PROPER FIXINGS

 

Designed for high performance and racing applications, Aeroquip Startlite hose is durable, flexible, and lightweight. The secret rests in the hose’s Nomex® blended outer cover and AQP inner tube. The unique materials make Startlite hose up to 45 per cent lighter than braided stainless steel hose.

More importantly, it allows the hose to withstand higher temperatures for longer periods of time versus a conventional braided stainless hose.

Aeroquip makes Startlite Racing hose with an all-black covering. This makes the hose an excellent complement to a blacked-out engine bay, and helps hide the occasional grimy fingerprint or grease smudge.

Aeroquip also makes hose fittings More >
