From the picture on Downtubes site the Nova has a schrader valve.

The part you have is a presta to schrader adapter.

Are you sure an adaptor is required?

You need an adapter only if your pump does not match your valve.

What pump do you plan to use? If you don't have yet a pump, get one that fits your valve.

Here are the most common valve types:
