The ELEVATE Volvo V50 Performance Braided Stainless Steel Brake Hose (Line) REAR ONLY kit optimizes braking performance. Brake pedal feel is enhanced, offering better modulation and confidence when braking. While factory rubber hoses expand as the brakes are applied, our lines transfer the fluid force to the caliper pistons-where it belongs. This complete kit replaces all rubber brake hoses on the V50. This kit is a pair of rear hoses only.
Elevate uses premium, five layer brake hose which all but eliminates any expansion in the flexible brake hose section. Construction of our hoses starts with an inner layer of extruded Teflon, covered with woven Kevlar, which has a barrier wrap around it. This barrier wrap is then surrounded with a braid of 303 stainless steel, which then has a clear PVC covering to protect the line and materials the line may come in contact with. Our hoses have a working pressure of 1,750psi and a burst pressure of 7,000psi. As a point of reference, modern cars operate at maximum pressures of around 1,200psi. Our lines are DOT approved, making them legal for use on the street. Our lines are impervious to ozone which breaks down rubber hoses over time. This all but eliminates hose expansion under pressure for optimal performance. All lines are custom made to the correct lengths with proper fittings on each end.
