Nokian to introduce radial forestry tire

Order Reprints

Nokian Tyres plc is introducing a radial forestry tire aimed at all Nokian Heavy Tyres' key markets: the Nordic countries, other European countries and the United States.

The Nokian Forest Rider is intended for medium-sized cut-to-

length forest machines. Nokian Heavy Tyres' product development "removed the major obstacle preventing the use of radial tires in cut-to-length forest machines by combining the patented side puncture protection to the radial tire structure," the company says.

Nokian reports field test results show that the Nokian Forest Rider has better traction and lower rolling resistance than corresponding bias tires.

The first Nokian Forest Rider tires in size 710/45 R26.5 will be available in October.
