We observed two bright z > 2 flat-spectrum radio quasars (FSRQs) in hard X-rays to explore the details of their relativistic jets and their possible variability. S5 0014+81 (at z = 3.366) and B0222+185 (at z = 2.690) have been observed twice by the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) simultaneously with Swift/X-ray Telescope, showing different variability behaviours. We found that NuSTAR is instrumental to explore the variability of powerful high-redshift blazars, even when no γ-ray emission is detected. The two sources have proven to have respectively the most luminous accretion disc and the most powerful jet among known blazars. Thanks to these properties, they are located at the extreme end of the jet-accretion disc relation previously found for γ-ray detected blazars, to which they are consistent.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/30294||URL:||https://academic.oup.com/mnras/article/462/2/1542/2589595||ISSN:||0035-8711||DOI:||10.1093/mnras/stw1730||Bibcode ADS:||2016MNRAS.462.1542S||Fulltext:||open|
