Affordable, British built carbon clinchers with some minor issues
Skip to view product specifications

We’ve always liked Hope hubs for their durability and easy servicing. Dymag’s full carbon clinchers are built on Hope’s latest RS Monos, with a spectacularly loud freehub.

Spoke tensions weren’t especially even, but standard J-bend spokes and sensible external brass nipples mean repairs are cheap and straightforward, and the hubs can be re-used when the rims wear out. The rather old-school rim section is quick enough in a straight line but twitchy in crosswinds. Braking is grabby, but we didn’t have Dymag’s recommended pads, so we’ll reserve judgement.
