Ask a Question

Hope Fortus 30W Factory Mountain Bike Wheels. 

Hope Pro 4 hubs built into Hope Fortus 30W wide profile Enduro and downhill rims.

Customer Update 01.08.21 

Hope are still building Fortus wheels but there is a significant backlog. Currently wheels are taking at least 6 weeks to come through from the Factory due to reduced staffing. Please only order if you are happy to wait 6-8 weeks for your wheels. We cannot give refunds for cancelled orders as they are all custom. For those that do order, we appreciate your business and will get your wheels to you as promptly as possible. Hope have confirmed they have plenty of rims to satisfy demand and hub production is constant. You will get your wheels but you'll have to wait in line for delivery. Thanks for your patience.

Available in 26", 27.5" and 29", the Fortus 30W is supplied by Moonglu with tubeless tape and tubeless valves. Choose from 6 hubs colours, 3 freehub body options and BOOST or non Boost hubs. 35mm external diameter, 30mm internal, optimized for 2.4-2.8" tyres.

Further Information

Build time

These wheels are factory ordered from Hope. With hub colours, rim diameters and frame dimensions, there are too many combinations for us to stock. When we receive an order we will place an immediate order with Hope. Once they arrive at Moonglu we will check them over, check the spoke tension, fit the tubeless tape and valves and dispatch them straight away. Although we'd like this process to be seamless, it may take 3-4 weeks for delivery. 

Wheel Builder's Comments

Hope factory built wheels have always been popular and are a great upgrade wheel. Their Fortus wheels take this to the next level with wider rim profiles keeping their products on the curve of modern mountain bike trends. Our wheel building expert will check these wheels prior to dispatch or collection to make sure the spoke tension is even and balanced across the wheel.

Ask a Question
  • What’s the waiting time for a hope wheel set at the moment please?


    Thanks for the message. The current waiting time for Fortus 30W is still 6 weeks. It has been like this for the past year and whilst it's not ideal we have continued to take orders and supply riders without letting anyone down. 

    I hope this helps. If you decide to order from us then we'll get the order to Hope straight away and get the wheels to you as soon as possible. 

    Many thanks

  • Hi, rear hubs just blown and thinking of just getting a full new wheelset. Just wondering what the turn around and price would be on fortus 30's in 29, boost front and rear on shimano 12speed? Also, discs fitted if possible. Thanks


    Good morning, many thanks for your message. 

    Delivery time of Fortus wheels is still 4-6 weeks. I'd recommend ordering as soon as you can and we will be able to get them to you before Christmas. 

    If you want discs fitting drop me a line after you have ordered the wheels and we can sort that out. 

    Many thanks

  • Hi is it possible to order the rear wheel Hope Fortus 30W in boost sizing 148 x 12 but with an adaptor to change to 141QR think it may be HUB 238 conversion kit?


    Thanks for the message. It is possible to specify that wheel option, we have done it a few times. I'll make an adjustment to our website tonight to allow direct ordering. 

    Many thanks

  • Hello peeps, how quickly can you get a set of hope Fortus 30 wheels out, given the odd time we are currently living in


    Good evening, many thanks for the message. The current waiting time for Fortus wheels is 2 weeks from order. Hope are operating with limited staff and they're dealing with excessive wheel orders. 

    We are receiving orders through in a timely manner but that's the best we can do at the moment. 

    Kind Regards
    For Moonglu

  • Is it possible to order a set of wheels with mixed sizes, to fit to a Singular 69er frameset. I would want a Fortus 26 on Pro 4 135x10 Shimano 11 speed rear and a Fortus 26 on Pro 4 15x100 front. Is it possible to order this combination.


    Good morning, many thanks for your message. 

    We can supply that wheelset for you. There is the option on our website to buy individual wheels. 


    Hope are on a 2 week turnaround for wheels currently. 

    Many thanks

    Neil @ Moonglu

  • Any idea when you will be getting fortus 30 27.5 wheels sets back in for orders ?


    I have reset the website. They are available to order from Hope but delivery is slower at this moment. Allow 2 weeks from time of order. 

    Many thanks

    Neil @ Moonglu

  • Is it possible to purchase these with hubs suitable for centerlock brake discs? If not, are there adapters available? Thank you


    Thanks for your message. The Hope Fortus wheels are all built onto Pro 4 hubs meaning they are only available in a 6 bolt disc rotor fitting. If you have centrelock rotors already the is no adapter for this. If you want the Fortus wheels you would also have to change to 6 bolt rotors. 

    Many Thanks

  • Hi I'm looking at the hope Fortus 30 wheels, but I'm not quite sure what freehub body I would need. I currently have a SRAM NX freehub (PG 1130). I'm guessing I would need the steel option? Thanks, Tom

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for your message. For that cassette you will need to select either the Shimano/SRAM 10/11 Speed Alloy or Steel Freehub options, not the XD drive. 

    I hope this helps, let me know if you have any problems.

    Many Thanks
