PTFE Brake Cable & Housing

This Dura-Ace brake cable and housing kit is identical to what comes with a set of Shimano Dura-Ace 10-speed STI levers, and it's an elemental reason why Shimano Dura-Ace brake calipers feel so amazingly crisp. This is a complete set of Dura-Ace brake cables and and housings, with the appropriate cable tips and ferrules -- in other words, this set is enough for one entire bike. And in case you're re-cabling an older set of 9-speed levers, this cable set is perfectly compatible. Choose between Black or Grey.

  • Refresh your housing with this handy housing kit
  • Dura-Ace level quality for crisp shifting and braking
  • Cable tips and ferrules included for full replacement
  • Compatible with both 10-speed and 9-speed levers
  • Available in both black and grey for a clean aesthetic

Solid Performance

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Quality housing and cables, keeps your brakes running smooth.

Unanswered Question

I'm considering switching to SRAM but I like these Shimano cables. Are these a good choice to go with SRAM?

Smooth and Reliable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought these to replace some old and worn out cables and housing on some Shimano 105 calipers. Installation was straight forward and all the required parts are included with this kit. Highly recommend for any Shimano brakes!

Townie Upgrade

    I've been putting some work into my old townie and these have given it a fresh new look! Went with the all yellow and they look superb against my baby blue frame. They're smooth and work great.


    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I've been needing to do some maintenance to my bike and this was perfect. It was very easy to install and now I have full confidence in the strength of my brakes.

    Work great!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Durable, smooth, and preform perfectly. What more do you want out of a cable?


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Shimano cables are so smooth and precise. They work great every time. I run them on every group Shimano or otherwise.

    Will these work on a sram 11 sp system? Noticed the description reads shimano 10 sp.

    yes that will work fine with 11 speed

    Replace them every year

      Always flawless performance, not a bit low trouble. I'd replace every year and never even worry about them.

      Work Great

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I decided to swap out my original brake cables and housing when I was doing some work on my shifters, and these work great. I don't have any complaints about them. They were easy to install (once I got a housing cutter), and they work great with the Shimano 105 components I have on this bike.

      Never fails

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The go to. Housing is smooth and easy to cut. Cables don't fray when cut and won't kink easily. Cant complain

      Great system!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Simply put this is a great cable system that works and comes with plenty of cable both inner and outer housing to do most regular jobs. Easy to install but beware.............always do your rear brake system know what I mean if you have replaced cables before. If not you accidently use the rear cable on the front and before you know it clip the cable and guess what????? You guessed it.............your other cable too short because they are not the same length to do the rear now!!!! LOL! It happens when you're in a hurry! Overall great system and would use again.

      They work

        I'm trying to spiff up an old Shwinn World Race women's bike for the wife. I bought these along with the shifter cables and they fit the whole bike, easy to install, and they work great.
