HIGH-PERFORMANCE, SPORTY CARS
The new Nokian Powerproof summer tyre masters all forms of summer with an enjoyable balance. The extremely stable handling and logical steering offer peace of mind for both high-speed lane changes and sudden braking. The Nokian Powerproof exudes an air of quality and ease of driving, and it belongs in the top tier of passenger car tyres: the UHP category.
"NOKIAN POWERPROOF IS A FANTASTIC TYRE THAT DOES EXACTLY WHAT THE DRIVER TELLS IT TO."

STABILITY AND PRECISE HANDLING
The unique Dual Zone Safety concept ensures precise handling and grip. Power Zone offers excellent handling properties on dry roads, while Wet Safety Zone guarantees advanced aquaplaning resistance, safety and peace of mind on wet conditions.
The Trapezoidal Flow Grooves divide the centre rib and the rib closest to the inner shoulder. The sweeping, winding design of the groove bottoms allows for effective aquaplaning prevention by storing water and accelerating the removal of water from between the tyre and the road surface. The Swoop Grooves also support agile aquaplaning resistance. The groove ends formed in the inner tread blocks have been spread out and their sides have a horn-like indentation to accelerate the removal of water.
MORE DRIVING COMFORT
The hemispherical indentations, reminiscent of a golf ball pattern, on the walls of the longitudinal ribs provide additional driving comfort. The innovation reduces the interior noise and external rolling noise of the vehicle. The design also reduces air resistance and cools the surface of the tyre, in turn improving wear resistance.
