Hubs - Hope Pro 5 E Bike Specific Boost (110/15 front/148/12 rear) -
Building on Hope’s 30+ years of manufacturing hubs, the Pro 5 is the combination of our all experience to meet and exceed the demands of current and future bike technology.
The Pro 4 proved to be one of the most reliable and versatile hubs on the market. The Pro 5 builds on this with improvements throughout, offering the right balance between speed of pick-up, load capacity, durability and drag.
Externally the shell takes a new profile to add stiffness without adding weight whilst housing a new axle design enabling the use of bigger bearings in a better arrangement to fit the latest freehub standards whilst increasing load capacity.
Completely new for the Pro 5 is the option of an e-bike specific hub that comes with a freehub tailor made for the stresses and strains of e-bike use.
