Hope: Hoops Pro 3 SP-XC3 (pair)
The Pro 3 SP-XC3 wheelset has been designed specifically with weight saving in mind. To achieve the sort of competitive weights required for racing and performance riding, weight has been taken from the hub and rotor – instead of using fragile, overlight components in the rim and spokes. The resulting wheel is a perfect mix of strength to weight, which has already been taken to many race wins. We suggest a rider weight limit of 85kg. This is only a guideline, but common sense should be used with regards to the type of riding they will be used for.
The 3 fixed arms on the hub help to create a stiff mounting point for the rotor, reduce weight and help to dissipate heat effectively. The hubs have stainless steel bearings and use the proven ratchet system as used in the Pro2 and other Pro3 hubs.
Wheels are supplied with NoTubes Crest rims and are built and hand finished in Barnoldswick using Sapim Sprint double butted spokes and brass Polyax nipples.
The NoTubes Crest offers the rider the choice of running tubeless as well as a superlight overall weight. This wheel screams FAST! The wheels are 24 hole drilling.
Wheels are available individually or as a pair and come complete with rim tapes, spare spokes and nipples and rim stickers. Both wheels are QR and the fronts are supplied with a 15mm conversion and the rear is convertable to 10mm bolt through (NOTE: this hub cannot be converted to 20mm).
