The latest Barnoldswick, England-made product from Hope Technology is the fully serviceable Hope Pro 5 Hub, which builds on the reliable fan-favorite Pro 4 by implementing several key design changes. You can learn what’s new and find more photos and a launch video here…

Just announced, the Hope Pro 5 Hub is the Barnoldswick, England-based manufacturer’s latest precision-made component, and it builds on everything they’ve learned about designing and manufacturing hubs since 1993. As a long-awaited update to 2016’s Pro 4 Hub, they say the Pro 5 is made to meet and exceed the demands of current and future bike tech.

A couple of key updates found in the Pro 5 are new zero-drag Labyrinth seals and a revised ratchet and pawl system with new springs, both of which are designed to up the load capacity and durability compared to its predecessor. The revised six-pawl freehub design boasts an updated 108 points of engagement (up from 44) to offer a more responsive feel. Taken together, Hope says these design changes offer “the right balance between speed of pick-up, load capacity, durability, and drag.”

Outside, the hub shell has a new profile that adds stiffness without increasing the weight. It also houses a revised axle design that facilitates the use of bigger bearings in an improved arrangement to fit the latest freehub standards and increase load capacity. The Hope Pro 5 is available in several versions to accommodate a range of disc fittings, spoke counts/designs, freehub bodies, and frame and fork standards.

The Pro 5 is also designed to be fully serviceable and rebuildable using only simple tools. And, should any part need to be replaced, Hope is committed to making spares available for 10 years after the hub is someday discontinued. Hubs are offered in a variety of vibrant colors as well as classic silver and black. Price start at £95/$115 for a front hub and £220/$265 for a rear hub, and complete wheels are also available for purchase.
