Strengths:    Work Great.
Look Great.
Bleed Easy.

Weaknesses:    Expensive but I found them for $400 for a set.

Bottom Line:   
Overall, very nice brakes. The machining is very cool looking. The black anodize finish is very tough. They work almost flawlessly. The pads drag a tiny bit. The RaceX2 light rotors are a bit thin. I like Avid CSG3s for these.

Strengths:    After 7 years on Avid juicy and them being now obsolete it was time for a change. No more adjustment for the sake of it time for simple and reliable. The race x2 is as good as it gets for XC no problems and I don't expect any.
So simple to bleed unlike the other brands avid and formula. Non of that have got it right on the first run.

Weaknesses:    Naming convention you could end up with ugly tech leaver with lots of useless knobs on.

Bottom Line:   
keep it simple!

Strengths:    Light, feel and power. Cool looks when matched with hope pro 2 hubs & floating 160 rotors. Easy set up just ride. They stop in the wet very stylish and rare compared to avid etc.

Weaknesses:    need to come with the match maker clamps.

Bottom Line:   
Buy these if you want something different that just works! no set up issues fit and ride.

Hope race evo x2 VS new XTR race

Looking at new brakes for a hardtail. I've got XT trails on my current bike, I like them quite a bit, if i have to complain its that the initial bite is a little touchy and they feel vague deeper in the travel. but those are a HUGE improvement over the avids i had before. My priorities are.. 1. ... Read More »

Hope EVO Race X2 on a Scalpel?

I want to put some Hope EVO Race X2s on my 2012 Cannondale Scalpel 29er? The bike currently has the stock Avid XO brakes with 180mm rotor front and 160mm rotor in the rear. I'm wondering if anyone has made a similar swap. I think the rear will be a bolt on swap. I've been told a J 183 mm I.S. to ... Read More »

Hope Stealth Race EVO X2 feedback

I'm in the market for a set of stronger brakes. I've ridden nothing but Avid since I started mountain biking again in 2008. Since that time I've ridden Juicy Ultimates, Elixer CR, Gen 1 XX, 2013 XO and currently have 2013 XX. They all had similar characteristics in the way they feel. Excellent modul ... Read More »

Hope Race Evo X2

Does anyone have anytime on these? I am huge Hope fan (currently have the V4 on my Chilcotin). I need a good trail brake, but really want to keep the weight down. I would run a 183/160 combo. Any complaints about power? I currently am running 2013 Avid XX 180/160.Read More »
