Nokian Tyres Releases Outpost AT All-Season Tire for SUVs

Nokian Tyres invites drivers to extend their boundaries with a new all-terrain tire, the NOKIAN TYRES Outpost™ AT. Outpost AT is an all-season tire for SUVs, crossovers and light trucks that delivers safe, durable driving on any road – or off the road. Forged with features to help drivers tackle the toughest surfaces, Outpost AT is designed to make work productive and leisure limitless. The world’s northernmost tire manufacturer will sell the new all-terrain product to drivers around the globe. New Outpost tire family will strongly support Nokian Tyres’s growth targets in coming years. 

The new Outpost AT provides on- and off-road drivers with versatile, durable driving in all conditions. Its aggressive tread is forged to help SUVs, crossovers and pickups navigate off-road challenges, reinforced with Aramid Shield™ – puncture-resistant Aramid fibers embedded beneath the tread to provide extreme resistance to rugged surfaces and road hazards. New tread design elements help drivers remove limits and pursue adventure on any terrain. Certified with the three-peak mountain snowflake, the tire’s adaptable rubber compound offers a comfortable, confident ride on any surface and in any weather, courtesy of the company that invented winter tires.

“Nokian Tyres is renowned for our deep know-how in tire technology and versatile testing that help keep drivers safe also in extreme conditions,” says Nokian Tyres Head of R&D Olli Seppälä. “Outpost AT is the latest example of that commitment and represents our highest-tech offering for drivers of SUVs and light trucks. We have spent years designing and testing this tire, incorporating new features that will make it a durable, versatile option on and off the road.”

Outpost AT pledges to help drivers extend their terrain, their toughness and their travel through forged features that allow them to follow wherever their adventures lead.

The tire is available in 45 fitments covering a size range of 15 to 22 inches, with LT-metric and SUV versions.

Extend your terrain 

Outpost AT helps drivers remove their limits and confidently go wherever their journeys demand, bolstering on- and off-road experiences through supreme traction for all driving conditions.

The NOKIAN TYRES Outpost AT features a special 3D tread pattern that helps the tire thrive in challenging conditions. The tire’s novel tread pattern reflects the diversity of terrain it is designed to tackle, enhancing grip and handling on any surface, from hot asphalt to soft mud and snow to rutted gravel.

Summit Sidewalls – peaks at the top of the tire’s sidewalls – offer extra grip when the tire sinks into soft surfaces and provide an aesthetically striking design that symbolizes the rugged ambitions of the tire’s drivers. Shoulder notches cement the tire’s sturdy grip at the point where the sidewalls meet the tread pattern.

Canyon Cuts form at the intersection of the 3D tread and the shoulders, allowing drivers to experience extra grip when they encounter unpredictable surfaces. And those surfaces include snow, and slush – Outpost AT is certified with the three-peak mountain snowflake emblem. New Outpost AT is crafted to combine the versatility of an all-season tire with winter handling capabilities.

“Drivers of rugged vehicles want to enjoy their adventures and return home safely, no matter the challenges they have faced,” Seppälä adds. “We crafted the Outpost AT to thrive on mud, snow, gravel and asphalt, because traction and grip don’t just reduce our limits; they help us push through our limits and enjoy our journeys.”

Extend your toughness 

Outpost AT is stocked with technology to protect drivers in the most rugged environments.

Aramid Shield™ technology gives the tire extreme durability and puncture resistance. The tire’s tread and sidewalls are protected by extremely strong Aramid fibers, the same material used in bulletproof vests and the aerospace industry. Aramid embedded beneath the tread helps protect from punctures due to rough terrain and road hazards, while it reinforces the sidewalls to help prevent blowouts from potholes and other obstacles.

Throughout the tread pattern, Gravel guards boost the Outpost AT’s puncture protection. They strengthen the bottom of the tire’s deep grooves, guarding against rocky terrain and allowing the tire to comfortably carve through rugged surfaces.

The sturdy structure of Outpost AT supports high load capacity and makes the tire an ideal option for heavy-duty work and recreation, on or off the road.

“Outpost AT is one of the toughest tires we have ever made,” Seppälä states proudly. “It is aggressive enough to provide ultimate durability thanks to Aramid Shield™ and refined enough to offer comfort along the way.”

Extend your travel 

Outpost AT offers high mileage thanks to a tailored tread whose landscape is forged with protective features.

canyon-deep tread pattern exceeds the depth of predecessor, the Rotiiva AT, by 1,5 mm and LT-metric versions by 2,5 mm. The deepened tread, 11,5 mm and LT sizes 15 mm, extends Outpost AT’s service life and strengthens its ability to master difficult terrain.

Drivers can enjoy fuel efficiency thanks to a durable and sustainable rubber compound crafted to minimize rolling resistance and keep emissions low. As a global leader in sustainability, more than 90 percent of Nokian Tyres’ products rank in the lowest rolling resistance categories.

Three-dimensional siping helps Outpost AT contend with snow, slush and standing water, extending journeys in harsh conditions. And stability supports and groove lifts lend a sturdy structure to the tire, giving drivers peace of mind as they navigate long trips on difficult surfaces.

As always, Nokian Tyres helps drivers know exactly how much tread life remains. Its patented Driving Safety Indicator, available in the latest generation of every Nokian Tyres product, clearly displays the percentage of available tread so drivers know when it’s time to purchase their next set.

“The new Outpost AT is a smart choice which enables the drivers to enjoy the benefits of the tire for a long time. Durability is not only defined by withstanding today’s challenges, but also by providing confidence that the tire will tackle tomorrow’s obstacles,” Seppälä concludes.
