This is what we want to see. A no-frills banger of vid that just shows some wicked riding on some ace looking trails on Hope’s new bike.

Helvellyn, Whinlatter trail centre, the Borrowdale Bashing, some classic Pass Storming sections and plenty of locals-only and after-hours spots… this video will have you plotting your trip up the M6 ASAP!

If the new Hope HB.160 – not to mention the Hope Hoop wheels – can survive the sheer banging aggro over-shoots and deliberate casings of Mr Brayton then you can rest assured it’s one tough bike.

It’s a bold but impressive move by Hope to release this video with its ‘raw’ soundtrack. We can imagine lesser bikes, brakes and wheels making all sorts of nasty, worrying noises when being ridden as hard and wild as Brayton is doing here.

OMG we want to ride Lakeland mountains NOW!
