Long-Travel Suspension

The factory brake hoses are designed to be used with the factory suspension. If you have lifted your vehicle and are running a long-travel suspension system, then you should replace your factory brake hoses with longer brake hoses to prevent yanking on the brake hoses at full articulation.

Steep Hills

Many trails have steep slopes that require heavy braking. This situation is made even worse when the vehicle is heavily loaded for long trips. Greater strain is placed on the factory brake hoses, which are made of rubber and deteriorate over time.

Expeditionware Male DOT Brake Hose

Unlike the factory rubber brake hoses, the Expeditionware DOT Brake Hoses are a four-layer design, with a spiral black plastic sleeve protecting the clear plastic layer against abrasion, the clear plastic layer protecting the braided stainless steel layer against the elements, and the braided stainless steel surrounding the Teflon inner core and protecting the core from bursting under high pressures.

Ordinary Stainless Steel Brake Hose

Uncoated braided stainless steel is unprotected and can chafe against the frame or suspension pieces, causing degradation of the braiding and even possibly brake failure. Uncoated stainless steel also does not protect the Teflon inner core against road salts and the elements.

Expeditionware DOT Brake Hose

Here is a photo of a coated and uncoated stainless braided brake hose. The coating over the braiding adds an extra measure of protection to the stainless braiding, as well as protects the Teflon inner core against the elements.

Expeditionware DOT Brake Hose

The Expeditionware DOT Brake Hoses feature a fourth layer for additional protection.

A black plastic coil surrounds the other three layers and protect them against abrasion.

Expeditionware Disco2 DOT Front Brake Hose

The Disco2's hoses are especially susceptible to chafing and abrasion from suspension components.

Expeditionware DOT Brake Hoses

The clear plastic coating on the hose and the plastic reinforcements on the ends enable our Brake Hoses to meet DOT requirements. Our hoses are DOT approved and street legal.
