The Pro3 SP-XC3 wheelset has been designed specifically with weight saving in mind.
|Wheel Size:||26" (559)|
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, including the National Championship Title - and is the wheel of choice for our very own XC racer Paul Oldham, Scott UK's Nick Craig and Stu Bowers and Lapierre rider Will Longden.
These are lightweight XC and race orientated wheels. Hope suggest a rider weight limit og 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 uses stainless steel bearings and the proven ratchet system as used in the Pro2 and other Pro3 ranges.
Rim choice is again available in this wheelset. DT Swiss 4.2 or No Tubes Crest - and for 2009 Hope are building and hand finishing in the Barnoldswick factory using Sapim Sprint double butted spokes and brass Polyax nipples.
The No Tubes Crest offers the rider the choice of running tubeless as well as superlight overall weight. This wheel screams FAST! The DT Swiss 4.2 gives excellent all round XC performance with a proven lightweight, high quality rim.
Both wheels are QR and the fronts are supplied with a 15mm conversion, but please note this hub cannot be converted to 20mm.
