- hope v4 brakes.
The v4 vented rotor is totally different if you take a look at the pics, it looks exactly like an M4 rotor just vented – where as the V2 discs are gigantic. Therefore I don’t think the discs are going to be the same as on the V2.
Which is kind of a pain because extra modulation is always a good thing and I was considering swapping the calipers but it will mean swapping out the discs. Might as well sell the brakes in that case – but I don’t think I can justify that.Posted 5 years agodirtydogMember
Some info here for you
Hope’s faithful V2 had been in service since 2007 when it was introduced with the old Moto lever, but with the game of evolution never ending it was time for a refresh and rethink. In its place is the V4, a larger and more powerful version of the M4 and capable of accepting Hopes vented rotors. Featuring longer and shallower pads with greater surface area than the outgoing brake allows all Hope brakes to now use the same depth of rotor. The new caliper is stiffer too, controlled by Hope’s Tech Evo lever with bearing pivots and an increase in power of 15% thanks to revised geometry. The leading piston is 18mm while the smaller trailing is 16mm and stolen from the M4. Lighter, better performing and smoother acting, it should add up to a very high performance brake.Posted 5 years agomaslettSubscriber
Just got a V4 to replace the M4 I had on the front of my bike. Looks like it’ll work fine with the old M4 solid rotor. Initial up and down the road outside the house test suggests it’s a good amount more powerful than the M4 it’s replaced and the new Evo lever feels a lot smoother than the old Tech lever.
Will see what it’s like in the mud and hills Sunday but first impressions are good.Posted 5 years agoboarderMember
