Hoe release the new Pro 5 hubs with improved engagement and less drag

UK-based company Hope has released its latest hubset, the Pro 5, which will succeed the popular Pro 4 hubs and build on their strengths, providing the right blend of pick-up speed, load capacity, durability and drag. 

Hope, based in Barnoldswick, England, has been making high-quality bicycle components and parts for decades, but it really drew attention on the world stage with its involvement in the radical Hope HB.T track bike, in collaboration with Lotus, for Team GB athletes prior to the Tokyo Olympics. 

Its hubs are favoured by riders across various disciplines for their quality construction and long, service-free performance, as well as their various distinctive anodised colours.

Hope says both will reduce drag while increasing durability and load capacity compared to the Pro 4.
