Product information steel braided lines
Our steel braided lines are practically indestructible and are not subject to any wear & aging process. A special seal between the fitting and the hose allows the line to be laid without twisting.
The plastic coating additionally protects steel flex fabric against external influences such as salt, dirt, moisture and brake dust and is also a reliable protection against mechanical stresses such as friction/chafing and vibrations.
Available free of charge in many colors!
Fittings / Connections
Aluminum fittings are mainly used for motorcycles.
Available in the anodized colors silver, black, gold, red, blue, titanium, chrome
We use stainless steel connections for all passenger car lines, as stainless steel is better suited to the heavier stresses on passenger car steel flex lines.
However, you can also choose stainless steel connections for motorcycle cables and custom-made products in the configurator.
ABE and TÜV approval of steel braided hoses.
ABE (General Operating Permit)
Lines 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 from the Kraftfahrbundesamt. In the event of an inspection, it is sufficient to present the ABE.
TÜV parts certificate
If your vehicle is not listed in the ABE, or if the hoses are installed in a different way to the original installation, you will need a parts certificate.
This parts certificate certifies that your product has been tested and approved by TÜV or DEKRA and complies with the standards.
You will receive this parts certificate from us at the same time.
