YOUR TRUSTY COMPANION ON GRAVEL

Our NS Host wheelset is made to ride away, escape reality, go further and explore the unknown. It's been designed for the nomads, the communities that ride the outskirts, the unpaved tracks leading to the remote, and for the ones seeking that day-to-day disconnect.

Much more than just the intersection between Road and MTB cycling, gravel sits at the core of adventure cycling and epitomises the DIY ethos like very few sports can. Gravel brings together riders that share a passion for the outdoors, and encapsulates like no other the simplicity and responsibility that comes with navigating uncharted paths -and leaving them untouched as we pedal through these rough and loose terrains.

This set is there in foggy, muddy, rutted sections. The challenging climbs and the decents off the ranges. Primarily to be ridden on dirt, keeping you firm when its hours on the saddle.

Good riding gear follows the maxims of reliability, simplicity, light but tough -which are at the forefront of the NS Host design work, bringing that extra traction point, stability and control, and the 'you can forget about your equipment' type of confidence.
