Jagwire Road Pro Cable Kit
Superb and quality alternative to stock OE housing and cables for both SRAM and Shimano equipped bikes. The Racer kit from Jagwire has everything you need to completely re-cable one entire bike. The kit features 4mm derailleur housing lined with its proprietary L3 liner technology for added durability and smooth and precise shifting. The brake cable set uses Kevlar reinforced compressionless Ripcord housing with proprietary L3 liner.
Interesting note on the brake housing - the Ripcord brake housing uses linear wire strands. This construction while compression-free, cannot withstand braking forces over time unless it is reinforced. Jagwire added hundreds of Kevlar strands that are braided around the housing to reinforce the linear strands, which allows the housing to be compression-free and greatly improves braking performance. It's something you can actually feel. Stainless steel shift and brake cables along with alloy ferrules round out the package. Excellent value at this price. Choose your color.

But, the front brake wire isn't long enough to reach a road disk brake - had to substitute another longer brake wire.
Cons short front brake wire for disk.
