    Hope Race Evo M4?

    Curious if anyone has any experience with these? It's the race lever with the m4 caliper.

    I've used the race X2 - and found the power to be a bit lacking. These obviously won't be as light, but might be a nice option.

    here's a link:

    The M4 caliper will increase your power without too much weigh addition. You could also try larger diameter rotors on your existing X2 calipers.

    I've got 'em on my 29er AM HT with 180mm fixed rotors front and back... loving the power and modulation and actually could drop to a 160mm disc on the back, me being fairly whippet-ish.

    Hope themselves say X2 calipers shouldn't be used with >180mm rotors... but if one is finding power lacking upfront, no problem to run a mixed pair of Race M4s up front with Race X2s out back.
