Maxxis ArcticTrekker NP3


The Maxxis ArcticTrekker NP3 is a studded winter tire tailored for passenger cars. Introduced by the renowned Asian manufacturer, this tire embodies the essence of its name, "ArcticTrekker," by offering superior traction properties. This is achieved through the integration of advanced technologies and the use of modern materials, ensuring optimal performance on icy and snowy terrains.

Features & Benefits

  • "Scandinavian" Tread Pattern: The V-shaped design, characterized by a central longitudinal "herringbone" rib, ensures increased stability, grip at high speeds, and swift, accurate steering responses.
  • Enhanced Shoulder Zone Design: The shoulder areas of the tread, with numerous individual blocks and a virtually flat profile, amplify the contact patch size. This design ensures consistent stability, even under challenging road conditions.
  • Improved Acceleration and Braking: The unique shoulder zone design, with its multiple independent blocks, ensures superior longitudinal traction properties. This results in stable cornering, shorter braking distances, and efficient acceleration on slippery surfaces.
  • Increased Number of Studs: The tire features a studding system with 14 continuous rows on the tread, ensuring a stable and reliable grip on icy surfaces.
  • Additional Bracing Layer: An extra layer made of nylon cord, wound using seamless technology, reinforces the tire. This design enhances handling, retains the tire's shape under lateral acceleration forces, and offers increased sidewall protection.
