Wheels built around bombproof Hope Pro 4 hubs, machine built then hand finished in Barnoldswick using no nonsense, standard J-bend Sapim Race Stainless Steel spokes and silver brass nipples.
The wheels are available with a choice of Fortus rims, from 23 mm up to 35 mm internal width. Hub options include every mountain bike size we've ever heard of. (NB Our images show Shimano HG freehubs).
The 30W rim option is our best-selling Hope option, if you ride a modern enduro or trail bike using 2.4"-2.8" tyres this is probably the size you need. We see the Fortus 30W as a comparable rim to the DT Swiss EX 511, up to enduro riding on the burly DH end of things.
