2019 Hope HB160
January 14th 2019 sees the introduction of some fresh changes to the HB.160. We’ve kept some of the unique features customers have come to love and applied some of the feedback received from our dealers to implement an updated spec. Not only that, we’ve chosen some logical upgrade packages to allow customers to further customise their HB.160. And of course, the HB.160 is still designed, tested and manufactured in Barnoldswick, UK.
New for 2019:
SRAM X01 EAGLE DRIVE TRAIN
For 2019, we are introducing the SRAM Eagle X01 system to the bike. It’s a full group set including cranks and all bikes will leave the factory with this drivetrain. We have Hope cranks/chainring as an optional upgrade which will be sent with the bike and you will be responsible for fitting. The customer will retain the SRAM crank.
Having sampled several carbon rims, we have settled on the Santa Cruz Reserve rims for a number of reasons – Solid ride feel, not too stiff, good price point and of course lifetime warranty. The wheels are built here at Hope on whichever hub colour you require. Warranty claims would go through ourselves. Carbon wheels are available to buy with bikes and separately to existing customers- strictly for the HB.160 only.
OHLINS SUSPENSION PACKAGE
In response to feedback, we have added another suspension option, further opening up customisation options. We can offer Ohlins new RXF 36 Trail fork and their TTX22 Coil shock for £50 upgrade fee. Due to dimensions, the air shock is not available. *Please note Ohlins suspension packages are available from MID MARCH 2019.
FOX COIL SHOCK OPTION
The Fox DH X2 Coil will also be available on 2019 bikes. The shock will come with 475 spring as standard and come at an additional cost of £150.
Feedback from dealers has suggested that several HB owners have requested decal kits to fit Fork, Shock and Rims. We have taken the liberty of creating a custom HB.160 decal package to match all seven colour options plus a special yellow set to match the Ohlins suspension package. Decal kits will RRP at £30 and will sent out with each order for the dealer to fit.
