New Union Clipless Pedal Range from Hope

New Union Clipless Pedal Range from Hope

Hope (United Kingdom) - Press Release: At Hope we produce products for the rider. This means developing the best components, not only for the extremes of downhill or EWS, but also for the punishing environment of XC racing and endurance riding. Here, balancing strength, weight and performance is key and we have now applied all our years of expertise into the clipless pedal: The Union.

Our new mechanism design aims to provide easy pedal entry combined with secure cleat holding and positive release characteristics. The dual clip mechanism means the effort required to clip in is reduced, giving a wider cleat acceptance angle. Cleat release is driven off fixed pins for positive and consistent release.

Each pedal body is designed to maximise the contact between shoe/cleat and pedal body for increased stability and power transfer. The contact area combines cleat to stop plate contact and shoe sole to pedal body contact to give a super solid under foot feel.

The Hope mechanism uses a specific cleat and is not cross compatible with other systems.
