Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 is a brand new tyre designed for Nordic conditions, combining unparalleled winter properties and excellent driving comfort. Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 is a chameleon on the winter roads, adjusting flexibly to changing weather conditions and different degrees of grip on the road.
In addition to its firm grip, Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 offers drivers a uniquely smooth and pleasant driving experience. The pleasant driving experience is down to an innovation similar to that used in good running shoes: air shock absorbers that soften and absorb the impact on the road, creating a flexible and smooth driving experience.
The combination of multi-edged and sturdy anchor studs and air shock absorbers is referred to as Air Claw Technology. This technology also reduces wear and tear on the road, dampens tyre noise and prolongs the service life of the studs.
Tear resistance and smooth rolling
The tyre tread is made from a compound of natural rubber, silica and canola oil, which provides grip in extreme winter conditions, endurance against wear and tear and wet grip. The canola oil increases tear resistance and gives the tyre good grip on ice and snow.
The high proportion of silica in the compound means that Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 has an extremely low rolling resistance, thus reducing fuel consumption and harmful emissions.
Tread pattern improves stability and driving properties. The tread pattern is symmetrical and has a fixed rolling direction. Studs are not included.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
