UK-based Hope Technology just launched two fresh products today. Find details about the new Hope carbon crankset and TR Stem below.

Hope Carbon EVO Crankset

Hope just furthered their commitment to carbon fiber production in the UK with the addition of a new Carbon EVO crankset. They now make carbon handlebars, a seatpost, and their HB916 bike in-house at their Barnoldswick factory. The new Carbon EVO cranks are made using a carbon layup that Hope claims tunes the cranks for a unique ride feel. Longevity and serviceability are also considered in the manufacturing by using a 1K outer carbon fiber fabric for enhanced abrasion resistance and replaceable pedal threads. Find the full set of specs and features from the Hope press release below.
