Tech 3 Master Cylinder
Hope have kept the key features of the Tech Evo master cylinder and worked to improve the ergonomics and integration on the handlebars. The Tech 3 master cylinder offers a slight increase of power of about 5% over the Tech Evo.
Popular design features of Tech Evo remain the same, such as the reach and bite point control (BPC)adjustability. The piston is actuated by a cam and a roller system to eliminate any free play and initial friction. The classic split clamp design makes the master cylinder easy to install on the handlebars without having to remove anything else.
Some riders have previously commented on the relative bulkiness of the old Tech and Tech Evo master cylinders, sometimes making it hard to fit the master cylinder around already clogged up handlebars (shifters, fork and shock lockouts, telescopic seat post controls etc). Hope have worked hard to make the new Tech 3 master cylinder easier to integrate on the bars although it does entail losing the ambidextrous design.
The Tech 3 master cylinder is now directly compatible with any Shimano I-Spec type shifter meaning no extra mount is required to attach the shifter to the master cylinder and for those using SRAM shifters Hope have designed a slick and minimalistic direct mount adapter.
The revised one piece caliper is CNC machined from a solid billet of 2014 T6 aircraft spec aluminium alloy. The increased caliper stiffness gives better efficiency as well as increased pad surface area for better heat management and pad life. The new V4 as a complete unit inc rotor is lighter than the previous V2 model.
