TECH EVO LEVER

For 2012 the lever pivot has been slightly shortened which translates to a 15% increase in power. The Tech Evo lever now has a roller fitted to the cam mechanism, further enhancing the smooth feel of the lever.

Ambidextrous ‘flip flop’ design, CNC machined from a solid billet of 2014 T6 aircraft spec aluminium alloy - with a split clamp to allow easy set up and choice of positioning. Redesigned piston, lever and pivot assembly with external ‘on the fly’ reach and bite point adjustment dials. The lever linkage eliminates freeplay in the lever giving a consistent and reliable feel to the brake. Further developments include bearing lever pivots for smooth, rock free use and increased lever ergonomics with a perforated lever for extra grip and feel. Also, a double sided reservoir lid makes for easy bleeding. The brake is supplied with a choice of either hi tensile polyester reinforced or Goodridge stainless steel braided hose.

M4 CALIPER

The one piece caliper is CNC machined from a solid billet of 2014 T6 aircraft spec aluminium alloy. The M4 caliper uses four identical 16mm phenolic pistons which gives more usable power to the brake, whilst keeping our ledgendary "feel". 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

    Being an AM type of rider, I wanted a brake system that was going to hold up just about anything I can throw at it, and I'm pleased to report the Hope M4's have exceeded my expectations! Besides the fact that these are without a doubt one of the best looking brake systems out there, they are hands down one of the best performing! Quality, as with everything designed and built by Hope is second to none, and although some have stated installation was complicated, if you know what you're doing, they're a snap to install and setup. I had both the fronts and the rears, on and rolling in under an hour and that was taking my time. While these may be on the pricier side, factoring the additional cost of a good rotor, you do get what you pay for. All in all, I'm glad I went with the Hope M4's!

    The fronts worked fine but no matter how many times I bled the rear brakes it would not get rid of the mushy lever feel. I could never get the rear levers to feel as firm as the front. For the price I expect nothing but perfection. Gonna return it!

    Comments about Hope Technology Hope Tech M4 Evo Disc Brake 2012:

    I had some difficulty installing the front calipers to ISO mounts on my fork but eventually got them on and aligned. The alignment method in Hope's YouTube videos seemed hokey at first but really is simple once you play with them a bit. These have huge stopping power compared to what I was used to and really good modulation. Depending on your setup there may be difficulty in locating the correct adapters. Make sure you can get them for your rotor size and mount type before ordering.

    Comments about Hope Technology Hope Tech M4 Evo Disc Brake 2012:

    These are on the front of my latest trail bike build. Having tried Shimano and Avid brakes, I love the modulation, ease of adjustment, and serviceability of these brakes. You can get every small part online and bleeding them works just like bleeding the brakes on a car. No syringes necessary. They have great stopping power. My fingers fade before these brakes do. Centering the brakes is a little tricky and takes some practice. Check out the hope tech website for instructions.

        Comments about Hope Technology Hope Tech M4 Evo Disc Brake 2012:

        Replaced a set of Elixir 5's with these and I couldn't be happier. We won't talk bad about the Elixirs, but they were less than a year old, so form your own opinion.
        Once I tuned the Hopes in and got the brake calipers centered, I have not had a single issue with them. Great braking power with single finger control.
        I would suggest that you consider positionong the brakes to the inside of the gear shifts. In this set-up, I was able to move the levers so that my index fingers grab the sweet spot just before the end of the lever. That gave me the most power with the least effort, and without moving hand position.
        If you purchase, you won't have any regrets. They are a solid, quality product.

              Comments about Hope Technology Hope Tech M4 Evo Disc Brake 2012:

              This is my first set of the M4. I've run the X2's for almost 3 years and no issues, these have a bit more power. Alot more actually. Bolted up and went riding. The rotors don't come with them, but I was running the floating rotors from the X2's. If you run new rotors, you must bed these before you do any long downhills or they won't develope the correct feel!! That said, these things are so nice. The reach/contact adjustments work great. They have alot of power, but it is completely controllable. I brake the same as my old X2's, but there is still some left over power. They haven't faded or pumped up. All one finger or 2 if you like, but you don't have to pull on them. And it's not at all an on/off brake. Really good brakes.

              These extremely beautiful brakes came bled and ready to go out of the box. The hoses were just the right length for my Large Ellsworth Moment w/ Marz 5.5. There is definitely no ON/OFF feel with these brakes and the bite point/reach adjustment makes it easy to dial em in just right. I don't really know what else to say. I think at this price point they are the obvious choice. Did I mention they're pretty.
