Hope Tech M4 Disc Brake Kit

New M4 CALIPER revised one piece caliper, CNC machined from a solid billet of 2014 T6 aircraft spec aluminium alloy. The M4 caliper has been developed for 09, primarily the two piston sizes have now become the same 16mm diameter (as opposed to a small and a large) which gives more usable power to the brake. A drip free bleed nipple and wide angle orientation of the fluid inlet connector have also been added, allowing for neater hose routing and cleaner servicing. The caliper is completed with a durable anodised finish to withstand weather, cleaning and general trail use and laser etched graphics. The M4 caliper has been used by Team MBUK/Bike Radar's Marc Beaumont to win World Cup DH rounds, as well as 'Joe Average' on his weekend thrash in the woods - making this one of the most versatile brakes in the range.

Super stopping power!

PostedMarch 29, 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
These brakes are amazingly powerful! I upgraded from my old V Brakes because I found the performance in rain and mud to be pretty bad. Fitting these brakes is extremely simple, ensure that you get the correct mounting brackets. If you are unsure which brackets you might need, contact Evans first or take a look on Hope's website. I would recommend getting a decent cable cutter if you don't have one already. Don't try using a cheaper alternative to cut the cables after investing in a great product like this! Braking is now razor sharp and a real pleasure. You know that in those extreme circumstances when you need to stop as quickly as possible, these will more than do the job. I have done over 300 miles so far and have not noticed any fade in power after sustained usage. The brake levers are also very well designed. Lots of adjustment without the need of tools and the holes drilled into the levels mean that your fingers really grip them even when wet. Buy them now!!
