Hope Tech is launching their new Thru Axles along with updates on their finishing kits at this year’s Eurobike. The new front and rear Thru Axles offer another option for UDH-equipped bikes. After many years, in tandem with the release of the new Thru Axles, Hope thought it was time to refresh and release updated finishing kits as well.

With the wide use of UDH Hope thought it was time to offer the Hope Rear Thru Axle. And, alongside the rear, there is a matching front.

Finishing kits are usually the small, often, blingy bike bits that pull a build together. And after quite a few years, Hope thought it was time to update several of their finishing kit options.

They state that “they didn;t reinvent the wheel, ” but just updated the looks of each seat clamp and doctors (Head, Space, and Grip). They wanted us to tell you that yes, they are still all made right there in their Barnoldswick factory.

Will the headset doctors now be slim enough to work with carbon steerer plugs?
