Product information Steel braided linesOur steel braided lines are practically indestructible and are not subject to any wear or aging process. A special seal between the fitting and the hose enables the cable to be laid without twisting. The plastic casing Steel braided fabric also protects against external influences such as salt, dirt, moisture and brake dust and is also reliable protection against mechanical stress such as friction/chafing and vibrations. Available in many colors for free!
fittings / connectionsAluminum: Aluminum fittings are mainly used for motorcycles. Available in the anodised colors silver, black, gold, red, blue, titanium and chrome Stainless steel: We use stainless steel connections for all car lines, as stainless steel is better suited to the heavier loads of car steel braided lines. However, you can also choose stainless steel connections for the motorcycle lines and for the custom-made products in the configurator.
ABE and TÜV approval of steel braided lines
ABE (general operating permit) Cables and parts with ABE are registration-free. Your exact vehicle type is listed in the ABE. The brake or clutch hose is marked with a unique KBA number by the Federal Motor Transport Authority. In the event of an inspection, the submission of the ABE is sufficient. TÜV parts certificate In the event that your vehicle is not listed in the ABE, or the installation of the hoses is carried out in a different way than the original, you need a parts certificate. This parts certificate certifies that your product has been tested and approved by TÜV or DEKRA and meets the standards. You will receive this parts certificate from us at the same time. Note: All lines in our Custom-made / made-to-measure configurators are manufactured for you, a parts certificate is included for easy registration with TÜV/DEKRA.
Areas of application for steel braided lines
SPIEGLER steel braided lines are used as brake and clutch lines in motorcycles, cars / motor vehicles / trucks and in industrial systems. Our steel braided lines are also suitable for all applications subject to tensile stress, such as convertible tops or similar. Our lines are generally approved for hydraulic systems/liquids.
Do I need additional parts for assembly?
Everything already included! Our steel flex kits contain all the parts required for installation - ready preconfigured. Simply install & drive off!
Explanation of the types of laying (SB, Alterntaiv...)
SB: is the designation for Superbike brake lines, suitable for high handlebars. The steel braided lines are delivered with an extended dimension. Alternatively: The alternative routing refers to a type of installation that differs from the original routing. In the graphic below you will find many types of laying illustrated.
Do I need new banjo bolts for assembly?
No, you can reuse the original banjo bolts. In our shop, however, you will find banjo bolts in various anodized colors and can therefore match the color of your brake line with the banjo bolts. It just looks good – perfectly styled!
Are the fittings/connections twistable?
Yes, the connections can be rotated 360° and are therefore very easy to turn into the exact position for perfect installation.

If you would like a steel flex made to measure from one of our configurators, it is important to send us the correct cable length.
How to measure the correct cable length (length A1, see graphic):
- For ring fittings, please always measure from hole center to hole center.
- Always measure screw fittings to the end of the thread.
