- Help me identify this Hope brake
I’ve just bought a brake from the classifieds which was sold to me as a Hope M4. It sure isn’t what I expected, I was expecting a Mini lever and 4-pot caliper which took 2 pairs of pads.
If someone can work out what it is and most importantly which brake pads will fit then I’d really appreciate it.
I’m guessing it is some very old E4 model and will take XC4 pads…
I’ve tried to unsert a couple of pics, but if it fails then the link is here

It’s a closed system (from the lever) so Hope XC4 ?Posted 9 years agoAndyPaiceMember
its got the pro lever which is a closed system. it will heat uo on even short downhills and you’ll have to wind out the silver cap on the top of the lever to stop the pads binding on the disc as the fluid heats up (dont forget to wind them back in after the’ve cooled or it’s no brakes for the next DH).
I used to run C2s, which used the same lever, and they heated up badly on even short downhills.
I recon that is at least 8 years old and worth sod all, so maybe ask for a refund as they do not look like m4s and the xc4s were poor brakes even for a light xc bike!Posted 9 years ago
