Sonder Novas are our durable and quick disc brake wheelset built for gravel adventures and road plus smoothness. Wide-tyred, tough, and versatile, the Nova 650B wheelset is ready for adventure on miles and miles of trails.
Our design team’s expertise along with the factories we use means that we can accelerate trickle-down technology to this price point.
The Nova’s rims are suitable for 47mm road plus up to 2.2" MTB tyres, which means they’ll take any of the vast array of gravel tyres available to suit our specific adventures. Novas are machine built for precision on Sonder’s sealed hubs, which are 12mm thru-axle front and rear.
We’ve designed the Novas to be a reliable, long-term part of your bike. You could go round the world on them. Plain-gauge spokes mean that the Novas will stay strong when you load your bike up with luggage. Sealed bearings make them easy to look after. And a steel free-hub body will take years of abuse and sound beautiful.
Novas give a beautifully balanced ride, spin up to speed quickly and roll easily on super-smooth bearings. They’re the wheels we choose when we want to go gravel riding for miles and miles with the freedom to worry about nothing except for what’s over the next hill.
- Wide rims increase the contact patch of tyres and reduce rolling resistance
