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. Applications: • 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brainman Gute Leitung und Anschlüsse
Wie bei Goodrige üblich sauber Verarbeitete Anschlüsse und gute Leitung.
Das Kit lässt sich gut anschliessen und ist dicht.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous well worth it
Just fitted the 105 kit to my hope race x2 brakes. Filled with dot 5.1 from halfords, degassed the fluid using a syringe as described on the avid juicy five bleed proceedure from sram on youtube. Not sure if the degassing made a contribution, but what the hell... The brakes are so much sharper with the steel braided hose as apposed to the origional plastic hose from hope. The only item that is not supplied in the kit is copper washer for the fitting at the lever end, but you can reuse the old one, if your upgrading your race X2 brakes...

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Weak connectors, nightmare installation
In the process of trying to get these installed I've so far sheared off 2 of the male lever connectors and one banjo connector.
I called Goodridge today to find out the torque to apply to the banjo connector they didnt know but said that 6ft lbs sounded about right - this was the torque I applied when the bolt sheared. Also the instructions state to tighten the lever male connector until around 1mm from the shoulder of the connector, going on this advise I've sheared 2 of the M6 male connectors.
Also doesnt feel that solid, the Hope systems I normally use would consist of 2 copper crush washers and the banjo this system consists of the banjo and two thin rubber seals.
Also with the Hope 102 kit there is a single copper washer but it doesnt state in the instructions whether this is to be fitted at the lever end or the brake end.
Im sure these are great when installed but it all just feels extremely fragile compared to Hope OEM braded tubing.
I've so far spent about 70 quid trying to get these installed just off to buy another M6 connector for a further £7.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Un trés bon produit, qui se monte trés facilement avec une bonne finition. Le freinage est trés saint sans mou parasite.
Une bonne alternative aux durites d'origine Hayes.
