    Hub weights...Syncros, wtb, Hope pro 2 Evo weights

    So I'm rebuilding a set of DH wheels. Wanted to post this up for reference in case someone does a search someday.

    I'm not sure of the model Syncros hub, maybe a guru can help out.

    Hub weights...Syncros, wtb, Hope pro 2 Evo weights-imageuploadedbytapatalk1343216389.439174.jpg

    Hope Pro 2 EVO 150mm rear 320g
    Syncros ??? 150mm rear (pictured) 534g
    Hope Pro 2 EVO front 177g
    WTB super duty front hub 184g

    WTB 2.0 straight gauge spokes x 32 = 212g
    DT 2.0/1.8 DB spokes x 32 = 186g

    The Hopes are some of the lighter hubs out there, and with no sacrifice in durability or quality. I love my Hopes.

    indeed. I have read very good things. Figured the Syncros probably was a bit heavier, but I was shocked and pleasantly surprised to drop 1/2 lb off the rear wheel for $200.

    Hopes are good, but sometimes, there problems with internals.
    As you are from US (if NJ stands for New Jersey) check WTB, both front and rear. They are just a little bit heavier that Hopes, but I think much cheaper.

    My friend has that hub. Really nice. Except he does have a little play in it. Not a huge deal though. I love the buzz.
