Hope pro 3 - 8 speed cassette compatibility

I want a new set of wheels for my winter training bike and I'm considering a set of open pros on pro 3 hubs.

Will an 8 speed cassette fit on these hubs? As Hopes website states they are 9/10 speed compatible, but no mention of 8 speed.

    Yep, should be fine. I have a set of Pro 3s on one of my mountain bikes, running an 8 speed XT drivetrain quite happily.

    8 and 9 speed shimano patten cassettes are the same width.

    definitely works, I had 8 speed on mine for a while with no problems.
