Viper Performance has just released a silicone articulated bellows hose specially designed for areas of heavy vibration, where there is a high level of lateral and compression movement within the engine bay, which could cause other hoses to stress and split quickly.

In these situations the quadruple centre hump convolutions act as a bellow and offers excellent flexibility and vibration absorption.

The bellows section is reinforced with five steel rings to prevent the hose from ‘ballooning’ under boost or pressure, keeping the shape and integrity under any condition. This makes the hose ideal for connecting a charge cooler or intercooler.

The hose is specially constructed with NOMEX reinforcement and has a high temperature rating for use up to 250°C and is supplied as a 300mm (12in) length with straights either side of the bellows, which can be cut down to a shorter length, if required.

This high-quality specialist product comes in black and is available in 51mm (2in), 63mm (2½in), 76mm (3in) and 102mm (4in) diameter.

Prices start at £49.99 inc VAT with more details available from 0845 095 3423 or www.viper-performance.co.uk ENDS.
