The new Nokian Rotiiva AT (All Terrain) rolls effectively both on and off the road. This sturdy, special tyre guarantees optimal performance without compromising safety or driving comfort. It completes the versatile SUV and 4x4 range from Nokian Tyres. Rotiiva AT is excellent on asphalt or gravel, but also moves with ease in lighter off-road conditions. The sturdy structure and tailored, cut-resistant tread compound give the tyre excellent durability when used with heavier cars, as well. The comprehensive selection of sizes is aimed at light trucks, larger SUVs, and pick-ups. The aggressive tread pattern of the new product, and especially its wide, polished grooves maximise grip and handling in rapidly changing summer conditions. Thanks to a unique tread pattern, the tyre also cleans easily and runs effortlessly on a soft platform.
Steady going: The smooth, fluent driving is boosted by the centre rib stabilisers that stiffen the tyre. The driver feels this in the excellent driving stability and quick steering response. More stability is added by the 3D sipes that actively bind the pattern blocks together upon road contact. The heavily siped pattern block sections support each other. Unnecessary sipe movement stops, which further improves handling. Cooling ribs in the shoulder area improve the durability of the Rotiiva AT, which is a tyre that enjoys poor roads and suddenly changing conditions. Lower heat generation means slower wear, more comfortable driving, and more mileage. Stone ejectors on the bottoms of the grooves minimise the penetration of sharp rocks into the tyre. The stone ejectors further increase the operating life of the tyre by preventing tyre body damage, especially when driving on uneven surfaces.
Tailor-made style and safety: The side surfaces of this eye-catching and massive product are different. This means that you can tailor the outlook to suit your tastes upon installation: a more rugged appearance for off-road terrain, and a more stylish and toned-down look for the road. Nokian Tyres' patented Driving Safety Indicator on the tread surface improves safety and driving comfort. Retail sales of this sturdy and versatile new product will begin in the spring of 2012 on Nokian Tyres' core markets.
5-Rib All-Terrain Design: The modern all-terrain design is engineered to provide outstanding performance in both on-road and off-road driving applications. The A/T3 tread pattern exploits a combination of features specically suited to provide solid all-terrain performance, superior all-season traction, excellent stability, confident handling and reliable tread wear.
Broken Centre Rib: The broken centre rib improves soft surface traction without sacrificing handling.
Dual Draft Tread Element Walls: The dual draft angles on the tread element walls aid in reducing stone retention, stone drilling and assist in cut and chip resistance.
Lateral Groove Protectors: Serrated steps in the lateral grooves of the intermediate tread rib reduce the chance of stone retention and stone drilling.
For Multi-purpose and off road 4x4 vehicles (50% on-road, 50% off-road).
The All Terrain T/A KO tyre is totally versatile and offers maximum driving pleasure on all types of path:
'Superior on-and-off-road capabilities and rugged all-terrain performance.'
20% Tougher Sidewalls: Featuring race-proven CoreGard™ Technology to take on the toughest road hazards with confidence.(1)
CoreGard Technology:Tougher Sidewall Rubber: Split & bruise resistant sidewall rubber, derived from BFGoodrich's race proven Baja T/A®KR2 tire. Thicker, Extended Shoulder Rubber: Increased rubber thickness, extending down the sidewall to protect more of the critical sidewall failure zone. Advanced Deflection Design: Computer predicted object path design deflects protruding objects from snagging & splitting the sidewall.
Longer Treadlife On and Off-Road: To extend your adventure.(2)
Specially formulated tread rubber: optimally blended to reduce chip and tear for superior gravel road endurance. Advanced tire footprint shape: results in more evenly distributed stress, for longer more uniform wear. Interlocking Tread Design: provide increased tread block stability, for more even wear over the long haul Stone Ejectors: Rejects stone retention & provides extra tread cleanout protection against stone drilling.
Aggressive All-Terrain Traction: Exceeding RMA Severe Snow Traction performance requirements.(3)to confidently get where you want to go.
Side Biter Lugs: Protruding sidewall rubber blocks that provide increased mud, snow & rock traction, especially in aired-down driving situations. Mud-Phobic Bars: Raised bars in the shoulder tread area that helps to release compacted mud for enhanced traction in muddy and soft soil conditions. Serrated Shoulder Design: Staggered shoulder blocks that provide greater maneuverability in soft soil and deep snow conditions. Locking 3-D Sipes: 3-D active sipe technology, that provides more biting edges for significantly increased snow traction. 3 Peak Mountain Snowflake: Exceeds Rubber Manufacturer Association (RMA) Severe Snow Traction requirements.
(1) Improvement depends on the size of the tire purchased. 20% improvement based on internal sidewall splitting test results derived from a simulated sidewall aggression testing machine (patent pending US20120245859A1) vs. BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A KO tire in size LT265/70R17. Actual on-road results may vary.
(2) On-Road: Based on internal wear tests vs. BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A KO tire in size LT 265/70R17 Off-Road: Based on commissioned third-party gravel endurance tests vs. BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A KO tire in size LT 265/70R17.
(3) Snow: Based on third-party snow traction tests vs. BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A KO tire in size LT 265/70R17 using the ASTM F1805 Test.. Mud Traction: Based on internal subjective mud testing vs. the BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A KO tire in size LT 265/70R17.
