HOPE disc brake CX converter V-Twin X2 | Set black
Since many Cyclo-Crosser and racing bikes now come with disc brake mounts Hope has developed the V-Twin, a aluminum CNC-milled converter with two master piston. It is attached to a holder between stem and spacers on the steerer and tucked discreetly under the porch. The V-Twin is then driven through the conventional STI's via short Bowden connection and converts the braking process into easily controllable, hydraulic brake power.
The filigree X2 pliers is the result of development work with COSMOSWorks FEA (Finite Element Analysis). This makes it possible to reduce weight, improve aesthetics and to produce the ideal partner to the Tech lever. The forceps as usual machined from 2014 T6 aluminum.
The diameter of the piston has been increased by more brake force to be transferred to the brake disc. The sealed bleed nipple provide easier maintenance and further projecting fluid outlet ease the installation of the line.
At high rider weight, long runs or if it should be the maximum brake power just to the V-Twin is recommended with E4 calipers with four pistons.
