HOPE Seatpost Carbon
In the past, bike parts have become more and more defined by the struggle between weight, stiffness and durability. Carbon is the material of choice to meet these requirements. While the HOPE parts traditionally focused on CNC machined aluminum components, it is now time to expand the product portfolio with carbon components. Hopes entry into the carbon market is fully in line with the claim - Made in the UK.
Each seat post consists of 24 individual pre-impregnated, high-strength carbon layers, known as prepregs, to ensure a safe and robust unit. The largest share is made of unidirectional T700 carbon - the standard modulus fiber with the highest tensile strength - which were processed to different wall thicknesses.
In addition, strategically positioned layers of 3K carbon fabric are used. This provides the necessary strength for the clamping area and a good-natured fracture behavior in the event of a major accident.
Also, the 1K outer layer with 2/2 twill weave (oblique, parallel lines) contributes to these properties and thus offers an extremely smooth surface with excellent aesthetics. Twill weaves have fewer thread crossings and thus give higher strengths in the laminate.
The ultra-fine adjustable seatpost mount can be ordered in the version for round or oval seat stays.
