I’ve checked out the newest version of Pelago Hanko. The most notorious changes compared to my 2017 model is glossy finish and hydraulic disc brakes. The older model has a great powder coating paint, which looks awesome and is less prone to scratching. In terms of paint, I think it’s a downgrade, but I wonder why they made this decision. Hydraulic brakes are awesome — the levers work smooth and with little pressure. I like that.
