Why Invest in Stainless Steel Braided Brake Hoses?

Stainless steel braided brake hoses are an accessory that is often overlooked by car enthusiasts. With their impressive attributes and sleek appearance, stainless steel braided brake lines provide a range of advantages to any car owner, but really come into their own with performance cars and rugged, endurance vehicles. The advantages of stainless steel braided brake hoses include:


Braided stainless steel brake lines are an extremely durable car component. Able to flex when force is applied, these hoses don’t simply break, and the sheath of braided stainless steel wire which encases the metal hose provides considerable armour against abrasions, cutting, tearing and other mechanical damage. When you need a tough brake line, braided stainless steel is the way to go!

Corrosion Resistance

In addition to impressive mechanical strength, stainless steel, like the steel which makes up the braided steel brake hoses from Brakequip, is very resistant to corrosion. You won’t need to worry about water, grime or chemicals from the road damaging your hose, and the actual brake fluid will pass harmlessly inside it!

Pressure Resistance

Brake hoses must all be able to resist large spikes in pressure, as without that, the brake system can’t function – but the ability of braided stainless steel brake hoses to resist pressure is even greater than that found in ordinary brake hoses. Thanks to the strength of the steel braiding which sheaths them, the hose can relay high braking pressures to the brakes without expanding or losing any force.


The appearance of a stainless steel braided brake line is sleek and striking, and it stands out against the duller materials of a car undercarriage and interior. This serves two purposes – first, the aesthetic of the stainless steel brake line is pleasing and lends itself well to performance cars or cars with an attractive outward aesthetic, and second, the bright appearance of the hose makes it easy to locate and work with during maintenance or repairs – clearly showing damage and being visible enough to see clearly in many conditions.


A stainless steel braided brake hose is an adaptable, reliable brake hose, which is suitable for a range of vehicles and a range of requirements. With the ability to broaden the ends of the hose to fit a larger fitting, or to order longer hoses or cut a hose to length, whatever your requirements, the stainless steel braided brake hoses from Brakequip can meet them.
