Goodridge have recently launched a hydraulic hose for use on mountain bikes disc brakes. Featuring the same hose as used on formula 1 cars, with a unique reusable fitting design, the hoses are being raved about. Currently being used by World Cup Champion Steve Peat, Cedric Gracia and Canada's number one Dustin Adams, who described it simply as 'awesome'. The MBUK review called it 'nothing short of a revolution' and scored it 10/10.
Increased braking performance, strength, flexibility and durability means that it has applications and benefits in all areas of mountain biking including Downhill, XC, Freeride and Trials (and recumbents). Goodridge hoses are compatible with most makes and models of disc brake including Shimano, Hayes, Hope, Magura, SRAM and Grimeca.
Each kit comes complete with all necessary fittings for both ends of the cable and one long length of Hose suitable for Front or Rear use. Instructions on how to fit are included. Ends are also re-useable
Buy Goodridge Disc Brake Hoses from Chain Reaction Cycles, the world's largest online bicycle store.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Better than expected!
When they first arrived I was glad I bought two as one is deffinately not enough, fitting was strait forward but be aware that even tho you have tightend the ends right down you may need to give them a final nip as I found they started leaking at the lever end during bleeding
Overall they do make a noticeable differance, not so much lever feel but how it transmits the power to the caliper, do don't worry when after bleeding that the levers feel the same as before because on first ride you will feel the differance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous OK hose kit
Bought these to improve my Hope Mono Minis.
I can't say they were an improvement over the Hope hoses (which are very good); in fact, I think the Hope end connectors are better.
It is a nice hose though, but do believe the 'changed my braking forever' type hype.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excelent update !
I have this on my Hope mono m4 rear brake.
It will improve the feeling of the brake, more smooth on the barking, and even more power!
It is a thing that all bikes should have.
It's more flexible than a regular hose, and nearly impossibel to snap! Buy this !

Read the reviews and thought that there was no way a hose could make such a difference. Fitted the hoses which was pretty easy, I’ve never had to replaces hoses but the videos on the Hope website really helped.
The difference is staggering. Before there was always some play in the levers before any brake action, now only a tiny amount. The difference in breaking power is fantastic. The Mono M4’s now feel as I expected them to feel.

If you feel your brakes are a little underpowered, get these hoses on. They transformed my mono minis. I reckon braking power and response is up about 20%
