Optimus Nova


The legendary OPTIMUS NOVA is the benchmark for today’s multifuel expedition stoves. This award winning workhorse has cooked millions of meals in the wilderness, and has become a favorite among serious backpackers. Why? A patented quick-priming burner, the self-purging aluminium pump and a built in magnetic cleaning needle are all features that ensure reliability and ease of use in all conditions. The single jet multifuel technology provides versatility throughout the world. Thanks to the collapsible turbine shaped pot support, a folding flame control and a new stuff bag, pack size is minimal. Despite the small format, OPTIMUS NOVA offers stability for large sized pots. So go out and get cooking!
