HOPE PRO 2 EVO 650B wheels

These were sent to me for my GT Sanction 26 to 650b conversion project, they did the trick for that and are still going strong 2 months later. These, built with the more xc type narrow Stan’s rim are a great lightweight solidly built wheel. They certainly retain the usual trick look of Hope merchandise, I have hammered them at some of our local rooty, rocky trails and various “tough on wheels” type races since then, and they are still as straight as James Bond’s labido! The hubs come made with stainless steel bearings, laced to Sapim race spokes and Stans Arch rims with the option of J-pull or S-pull for extra strength. Different axle lengths and thicknesses are all sorted by the use of different width and internal diameter cups, plus the hubs come in a variety of cool colours.

Prices- Front £125.00 Rear £215.00
