THE TUBUS NOVA is a great-looking stainless steel front low-rider rack, built in the same design as the chromoly steel Tubus Ergo.  It is a beautiful companion to either the Cosmo or Fly Stainless Steel rear racks.  And it is remarkably close in appearance to the titanium Tubus Airy and Logo Titan racks.  Like the Ergo, the stabilizing hoop that crosses over the tire adds strength and rigidity to the system.  The low-rider mounting system keeps your load’s center of gravity down, improving your bike’s handling.  The lower design creates multiple mounting options for lower pannier hooks.  And it looks great on your bike!

  • The weight is 382 grams (13.5 ounces).
  • The load capacity is 10kg (22 pounds)
  • The Nova fits both 700C and 26 inch wheels.
  • The Nova has extra mounting tabs for mounting fenders directly to the rack, so you will not have to share your behind-the-fork-tip mounting eyelet between rack and fenders. There is plenty of clearance for most tires and fenders within the rack hoop that crosses over the top of the tire.
  • A front and rear set of stainless steel racks will look great on your bike – and they will look great for many years to come – no paint to scratch!  Check out my Tubus Matched Rack Sets!
  • Please note that bicycle manufactures don’t all place their mid-fork braze-on rack fittings in exactly the same relationship to the lower fork-tip eyelets, and there are variations in bike design, fork angle, and fork rake etc.  This means that even with the Nova’s built in adjustments, you may not be able to get your rack top rails perfectly level.  Don’t worry.  Your packs will stay mounted securely even if your rack is not level.
