Different stud types for different driving conditions. This simple, yet ingenious, concept has helped make the Hakkapeliitta 9 Studded a top-performing winter tire. Nokian’s patented Functional Stud Concept gives you different types of studs on the same tire, ensuring you’re always in control, regardless of the road conditions. When braking or accelerating, the studs in the centre of the tire tread maximize grip. When cornering, the studs nearer the shoulder areas engage to deliver firm handling on slippery surfaces. To address concerns of road noise, Nokian employs its Eco Stud cushion, a system that effectively dampens road contact, keeping noise to acceptable levels while also reducing road wear. This tire received either ‘very good’ or ‘excellent’ ratings across all winter driving conditions, as well as solid reviews for dry and wet handling through our independent testing program. Not available in Quebec.

Kal's Test Results

"Superb on ice, very good on snow, acceptable in other conditions. A studded tire that does not compromise every other performance surface in favour of ice traction."

?Summer vs Winter Tests

BRAKING

We varied our approach speeds by driving surface and by season for two reasons. First, this represents how most Canadians would normally drive on that surface in each season. Second, testing in both seasons provides an indication of how a tire's performance will be affected by road temperature.

CORNERING

To understand how road surface temperatures affect the cornering performance of a tire, our cornering tests are completed in both summer conditions (dry and wet pavement, and gravel roads) and winter conditions (dry, wet and icy pavement). Please note that slush is also tested but completed in a specific slush cornering test..

?Independent & Objective Testing

The independent tire testers conducted extensive tests to determine how the tires in our core line-up perform in a range of conditions in both summer and winter. To maintain neutrality, no driver knew the specifics of the tires they were testing each time. All results were analyzed and processed by the testing group and then provided to Kal Tire for sharing with our customers.

In spite of weather which closed roads and put other vehicles into spins and slides, performance was excellent as long as I drove to conditions. Superior.
