Hope adds carbon option to crank range, plus brown is so in right now

Hope’s new Carbon Cranks complement the brand’s existing alloy crank range.

The cranks are moulded around a foam insert. This is very firm to the touch and, according to Hope, provides impact resistance, transferring energy from a side-on impact to the other side of the crank arm in the event of a crash. It's also said to dampen vibrations. 

Speaking to BikeRadar, a Hope spokesperson said the learnings gained from developing the HBT track bike have accelerated the brand’s knowledge in carbon fibre design: “We’ve learned what could have taken 10 or 15 years in two years with [that bike] and our collaboration with British Cycling."

Hope was also showing off its range of new 'bronze' anodised components. The highlight of the stand was this absolutely brown-tastic version of its HB.916 enduro bike.
