UK manufactured Carbon seat post, light enough for Road and XC use and strong enough for DH.
Over the last ten years bicycle components have been at the centre of the battle between lightness, stiffness and strength. Carbon has been the material of choice to satisfy these demands. Whilst Hope has traditionally focused on CNC machined components we felt the time was right to expand our quality product range to include carbon composites. Hope Tech's move into the carbon market is totally consistent with Hope’s approach – made in UK. Hope Tech didn’t rush it! It has taken time to bring in-house, and hone, a new set of skills – ably assisted by leading composites industry professionals and U.K. based materials and equipment suppliers.
- Each seat-post employs 24 individual ‘plies’ of carbon, pre-impregnated with a highly toughened epoxy resin system, designed to ensure a safe and rugged unit.
- The bulk of the laminate comprises Unidirectional T700 fibre – the highest strength Standard Modulus fibre available. (Unidirectional fibres provide the maximum tensile strength and stiffness with minimum weight.)
- This is combined with strategically positioned plies of 3K twill woven fabric, adding hoop strength to resist clamping forces and mitigating failure mode in the event of serious crash damage.
- The 1K 2x2 twill weave fabric outer ply, also contributes in this respect together with a super smooth finish and striking visual aesthetic.
Hope Tech Key Features:
- 100% designed, tested and manufactured in Barnoldswick, England
- High strength carbon fibre construction with aircraft grade aluminium seat rail clamps
- Smooth internal surface finish removes any unnecessary resin rich areas to minimise weight
- Varying wall sections to optimise weight and areas of high stress concentrations
- Same ultra-fine seat rail adjustment as tried and proven on our previous ‘Eternity Seatpost’
- Available in Ø27.2mm x 350mm, Ø30.9mm x 400mm and Ø31.6mm x 400mm
