Hope’s Hoops wheels offer a great range of custom options and unbeatable value – you’re not paying extra for the normally super-expensive £90 Stan’s Flow rims compared with the other Mavic or DT options Hope offer.
Their low weight and high strength makes them a benchmark for tough all-round use too. The acceleration of these wheels can be clearly felt, but they don’t feel fragile on descents. They’re also a cinch to use tubeless with Stan’s rim strips and the hubs are convertible to all axle standards.
The straight-pull spoke version of Hope’s well-sealed and reliable Pro 2 hubs are tighter and fancier than conventional J-bend spoke (£295) versions too. The top value also includes fantastic long-term backup direct from Hope’s Lancashire factory.
