Classic Tube's "Stop Flex" hoses are DOT-approved braided hoses that are legal for both street and off-road applications. Classic Tube's design consists of a PTFE inner core, a single braid of Kevlar, a barrier layer, and a single layer of 300-series stainless-steel wire braid. With this combination, there is virtually no volumetric expansion, so brake pedal response is immediate, not spongy as with standard hoses. While made to use standard-brake-fitting adapters, they can be made with JIC/UNF, metric, standard pipe, banjo, or three-way fittings as well.
