These wheels are sweet! Great rolling action. Strong , light and great looking ! Love the Hope hubs and the Stan's hoops!
I am delighted with the Hope Hoop back wheel. Well built & looks really classy. I am running it tubeless & to date I have had no problems. Service from merlin was good.
These wheels fit the bill... spin super fast and smooth! I went with the XC Tech even know I am heavy 235lb. They are stiff in the corners and transfer well in climbs. Simply cannot find a better wheel at this price point period! Buy them if you`re on a budget, i plan on another set for my 650B!
Wheels are very light yet wide and easy to mount tires and go tubeless. I have used Stan's rims on Hope hubs for years with no problems at all
Excellent wheel build and excellent price from MerlinCycles. This is our second set of Hope Hoops from Merlin. Shipping to the United States was no problem. We are looking forward to using this wheelset on a Trek CrossRip for the Dirty Kanza.
Love the engagement of the Hope hub. Love the stiffness and extra width of the rim. Couldn't be happier.
These are excellent wheels, we now have three pairs. They are light, tough and work extremely well tubeless.
Bought as a wheelset, strong, light and look great. The Pro 2 makes a lovely noise!
Fantastic Wheel - this wheel is exceptionally strong - I weigh about 225 pounds and it has no problem staying true even down technical rocky terrain. Fairly light as well.
Best wheels I've ever owned!
Lightweight and stiff Great Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs!!
To run tubeless remove the Hope green tape and replace with Stan's yellow tape and sealant.
Real fast shipping!!
Great wheels, easily adaptable to any axle size, freewheel is a little loud for some, but nothing that some lightweight oil doesn't cure
What a sweet sound this hub makes going downhill at speed, worth buying just for the noise. Went with the Arch ex rim as I am no lightweight and tend to be aggressive on wheels.Has had a bit of a caning so far and still true and rides well. Happy days.
So sweet! This wheel makes me want more just like it!
Great hub engagement, axle versatility, easy tubeless conversion and not too heavy! What more can one ask for? Oh yeah, amazing price too!!! And great service too! Is this really possible? Love Merlin.
These have got to be the best rims I've ever had! Super strong, light, and the Hope Hubs are amazing. If you're looking for reliability, low maintenance, and a solid wheelset, this is all you need for any kind of trail. Whether cross country or downhill, these will stand up to anything.
