Posted on 30th, December 2010 about 5 Layer Braided Hose (3m length)

I bought these braided hoses in blue to replace the standard hoses on my Hayes Strokers to give my bike a touch of colour. As usual the order was easy and the products turned up within a week... excellent service. But unusually for Superstar products the quality of the hoses is poor. The outer protective layer of plastic is very thin and easily damaged especially during fitting. Also the hoses themselves are dissapointingly thin and i believe they will be easily crushed / crimped in a crash or even on a bike rack. The original hoses i took off my Strokers seem to be more rigid! Overall 2 out of 5. I wouldnt recomend these to a friend.
