Tech 4 lever updates
Perhaps the biggest update to the Tech 4 lever is a boost in power thanks to an increase in the overall leverage between the lever blade and the brake pad. According to Hope, this results in a 30% increase in braking power for a given force at the lever. This is achieved through both higher mechanical leverage through a change in lever blade geometry and a different hydraulic ratio thanks to a smaller diameter master cylinder. Hope claims the lever geometry offers “a linear relationship between brake pressure and lever force making it easy and intuitive to control the power”.
New seals are designed to reduce friction in the hydraulic system; along with roller bearings in the lever pivot which allow for a lighter return spring, this makes it easier and less fatiguing when using the brakes repeatedly on long descents. The Tech 4 also has a hinged clamp to reduce weight compared to the Tech 4, a lower stack height reservoir and “improved shifter integration” with 30° of angle adjustment.
What hasn’t changed? The levers retain the handy bite point and reach adjust dials and they’re still side-specific, so you’ll have to swap hoses if you’re from a country where they run their brakes on the wrong side. Hope leave both hoses uncut (1.6 m long) so you’ll have to trim one of them down no matter how you run your brakes.
Meanwhile, Hope’s four-piston E4 and V4 callipers have been updated to house hybrid pistons, made of stainless steel with a phenolic insert, rather than being entirely made of phenolic resin (a much softer material). According to Hope, this “allows for smoother movement and less maintenance, while still being able to manage high temperatures without heat transfer during extreme use.” For what it’s worth, the SRAM Guide Ultimate used metallic pistons, and in my experience, they were far smoother and more consistent than the standard Guide RSC of the time.
All Tech 4 brakes, no matter the caliper style, will now come with Hope’s new Racing brake pads. These organic compound pads are designed for minimal bed-in time and maximum power (at the expense of lifespan). For more on how Hope’s pad compounds compare, click here.

Bigger, grippier, lighter and as tough as ever. The Penthouse Flat MK5 pedal is here!
After two years of development and testing the MK5 Penthouse Flat is here. Retaining our signature toughness, the MK5 is the lightest and grippiest Burgtec pedal to date. We did this by not only increasing the size of the pedal platform, but also how concave it is alongside reducing the diameter of the pins and adding the most wear resistant internals on the market. From the outside to the inside, we’ve sweated the details of the MK5 to bring you the ultimate flat pedal.
