Description

Kick cable friction to the curb with GORE RideOn.

If friction is a road biker's nemesis, then the GORE RideOn Low Friction Road Derailleur Cable Kit has hero written all over it. While sticky cables don't actually slow your wheels down, the extra effort they require saps forearm strength, and they'll keep even the best derailleur from performing at its peak. Missed shifts and lost seconds are the result. At best, that will ruin your workout; at worst, it will push you right off the podium. GORE RideOn fuses each cable and lining in the Low Friction Road Derailleur Cable Kit with Teflon, creating a friction coefficient that's practically nonexistent. You'll shift faster and use less effort, and that means you'll have more to pour out on the final sprint. *Kit includes cables, housing, crimp caps and ferrules.

Well you will never go wrong with the Gore RideOn

I love these cables and use them pretty much exclusively as I have tried other premium brands including (Yokozuna Reaction, Nokon, and Jagwire) and have always found something I didn't like.

the Gore cable are buttery smooth, flexible enough not to interface with spring centered brakes, and the cable last a long time with minimal stretch and no lubrication required.

Save yourself from disappointment of overpriced gimmicky cables (Yokuzuna and Nokon) and don't risk saving a few bucks. By the Gore RideOn.

Note: I hear gore will discontinue the cable systems in 2013. I hope this is an attempt to sell the division, but it appears they are still shipping them in February.

Are these Campy compatible? Or do you need campagnolo specific derailleur cables?

Responded on

Derailleurs, YES. Brakes, NO.

Check out Gore's compatibility at:

Responded on

They are compatible with Campy as well as Sram and Shimano. One end is for Campy and the other is for Sram/Shimano. The OD of the housing is 4mm as well.

?? Customer Support??

Their products seem to be very good, if pricey. Gore seems to lack a functioning domestic system of customer support. It took me five+ weeks to get an issue straightened out with Gore. Once I got to someone with authority and inclination to help they were very fair and helpful.

Write your question here... What are the cable lengths? I need to replace the derailleur cables on a Burley Duet tandem (3000 mm needed).

The XL length is 3000mm

Marginal performance increase probably not worth the cost

I installed these cables on DA7800 system. The cables and parts are all of high quality. However, after installation I've noticed no significant improvement in performance over stock DA shift cables. I have not noticed a significant decrease in shifting effort through the shift levers. I suspect that most high end road groups already work so well that better cables won't make much of a difference. Maybe these cables will improve mountain setups more because mountain shifters typically have smaller shift levers and thus less leverage. Given the large price premium, I would probably just stick to standard cables for road setup.

Good Product

These cables are very solid, in fact the derailleur cables are actually too stiff to fit in the SRAM Force shifters. I was able to get one side, but not the other. I didn't have any trouble though with the brake cables. The housing is also very well made - very smooth and well sealed. Even though I wasn't able to use the cable for the front derailleur the housing improved the shifting using ordinary cables.

Does it come in black?

Responded on

Only the sealed system comes with black housing. This version has gray housing. We introduced white housing to the market at the Interbike trade show 2 weeks ago and Backcountry should have it in stock in a week or soDave - GORE™ RideOn® Cables

Black housing will be available in May
