Fiesta ST Brake Hoses
Stainless steel brake lines are more than a cosmetic upgrade. Brake hoses are an integral part of any hydraulic braking system. As you press the brake pedal in your Fiesta ST, you’re creating pressure along the hydraulic brake lines, engaging the brake calipers and activating the brakes. In most vehicles, these brake lines are made of rubber hosing, which can flex under hard braking situations and high-temperature conditions.

Brake HosesWhen your Fiesta ST rubber brake lines flex or bulge, your brakes may feel soft and spongy. Stainless steel brake hoses prevent brake hose expansion, delivering a firmer brake pedal feel and more consistent brake pedal response. If you’re like most Fiesta ST drivers, you may push your Fiesta ST pretty hard, possibly even taking it to the track now and then. If you plan on racing your Fiesta ST — on the track or street — it would be wise to upgrade your braking system with a set of Fiesta ST stainless steel brake hoses.
Typical Brake Hose DesignApplying the brake pedal on your Fiesta ST engages a plunger on the master brake cylinder, pushing pressure throughout the braking system. This pressure is translated along the brake lines through the hydraulic brake fluid to each brake caliper. The brake fluid carries the applied pressure to each wheel, forcing a piston in the caliper to squeeze the brake pads against the rotor to effectively slow or stop your Fiesta ST.
It’s important to have high-quality Fiesta ST brake hoses under harsh and aggressive driving conditions. Extreme braking conditions can produce as much as 2,000 psi of pressure. Additionally, brake fluid can heat up during more aggressive racing situations. Extreme pressure combined with high brake fluid temperature can take a toll on factory rubber brake hoses, causing the rubber hoses to bulge or expand. This often results in a soft or spongy brake pedal feel.
How Stainless Steel Brake Hoses Improve Braking ResponseThe Premium Fiesta ST braided brake hoses we carry at CJ Pony Parts have a strong PTFE core, also known as polytetrafluoroethylene. This Teflon material is used in a variety of industries due to its unique and desirable properties:
• Chemically resistant to solvents, acids and bases
• The lowest coefficient of friction of any polymer
• Wide temperature operating range — from minus 454 degrees Fahrenheit to 500 degrees Fahrenheit
Wrapped in stainless steel braiding that limits flex and bulge, Fiesta ST braided brake hoses will deliver several key braking benefits:
• Reduced brake hose expansion
• More consistent braking response
• A firmer brake pedal feel
