Hope Floating Disc Brake Rotors
As with everything else that Hope produces, there is a high amount of attention to detail and quality assurance in these Floating Rotors. Laser cut from a sheet of steel and riveted to an aluminium central carrier. To help compensate for thermal expansion, they self centre through constant braking. They have been designed with a wider braking surface for compatibility with other brakes.

Awesome brake Upgrade.
by Cameron Hickling
Upgraded from stock 160mm rotors up to these in 180mm. Just trail riding has been great, I've moved from two down to one finger on my brakes and experiencing less arm pump and completely removed brake fade on steep downs. Note that I did need to file my shimano calipers a little to prevent interference with the floating rivets. I believe this effects pre-2016 shimano and SRAM calipers. But do your own research.
Pimping my ride.
Bought the 203 & 180mm cause I liked the look.
The 180mm fitted no worries but going from a 200mm rotor to the 203mm you need to buy the adaptor bracket to suit. I should have researched better.
Done now and I still think they look good. Bit early to say if anymore stopping power.
They certainly look great on the bike however the finish of the rotor pad surface is a little rough in comparison to say a sram rotor. But I feel the braking has improved with guide R’s
Great rotor, looks the business and adds that extra customisation you need to tackle those techy downhill sections.

As always with hope, the quality of these is top notch. They run true, feel solid and look the part. Having used them for several rides now, the performance is also what you'd expect; they've staying in alignment & run well. My only gripe is from the install. These were a direct replacement for RT-76 rotors with Saint M810's. The rivet connection between the rotor edge and spider is ever-so-slightly wider than the RT-76, which meant it just caught the edge of the rotor on each rivet. I've had to file back the edge of the caliper about 1/5mm to allow it to spin freely without clicking & still sit centered in the caliper. Probably a quirk of that combination, but something to be aware of.
