New generation of winter tyres
Forget the forecasts

Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2
– Northern Comfort


The Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2, our new Nordic non-studded tyre, is the number one choice for drivers who value unique driving comfort and ecological travel. The tyre’s safety characteristics on ice, snow, and wet roads were fine-tuned using a new-generation rubber compound, a tailored tread model, and the unique Cryo Crystal concept from Nokian Tyres.

Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 SUV
– Northern comfort and stability


This full-fledged SUV tyre combines firm winter grip with carefree travel and precise, enjoyable handling. The non-studded Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 SUV bears and manages its high wheel loads in a stable yet flexible fashion on both icy and wet roads. It is also excellent on snow and bare roads thanks to its Nokian Cryo Crystal concept, new tread model, and innovations that improve winter grip.

Nokian WR SUV 3
– Extreme performance in snow and slush


The Nokian WR SUV feels at home in the varying European winter conditions, and it has excellent winter grip and driving feel. It can reliably master all of the surprises that winter has in store. The new symmetric and directional tread model, heavy siping, and the winter silica compound tailored for high-powered SUVs ensure an exceptionally stable driving feel and relentless grip even at high speeds.

The latest innovations

Cryo Crystal concept


First-class winter grip, more precise handling. Diamond-tough grip particles that have the appearance of a multi-edged crystal have been added to the rubber compound in order to improve grip on ice by grabbing onto the driving surface.
