The Nukeproof Hope Mini Pads have been tested over the last year by our riders, blind tested against other pads, and found to outperform everything else on the market. These are the best brake pads we've ever used. Made in Japan, all feature a semi-metallic compound, tailored for different riding conditions. Trail pads are high quality pad for any rider, whatever the conditions throw at you. Enduro offer higher performance for riders that like to use their brakes hard and need more durability. DH pads are for high speed racers scrubbing off speed on a run needing power, consistence and control. All pads feature steel backplates for heat dissipation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Good stopping power
Been riding the Endura version of these for about six months on some pretty tough routes in the north of England and Wales including The Beast at Coed Y Brenin. After the initial break in period I have found them to be very good at stopping and I have no fear that they wont give great performance in tricky situations. They do tend to squeal in the wet but I think that is the same with most pads and is more to do with contamination than the pads themselves.
