Female brake hose ends with either 1/8 or 1/4 BSP thread. The 1/8 BSP threads can be supplied qwith eith the BSP seat or smiths flat seat option supplied complete with socket and brass olive for easy assembly on our -3 or -4 stainless braided smooth bore Teflon hose.
The orientation of both the tube and forged angled female fittings is fixed once assembled.
Hoses assembled from these components offer significant advantages over standard automotive flexible brake hoses manufactured from fabric reinforced synthetic rubber. The high line pressures generated by competition braking systems means that a significant proportion of the available brake pedal travel can be used up in expanding the flexible brake hoses leaving insufficient remaining pedal travel for safe braking. Our Stainless braided extruded Teflon hose solves this problem, the stiffness of the Teflon liner combined with the tightly woven high tensile stainless steel outer braid eliminates the line swell, dramatically increasing the firmness and feel of the brake pedal which also allows the drivers to modulate the brakes more efficiently. Improved abrasion resistance and increased temperature capacity are secondary advantages.
We stock a large range of alternative re-useable hose ends allowing almost any configuration of hose to be quickly and easily assembled using only hand tools.
