Haan Wheels are well known amongst Dakar competitors for building wheels which are strong and light. Wheels that can take some punishment and are thus perfect for a proper ADV bike! Haan's philosophy is simple: build the best wheels available! A philosophy which fits perfectly with Nomad-ADV as we only sell quality items.
Haan's history goes back 45 years and the original founder of the company still works at the factory. There are quite a few complete wheels in the standard lineup, which can be found under the My Motorcycle section. Outside these we can basically have any wheel build for any bike on the market... yes you read it correctly any bike on the market. Whether it's a 50's BSA, a 70's Maico or the newest Honda Africa Twin or anything in between. Stock levels of over 8,000 rims and 300,000 set sof spokes mean we can deliver quickly too. Haan wheels are lighter and stronger than OEM, and the lower the unsprung weight, the better the suspension is able to cope with rough terrain.
Tube or tubeless
Haan Wheels are derived from Dakar type rally wheels, the strongest wheels available, which automatically means they are all tube type rims. Bluntly put a tubeless rim is not strong enough. Tubeless rims with the spokes on the outside, makes for a very wide rim which easily damages, while using o-ring sealed nipples requires clearance between rim and nipple for the o-rings, which makes for a weak rim (not to mention 40 o-rings which all have to seal properly in a flexing rim).
Having been around the world ourselves we know all too well that when a tubeless tyre gets a puncture in off-road conditions, a bung is most of the time not going to do it. You have in fact a better chance with a spray-can type sealer in a tube (which won’t make a mess of your rim as they are inside the tube). That’s why a lot of prepared riders with tubeless tyres still have a spare tube with them. Better still have one fitted from the start and you can simply swap the tube and fix the other one when convenient.
