Hakkapeliitta R5


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.


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.


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

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. Compared to its predecessor, the new Hakkapeliitta R5 has 40% more 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.

Safe and green mobility

Hakkapeliitta R5 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 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.
