This is the latest addition by Nokian in their winter tire lineup: the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 9!
At the heart of that new tire is the unique, patented Nokian Tyres Functional Stud Concept. The new Nokian Hakkapeliitta 9 uses two different types of stud! When you brake or accelerate, the studs in the center area maximise reliable grip. The studs on the outer areas provide first-class grip when you turn the wheel in the slippery curves. Whether you encounter ice or snow, the studs will always keep their grip and you on the road.
If you don’t like road noise with studs, not that the Hakka 9 has the lowest tire noise and fuel consumption of the studded tires in its product family!
The strong High Tensile Steel belt structure makes the tire light but hard, which can be felt as precise handling during evasions and lane changes, even at higher speeds. Improved cut and puncture resistance also improve the mileage.
We tested those this spring in Ivalo, Finland under the northern lights of White Hell, Nokian’s test facility. Did you know that Nokian was the first to have developed a winter tire for harsh climates? This Finnish company has extensive experience in the field! Nokian Hakkapeliitta 9 through the Hakkapeliitta R2 or Nokian Nordman 7, Nokian products are recommended by CarQuestion!!
So sit back and enjoy this review of the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 9!
