Stainless Steel Braided Brake Lines

Goodridge stainless steel braided brake lines are the standard in professional motorsport. There’s no room for volumetric expansion, or “mushy brakes” caused by rubber lines. An efficient braking system allows you to get deeper into the corner and onto the accelerator faster. Additionally, when G-Stop brake hoses are used with an ABS system they virtually eliminate brake pedal “chatter” and significantly reduce stopping distance. DOT Certified and T.U.V. approved
Available at Option Auto Salon
