Lightweight, durable, and race proven, Aeroquip's Startlite racing hose has been approved by NASCAR, the NHRA, IHRA, and other sanctioning bodies. It features a pre-dyed black Nomex cover with a red tracer braid to ensure peak performance and a consistent, fade-resistant appearance. Aeroquip increased its abrasion resistance and overall hose strength by adding KEVLAR® to the fire-retardant Nomex cover. This hose assembly is up to 45 percent lighter in weight than conventional high performance assemblies. With a temperature range of -45 to 300 degrees F, it can handle nearly any plumbing job safely and securely.
