2017 in Colchester, VT - Nokian Tyres introducted the most advanced snow tire in the industry Nokian Hakkapeliitta 9. The Hakkapeliitta 9 featured a new adaptive stud concept, which features two designs of studs on the tire for use during specific driving conditions, such as braking or accelerating and cornering, ensuring optimal traction in all winter conditions.
Nokian winter performance is no secret
“Unique to the Hakkapeliitta 9, the new stud technology features a dedicated, tailored stud for the center of the tread and a separate stud for the shoulder areas.” The studs in the center area maximize reliable longitudinal grip during acceleration and braking; the tire is supported by the optimal shape of the studs’ body, lower flange and hard metal center. The longitudinally wide hard metal pin on the center studs offers a maximum grip surface, enabling the best possible longitudinal grip.
In an effort to produce safer, more eco-friendly tires, Nokian Tyres developed the Eco Stud 9 concept for use in the Hakkapeliitta 9. The Eco Stud 9 concept is incorporated into both the center rib and shoulder studs to reduce road wear and ensure a quiet ride.
