The final edition of one of the most iconic mountain bike events of all time, the @transprovence, is well underway. @jamienicolladventures is racing the event on his @santacruzbicycles Megatower fully built with Hope components. Reliability in these events is key. He’s currently sitting in 10th overall, we’re keen to see how the week progresses.
On the day of the Hope Pre Peaks 2019 riders have the option of setting anytime between 7.30am and 9am. We do do advise riders to set off as early as possible...

www.hopetech.com - A place for sharing all things hope related, with a heads up on the new and exciting things going on in the factory and in the world of hope!
We make the majority of our components ourselves in Barnoldswick, Lancashire. These are available in 6 colours and found in our stockists all over the country and beyond.
HOPE, as a company has now worked at the leading edge of engineering technology since 1989. We employ 120 people (several of whom started out at the beginning and a huge 90% who live within 2 miles of the factory) to run over 60 CNC machines, 24 hours a day. The whole range of components are produced in house. The design team use their extensive knowledge and skills on the latest computer aided design software to create drawings, 3D printed models and prototypes that are then turned into the finished parts.

Hope has been pushing into new territory over the past few years, experimenting with new materials and new products. Not only have they got their heads around carbon manufacturing, but also they've made entire bikes from it, and all this designed, tested and manufactured in Barnoldswick, UK. As well as bike creation, they've been busy making their carbon handlebars, which…
When it comes to high-powered brakes, Hope has to be in the mix. Having been involved in disc brakes since the very beginning, they obviously know their stuff, proven by the legions of fans that will have nothing else on their bike. Looking like they've come straight from a lump of metal (because they have), the E4s represent Hopes top…
Purveyors of fine quality British engineering, Hope have been at the forefront of component manufacturing for what seems like forever. Having developed an almost legendary reputation in the bike industry, they represent durability and reliability to the core, alongside an 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' mentality towards product development. For many years now the Pro II hubs have…
The F20 has been around for a while now, in a typical Hope 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' style. True to form these pedals are CNC machined out of a good solid lump of aluminium giving a ridged finish with a slightly concave shape to the body. The pedals run on three cartridge bearings and one bush all…
Hope needs no , renowned for high-quality engineering and manufacture; they have been making lights alongside all their other products for many years. The R4+ represents the latest version of their 2000 lumen (1500 measured) light. The light unit is a beautifully machined piece, with 4 Cree LEDs held within a solid and fantastically detailed case, with etched logos, plenty…
Hope launched the R1 as a smaller sibling to the very popular R4 light, which we tested last year. The R4 boast an impressive 1000 lumen output and the R1 comes in at 500 lumens with a 2 cell instead of a 4-cell battery. It’s smaller and lighter than the R4, and comes with bar, helmet and a head mount…
The R4 from Hope has been around for a year or so now, and has had plenty of time to prove itself in the field and out on the trails. There are, as ever, many happy customers and, as fans of the previous incarnation, we were keen to see how the Vision R4 performed. First up, it is tiny in…
Weight: 987g Front 1114g Rear Wheels take a battering at these kinds of events; a solid week of blasting downhill over tough and rocky conditions means plenty of wear and tear. The Hopes appealed for a few reasons, low maintenance and durability being the main ones. We opted for the standard Pro 2 Hub built onto Mavic 721 rims; these…
Weight: 279 Grams (caliper, lever and standard hose front brake) The Tech M4 has been around for a little while and it has plenty of time in the field. Initial doubts about the fragility of the lever have proved unfounded and as usual the brakes are living up to the usual Hope standards of quality. Out of the box there…
Weight: 615g (full brake with 180mm rotor, braided hose and all bolts and fittings) The new Tech V2 is the strongest and most powerful brake Hope have in their line up at the moment. While it might not be the lightest bit of aluminium on the market, it is certainly one of the beefiest. We opted for the braided hose…
One thing you know you will get with a Hope product is quality, and with the Vision series of lights that is ever present; neatly packaged and beautifully machined the Hope Vision 4 really is one of the daddies in the lighting business. This light has 4 stationary beam settings and an additional flash setting. The static settings: low, medium,…

Ewen Turner catches up with Sam Flanagan of Trippin' fame and talks about the crazy biking adventures the team are famous for. Rock climbing with bikes, inflatable rafts and general craziness are all in a days work for the globe trotting, film making team.
A World Championship smashing enduro bike from Nukeproof, a rowdy hardtail from Commencal and a couple of funky gravel bikes make the line up of test machines this month. Slowing things down hard and fast is the name of the game as we put some four-pot brakes through the mill and see if they can offer the killer power they all claim.
IMB turns 50! Rou Chater looks back at where we have come from and what we’ve achieved!
From a hillside in Wales has emerged a monster. Created from the warped mind of Dan Atherton, Hardline is the toughest downhill course in the world. We catch up with Adam Brayton and Craig Evans and try to understand what it takes to survive the track.
Adam Brayton AKA Mr Gas to Flat; is a rider and racer of the highest calibre, but 2016 saw him crank it up a notch. Ewen Turner finds out how he did it, and discovers his overall fitness played a huge role!
This issue we get seasonally adjusted with some lights to keep you riding through the long nights, and check out a great range of bikes from Merida, Commencal, Cube and Forme.
Full suspension trail and Enduro bikes from Polygon, KTM, Scott and NS are put through their paces, alongside a classic steel hardtail from Onza. The new pro 4 wheelset from Hope is put through the mill and we find out if Manitou's Mattoc forks can compete with the big boys.
Roo Fowler goes on a night ride, but not in the frigid airs of the UK, rather he is escaping the sun in Alice Springs, Australia. After his tales Rou Chater steps in to look at great winter light set ups!
We've got some 29ers on test, possibly the best full suspension bike we have ever tested for someone on a budget and we take a look at 1x10 set-ups.
