|Cables are like the nervous system of your bike. They send information from the controls all the way down to the shifters/brakes. Starting to second guess your 5 year-old cheapo cables yet? Good. The Cane Creek Brake Cable Set features premium cables and housing, designed to be one of the strongest, most corrosions options on the market, so you get smooth, responsive performance, every time. Stainless cables are drawn to 1.8mm, then redrawn to 1.6mm for uncompromised strength. Teflon coating is super slick and sheds dirt like a champ. The casing's inner liner reduces friction and prevents stretch, fraying and rust.
