    Wiggle deal on Hope pro 2 evo wheels

    I just thought I would post what I think is a great deal on Hope Pro 2 evo wheels from Wiggle. I purchased the set for $332.40 as they are 21% off right now and use code 10-off for an extra 10% off.

    Thanks for the heads up. Just picked up some Fulcrum Red Power 29XL for $244 shipped. Lowest price found by FAR.

    Next time you order from across the pond check with your bank or credit union about paying in their currency . My credit union charges 1% of the sale but saves me an extra 7-9% depending on the bike shop.

    The code only works on orders over 100 British Pounds.

    Great wheels. Handmade in Italy. I got them two weeks ago.However I regret getting Hope Pro 2 Evo wheels. I did not expect the freehub to be so weak.

    How do you like them? I've only had Alu spokes on my road bike but these seem beefy enough.

    Can you define 'weak' please?

    I don't see many reliability issues on Hope hubs, if you're blowing up freehubs it might be worth contacting Hope about it.

    I ordered one of the flow front wheels. They come with QR and 20mm adapters, and I need 15mm. So, if anyone's in the same boat and ordered one of the lighter rims, but needs 20mm then pm me and let's trade.

    Hi Fix,

    I was referring to the durability of a freehub body. It is very weak/fragile. After 100 miles on asphalt with Sram PG-990 it looks bad. I am 6'1" and weigh 164 pounds.The wheels roll smooth and bearings seem to be good but there are some other minor issues. Firstly, the rim tape is of poor quality. Secondly, the wheels came with no skewers. Thirdly, a piece of metal came loose inside the rim. It is used during the assembly and was not secured properly. I contacted Hope and they said to use some super glue. I understand it can be fixed but I paid almost $400 for these wheels so I would expect a better quality. I will see how they hold up after 1000 miles and pass judgement.

    Thank you.

    +1 on the freehub body. Any T6 freehub with 15 degrees of engagement is going to have this problem, not just hopes. Mine got chewed up because I was stupid, my cassette had a steel carrier but I know the pg-990 has an alloy carrier so I am suprised yours got chewed already.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I ordered on Wednesday and received them today. Now that's what I call expedited shipping!!

    Let me guess, Mavic EX721 rims?

    I had the same thing happen on my Hope Pro 2/EX721 wheel combo that I bought from wiggle last year. Quick search online yielded the same result, took the tape off and applied some Crazy Glue, and it was fixed. Never rattled again, with lots of abusive riding.
    And it turns out it's a common thing with at least Mavic rims.

    As for the quality, this season I'm on Sun-Ringle Charger Expert 29er wheelset that I paid $300 for, came with skewers, complete Stan's kit to go tubeless, tape already applied and I'm loving them. For my riding, I see no difference in quality between the two to be honest with you and I paid $400+ for my Hopes. And the Sun-Ringle freehub is almost as loud as the Hope, one thing I didn't want to give up lol.

    No, Stan's Crest. I heard good things about those Charger wheels.

    Wow, ordered on the 25th, delivered in Canada on the 30th. And I didn't pay the expedited fee.
    I'll order again from them.
