It looks like Hope are set to launch its new Tech 4 brakes very soon with biketart.com
suggesting a Spring 2022 release.
Some Hope riders have been running new looking levers for a while but now we have a decent confirmation that Hope will be launching an overhauled braking range with the updated Tech 4. From the product pages on biketart.com, it sounds like the V4, E4 and X2 brakes will receive a claimed 30% increase in power over Hope's current Tech 3 offerings.
The new levers will also feature a light lever action for reduced fatigue and increased feel, reduced friction internal sealing, ball bearing pivot and bite point and reach adjustment without the need for tools. Interesting while the levers will be receiving an update the calipers look to remain the same as the ones used in the current Tech 3 lineup.
In terms of pricing there looks to be a £20 increase for the E4 and X2 brakes with a cost of £195 and £175 respectively for a single brake. The Downhill orientated V4 brakes only see a £10 increase and cost £210 each.
