Hakkapeliitta 75 years

Welcome to the world of Hakkapeliitta!

Since the beginning, Nokian Hakkapeliitta has called north its home. On the Nordic snow and ice, we have been testing tyres under extreme conditions and at extreme speeds for years, all the while accumulating experience and widening our know-how. Hakkapeliitta, the world’s first winter tyre for passenger cars, saw the light of day in 1936. We are constantly developing the tyre, which has already claimed the most test wins in the world. Know-how accumulated over generations and strong expertise in all winter conditions can be seen and felt in every Hakkapeliitta. This safety pioneer is known everywhere that winter is experienced. So stop for a while, enjoy the winter, and read the tale of the snow and ice champion.
