Hope Tech 3 X2 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.

X2 Caliper Features:

  • This neat, slimline caliper optimises the very latest COSMOSWorks FEA (Finite Element Analysis) software to reduce unnecessary weight,improve aesthetics and create a high performance partnership with the Tech Evo Lever.
  • The caliper is machined from a solid billet of 2014 T6 aircraft spec aluminium alloy and an increased piston diameter, generating more usable braking force on the rotor.
  • 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.

X2 Caliper Specifications:

  • 'On the fly' BPC (bite point control) and Reach adjustment
  • Direct compatibility with Shimano I-Spec shifter
  • Direct mount available for SRAM shifters
  • 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
  • CNC machined in Barnoldswick, England
  • 9.74 caliper with all mount options
  • 2014 T6 aluminium alloy
  • Wide angle hose connector mount
  • Top entry pad fitting
  • Fixed or floating rotor
  • Black braided hose
  • 140, 160, 183mm rotor sizes
  • Weight: from 340g

The Tech 3 X2 - perfect for all XC and light freeride applications, this brake is a perfect blend of power, low weight and adjustability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hope is best Not sure I would use the x2 for a full downhill bike but on my Yeti SB95 that I ride very aggressively they are amazing, Look great and I am constantly getting comments on how cool my brakes look. And the best is I think they perform even better then they look. Being a bigger guy (99 kilos) I was a little worried about power. But that isnt a concern any more. 28 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swear by hop brakes now Cannot fault it, beyond sharp and just sexy looking. 22 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by top notch brakes Brilliant brakes that fitted easily and after a ride to bed in have proved great at their job of stopping! Hope are a top UK manufactured brand I'd happily spend money on..... 17 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice indeed. I don't normally write reviews but couldn't find any reviews when I was buying these so I feel it is my duty to write the worlds first review of the tech 3 x2. I don't have a massive history of hydraulic breaks to compare these with but I have had Avid Juicys on a hard tail (which were rubbish) and bought these to replace some Shimano Br M395's that were fitted to my new full susser. The Hopes have way more power than the other set ups I have had. Once I got them bedded in, and they do need bedding in, the stopping power was huge. Sharp to a point that it took a bit of getting used to. I have had three rides with them now, a very wet and muddy turn round my local woods, a flat cross country run and a session in a trail centre and it was at the trail centre that the Hopes really shone. Chuffed to bits. The build quality is excellent and they look the nuts. My only small complaints are that the bite point adjuster does not seem to have a huge effect and they aren't all that light, only 70g lighter than the bottom of the range Shimanos that they replaced. But apart from that I love them and plan to have them on my rig for years to come. All I have to do now is save up for some bling Hope floating rotors to go with them. 29 December 2013

Answers

Answer: 
Hose lengths will vary from brand to brand, and even across production runs of the same model but front hose should be around 900mm for the front and 1600mm for the rear.
The brakes are supplied as caliper, hose and lever; pre-bled and ready for installation.
