Full Tyre Description

Nokian Line Precise and stable in rapidly changing weather conditions Unique grip and safety for wet roads Comfort and economy The high-performance Nokian Line summer tyre masterfully handles the rapidly changing road conditions in the summer. The new innovations, the Cross-block Sipes and Swoop Grooves, enable the Nokian Line to steer precisely and provide excellent grip, even on roads made slippery by rain. This new tyre, designed especially for high-powered cars and with a good, precise driving feel, offers uncompromisingly safe and comfortable travel from the first moments of spring until long into the autumn. New innovations maximise wet grip The unique Cross-block Sipes on the centre ribs of the tyre work in two ways. Near the outer shoulder, the Cross Sipes combine with the firmer rib to provide driving stability. The more heavily articulated Cross Sipe on the rib next to the inner shoulder ensures soft road contact, while reducing rolling resistance and noise levels. To prevent aquaplaning, separate Swoop Grooves were also shaped in the transversal main grooves on the outer shoulder. These elliptical slots store more water as the volume of the transversal grooves increases. The shape ensures that the firm tyre has excellent wet grip, even when worn. Stable and precise, even at higher speeds The typical inside-outside tread design of the test-winning Nokian summer tyre range adds to driving comfort and makes the tyre easy to steer. The larger, bound pattern blocks on the outer shoulder make the tyre firmer. The strong centre rib supports the mid-section, where a more rigid rubber compound has been lifted below the surface. This ensures safe drivability even at higher speeds and in extreme situations. The precise driving feel is also accentuated by the Double Block Support on the outer shoulder. The shoulder areas are also supported by the 20-degree slants on the groove walls, this provides excellent driving comfort during cornering, lane changes, and evasion. Eco-friendly, comfortable ride The new tread compound, the Nokian Intelligent Silica, is especially developed for higher speeds. The rubber compound represents the latest in technological developments: it works in an exemplary manner in a wide range of temperatures, maximising wet grip. At the same time, it reduces heat generation while driving, thereby improving wear resistance. Thanks to the new rubber compound, tread model and innovations, this new product from Nokian Tyres has exceptionally low rolling resistance. The Nokian Line tolerates varying roads well, rolls lightly, consumes less fuel, and minimises harmful CO2 emissions. New groove depth indicator and info area This wet road champion has a new type of Driving Safety Indicator (DSI), patented by Nokian Tyres, on its tread surface. The new introduction is that the DSI has been made easier to use than ever before. The numbers indicating groove depth and the water drop symbol indicating a risk of aquaplaning have been rotated to be immediately visible to a driver inspecting the tyres installed on a vehicle.
