    Hope SS Braided Line

    Does anyone know if the SS Braided line has a protectiv coating on the line to prevent scratching of he frame or forks??? Looking to order a set from my LBS and the guy at the lbs wasn't sure and it was to late to call there distributor? Looking at gettting the Tech x2's

    Yep, covered with plastic.
    The hosing is same as goodridge, although the hardware is slightly different. I've had some hope hoses on shimano braked for like 3 years and they have been great.

    As FM has said, the Hope lines do have a plastic coat; however, and depending on your routing, I'd still recommend getting some patches for your frame/fork. I quite quickly wore the black anodising from my fork crown.
