Hope Tech 3 E4 Disc Brake - Colours
Hope Tech 3 E4 Disc Brake - Colours
Hope have kept the key features of the Tech Evo master cylinder and worked to improve the ergonomics and integration on the handlebars. The Tech 3 master cylinder can operate all the calipers from our range and offers a slight increase of power of about 5% over the Tech Evo.
Popular design features of Tech Evo remain the same, such as the reach and bite point control (BPC)adjustability. The piston is actuated by a cam and a roller system to eliminate any free play and initial friction. The classic split clamp design makes the master cylinder easy to install on the handlebars without having to remove anything else.
Hope Tech 3 - Some riders have previously commented on the relative bulkiness of the Tech and Tech Evo master cylinders, sometimes making it hard to fit the master cylinder around already clogged up handlebars (shifters, fork and shock lockouts, telescopic seat post controls etc). Hope have worked hard to make the new Tech 3 master cylinder easier to integrate on the bars although it does entail losing the ambidextrous design.
The Tech 3 master cylinder is now directly compatible with any Shimano I-Spec type shifter meaning no extra mount is required to attach the shifter to the master cylinder. For those using SRAM shifters we have designed a slick and minimalistic direct mount adaptor.
- The one piece caliper is CNC machined from a solid billet of 2014 T6 aircraft spec aluminium alloy.
- The E4 caliper uses four identical 16mm phenolic pistons which gives more usable power to the brake,
- whilst keeping our ledgendary "feel".
- 'On the fly' BPC (bite point control) and Reach adjustment
- Direct compatibility with Shimano I-Spec shifter
- Direct mount available for SRAM shifters
- 5% power increase over TECH Evo master cylinder

Glenn Blake Hope Tech 3 brakes are a favourite of mine. I purchased these for a new bike build as a rear brake. Excellent machining, finish and performance. Stacks of power and best-in-class modulation.
Joey Best brakes I've ever used.
Luke Best brakes available. Good performance and reliable + bling factor
Churchill Work of art! Stop on a dime and great feathering. Also, very fast shipping to the states. Best price available!
Marcelo Second set of these brakes both bought from Merlin. Amazing stopping power and by far the best value I could find. I highly recommend Hope products they look awesome and also work extremely well. I will continue to purchase from Merlin as they offer great product range at very competitive pricing. Kind regards from OZ
Mr Watson I was very happy to find the Hope brakes from Merlin. The brakes work great and were a breeze to install. I like the weight vs stopping power ratio. Hope did a great job keeping the weight down while fitting 4 pistons into each caliper. The E4's are awesome and I am running them with 180mm rotors front and rear. It stops on a dime and with the great design of the caliper and large rotors, heat build-up is not a concern. I would highly recommend purchasing these Enduro style breaks from Merlin Cycles!
Mr Daniels Hands down the best brakes I`ve ever owned.
Mark These brakes feel incredible! I love the fact that they come in colors, are super adjustable, easy to shorten cables and easy to bleed. Having a machinist's background, I also love how they are made. So far, highly recommend these brakes!
Mr Dobson The best brakes I have ever used
TB Great stoppers, plenty of power for with excellent modulation. Well made and very solid feeling despite a competitive weight.
Mr Bolger Haha. Now then as brakes these are absolutely amazing the stopping power is second to none the levers feel so much stronger and more comfortable than my shimano. Only advise I would give is make sure you look into everything first and make sure you know what you need to buy and try combating any problems you may have early.
Mr Hesselberth There's just no comparison. Great feel, loads of power and last forever
Dick Tator Wowsers! These are the best brakes you never knew you needed.
BMX Bandit HOLY MODULATION BATMAN! These brakes are some of the best feeling lever actuation I have ever experienced. Bling factor is superb. Hope makes a quality product but the fact that you are here looking I am sure that goes without saying. Bite the bullet and PONY UP! You WONT be disappointed!
Skyboy Look amazing in orange, usual Hope quality. Love the look but more importantly the feel and modulation. Had the Mini's, M4,V2 and now the E4's and they have got more refined and powerful with each development. They come with the added bonus of been able to bleed the brake without the need for syringes etc. Had many other brakes but always go back to Hope.
