Venhill upgrade Tracer 700 controls
Sunday, 29th April 2018
A direct swap for the factory-fitted versions, the Venhill Featherlight-specification throttle and clutch cables offer improved performance and durability, yet require less maintenance than the original equipment. Made in the UK using marine-grade stainless steel inner wire that runs through a teflon liner for minimum friction and light action, feel and control are enhanced, while pressure on the hands is reduced, especially in stop start traffic and during long rides. Each cable is ‘bird-caged' – a special process applied to the end of the inner cable wire, which allows solder to penetrate the weave of the cable, making the bond with the nipple much stronger. The teflon lining also removes the need for lubrication. Venhill Powerhose Plus braided brake lines feature a DuPont® Teflon® core, which is resistant to heat, softening, expansion and loss of shape, delivering more efficient fluid flow to the callipers, and increased braking force compared to the originals. Stainless steel braid is wrapped around the core, to prevent further pressure expansion. All Venhill braided brake hoses exceed American DOT and German TUV requirements, and, for further peace of mind, every hose that leaves their UK factory is pressure tested to 1500psi.
