The HB916 bike is Hope's 160mm rear travel bike. It would be wrong to assume the HB916 is a successor to the original HB160 bike as its DNA is very different and so should be treated as a whole new bike.
The HB916 bike has been designed with Enduro Racing in mind, taking into account its wide variety of terrains and formats. Engineered so a racer can be fast not only on a quick 2 min stage but also on a 20 min mega stage on terrain varying from Scottish Moors to Alpine descents.
Their focus was on making the bike to be efficient, balanced, predictable, and easy to ride to save racers precious energy on long day races, enabling them to focus and make the difference when it matters the most.
