in Customer Rewards when you buy this item today

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

Your Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up; ready for collection via Click & Collect or despatch to you — it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Hope HB916 GX Mountain Bike 2023 Carbon




The Hope HB916 Mountain Bike is their new 160mm rear travel bike. It would be wrong to assume the HB916 is a successor to the original HB160 bike as its DNA is very different and so should be treated as a whole new bike.

The HB916 bike has been designed with Enduro Racing in mind, taking into account its wide variety of terrains and formats. Engineered so a racer can be fast not only on a quick 2 min stage but also on a 20 min mega stage on terrain varying from Scottish Moors to Alpine descents.

Hopes focus was on making the bike to be efficient, balanced, predictable, and easy to ride to save racers precious energy on long day races, enabling them to focus and make the difference when it matters the most.

The frame is produced in house at their Barnoldswick factory. The front triangle is constructed in one piece while the chain and seat stays are a hybrid construction of aluminium and carbon allowing us to keep pivot bearings fitted into aluminium and spaced as wide as possible to increase bearing life. The frame features internal cable routing, frame rubber protection and down tube storage which they like to call a ‘Butty Box’ in a typical northern way. Of course, the precious water bottle will fit inside the front triangle too.

We'll Be In Touch!

Hope have made this bike available with the option of 3 different shocks (2022 Ohlins TTX22M Coil /TT Air TM or 2023 Fox DHX2 Coil/Float X2 Air) 2 Fork Options (2022 Ohlins RFX38 AIR or 2023 Fox 38 Float Factory Series) and a whole host of different coloured parts. Once you order the frame we will contact you to confirm what colours, shock and fork you would like it to come with.

Sizing Information

The frame comes in four different sizes called H1 (smallest) to H4 (largest).
The geometry numbers are designed around speed and stability with generous reach, slack head angle, long wheelbase while still keeping the bike active and reactive.

A steep effective seat tube (approx. 78°) provides a good pedalling position and comfortable effective top tube length. Chainstay length remains reasonably short so when combined with the rearward axle path helps to keep the rear centre length in check.

The ample reach gives the rider plenty of room in the attack position. By swapping the upper headset cup it is also possible to adjust the head angle from 64° down to 63.2°. The seatstay based flip chip allows the bike to be used as a Mullet setup whilst maintaining its geometry as much as possible as the main angles remain unchanged.

The suspension kinematic design breaks away from the architecture of our previous bikes by using a mid-high pivot design and concentric rear pivot.

The high pivot creates a rearward axle path which, on a long travel bike, provides better bump absorption and increases traction giving that “magic carpet” feel. Using a chain idler pulley counteracts any increased pedal kickback, the major drawback of a high pivot design, and allows us to fine tune the anti-squat characteristics.

The rear axle path isn’t rearward throughout the full 160mm of travel like you might find on higher pivot bikes, this gives less variation of the rear centre length keeping the bike geometry balanced. A linear leverage curve provides 26% of progression making the bike suitable for use with coil or air shocks.
