Hope now offers the Pro 4 DH hub, based on the Pro 4. Like the Pro 4 the DH offers bigger flanges to follow the trend to bigger wheels. Many DH riders use short 7 speed cassettes. Hope saw a potentially missed opportunity to improve the strength of rear wheels. The drive-side spoke flange is moved out to the shortened cassettes, allowing a far wider flange spacing over a standard hub, leading to a stiffer wheel build.
The new rear hub also gets an bigger ratchet mechanism with now 44 teeth for 10% faster engagement over the Pro 2 Evo.
Compatible with all brake discs with ISO 6 hole design. The hub will accept custom 7 speed cassette built up from individual sprockets, a SRAM 7 speed DH cassette or Hopes 7-speed cassette. Adapter kits allow the hub to be converted to 142 mm.
The Hope Tech DH rim features an optimized design for enduro and DH. This is achieved by use of high-quality 6061 T6 alloy, a welded seam and eyelets. Same profile as the Enduro rim, but with an internal width of 28 mm and thicker sidewalls for added strength. You can see that internally there are three sections to provide more stiffness and if you look really closely, you can see that at the bottom the rim is thicker than on the side, to prevent the rim deforming under tension from the spokes. Tubeless kits (not included in delivery) allow the use of tubeless tires.
Hope Hoops wheels are handmade for constant quality and reliability.
Important note: Hope freehub bodies are only compatible to Hope cassettes. For using Shimano or SRAM (XD) cassettes you need to select the corresponding option.
