Hope Tech 3 E4 Disc Brake

We 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 can operate all the calipers from our range and 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.

Hope Tech 3 - Some riders have previously commented on the relative bulkiness of the 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).

We 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.

For those using SRAM shifters we have designed a slick and minimalistic direct mount adaptor.

E4 Caliper Features:

  • The one piece caliper is CNC machined from a solid billet of 2014 T6 aircraft spec aluminium alloy.
  • The E4 caliper uses four identical 16mm phenolic pistons which gives more usable power to the brake, whilst keeping our ledgendary "feel".

E4 Caliper Specifications:

  • 'On the fly' BPC (bite point control) and Reach adjustment
  • 5% power increase over TECH Evo master cylinder
  • Handed master cylinders for better integration on the handlebars
  • New piston dust cover design
  • New reservoir diaphragm design
  • Direct compatibility with Shimano I-Spec shifter
  • Direct mount available for SRAM shifters
  • CNC machined in Barnoldswick, England
  • 9.74 caliper with all mount options
  • 2014 T6 aluminium alloy
  • One piece caliper
  • Four identical 16mm phenolic pistons gives more usable power to the brake
  • Wide angle hose connector mount
  • Top entry pad fitting
  • Black hose
  • Weight: from 400g
  • Rotor and mounts not included

With it’s revised caliper and brilliant Tech 3 lever, the E4 offers a wide range of riders the power and adjustability they need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful and Powerful Out of the box, do take the time to admire the quality build of these units! They are absolute stunners in quality and machining. Every detail about the brake tells you that your money was well spent. But when you get them fitted and set-up (takes some time to get right), they are excellent stoppers. If you are use to "instant on" brakes, these are not for you. If you want superb power with unbelievable modulation range, look nowhere else. Once the pads are bedded in, the E4 really comes alive. Lever reach and pad bite adjustments work well to tweak the system to your preference. 07 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hope E4 brakes These are great looking and very powerful brake. They have adjustable bite point and reach so they can be setup just how you like your brakes to be. 28 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hope Tech 3 just keeps getting better I've been relying on Hope stoppers for the past 13 years. Just when I think they have achieved perfection they bring out something even better. Just fitted these to a new 650B rig and got A1 performance straight out of the box. Reach and bite adjustment just so easy, very progressive with awesome stopping power when full on. Got the incredibly bling purple ones this time. It's hard to beat the value for money here, given that Hope products are such high quality, beautifully made and the support team are easily accessible if you do have a technical question, with good down to earth answers. 19 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hope goodness What can I say really, hope are the ones Bit fiddly to set up right but once set they are good as gold, although I'd prefer sintered pads from the start 09 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent brakes and great price Bought these brakes for my mega am, they have un believable stopping power!! the purple looks awesome with my yellow bars, that aside when combined with the hope rotors you're served with the best stopping power bar none! considering that i had moved from a well used set of elixir 7's i doubt ill be buying any other brakes for a long while!! 27 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great performance and modulation Hope are my preferred choice of brake. I am always on the look out for the next best thing and i love performance and quality, I am not led by brands or price I simply look for what works the best and prefroms the best. I have used a huge range of brakes from Shimano, Avid, Formula and Magura either as factory fitted to a new bike or an upgrade to try something different and every single time these are replaced with Hopes. I do like Shimano XTR and XT but they are very much an On or Off brake where the hopes give alot more feel. I have now purchased my 3rd set of new Tech 3 to upgrade my bikes and i still run a bike with the tech 2. I prefer the look of the tech 3 now they have moved away from flip flop lever design which makes these sit alot better on the bars. I don't think i can feel the improved braking performance from 2 to 3 but they work extremely well, easy to set up and are a great price. I saw the purple which look awful (the wife likes them) the black are great but the CNC machining does make cleaning difficult. I always use the braided hose version, look good and in my mind i feel happier having braided hoses. Great brakes 14 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by state of the art brakes with flawless finish Have been using these for a few 100 kms now. They took a while to bed in, but were super easy to fit. Power is now superb and modulation compared to my old elixir 5s is another league. Get these if you want no fuss braking with very little maintenance required. I also have x2s which have 1000s of km and are only now needing new pads and a bleed. These 4-piston brakes are also lighter than the 2-piston brakes they replaced, sweet! 07 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Oozes class... Along with the many other hope parts bolted on my rig, these look amazing and perform like you'd expect from the wizards at Hopetech! Easy to adjust, bleed and fit. More than enough power to lock the wheels but with great feel through the levers you can have as much, or as little as you want. Highly recommend with the Hope Saw disc! 01 April 2014

Answer: 
You'll need to order a front one and a rear one and specify which side you want the lever on. So for UK I think most people go front brake lever on the right and rear on the left. Plus they don't usually come with rotors. Order them in the size and bolt count you need. Might need an adaptor as well if you are going bigger on the rotor dimensions. Awesome brake once you figure out how to buy them...

Answer: 
As long as your current brakes are running Post Mount calipers (74mm between mounting holes) these Hope calipers should be a straight swap, yes. Ideally and for best performance you should consider new rotors as well, as the current ones may be worn and or caked with pad material from the existing brakes.

Answer: 
If you are already using 180mm rotor, no issues as you would already have the appropriate caliper post adaptor.

Answer: 
While the hose length will vary slightly from one set to the next, the front hose should run around 900mm, and the rear around 1600mm.
The brakes are supplied as the lever, hose and caliper; pre-bled and ready to install.
