2018 Passoni Nova



There comes a time in one’s life when one must ask one’s self what type of cyclist one wants to be. Hammering the pedals on a flashy carbon bike is all well and good, but there is perhaps no pure joy greater than enjoying a leisurely ride in the sun on a bike as comfortable and stable as the Passoni Nova. Handmade from high quality, lightweight steel, the Nova will be a perfect reminder of the sort of bliss you felt from riding as a child.

That’s not to say this is a kiddies bike. Far from it. The Nova offers a stiffness level that will be a fair match for the burliest sprinters. It’s not all about that though. This is a bike that is meant for the riders who can appreciate the level of craftsmanship that a bike like the Nova will offer. The attention to detail is always something that Passoni does very well, and the Nova is no different. Made from Columbus Spirit HSS triple butted steel tubing, that will guarantee the smooth ride that we all love in a steel frame. It’s the 44mm oversized down tube combined with the tapered head tube that will help amp up that rigidity level, so you can take it into a race situation and know that it will be more than a match for your power output. And the CNC’d stainless steel 316 bottom bracket with BSA treading will make sure that it is doing its bit in the power transfer department. The Passoni engraved logo will then give you a warm fuzzy when admiring it since it is one of those little intangibles that makes having a high quality steel frame so special.

Passoni doesn’t do things by halves, so they have made the dropouts from a shell-shaped 316 stainless steel as well for durability and longevity, while the CNC machined aluminum replaceable hanger will make your life easier if you are ever traveling with your bike, and want to remove that piece so that a baggage handler doesn’t snap it off. Using the Columbus FEL fork customized for Passoni will help the handling remain stable and predictable while absorbing the road chatter before it reaches your hands. And then this is a bike that just looks very slick, with the expert detailing and graphics complementing the painted Passoni grey with a dash of neon orange.

Available in five stock sizes, the Passoni Nova also offers the option of paying a bit more and getting a coordinated kit that includes a matching stem, handlebars and bottle cages. This is a bike that perfectly mixes looking good and feeling good so that you will love to take it out equally on long hauls and short jaunts.
