Stainless Steel brake line
Demanding enthusiasts have known for a long time that stainless steel braided brake lines are an inexpensive way to increase their vehicles’ braking performance. But the fact is that any driver can benefit from a better performing brake system, and stainless steel braided brake lines are the best bang per buck when it comes to increasing performance.

Are Custom Stainless Steel Braided Brake Lines for Me?

Decide for Yourself...

  • Replacing rubber brake lines with stainless steel braided brake hoses increases braking performance and decreases braking distance - making your vehicle safer.
  • "Custom made" doesn't mean it has to take a long time to get. We can usually fabricate your brake lines the same day.
  • Just because our product is high-performance, it doesn't mean that it's expensive. In most cases, we charge less for our stainless steel braided lines than what you would get charged at a car dealership for standard rubber hoses.
  • Any vehicle can benefit, not just your car. We make brake hoses for cars, motorcycles, ATVs, rock crawlers, go karts and most other vehicles using a hydraulic braking system.
  • Our brake hoses are street legal/D.O.T. approved. We test every assembly we fabricate to 3,000 p.s.i. to assure quality and safety.
  • We need to see your old brake lines, even if you are making modifications. The dealers' databases contain errors which we have no control over but could result in selling you a product that won't fit. When we have your old brake lines to work with, we can assure that all the fittings are correct, that the brackets are in right places - and we can make any additional modifications you need.

Brake Lines Don't Last Forever



The estimated life of a typical 'rubber' brake hose is 6 years, according to BrakeQuip, the manufacturer of aftermarket rubber and high-performance stainless steel braided brake hoses. The actual wear of your brake hoses depends on weather conditions where you drive and store your vehicle, your driving style, etc. Here are some factors influencing the rate of deterioration of your brake hoses:

  • Moisture absorption into the brake fluid through the hose.
  • Contaminants in brake fluid are abrasive on the inner walls.
  • Hoses deteriorate from the inside as well as outside.
  • Hose reinforcing fabric weakens from expansion and moisture.
  • High brake operating temperatures.
  • Constant flexing from steering and suspension weakens hoses.
  • Brake hoses swell with age which causes restricted flow.
