Hope Pro2 EVO Hubs
Hope’s Pro II hubs have been around for quite a few years now and they’ve built a very solid reputation for themselves; the new EVO version takes things one step further with a stronger axle to better integrate with some of the thru-axle standards on the market. All bearings are now stainless steel (two in the front, five in the rear), and the rear hub keeps its reliable and easily serviceable four pawl, 24 tooth ratchet. Both front and rear hubs are available to suit any axle combination you choose, and they can be quickly adapted to other systems by simply swapping the end caps (sold separately). There are six rather fetching anodised colours to choose from and the actual weights of our samples are quite reasonable at 182g for a 15mm front and 313g for a QR rear. It’s nice to have these quality UK-made hubs available in Australia and the front and rear hubs sell for $135 and $325 respectively.
