HOPE disc brake Tech 4 E4 | single Purple
Tech 4 Levers
Not only has the Tech 4 brake lever changed a lot in terms of looks, but Hope has also taken a big step forward in terms of technical properties. The expansion tank has been enlarged and redesigned. Thanks to the new design, the Tech 4 brake lever can transmit 30% more braking power. For a particularly light lever feel, the spring rate has been reduced and a guide for the brake piston is used. The ease of movement is supported by an industrial ball bearing at the pivot point. The brake lever has become longer for better modulation and more control on the trail.
As before, the lever width and the pressure point can be adjusted without tools. The two-piece clamp for attachment to the handlebar simplifies assembly, since nothing has to be removed from the handlebar for assembly. Matching Hope Matchmakers for SRAM triggers and only Shimano EV triggers can be attached to a thread on the underside of the reservoir.
The very stiff and yet finely milled Hope E4 brake caliper is ready for anything. High braking performance, excellent dosing and thermal dimming, which reliably brings even the heaviest riders to a standstill in the toughest terrain. The pliers, which are milled from 2014 T6 aluminum as usual, are the result of development work with COSMOSWorks FEA (Finite Element Analysis). This makes it possible to reduce weight, improve aesthetics and create the ideal partner for the tech lever. Sealed bleed nipples allow for easier maintenance and the extended fluid outlet simplifies line routing.

These noble cables ensure an improved pressure point, longer service life and an ingenious look! Furthermore, tearing off or kinking of the cable in the event of a fall is effectively prevented. The only disadvantage is the small additional weight.
The hybrid steel and phenolic pistons are easier to move and require less maintenance. At the same time, the use of phenol ensures better heat dissipation under extreme loads.
