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 which would 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 is reinforced with 5 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 specialty constructed with NOMEX reinforcement and has a high temperature rating for use up to 250°C.
The hose is supplied as a 300mm (1ft") length with straights either side of the bellows which can be cut down to a shorter length.
This high quality specialist product comes in black and is available in 51mm 2” (2”), 63mm ( 2.5”), 76mm (3”) and 102mm (4”) diameter. Prices start at £41.66 + VAT
