Braided hoses to suit my Shimano brakes

As title really, got a set of Shimano MT501/MT520, hose/caliper does not have banjo type fitting, does anyone know if there are any braided hoses that will fit these brakes?

Thanks

    Yes, aftermarket, various options, Shimano don’t do any as they are pretty much a waste of time and money.
    Goodrich are a quality supplier.

    Why do you wanted braided hoses?
    What is wrong with the hoses that came with the brakes?

    IMHO They look pretty mean and they remove the spongy feeling from the lever, giving a positive feel/feedback especially when braking hard and continually. At least they do on a motorcycle, personally I can’t go fast enough on a bicycle to warrant them :p

    Worthwhile upgrade on a 1000cc sportsbike perhaps, but I can't imagine them making that much difference to the forces involved in bicycle brakes. Even on motorbikes they're "nice to have" rather than essential.

    Look cool though.

    Colleague at work has them fitted and said they make quite a lot of difference with regards to the spongy feel, so thought it may well be worth giving them a go. Can see how they may improve a brake system that uses rubber hoses (car or motorbike) but my hoses are a hard plastic so not too confident it will be a huge difference.

    It's more likely that they solved the spongy feeling by requiring a full bleed when they were fitted. I've had them before and while they make a very small difference, it's barely noticeable.
