Hope Carbon Brake Levers review£60.00

Less weight and more comfort than their alloy counterparts

BikeRadar score4/5

We've been riding the new Hope Mono Mini disc brakes for a few months now and have nothing but good things to say about the slimline new version of this classic hydraulic disc brake. Hope understand that there's no place for standing around gloating about how good your existing stuff might be.

Even great products like their previous Mono Mini brakes need constant development to remain at the forefront of current design and performance, so they've been busy whittling lumps of carbon fibre into beautiful brake lever shapes. The result is a pair of levers that weigh less and have an even more comfortable blade profile than the existing alloy ones. Ideal for anyone on a strict bike diet or with a serious carbon problem.

Sadly these retro brake levers are not retrofittable to previous Mono Mini (black master cylinder) models.
