    I’ve not managed to shear a maxle 😕 … but I’ve destroyed a number of Hope Pro2 Rear axles before upgrading to the EVO axle.

    Where did it shear? I’ve had one go at the lever end due to over tightening, but nothing on the actual shaft itself

    As title really, I’ve just been upto Torridon on a new bike only ridden it 5 times previously and nothing as tough or techy as Torridon trails and the rear maxle has sheared. I’ll contact the shop the first but may have to speak to dealer, needless to say I am a bit surprised and disappointed as its a 1k mile round trip. Luckily I’d taken my old bike so got out for a full day yesterday!

    Mine sheared off the other week just at the start of the threaded bit, also using a hope hub

    Hope hubs causing maxles to fail? 😕

    Mine went twice on a Pro 3, second time round Hope upgraded it (for free, as they do) & It’s been champion since.
    (Mightv’e actually been a downgrade cos they put a steel one in but It’s mended)

    Mine is slightly different in that it bolts through from one side the full width and then on the on the threaded end there is another short bolt that screws into it but only the width of the frame if you follow……… It’s sheared through the most inner threads on the long bolt if that makes sense?
