Performance driving requires firm, consistent brake pedal feel, and brakes that can be precisely modulated when you’re pushing your vehicle to the limit, and you can’t get that responsiveness with stock rubber brake hoses. Factory hoses are fine for everyday cruising, but expand too much when you’re braking at the edge, leaving you with a mushy pedal feel. Upgrade your brake system to braided stainless steel for a dramatic improvement in pedal feel. We also have everything else needed to complete your performance brake hydraulic system including brake lines and a large selection of fittings.
When you’re driving at speed things happen fast and you need brakes that will instantly respond to avoid a crash. Hydraulic pressure that’s wasted expanding rubber brake hoses instead of doing the more important work of applying caliper pistons and brake pads will result in longer stopping distances. This condition gets even worse when original equipment fabric reinforced rubber hoses get soft and swell with age. Our performance brake hoses are constructed from PTFE (Teflon®) tubing covered by woven stainless steel braid. They’ve been tested at pressures far greater than the average master cylinder can exert, so you can be assured that all the hydraulic pressure your brake system develops will go to apply the caliper pistons and nothing else.
Braided stainless steel hoses are also much tougher than their rubber counterparts, and better able to resist impacts and abrasions, so they’re perfect for severe duty conditions like off-roading. And braided steel hoses have the high-tech, high-performance look that will set off your machine. It’s easy to get this performance, durability, and appearance upgrade no matter what you drive. We have application specific kits for most cars, trucks, and SUVs. The hoses in these kits are the proper length and have the right fittings to connect right into your system, without the need for any fabrication. These hoses are constructed in lengths to accommodate standard suspension travel, but what do you do if that suspension travel has been changed?
