Hope’s Pro3 hubs are the highlight here.

Famously bombproof tech, with a very loud freehub buzz that will see you through rain or shine.

Although the hubs look stealth, they sound anything but, making them a bad choice for the shy and retiring rider.

However, this combination of spoke, hub and rim works so well that I couldn’t believe they cost so much less than nearly all the others here.

Verdict

They might not be custom like Harry's, but they're a very popular and reliable set of wheels that should suit a lot of different riders. And although they don't quite match the levels of speed and fun of the Fulcrums, they come very close.
