Sonder Novas are our reliable, versatile disc brake wheelset built for all seasons. Wide-tyred, tough, and versatile, the Nova 700c wheelset is ready for adventure on road and trail.
19mm wide rims are perfectly suited for 28 – 50mm tyres, which means more traction through a broader contact patch and lower rolling resistance. 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.
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 keep all our options open – road, gravel, luggage, doesn’t matter!
We lace, build and finish all our wheels by hand, with each one getting a full quality control inspection. Your wheels have a huge influence on the character of a bike. When you are able to look after the whole process, you can produce something truly special. By bringing wheel building to our factory in the UK we increase quality and production efficiency, and reduce the impact on the planet by not shipping boxes of wheels around the world.
