HOPE disc brake Tech 4 X2 | separate silver
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 filigree X2 pliers 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. The pliers are milled from 2014 T6 aluminum as usual. The diameter of the pistons has been increased in order to be able to transmit more braking power to the brake disc. Sealed bleed nipples allow for easier maintenance and the extended fluid outlet simplifies line routing. The brake pads, which can be mounted from above, also contribute to easy handling. For a super elegant look and long durability, the brake is completely anodized and has lasered HOPE logos.
These noble cables ensure an improved pressure point, longer service life and an ingenious look. Furthermore, tearing off or kinking of the line in the event of a fall is effectively prevented. The only disadvantage is the small additional weight.
Hybrid pistons made of steel and phenol are easier to move and require less maintenance. At the same time, the use of phenol ensures better heat dissipation under extreme stress.
