Hope Pro 4 Hub | UK Manufactured

Hope Pro 4 hubs are versatile, durable and easy to service. The freehub noise is on the loud side and may not be to everyone’s taste. But they are easy to service and with multiple end cap configrations make them popular with riders. Now in Orange too! Made in Barnoldswick, Yorkshire.

Description

The Hope Pro 4 Hub range is a further development and refinement of their proven ratchet mechanism. Four pawls engage into a twenty-four tooth steel ratchet which is fixed into the hub shell and is sealed with a frictionless, non contact labyrinth seal. This hub features a one piece 7075 aluminium rotor body and pawl carrier. The axle runs on four cartridge bearings. The hub shell is machined from a solid billet of 2014 T6 aluminium.

Strada Says:

Hugely versatile, the Hope Pro 4 hub can be specced with Shimano 10 or 11, Campagnolo or SRAM XX1 freehubs with a full selection of end caps for maximum versatility.  The free hub is quite loud and may not be to everyone’s taste. Good for daily riding as they are very well sealed. Every bike shop mechanic should know how to service one and have access to Hope rebuild kits. The Pro 4 Hub can be supplied with matching steel shank quick releases. A good alternative is the equally versatile DT Swiss 350 hub.

Hope Says:

For the Hope Pro 4 hub, we now use a 44 tooth ratchet mechanism which gives a 10% quicker engagement over the Pro 2 EVO. The pro 4 hub, also with the move to larger wheel sizes we’ve increased the flange diameter, adding important stiffness to wheel builds, even with non Boost width hubs. The final change is on the Shimano compatible freehubs which will be supplied ready to take 11sp cassettes.

Hope’s Story

Hope set up business in the late 80’s as subcontractor’s for the local aerospace sector machining tools and fixtures.  It was 1989 when the owners both keen cyclists decided to develop disc brakes for their Mountain bikes.  They decided to employ similar technology that was used in the motorbikes that they both enjoyed riding and although originally intended for personal use they quickly realised they could sell these to the public.

Disc brakes on bicycles was a far out concept at the time so Hope decided to produce other more traditional products to introduce a full range to the market.  This began with a front hub which spread quickly with retailers in the UK and subsequently abroad. The range expanded so quickly and became so popular that in 2000 the company did away with all it’s subcontracting to concentrate solely on its bike parts.

Hope is based Barnoldswick Lancashire. It’s state of art facility runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week employing around 100 people who run the CNC machines, anodising process and the hand finishing of its parts. Hope manages all aspects of its business in house from innovation, manufacture, product testing and delivery, this home grown mentality gives it the edge over its rivals.

Hope’s attention to detail shines through in the quality, robust delivery and its excellent reputation that sees it exporting to over 40 countries worldwide.  Fitted by both keen amateur’s, serious riders and top level pros, Hope products are almost second to none.
