Hydro hose quick connect coupler?

I just got a Santa Cruz Stigmata and noticed that on the hydro lines to the brakes they have a quick connect coupler on them that allows you to break the line without having fluid spill out. Does anyone know who makes them? I have searched online but came up empty.

Shimano makes one time use connectors to make bike assembly easier. I don't know of any re-usable quick disconnects for bicycle brake lines.

Found them. It's SRAM connectamajig. You can't get them only OEMs can order it apprently. You can disconnect a couple of times before the brakes need to be bled again which is a good trade off for people that travel with their bikes.

There is nothing special or proprietary about hydraulic fittings for a brake hose.

Go to a hydraulic hose supply store. They can make them for you or you can buy the parts yourself and make your own, as fancy or simple as you want.
