Novatec Introduces Wheelsets for Folding Bikes

Because the market for folding bikes is growing steadily, Novatec (Joy Tech) has developed new wheels for folding bikes. To meet the different requirements of customers the Novatec product range contains four models.

These are the Mini20 Z338 with a 38 millimetre high profile full-carbon clincher rim, the Mini20 J219 with a semi-carbon 19 millimetre low profile clincher rims, the Jacky 20 with double wall 25 millimetre profile rims and the Jonny 18, with double wall 25 millimetre profile rims and with a smaller diameter.

All wheelsets have double butted stainless spokes and alloy nipples to reduce the weight of the wheels as well as Japanese sealed internal bearings to provide smooth rotation.

The Diablo is Novatec’s newest MTB wheel set using a special front hub. This features a 4-in-1 system in the front and the 3-in-1 system in the rear. These universal wheels are suitable for cross country, all mountain, enduro, free ride & down hill.

The axle parts can easily be changed to fit to the requested axle specs. This is a big advantage, reducing the amount of different wheel specifications needed to be kept in stock. The Diablo has been laced with the Sapim Race, a stainless double butted spoke.

They all come in black except for two silver spokes that indicate valve position. The Sapim nipples used have Polyax/S.I.L.S. (Inside Lock System). This system provides for easy maintenance of spoke tension and protects the spokes from bending or breaking.
