Nordic expertise

  • The Gislaved brand is shaped by its Nordic heritage - a distinctly Scandinavian landscape of extreme weather across all four seasons.
  • Such an environment – with heavy snow falls, freezing temperatures, icy conditions, and sudden downpours – demands an innovative and intuitive approach.
  • From that self-reliant problem-solving mindset, expertise develops. Nordic conditions demand Nordic-style thinking and Nordic-quality solutions.
  • Over a century ago the young Gislow brothers - Carl and Wilheim – faced a problem: how to travel the Nordic roads whatever the season?
  • Their solution was to develop an optimised rubber compound and advantageous tyre profiles to ensure safe driving and smooth performance.
  • Which represented the starting point for our journey.
  • To put it simply: you can trust Gislaved tyres because they’ve been developed on the reliable pillars of Nordic expertise, extensive experience, and cutting-edge technology.
