Brake hoses

Safety and reliability: the Hutchinson range of original quality brake hoses.

A safety component

Present in all braking systems, the brake hose plays an essential role. It transfers the brake fluid in complete safety and at high pressure to the brake callipers. While the pipes in the braking system are generally made of steel, the brake hose has, by its very nature, to be flexible to adapt to the movements of the front and rear suspensions. As such, it is subject to a number of twisting and climatic wear stresses.

A safety-critical part, the brake hose must be regularly checked and may result in an MOT failure.
 

A flexible and 100% leak-proof structure

The hydraulic brake pipe generally comprises a pipe made of rubber and reinforced with synthetic fibres and a plastic layer and, depending on options, intermediate couplings, fixing flanges and rubber protection. The rubber provides all the flexibility and leaktightness of the pipe.
