Shifting inevitably wears on your cables, leading to slow and sloppy performance and making you curse the day that you didn't go electronic. The proper choice in shift cable is as vital to your Shimano shifter investment as keeping the chain clean and the rear derailleur tuned; corrosion-resistant materials and built-in lubrication top the list of required features. The Shimano PTFE Coated Derailleur Cable serves up both durability and smooth shifting action, making it a top-of-the-line enhancement to cable longevity and crisp shift quality.

Developed for Dura-Ace 7900, the stainless-steel PTFE Coated Derailleur Cable is compatible with all other Shimano cable-actuated road shifting systems. It is 1.2mm wide and 2100mm long .

Great cable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my first experience with a coated cable, and so far Im impressed. After a couple months of use I see little wear, so hopefully the durability of this cable will hold up some time longer. Cant complain, I highly recommend it!

Smooth Shifting

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Used for replacement on my Sram Red shifters. The PTFE provides smooth effortless shifting. Easy to install on finicky Sram road shifters

Great stuff!

Cable is cable is cable.......right? Well, maybe to a degree. The coated cable is a bit slicker and has better return position. Problem is with a derailleur you have to scuff off the coating where it is cinched down on the derailleur or in my experience it will slip slowly. Don't know why but it will. So just take a bit of the coating off by using a very light grit sandpaper or emory cloth.
