2019 Hope HB.160

Designed, tested and manufactured in Barnoldswick, UK.
Ridden and raced all over the world.

Overview HB.160 - 2019

The HB.160 was our first offering in the bike world. Built from the ground up, it utilises our proven engineering knowledge to create a bike that is unique, distinctive and is Hope.

This bike is as much at home slung on your back, scaling a Lake District peak as it is on the local trail centre for a Sunday morning blast with your mates.

We created this bike to be able to tackle the type of riding we love – technical Switchbacks of Lakeland epics, muddy steeps of the Tweed Valley or the slatey single tracks of Coed-y-Brenin, our bike can tackle them all. It will even thrive on that week in the Alps you’ve been planning for years but never got around to doing.

With 160mm of travel and a pedal efficient linkage, it inspires you to make the most of any trail you point it down. And the best bit? It’s been designed and  handmade with passion at our factory in Barnoldswick, UK by our dedicated team of carbon technicians and CNC machinists.


- Hand laid carbon fibre monocoque front triangle
- Inspired geometry designed for UK riding
- Unique bonded rear triangle
- Hope specific 130 hub spacing utilising a 17mm thru axle
- Radial mounting rear brake
- Seven anodised colour options
- Full protection pack to cover areas prone to wear
- Custom tuned rear shock to get the best from
- the linkage design
- Lifetime warranty on frameset and frame bearings
- Custom HB.160 Etching on hubs and top caps
- Weight: 31lbs/14kgs (Large)


2019 sees the introduction of some fresh changes to the HB.160. We’ve kept some of the unique feature’s customers have come to love and applied some of the feedback received from our dealers to implement an updated spec. Not only that, we’ve chosen some logical upgrade packages to allow customers to further customise their HB.160.

The 2019 model sees a full SRAM XO1 Eagle groupset introduced, along with a full Factory Fox set up for suspension and dropper seat post. Along with Maxxis High roller 2 tyres, the HB continues to have a full range of Hope components including brakes and handlebars.



Having sampled several carbon rims, we settled on the Santa Cruz Reserve rims for a number of reasons – Solid ride feel yet still very compliant and a lifetime warranty.

The wheels are built here at Hope on whichever hub colour you choose with warranty issues handled via ourselves. Carbon wheels are available to buy with bikes and separately to existing HB customers- strictly for the HB.160 only.

*(When bought with a bike )


In response to feedback, we have added another suspension option, further opening up customisation options.

We can offer Ohlins new RXF 36 Trail fork and their TTX22 Coil shock for £50 upgrade fee.

With a totally new damper, the new RXF Trail fork has come up trumps on tests. The bonus of this fork is that their coil fork damper can be swapped easily (available from Ohlins)

The TTX22 Coil allows for efficient pedalling and ultimate damping on the trail.

Due to dimensions, the air shock is not available.


Want that extra confidence to plough through that rough bit of trail? Looking for a shock to fit and forget and get that same feeling every time you ride your HB?

If you tick all those boxes, consider fitting the super reliable Fox DH X2 Coil shock. A 475 springs will come as standard


Feedback from dealers has suggested that several HB owners have requested decal kits to fit Fork, Shock and Rims.

We have taken the liberty of creating a custom HB.160 decal package to match all seven colour options plus a special yellow set to match the Ohlins suspension package.

Decal kits will RRP at £30 and will sent out with each order for the dealer to fit.

Hope Crankset package - £285
