It’s been a while since we first saw Hope’s first foray into carbon component manufacture, and the company were displaying their latest lightweight parts at Eurobike 2015, including a carbon seatpost and a work-in-progress carbon bar.
100% designed, tested and manufactured at their facility in Barnoldswick, England, the seatpost is made using high strength carbon fibre with aircraft grade aluminium seat rail clamps. It has a smooth internal surface finish which removes any unnecessary resin rich areas to minimise weight and is available in Ø27.2mm, Ø30.9mm and Ø31.6mm.
Weighing in at 195 grams for the Ø27.2mm version, it’ll be available from Chain Reaction Cycles in January 2016.

Also on display was this work-in-progress carbon bar, which we’re expecting to see on sale sometime in 2016. Watch this space…
Hope was using this Santa Cruz bike to show off their latest components…awesome or what?!
