Nokian Cryo Crystal Concept

The most advanced non-studded winter grip

The diamond-tough grip particles in the rubber compound grip the driving surface and improve the tire's ice grip. 

 

Pump sipes

Excellent grip on wet and icy roads

The pocket-shaped pump sipes on the tread blocks of the tire's outer edges ensure good contact with the driving surface.

Slush grinders

Prevent slush-planing

To prevent slush-planing, sharp triangle-shaped slush penetrators were designed on the critical shoulder area. The slush claws on the shoulder area allow for optimal grip even in thick slush, and prevent the accumulation of slush between the tread blocks.
