9th March

Due to high demand Hope have increased the estimated build time of new wheel orders to 14 days.  Hub orders are now taking 10 days so hand built wheel orders may also be affected.

24th February 2023

From Friday 24th February all Hope factory built wheels will have the new Pro5 hubs. I am in the process of updating the website but the new prices will be applicable immediately.  Delivery of the new wheels will start on 1st March.

New Hope Pro5 hubs

Hope are replacing the Pro4 and RS4 hubs with the new Pro5, which will be available in both Centerlock and 6-bolt disc mounts.  Currently Factory built wheels are still being built with Pro4 and RS4 hubs but all current versions will be able to be ordered with Pro5 hubs for (expected) delivery in the 2nd week of March. Pricing will be updated shortly (there is a price increase for Pro5 hubs)

Hope lead time for all their factory built wheels is down to about 2 working days.

Hand built wheels (built by me) take about a week.
