Product Description

From the World Cup Downhill circuit to the extreme cliffs of the Red Bull Rampage, Hope’s downhill wheels prove their reliability time and again, making for a dependable wheel for a reasonable price.

British developed and built, Hope Hubs are made to take on the rigors of UK riding, with all the slop and wet grit that makes it so special. The new Pro 4 hubs are built in-house at Hope from a forged 2014 T6 aluminium billet and feature larger spoke flanges for stiffer wheels and stainless steel bearings for smooth and dependable rolling.

Hope Tech DH rims are tough, made to take a beating. The 6061 T6 aluminium, triple cavity design is the same as the Enduro rim, however, thicker wall sections give superior strength. They are also wider, with a 28mm internal width, which allows for greater traction. Adding strength, the rims are welded and the spoke holes are eyeleted to deal with excess stress.

This 27.5” front wheel comes in a 110x20mm configuration (non-Boost). Other adaptors for 15mm and QR are available separately.

  • DH rim designed and tested by Hope

    MTB Wheels Guide

    How do I choose an MTB wheel?

    There are many different sizes of MTB wheels and it is important to get the right one to fit your bike. There are five things that you need to consider when choosing a new wheel; wheel diameter, axle type, hub spacing, rim width and freehub type (rear wheel only).

    What are the different wheel diameters (sizes)?

    MTB wheels are available in 4 different diameters:

    • 29” - cross country (XC) and trail bikes
    • 650b (27.5”) – Most common size, XC, trail and downhill bikes
    • 26” – the traditional wheel size, but is now less common
    • 24” – only found on certain jump and junior bikes

    What are the different axle types?

    There are different axle types for front and rear wheels:

    • QR (9mm) – quick release skewer – for front and rear wheels
    • 10mm – thru axle - for rear wheels
    • 12mm – thru axle – for rear wheels
    • 15mm – thru axle – for front wheels
    • 20mm – thru axle – for front wheels

    What about hub spacing?

    As with axle types there are specific hub spacing’s for front and rear wheels:

    • 100mm - front, traditional size
    • 110mm – front, Boost standard
    • 135mm – rear, traditional size
    • 142mm – rear, most common
    • 148mm – rear, Boost standard
    • 150mm – rear, Downhill bikes

    Why does rim width matter?

    Yes. This is because weight on the rim adversely affects acceleration and climbing more than weight on any other part of the bike. Having said that a wider (and heavier) rim is more robust and will offer more support for the tyre. For this reason, cross country MTBs tend to have narrower rims than trail and downhill bikes. As long as you get the wheel diameter, axle type and hub spacing to match your existing wheel it is usually possible to change the rim width for either a lighter or a sturdier wheel.

    What about Plus sizes?

    Plus sized 27.5” & 29” wheels use very wide rims (38-50mm) that require Boost standard hub spacing. You can only use these rims on ‘Plus Sized’ bikes.

    What are the different freehub options?

    The freehub is the part of the rear wheel that the cassette fixes on to. There are 3 main freehub types that fit specific cassettes:

    • Shimano and SRAM– fits Shimano and SRAM 8, 9 & 10 speed cassettes
    • SRAM XD – fits SRAM 11 & 12 speed cassettes
    • Hope – fits hope 11 speed cassettes

    If you match the above criteria, then you can be sure that the wheel you buy will be compatible with your mountain bike.

    Do I need a disc specific wheel?

    If you have disc brakes on your bike then you will need a disc specific wheel. There are two different types of disc rotors that are compatible with different hubs:

    • 6 bolt – most common type
    • Centre lock – used on certain Shimano hubs

    Note – disc specific wheels are not compatible with rim brakes.

    What about tubeless?

    Some wheels are ready to be used with tubeless tyres straight out of the box while others can be converted with a simple conversion kit. This will usually be specified in the product description.

    Wheels are either sold individually or in pairs known as wheelsets. Check the product description for more details.
