We first set eyes on the prototype Hope Tech 4 Brake Master Cylinder back at the Tweed Valley EWS where it was paired with Tech 3 calipers, mounted to Hope’s as-of-yet unreleased High Pivot Prototype Enduro Bike . Much lower in profile than the Master Cylinder of the Tech 3 brake, the Tech 4 also had a longer lever suggestive of a brake that would require less hand strength to operate. That was just one of the aims in developing the Tech 4, said to be significantly more powerful than anything we’ve seen from Hope before now.

The new Hope Tech 4 brakes get a raft of updates in the name of increasing braking power and reducing rider fatigue. As compared to the Tech 3, the Tech 4 is said to deliver 30% more braking power at the same given pressure applied, all while retaining the feel and modulation Hope riders will be accustomed to. The new Hope Tech 4 Master Cylinder and Lever with E4 caliper and braided hose will retail at £205 ($260.00 (excluding tax)). The new hinged clamp reduces weight of the overall package. The increase in power is as a result of the improved hydraulic and mechanical ratios, the result of which is a linear relationship between brake pressure and lever force, said to make it easier and […]
