I noticed Universal Cycles (and QBP) differentiate between 2009 and 2010 versions of the Hope Tech V2s and M4s. The only visual difference I can see is the design on the reservoir cover. Are there any other differences?

Corect the name of the topic: 2009 vs. 2010 Hope brakes".
Thank you. I don't know how I screwed that one up.

BTW, I heard from Hope. They told me the difference is that the caliper is slimmed down and slightly lighter on the 2010s.

Great, so someone at Hope doesn't know what they're talking about. The email I received regarding the difference in the 2009 and 2010's, verbatim, is: "Just etching on the caps and caliper." This came from Phil Dean at Hope. Either the response I received is wrong or the one you received is wrong.

And I just ordered some 2009 Tech M4's that arrive on Tuesday.

V2

They slimmed down the weight of the caliper on the V2. the Caliper looks a lot more like the x2 caliper in that the material around the outboard piston is taken off quite a bit. The 09 V2 caliper was flush on the outboard piston.

They also made the bleed nipple a little different.
