Hope's Fortus 26 is the optimum spec wheelset for fast trail and all-mountain bikes. The 26mm internal width is the sweet spot for tyres of widths 2.25" - 2.5" making this the wise choice for the majority of riders.

The super-tough Fortus 26 rim is paired with the apocalypse proof Pro 5 hub. Outstanding performance, reliability and extremely easy to maintain.

Wheel can be set up with tubes or tubeless. Tape and valve for tubeless set up is included.

Without doubt one of the best trail wheel sets on the market and a firm Biketart favourite.

Please note - All Hope Pro 5 wheels that are not showing as 'In Stock' will be made to order from Hope. This is usually 10-14 days although build times can be affected at busy times of the year. Contact us at if you need to discuss build times.
