BRAIDED BRAKE HOSES
Bendix says braided brake hoses offer many advantages for 4WD vehicles
Braided brake hoses included in the Bendix Ultimate 4WD Upgrade Kits are now available in a range for individual purchase and Bendix says they offer a number of advantages over the factory fitted hoses fitted to the vehicle.
By upgrading a vehicle’s brake hoses, Bendix says drivers will experience a vastly improved firm brake pedal feel as the new stainless steel braided hoses do not expand under high pressure and can withstand severe damage from stones and obstacles experienced in off-road conditions.
The Bendix 4WD brake hoses are available for standard ride height vehicles and also in longer lengths to suit two-inch and four-inch raised suspensions requiring longer length hoses. Bendix explains that fitting the Ultimate 4WD hoses poses no problem as they are designed to fit without any modification.
Bendix braided hoses meet SAE J1401 and are fully compliant to international design standards and as such will not impact on the vehicle warranty.
They are constructed from PTFE (Teflon) tubing covered by woven stainless 304 braiding with a Bendix blue protective sheath to protect the braid from dirt, grease and road grime.
The hoses are terminated with 12L14 steel chrome plated fittings and also feature rubber over-moulded sleeves designed to minimise coupling to hose fatigue for long life in tough conditions.
Bendix states that its Ultimate 4WD Brake Hoses are available from leading automotive and specialist 4WD outlets nationwide.
