New Hope shininess

As well as offering Hope Hoops wheelsets with a choice of DT, Mavic or NoTubes rims, there’s also a six-bolt rotor option on the straight-pul Pro3-SP wheels to open up the choice of rotors a bit.

We’ve only just found out that Hope hubs are now machined from forged blanks, with all the grain alignment (and reduced waste) benefits that that brings. Apparently this has been happening for months, but in typical Hope style they didn’t really mention it at the time.

The long-awaited Hope seatpost is in its nth incarnation, now with a forged head and apparently ready for production and on sale soon. The coppery brown anodising is a potential limited-edition choice for all Hope parts.

With most DH forks now sporting the necessary holes for direct-mount stems, Hope has come up with its own offering complete with an interlocking faceplate design that does away with two bolts.
