The All-Mountain and Enduro Brake – Hope Tech 3 E4 Red Edition
Hope 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).
Hape 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 Hope have designed a slick and minimalistic direct mount adaptor.
Hope E4 Caliper
Tech 3 lever matched with the E4 caliper offers an excellent brake, powerfull and light. The E4 caliper uses 4x16mm phenolic pistons to give more usable power.
