Hope Hoops Pro 3 XC6 Disc - Carbon Clincher 45mm Road / Cyclocross Wheel
The Hope Hoops Pro III XC6 Carbon 45 clincher is a high-end cyclocross front wheel offering great stiffness and slick aerodynamics in one package. The focus is on a hand-finished quality build with reliable, serviceable parts.
The unidirectional (UD) carbon fiber layup of the rim provides lateral stiffness and strength above its woven counterpart. Angled drillings on the front rim are used for better spoke alignment, truer building and a longer life. The depth profile of this dual duty rim is ideal for cyclo-cross riders in keeping the nipple area and spokes clear of grass and mud build-up and offering sidewall support, whilst simultaneously offering an aerodynamic advantage for the road users.
In selecting the perfect rim for Hope wheels, the primary concern was exclusively quality. Full carbon rims in the past have faced reportings of crushing with braking force. During development of the carbon wheels Hope uses rims that have been extensively tested under extreme heat and pressure simulating the longest descents.
The wheels use a proven Pro III XC6 SP (straight pull) hub which fits perfectly to the carbon clincher rim. This hub is aimed specifically at the cyclo cross market with a combination of light weight, high functionality and excellent weather sealing. The front hub shell is produced from a single forged billet of 2014 T6 aluminium.
The rear Pro III hub also features an improved version of the proven ratchet mechanism. Now it features a 40 tooth ratchet with 4 pawl engagement, giving a quick, dependable drive. The hub shell is produced from a single forged billet of 2014 T6 aluminium and it uses a 7075 aluminium rotor body. Both are now machined to allow fitting of the new generation of 11 speed cassettes from SRAM and Shimano, but still allow for use of 9 and 10 speed Shimano and SRAM cassettes by means of a removable spacer.
Hope Hoops wheels are handmade for constant quality and reliability.
