Hope Launches Carbon Crank, New Stem and Unlimited Bronze Colorway 1

Plenty of fresh goods from Barnoldswick.

First up, let us introduce the long-awaited carbon version of our tried-and-tested EVO cranks. The Carbon Crank has been designed to maximise the advantages of carbon fibre, through a unique construction method whilst using very small aluminium inserts to keep weight down. This, coupled with an optimised lay-up, ensures a good balance between ride feel, stiffness, and isolation from trail chatter.

Longevity and serviceability are considered in everything we do, and the Carbon Crank is no exception. With a 1K outer fabric used for enhanced abrasion resistance, the crank also features replaceable pedal threads, and like the Evo cranks, its axles and chainrings are interchangeable, making it compatible with most drivetrains and frames. Covering you for the future. Much like our HB916, Carbon Bars & Seatpost, the crank was designed, tested and manufactured in our Barnoldswick factory, showcasing our commitment to maintain the highest standards of Carbon fibre production in the UK.

All-New TR Stem

Designed to supersede the AM stem, the all-new TR stem matches the aesthetic of the Gravity stem but is tailored for downcountry/trail and all mountain use. This new stem is lighter and stiffer compared to the outgoing model, boasting a design that complements the other stems in our range.
A notable feature of the TR stem is the introduction of a 40mm length to help achieve the perfect setup.

Updated PF41 BB

At Hope we believe 30mm crank axles are the way forward. One of the limited downsides is when fitting into a Ø41mm bottom bracket shell that is designed for a 24mm axle. Previously, our solution involved two bearings pressed directly into the shell. While capable of handling the loads, the absence of internal and external sealing tended to reduce their lifespan more than we desired. We now have a new solution. A custom designed, and Swiss manufactured bearing that allows us to offer a full bottom bracket assembly with fully sealed internal centre tube and external bearing shields.
These bearings are also more tolerant to misalignment to account for manufacturing tolerances in the frame BB shell. All this creates a more durable and longer lasting bottom bracket. Long live 30mm crank axles!
