The Nokian Noktop 21 Drive Axle Tread Is Renewed


Since February 2024, Noktop 21 has a new look and new features. While the time-proven rubber compound, tread pattern and 2-layer Cap/Base structure remain, it now has broader width range of 240–280 mm, added stud holes for every width, clear product markings for identification as well as 3PMSF marking as proof of safe winter use.

“By creating new molds and adding some improvements we gave the classic tread a fresh start”, says Teppo Siltanen, Product Manager at Nokian Heavy Tyres. “With the new 280 mm width, the Noktop 21 range covers the most popular tire sizes very well.”
Over the years, the Noktop 21 drive tread has become something of a legend in the transport industry. Its good self-cleaning properties and remarkable traction have earned the trust of people working on wintry roads. Its tread pattern has also been copied by many other manufacturers.

“Earlier versions of the Noktop 21 tread had a distinctive white stripe, which we later had to leave out for manufacturing reasons,” said Teppo Siltanen. “Now, the renewed Noktop 21 has clear markings with model number, country of origin and winter symbols to prove it is the real deal!”

Optimized for All-Season Use
Retreading makes sense – both economically and for the environment. Particularly in the Nordic countries most heavy tires get a second round of use with quality retreading.

“For all-season general use, you cannot beat the two-layer Cap/Base structure of the original Noktop 21,” added Mr. Siltanen. “The tread profile changes over the winter to become suitable for summer use. And with the new molds and features, the Noktop 21’s success continues.”

Nokian Tyres develops and manufactures premium tires for people who value safety, sustainability and predictability. Inspired by its Scandinavian heritage, the company crafts innovative products for passenger cars, trucks and heavy machinery that give users peace of mind in all driving conditions.
