We're used to seeing Jagwire's brightly colored cable housing adorning bicycles across all levels of cycling because of the brand's reputation for a high-quality combination of cables and housing for smooth shifting and confident braking. The new Jagwire Road Elite Link Brake Cable Kit expands on that functionality with aluminum link construction that will stand out from the crowd while reducing weight and eliminating compression compared to traditional housing.
The aluminum link construction allows the housing to navigate tight handlebar corners and frame transitions without risk of kinking, which makes for smooth shifting action and reliable, precise brake activation. The housing also features a slick-lube liner that works with the Teflon coated cable to drastically reduce friction compared to non-lubed/Teflon cable systems for further improved function and exceptional durability.
- Shaves weight, enhances feel, and grabs attention
- Compression-less link housing for crisp brake lever feel
- Links pre-installed on housing segments for easy setup
- Aluminum housing won't kink or rust
- 50% lighter than steel, 30% lighter than KEVLAR®

Looks cool, works like a charm
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Put these cables on my bike as part of a total overhaul (new group, bar tape, etc) and it looks and feels awesome! The links of the cable housing kind of make it look like a string of bones, which I, personally, think is cool. Brakes feel crisp and reliable.
