VENHILL CABLES

PRODUCT REVIEW – VENHILL CABLES AND HOSES

Venhill's braided hoses and cables were the ideal finishing touch to our Husky FE350 rebuild...

VENHILL ‘Featherlight’ throttle cable

Price £ 34.99 (OEM £36.24)

WHAT IS IT?

Venhill’s  Featherlight throttle cables are made from high quality marine grade stainless steel for strength and durability but also feature a PTFE Teflon inner liner which produces extremely low friction allowing for smooth throttle operation and hence the name ‘Featherlight’ They are designed to increase the feel and responsiveness at the throttle which is essential to good throttle control in hard and classic enduro, especially in technical conditions. 

WHAT’S GOOD ABOUT IT?

We ran the featherlight throttle cables on both out KTM and HQV enduro bikes for the past few months and have been really happy with the quality and feel at the throttle.  We run Scotts steering dampers with throttle guides that can be tough on throttle casings but the Venhill cables have performed better in the durability stales than our OEM originals over similar periods. As for the feel at the throttle we always run the quick turn throttle cams and this combined with the Venhill cable provide both a light and super responsive throttle action. Lastly, we love the price.

VENHILL rear brake line

Price £39.99 (OEM £72.36)

WHAT IS IT?

Constructed from marine grade stainless steel AS3 Venhill brake lines eliminate expansion in the hose to significantly improve feel and response and fitted with stainless steel swivel unions which allow you to slightly adjust the angle of the banjo to give you perfect alignment on the caliper and master cylinder every time.

WHAT’S GOOD ABOUT IT?

We fitted the steel braided Venhill rear brake line to our 2020 KTM 350EXC-F as the final part to our factory racer spec braking system upgrade. The bike was fitted with the factory Brembo calipers both front and rear, plus their upgrade off road factory reservoirs and to top the system off we chose to run the Venhill braided lines for both performance and durability.  This ensured that our brake lines maintained their shape and form to deliver hydraulic fluid pressure consistently and effectively.  The feel on the foot lever is precise and consistent, fitment was plug-and-play easy and the price and value for money was great. 

Venhill offers a sensible upgrade part over OEM without breaking the bank and ensured that we got the best from our upgraded braking system as a whole.
