The Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 and Hakkapeliitta 7 SUV provide extreme winter weather performance, confident control and surprising levels of comfort for a winter tire, according to the company.
Both tires feature a a rapeseed oil-enhanced tread compound and a dense 3D sipe pattern, designed to provide superb traction in harsh winter weather, including dry, wet, slush, snow, and icy conditions. The Hakkapeliitta 7 also uses an aggressive, directional tread design for rapid steering response in harsh winter weather, while air pockets and cushions in the tread pattern dampen tire impact for a level of ride comfort not normally associated with winter tires.
