Hope Pro 4 Adam Braton RAW

It's been three years since Adam Brayton took us on a wild ride down the World Cup track in Schladming with that RAW edit. Hope Technology recently launched its new Pro 4 (which replaces the infamous Pro 2 Evo) - what better way to do some last minute product testing than to send Adam Brayton to session the 11km Pila DH track.

 It wasn’t a good advertisement. It clearly showed those brakes couldn’t stop Brayton for the whole descent causing him to ride dangerously fast. Hope guys, haven’t you heard about safety regulations??
PS. I couldn’t produce a ‘raw’ edit with my Avids, cause they always accompany me with squeaky noises called ‘song of my people’.

 @Borro, seriously?? Are you joking or just incredibly naive?
  • + 88
 @dadebrown, I'm confused. Are you sure they might have done it the 'right way'? Definitely we should wait for official statement of Hope Company in this matter.

 This video had way too much slow motion. Said no one!
  • + 25
 Why will you want to stop when there's lots of Bees right behind you! I Hope he made its own without getting sting.
  • + 20
 This is the best soundtrack for a video. Hope everyone loves it.
  • + 3
 Wasn't Chris King hubs the original bee noise makers? If not who made the first noisy bee filled hubs
  • + 5
 I think Ringle was the OG noticeably loud hub. You have to go back to the mid 90s or so. They were the first one I remember at least.
  • + 1
 I've still got a sun ringle loud hub bearings lasted 7 years free hub still going strong.
  • + 14
 Not only did the the brakes hardly get squeezed but I think for a split second he took advantage of Hope's drive engagement system with a single pedal stroke. This video is full of classic irony and great riding.

 Comment of the year 2016 ... 6 days in. Haha, thanks for the laugh brah

 Raw is just another way of saying "we didn't feel like adding a son that fit well so we just smashed some clips together"
  • + 3
 Did you even watch the video? Or are you joking?
  • + 2
 the guy that brought RAW to the humanity
  • + 206
 Wait...how did he get his goggles on if we didn’t see it?

Blisteringly fast btw.
  • + 65
 I wonder what he had for breakfast..
  • + 21
 Definitely not what i had.. ;'-(((((((
  • + 76
 maybe fast food ?
  • + 32
 And how did he make his coffee that morning?
  • + 24
 Yeah but I've got to know how he loads his bike up!
  • + 1
 @Ozlsak easy: just put in some Redbull instead of water. Try it.
  • + 31
 I didn't see him ride out of his garage. He must have found the bike on the trail.
  • + 11
 Also what time did he stop his alarm clock and get out of bed?
  • + 2
 @Reichertshausner But I need to see it!
  • + 77
 Probably the best video I've seen so far, since the start of 2016.
  • + 46
 Bravo Hope, bravo. If that was in 3D it would be better than the new Star Wars.
  • + 39
 That bike does the kessel run in under 10 parsecs
  • + 44
 Hope sure are making a lot of noise about their Pro4 hubs!
  • + 33
 "click" bait for sure.
  • + 8
 Probably just to keep things ticking over
  • + 12
 an apawling display
  • + 10
 It's just marketing buzz
  • + 6
 Hope has nothing to say, must be otherwise engaged... ratcheting up interest in other ways.
  • + 22
 Marketing done correctly
  • + 15
 If there is any way this video could be removed, that would be great. It's offensive and makes me feel terrible about my riding. :-/
  • + 9
 Hallelujah, finally video i Hope'd for, without any getting up, drinking coffee, sloooow minded alias slo-mo shots and unnecessary music. I would buy new Pro 4 hubs just for that video alone, even if i don't need them. Rider skill and flow is amazing. Lets keep the Hope's up for more quality videos like that!

 The first word joke with Hope in it was funny. But in this section it is used like 20 times. Even you used it 2 times in one comment.

Except from that: my thoughts
  • + 10
 I'm stoked already, even though the video is still password protected! Brayton is a don
  • + 3
 Not The Don though that titles been taken.

 Pretty nice racing lines. That's the Stig on a bike if I ever saw one!

 Banshee Legend seems perfect for Brayton?

