 SUV has a strong body structure which further improves driving stability and durability. The Aramid Strong sidewalls offer durability and protection for demanding driving conditions. The strong, synthetic aramid fiber used in the compound reinforces the sidewalls and makes the tire more resistant to impacts and cuts that could otherwise easily break it. Accidental tire damage can be costly, but the Aramid sidewalls may prevent the damage altogether.


Starting from the material selection, the new Hakkapeliitta R5 SUV has been designed to leave a smaller carbon footprint. The SUV tailored Green Trace tread compound offers excellent winter grip, great mileage and low rolling resistance with improved stability and durability. The stiff compound works across a wide temperature range and offers excellent service life while the low rolling resistance generates fuel savings and cuts down on harmful emissions.

Impeccable ice grip

Arctic Grip Crystals. The microscopic, third-generation 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.

Superior grip and handling

The new Double Block Grip design offers superior grip and handling, which can be seen especially on the shoulder areas of the tire. The stiff row of tread blocks starts from the center and is split in two moving towards the shoulder area. The new Hakkapeliitta R5 SUV has increased amount of tread blocks on the shoulder and intermediate area. This increase means that the contact area has more rubber touching the surface, which results in better grip on slippery surfaces.

Durability and protection for surprising situations

Aramid Strong Sidewalls. 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.

Safe and green mobility

Hakkapeliitta R5 SUV is a durable, comfortable and extremely energy efficient winter tire. Lighter rolling saves fuel and extends the range of electric vehicles. Due to the lightly rolling tread design and the new Green Trace compound, the rolling resistance of the Hakkapeliitta R5 SUV has been improved even further. The eco-friendly driving features come from ingredients like natural rubber, recycled steel, plant derived oils and pine resin. More than one third of the new compound consists of renewable and recycled materials.

Patented safety

The patented Winter Safety Indicator (WSI) in the tread further improves safety. It displays the remaining tread in millimeters together with a snowflake symbol. The snowflake remains visible until four millimeters of tread remain. Once the snowflake has worn out, purchasing new winter tires is recommended to help ensure driving stays safe.
