It’s finally here! Possibly the best UK produced bike? We think so, also possibly the finest mid travel 29er full stop. We have ridden it, and our demo is in the shop so you can too. Hand crafted in Barnoldswick with full carbon front end and bonded aluminium rear end, full lifetime warranty and dream list of kit. Geometry is a big departure for Hope, this is a pretty long trail beast. A great point of reference would be a Transition Smuggler (also happens to be one of most popular bikes) with reach on a Large coming in 475/469 depending on how the flip chip is set. 130mm rear travel and 140/150mm up front, this is a really capable platform for UK riding, from trail centre blasts to enduro racing and big mountain adventures with everything in between. Also available as a frame pack and our custom builds/rolling chassis bundles so you can build to your exact specs, but the stock one gets pretty close to perfection!
Available in any colour long as it’s black but with a huge list of pivot hardware and finishing kit colour options. These bikes are pretty complicated, it’s best to call and chat through the options but we will do our best to lay it all out here. See other items for paid upgrades (Reserve carbon wheels etc – only like for like no cost changes are listed here)
Six colour options including green only before available to sponsored riders, 170/175 cranks in X01 and all crank lengths with the Hope crank option which we are offering at no extra charge (we keep the X01 cranks). No cost change to Ohlins suspension – RXF 36 Evo in either air or coil up front and a TTX Air out back custom tuned to the HB130.
Paid upgrade option to Santa Cruz Reserve carbon rims available for £1350 at the point of order.
