Hope Release DH-Specific Pro5 Hub.

Designed to work specifically with 7-speed downhill drive trains and offering equally spaced hub flanges, the Hope Pro5 DH is here.

A year after launching the Pro5 hub to the world, Hope have released a DH-specific version with 7 speed drive trains in mind and flanges equally spaced for increased wheel strength.

Key features:

  • Increased hub shell strength and stiffness 
  • Steel freehub
  • XD and HG freehub versions available.
  • XD freehub for fitting single piece cassettes and HG allows multi-piece cassettes and the option to build your own from an 11spd cassette 
  • 148 and 150/157 hub width 
  • 54 point engagement
  • Hub shell machined from a single forged aluminium billet
  • Standard 6 bolt disc fitting
  • £230.00 RRP
  • HopeTech.com

With many modern downhill bikes coming fitted with the SRAM DH drive train or riders building their own 7-speed drives from Shimano multi-part cassettes, Hope have designed a Pro5 hub with this in mind.

The benefits of shortening the freehub to accommodate fewer cogs means that their design team have been able to make the hub flange spacing equal. This allows a wider spoke bracing angle and equal spoke tension, which in turn leads to a stronger wheel on a symmetric rim.

Add to this the labyrinth seal for reduced drag and the 54t pickup of the Pro 5, you’ve got a very fast, smooth hub that also enjoys legendary Hope hub longevity. The hub is available in 6-bolt only and the usual plethora of colours offered by Hope.
