The floating brake rotor idea combines the robustness and temperature management of steel pad-contact surface, with the lightness of aluminium. With Hope’s Road CL design, a steel braking surface is riveted to an aluminium central carrier.
Hope has engineered the steel outer part of this Road CL road brake rotor with a round edge. A series of ventilation holes allow for heat dissipation, if you require powerful braking inputs, on a long descent.
The Road CL-series rotor also features an aluminium carrier, with a centre-lock spline fitment in the middle. This aluminium part of the Hope Road CL reduces rotation mass, which is part of the appeal for a floating brake rotor design.
Precision is a crucial aspect of quality disc brake manufacturing. If the manufacturing tolerances are slightly misaligned, you can have annoying brake rub, which increases mechanical drag. To avoid this, Hope uses a sophisticated laser-cutting process for its brake rotors, to achieve the best possible specification control in final production.
The Hope Road CL uses a centre-lock mounting interface, reducing the need for traditional bolts, which would occasionally need to be checked for correct fastening.
