Demands of modern forestry growing – Nokian Tyres’ innovations presented at Interforst

Nokian Heavy Tyres, Nokia, Finland, 16 July 2018 – For safe and sustainable forestry, Nokian Tyres presents a complete range of tyres featured by innovative technology at Interforst trade fair show in Munich Germany, along with a new revolutionary tractor tyre Nokian Tractor King.

The demands set of modern forestry has grown while machine weights, horsepower and road speeds have all increased. Nokian Tyres’ complete range of forestry tyres presented at Interforst offers cutting-edge innovations that help professionals to get the most out of their CTL machines, skidders and tractors. With over 120-year experience Nokian Tyres makes forestry work all over the world safer and more sustainable.

Revolutionary from surface to core

The new Nokian Tyres flagship innovation Nokian Tractor King is a no-compromise tractor tyre for the forestry, road maintenance and earthmoving. It was designed for a reason: There is a growing demand for a strong tyre that combines supreme traction with premium on-road qualities. Usually increasing traction of the tyre means losing some of the driving comfort.

“Having a team with so much experience and so passionate about what we do gave us opportunity to innovate and create a new kind of tyre without sacrificing one or the other key quality”, says Caleb Claassen, Nokian Tyres Designer.

From all-new tread pattern to fortified carcass, the design of Nokian Tractor King is nothing short of revolutionary. The durability, wear-resistance and environmentally friendly production process make it a sustainable choice for modern forestry, giving the driver peace of mind in all conditions.
