Leaps and bounds better than my previous rear wheel. I put tubeless rim tape on and am running tubeless succesfully.
Bought a front and rear set of the XC 29" wheels for my gravel bike. The rear with 142x12 axle fittings was good to go out the box (despite what it says in Merlin's description blurb, the indications in the product selector are correct - rear wheels come with both QR and 142x12 fittings in the box) I had to add a conversion kit (https://www.merlincycles.com/hope-pro-2-evo-pro-4-front-hub-axle-conversion-kits-45112.html) to get the front on to my 12mm bolt through axle. Swapping over the caps needed some careful tugging with pliers but it's not difficult and fits perfectly. Then I wrapped the rim tape, transferred over my old discs, added tubes and tyres and good to go. Also, because it doesn't say anywhere on the description - yes, the picture is correct these are for 6-bolt discs not Centre Lock. All Pro4 hubs are 6-bolt, only the roadie RS4 hub has a Centre Lock option In the box I got two spare spokes for each wheel, a roll of cloth rim tape and some Hope stickers. The wheels are excellent - super tough build quality, light enough and the rims aren't crazily wide which makes them suitable for the ~40mm tyres on gravel bikes. Also you get the Hope loud hub ratchet click which is better than any bell.
These wheels are fantastic. They are light, tough and really good value for money.
Amazing hubs and great wheel set. I've got 10 years from 2 sets of pro2 hubs, hoping for something similar here. There should be more clarity of which hub adapters are included with each wheel. I ended up spending unnecessary dollars on items that were included in the box.
Five stars. Another great product from Hope. Will last a lifetime, with a little care and maintenance. Lovely positive click from the freewheel hub. Not a hint of delay in engagement when you turn the pedals.
Bought a pair of these front and rear. Wheels are great, looking good, durable, fast rolling and great good sound! Recommend you to pick these wheels.
Well built, light and rolls well. Easy to set up tubeless. Recommended
Very satisfied with these wheels they have handled all the terrain that I have been over since buying them
Hopes build quality is incredible and at this price point there's nothing that comes close. They're easy to setup tubeless and the rim locks the bead of the tire in super tight so running low pressure is no problem. So far I've got just over 100 miles and 10 hours of riding time and couldn't be happier with my wheel choice. These wheels also come with spare spokes, and nipples to make future repairs painless.

Good combination of weight and stiffness. Supposedly they are strong with 32 spokes each. Nice looks and pawl sound come as bonus. Each wheel comes with two spare spokes. two spare nipples, and one Velox cloth rim tape. They come as QR, but each comes with adapters (15mm front and 142mm rear). Rear wheel also comes with a cassette spacer.
Excellent value and performance. Hubs a bit heavy especially rear design with full flanges but very pleased with flexibility with ease of conversion. Merlin are the benchmark for customer service. My preferred supplier now. Dispatch within 24hrs not 2weeks like other stores. Always respond to email. Best value!
Usual Hope quality. I am sure there are better lighter wheelsets out there but these suited my needs. They also came with the required adapters for 15 upfront and 12x142 at rear.
