Novatec Jetfly wheels review£359.00

Training wheels only, or capable of more?

BikeRadar score4/5

Novatec has been producing high quality, reliable wheels for numerous prestigious brands for a long time. Its latest own-brand wheels truly deserve to bring the company out of the shadows, though.  

    We think the Jetflys are undersold as ‘training’ wheels. At under 1500g a pair,  with a reasonably fast-reacting,  steel-reinforced freehub,  they feel very responsive,  with just a hint of front wheel flex when you’re really giving it grief out of the saddle.

    The 32mm-deep rim handles impressively in a full range of wind conditions and sustains speed well. The rim is tubeless-compatible,  and although valves and tape aren’t included you do get four spare double-butted spokes and quick release skewers.
