Magnum - 35 Years of Maintaining Quality Control

Scott Hurwitz, CEO of Pittsford, New York based control cable specialist Magnum Shielding, says he and his “employees believe that quality matters”! 

Kevlar winding and twisting

Recognized worldwide as a premier manufacturer of matching braided brake lines, control cables and now handlebars, Magnum has a history of quality stretching back more than 35 years. That quality has resulted in longevity: Magnum has been a Tier 1 Harley-Davidson P&A supplier and an exclusive Drag Specialties supplier for decades.

Brake hose braiding operation

“Our company’s ISO-based Quality Management System, CAD design and engineering department and vertical integration of in-house processes enables Magnum to control quality at every level. The result?  Magnum is consistently able to deliver premium products with great looks and stellar performance to the Harley-Davidson industry, dealers and enthusiasts. 

100% brake line assembly pressure testing

“To support the company’s commitment to the industry, all necessary processes to control quality are done right here in-house at Pittsford, New York. This ensures all cables and lines always match in both color and weave, whether the Sterling Chromite, Black Pearl or Polished Stainless upgrades are purchased today, next month or next year.”
Magnum even designs and manufactures its own ABS and non-ABS brake hoses for making brake line assemblies. Their in-house capabilities include enamelling and wire fabrication, Kevlar twisting and winding, braiding, extruding, induction brazing, tube bending, machining, polishing, assembly operations using lean manufacturing cells, and DOT FMVSS-106 compliance testing. 

Magnum Shielding says its new 1.25” Caliber Bagger or Ape Hanger handlebar kits are the only complete kits with matching Sterling Chromite II or Black Pearl braided cables and DOT brake lines
