  • Carbon Clincher rim, tubeless compatible
  • Designed to suit disc brake sets using 6 bolt rotors
  • The RS4 rear hubs feature the reduced drag ratchet mechanism
  • Rear wheel supplied with 135 QR and 142x12mm conversion kits
Richard Oldfield Ordered both front & rear separately to take advantage of Merlin Rewards points from previous purchases. Hope website states 1495g for the centre lock pair, these were 1575g for the pair. Only came with through axle adaptors. I fitted Stans 21mm yellow tape & 55mm valves to run tubeless. Fitted Schwalbe Pro One 30mm tyres that came up at 31mm. The tyres went on without tyre levers, inflated first time with a track pump & held pressure for days without sealent. Was happy to pay a little extra & for a little extra weight over other alternatives for Hope quality. The wheels spin forever in the workstand & the freehub has very little drag, & is very quiet unlike Hope MTB hubs.
