Nokian launches Powerproof, Wetproof tyres

Nokian Tyres has prepared Nokian Powerproof and Wetproof tyres for the summer season in Europe. Nokian Wetproof is a test winner in two German automotive magazines Auto Motor und Sport and ACE Lenkrad. The new summer tires are available for sales starting in spring 2019. The new Nokian Powerproof summer tire, designed for fast driving, masters all the forms of summer with an enjoyable balance, the company said.

“The new Nokian Powerproof gives me extremely fantastic steering feedback. That is exactly the feature you want in quality tyres. When the tyre gives you confidence in driving, it also gives you safety,” says Mika Häkkinen, a professional of speed and two-time Formula 1 World Champion, who provided his experience and insight into the testing and product development.

The extremely stable handling and logical steering of Nokian Powerproof offer peace of mind for both high-speed lane changes and sudden braking. The extensive size selection of this UHP summer tyre comprises 51 products from 17 to 20 inches, with speed ratings of W (270 km/h) and Y (300 km/h).

The new Nokian Wetproof tyre is the enemy of aquaplaning. The tyre’s most important features are excellent wet braking abilities and powerful aquaplaning resistance, which make driving easy and comfortable even in rainy days. Nokian Wetproof offers steady performance and added comfort for poor road conditions.

“Nokian Wetproof offers the best possible combination of wet and dry properties. We have been able to improve wet grip and aquaplaning resistance a lot, which means we can offer more safety for the consumers driving in wet conditions. The development has taken us over four years and we have tested dozens of different prototypes across Europe,” explains Jarno Röytiö, Product Development Manager for Nokian Tyres.

The new Nokian Wetproof is offered in the speed categories T (190km/h), H (210 km/h), V (240 km/h) and W (270 km/h), and its comprehensive size range covers 46 items from 14-inch to 20-inch.
