The size selection of Nokian Powerproof SUV offers 29 products from 17 to 21 inches, with speed ratings of V (240km/h), W (270 km/h) and Y (300 km/h). The new products will be available to consumers in the spring of 2020.

Notable Features

Nokian Powerproof SUV is a UHP summer tire developed by the Finnish tire maker specially for the owners of powerful SUVs who mostly drive down the highways of the Central Europe. This model is characterized by dependable traction at highway speeds and on wet pavement, and, as the manufacturer claims, exceptionally long tread life and ride comfort. A new model of the summer season 2020.

The appearance of the Nokian Powerproof SUV was just a question of time. The passenger-car model Nokian Powerproof, which debuted a year before the SUV-version, fitted in perfectly with the tire maker’s range, taking its summer product to a higher level in the independent comparative tests. For example, in two of the five tests performed in 2019, the Powerproof model was able to win a few prizes, keeping up with the leading manufacturers of Ultra High Performance tires.

We should hardly mention the fact that the Power Proof SUV model utilizes a fair number of technologies that were used in the passenger-car tire series, specifically, the Dual Zone Safety concept. This technology ensures that the contact patch that is under pressure will always stay the same, and the car’s behavior will remain predictable. Dual Zone Safety concept

According to the concept, the tread pattern is divided into two functional zones: the outer Power Zone, focused on increasing the crispness of steering response, and the inner Wet Safety Zone, which ensures maximum safety on wet pavement.

The tread pattern, as well as the heavy-duty reinforced inner construction of the Nokian Powerproof SUV, are optimized for the exacting demands and high speeds. They ensure good stability on wet and dry pavements from the first moments of spring to the first light frosts in autumn.

The sipes in the shoulder blocks is one of the distinctive features of the passenger-car Powerproof tires. The extra-sturdy Aramid sidewalls make the model more resistant to sudden shocks and cuts.

The Dynamic Grip SUV rubber compound was created with a special focus on heavy SUVs. It ensures extra road adhesion, serves to reduce rolling resistance, and extends the Powerproof SUV tread life.

The Nokian Powerproof SUV was released simultaneously with the Nokian Wetproof SUV.
