Motorcycle brake lines
Upgrading your front and rear motorcycle hydraulic brake lines can have a dramatic effect on your braking performance; increasing the power transmitted to the calipers, and improving feel and feedback so you have better control.
Unlike many aftermarket performance braided brake hoses, Venhill Powerhose Plus braided brake lines feature a DuPont® Teflon® core, which offers much greater resistance to heat compared to cheaper Nylon lined versions. The Teflon® core not only prevents softening, expansion and loss of shape, but is also constructed with a consistent internal diameter and a smooth bore, to offer more efficient fluid flow too.
A stainless steel braid is wrapped around the core, which prevents further pressure expansion and helps protect the core against stones and road debris, and accident damage. All Venhill braided hoses use a marine grade stainless steel braid, which is more resistant to corrosion than the ‘standard’ grade used on many other brands, prolonging the life of the hose. The braid is then covered with an extruded PVC jacket to help prevent wear and deterioration due to sunlight, chemicals and movement. It is bonded to the braid to prevent the ingress of water, road salt and debris.
Venhill hoses also use threaded swivel fittings, so the hose can be positioned with zero twist. Many other lines offer no banjo adjustment at all, or require removal and the use of a special tool to rotate the banjo before re-installation. Venhill machine their own banjo fittings and dome-headed banjo bolts to ensure proper fitment and a consistent, quality finish. All Venhill braided brake hoses exceed American DOT and German TUV requirements, and are manufactured in the UK from top quality materials to offer high performance, reliability and long life.
Venhill hoses are used, amongst many others, by DRT Kawasaki in MXGP. For further peace of mind, every hose that leaves the Venhill factory is pressure tested to 1500psi, and every 30 days random hoses are pressure tested up to 10,000psi; a stress test of Venhill’s own manufacturing quality.
Venhill Powerhose Plus braided brake lines are available in a wide selection of colors: Black | Clear | Orange | Red | Blue | White | Carbon | Green | Purple | Solid Blue | Translucent Red | Yellow. Customers can choose matching or contrasting colours for the rigid sections of each hose too.
