Reduce connections, reduce leaks with Super-Flex hoses

superflex silicone hosesInstead of buying and joining multiple joiners, elbows and hose clamps buy 1 length of Super-Flex silicone hose. The more joins you have the more potential for a leak. Often used for marine engines, power generators, science labs and machinery.

With an average life expectancy of 6 times longer than rubber hoses these silicone flexible hoses are a great investment. Manufactured with a steel wire spiral embedded inside the reinforcement plies, allows for a flexibility not possible with most standard straight hoses, and will also take higher pressures compared to standard silicone hoses.

Resistant to glycol and other coolants that are non-organic acid based. Hand build wuth 5mm wall including 1mm inner liner and 3 plies of reinforcement made from high tear strength fabric.

Please see video for demonstrations on how flexible our Super Flex hoses are:

Elbows, Elbows Elbows

aluminium elbowsViper Performance Aluminium Hose Joiners are designed to fit perfectly with any universal silicone hose. We have a range of elbows available from 15° to 180°.  With such a vast array of bends and sizes available you are sure to find what you need.

Our mandrel bends have the tightest bend radius on the market, most of the mandrel bends are 1.2D. A range of wall thicknesses available and all our pipes have roll beaded ends for the best hose retention out there.

Flexibility with our Articulated Bellow Hoses

Bellow Hump HoseThe Viper Performance articulated bellow is specially designed for areas where the hose acts as a cushion to absorb lateral movement, compression and expansion as well as vibration. For these applications hoses without this construction would otherwise easily split under movement. Highly recommended to connect your charge cooler / Intercooler etc to pipework

These hoses are speciality built with 4 plies of Aramid / NOMEX reinforcements for high temperatures, rated for 250°C, peak for brief period & 220°C maximum working temperature.

Compared to our black Nomex Bellow Hose this offers much more movement, much more compression and expansion. The trade off is a little less pressure handling due to its thinner wall thickness of 4mm and slightly softer grade silicone of 60°ShA. This Articulated bellow would not be so flexible with a thicker wall and harder silicone rubber, it is therefore recommended for use where pressure is not high.

The brown coloured (Iron Oxide) silicone offers better heat stability compared to coloured or black silicone. Also features 3 more pronounced humps for better articulation and 4 Stainless Steel Rings to prevent the hose from ballooning.

The turbo loader hose is reinforced with 4 steel rings to prevent the hose from “ballooning” under boost or pressure, keeping the shape and integrity under any condition.

Our jumbo-sized leg lengths will offer a huge 300x300mm lengths from centreline of the bend radius making it possible to connect two sources with one part only, thus avoiding any joiners and making a better leak proof connection in one piece.

The hose will be supplied to you with equal legs 300x300mm (12″ long) allowing you to easily cut the legs back should you require unequal lengths or slightly shorter options.

This option offers a unique solution, as this would normally require custom building your silicone hose or require large minimum orders.
