While Hope’s Hoops are cheaper than some of their competitors, they don't have QR skewers. We added skewers to make weight comparisons with other wheelsets. The new Pro 2 hubs now have the longer life stainless steel bearings of Pro 3s, with ﬁve in the cassette hub for maximum durability.
Hub bodies are machined from solid billet, new axles can take Maxle axles but you still get a distinctively loud love/hate freewheel. 32 double-butted spokes and a tight build combine with the low weight of Stan’s No Tubes for a superb ride feel.
