The new Hope Tech rims have a 35mm internal width for anyone wanting to play with new tire sizes. They weigh 580-grams, about 80-grams up on the normal enduro rim. These are due out in November and the pricing will land around their existing enduro rims.

New Hope carbon handlebars will be coming out in January. The large diameter of the middle section of these bars carries through the tube ends much like it does on their aluminum bars, providing strength. The target weight for these carbon bars is 225grams. The bar is 31.8mm now but there is a high likelihood of a 35mm version popping up at some point as well. Hope stems are going 35mm now.
