Hope RS4 Centre Lock Hubs | Versatile and Quieter!

The Hope RS4 Centre Lock is the new (autumn 2016) hub we’ve been waiting for. Hope have listened to rider and dealer feedback and the RS4 is now quieter than the previous generations by swapping to a 2 pawl ratchet with 44 teeth and 8.2 degree engagement. Your Shimano IceTech rotors will fit straight on now with the introductions of centre lock brake rotor mounts. Being from Hope, the usual vast array of end caps all fit allowing this hub to specced QR, 12 or 15 Thru bolt up front and QR or 10 or 12 Thru bolt on the rear with a choice of Shimano / SRAM 10-11 speed, Campagnolo or X1 drivers. 6 colours to choose from of course.


Strada says:

Hugely versatile for road disc riders, adventure bikes and cyclocross, Hope RS4 centre lock hubs can be specified with Shimano 10 or 11, Campagnolo or SRAM X1 freehubs and a full selection of end caps for maximum versatility.  Good for daily riding as they are well sealed and every bike shop mechanic should know how to service one and have access to rebuild kits. Can be supplied with matching steel shank quick releases. A good alternative is the equally versatile DT Swiss 350 hub.
