Positive Pedal
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.

Get the Optiflo
Check this out for the newest in show hoses. Optiflo is now making radiator, heater, vacuum, air intake, and just about any other hose you can think of out of hand-blown glass. Hoses are available in standard sizes as well as in custom and one-of-a-kind. They can be ordered in virtually any color, shape, or design, from clear to flames.