One of the toughest DH frames that won't simply implode when Brayton hits warp speed Wink

 I've just realised why Brayton doesn't do that well in races, he keeps pushing back up to destroy all the corners. Sick vid, Love Pila as well, by far one of the best places I've ridden
  • + 7
 I think he only used his brakes once in the whole video!
  • + 6
 I think that guy is a danger to the forest and the trees traveling at such speed
  • + 1
 Possibly, yet still the trees are a bit ahead in terms of 1-on-1 battle. At least that's what the #8 video in "Fails of the month" says. And my broken hand.
  • + 5
 How is the pro 2 evo 'infamous'!?!?!? Or does someone not know the meaning of the word?
  • + 0
 I think its because alot of people don't like how loud the hub is (including me, and my bike has one!), but plenty of people like it
  • - 1
 well known for some bad quality or dastardly deed. I love the sound personally.
  • + 7
 It seems to be a love/hate thing, loads of people on PB love it but I like to think a quiet bike is a fast bike.

It definitely wouldn't stop me getting another Hope hub though!
  • + 13
 Yes! The noise is to remind you that you stopped peddling and could be going faster. Dude couldn't go any faster in video because of sonic boom regulations in the area. - I like the noise polite way of telling someone I'm behind them... and bears!
  • + 3
 Exactly!, ive lost count on how many times, ive come up behind someone and about 30' behind them, they start looking around wondering "whats that noise"?!.
  • + 2
 That is an MTB edit...........stunning riding, trails, and you cannot beat the sound of a hope hub flying down a mountain. hope kit is amazing, couple of sets of wheels with pro 2 evos and they are bullet proof winter after winter of wet welsh mud and grit and they are faultless. really need pro 4's in my life after watching this. LOVE IT
  • + 2
 wait, why does he ride his discs with only 4 bolts instead of 6? You can't tell me that these 2 grams matter on a DH Bike and i don't think that the engineers designed it with 6 bolts because of optical reasons! (look at 1:09)
  • + 3
 Aha! my time to shine!

*ahem*

Engineers and mechanics, especially those that work out on the field with teams and riders, usually skip 2 bolts when fitting brakes.

1: 4 bolts is plenty enough strength for if the bike is doing specific runs
2: it saves a marginal amount of time and effort for the mechanic to remove or replace disks
3:because they live on the edge

sorry for the nerd-out
  • + 2
 That was sick. Would love a raw style video focussing on someones braking into corners, my squid technique of full lock through every corner isn't going to get me anywhere fast anytime soon..
  • + 4
 Makes me want to go and ride now. If only the trails weren't all washed away or under water...
  • + 3
 By far the best DH vid i have ever seen!! No visual tricks or mind-play, just really great riding and camera work. Well done!!
  • + 6
 That video did not suck.

 Rawesome!

 This f*cking crazy mothafu... did it again. Big Grin

 Those pics are incredible.
  • + 3
 Hope he does well this year. Now Hope need to make some clipless pedals to make it a full hope kit for him.
  • + 3
 Metallier must feel offended by his speed.. lets send them to a videobattle i say! May the best survive!!
  • + 3
 Only evidence of braking was the perfect 'clawing' sounds of the knobs. Best soundtrack ever
  • + 2
 Ace video, foot out, flat out, warp speed, no slowmo to be seen anywhere. Quality riding from Mr Brayton. No soundtrack needed with that lovely hub buzzing away.
  • + 5
 We need more raw videos.

 bzzzz, swosh, bzzzz, swosh... gonna turn this into an mp3 and listen it to work to calm me down when I have to deal with stupid coworkers....

 Best video i've seen in a long time.

 Who needs pro 4, just tape a stick to your bike that hits the spokes. In fact its as loud as the hope 5... That dudes killing it though!

 Wow flowy and effortless ride.
  • + 3
 Anyone also noticed he is running with only 4 screws on front rotor. That weight saving in DH getting serious.

 4000ft?!?!
  • + 1
 @ibishreddin yep that's the "rientro" track, from Pila (1800 meters) to Aosta (about 600 meters). The bikepark with lifts is in Pila, and you can reach 2600 meters with the upper lift. It takes about 30 minutes (if you are fast and you don't stop) to reach Aosta from there... It's not on Trailforks yet, I'll add it later
  • + 2
 The title states there are "no special effects or music," but the buzz of that hub is like music to my ear.
  • + 3
 A fully rawesome video for sure!
  • + 1
 I understand foot out drifting but what's the advantage of putting the foot down? Doesn't that unweight the wheels and cause them to slide further away?
  • + 8
 It saves your ass... You still have your outside foot to givr'...
  • + 4
 Braap Braap Moto styles!

 foot down actually lowers your center of gravity on the bike

 @Powderface

leg out = air brake

as used by fast flying aircraft and Adam Brayton Wink

 I'm guessing that brake pads last a looong time on his bike.Loved this vid! The speed and sound of the tires generate way more stoke than the slow-mo over edits.
