Hope Levers are ready to rock!



Look at us getting all fancy with our camera Eh! It took me about 6000 shots but here is a good close up on our style and lever design. That underside lip is for your finger kind of like a mini escape route if you slam the brakes to the bar.

These cross over to Hopes MINI/MR/M6 models and are available at any of our distributors!


We also notched the top side of this lever shaving a gram a pair and giving us an excuse to Lazer Etch our logo underside for a cleaner look.


They look pretty but there is a lot of work that goes into making a lever come to life! Here was our first test run with a simple Tombstone set up. You can tell I was a little excited seeing it fire up!

In this video you can see our Mori's robotic pallet system in work and our production Tombstone being loaded into the machine for mass production.

This video is just cool to watch, or it is really lame if you are not into CNC and hate it when I talk about them lol.

So much win and awesomeness. I love videos of CNC stuff. It gets me all excited for a unknown reason, but still rad as fuck! I request more! You are always up to no good, and this should be something you do more often! VIDEOS OF CNC madness!

Any thoughts for Magura Louise Freeride or Gustav levers?

Straitline Components said...

Magura we passed on for a few reasons. A lot of the models we design for can cross over to the brands other models ie. Avid Jusicy lever crosses over t oa Juicy 3/5/7 adn we tweaked ti to also fit to a Ultimate/carbon models.

So the Magura was not of interest to us as we would have to make 4 levers to meet the markets needs. Plus our distributors never really supported the brand so for the time being we passed but never say never.

Dotca just double click any of the you tube videos and you can go over all my videos. I get bored of machine vids but will soon throw a camera inside for live viewing.

does these hope levers are compatible with the 2005/2006 mono M4 master cylinder ?
or only the "new" mono M4 2008 one

Straitline Components said...

Hey Luc, sorry for taking forever to respond. Normally no they won't cross over but we made a clever mod to the interface and ours will fit both!

so will these fit the MOTO V2 master cylinder?

These levers are awesome for 1 or 2 finger breaking. Considering this is much much more appreciated by FR/DH riders, it would be nice to maybe try making just FR/DH lever models of the Magura brakes. Just a vote wanting straitline levers to fit magura louise.
