Returned my gears to silky smooth shifts
Comes with everything you need to change cables on the bike, including more than enough length of inner and outer. Quick delivery as usual from merlin.
Convenient to have everything in one box - don't know if it is the PTFE but shifting pretty slick now
I've tried all the various light weight alternatives and the trails around Hebden Bridge have destroyed them in next to no time.
This XTR level Shimano set might be a few grams heavier to it just works whatever the weather.
Having been used to gore rideon cable systems I was a little sceptical about these but having installed them (easie than gore) they've worked a treat, recent heavy rain and mud in the lakes hasn't bothered the operation of the shifting.
At last shimano have got their act together and came out tops
Great product. Gears seem to be more responsive with these cables than with my old well worn cables.
This cable set is the daddy. I brought these to replace my 2 year old cables as I thought it was about time. The shifting performance is so much smoother and all the fittings offer much more protection to the inners compared to my old jagwire setup. Service from Merin was fantastic once again, very good delivery times and price!!
What a difference! Rode my bike all through winter and gear changing became pretty drab, I actually thought there might be something wrong with the shifter. Slid these slick things in and precision shifting is now effortless. I wouldn't use the non PTFE stuff again.
Oh and Merlin were super fast with their delivery so I was out at the weekend.
Still prefer this combination of SP41 and 'xtr' teflon slick inners to any other system. I dont see the need for the fancy (read expensive) sealed systems especially with modern bikes having full outer cable runs
Really smooth shifting even in the tight internal cabling I have on my Zesty. Great service and price from Merlin.
Not had much time to review item but great speedy service by merlin.
MERLIN, ORDER & FORGET, NO PROBLEMS
This is a very good cable set with all the bits needed and enough outer to run full length for both front and rear. Not sure what the PTFE does really but for the little extra is costs anything that helps keep your cables running smother for longer is worth it. What a difference this has made to my ride!
Merlin does the business yet again. At my door less than 24 hours from ordering. Great prices too. Best Online Mountain bike shop by miles...
Worth spending the little bit extra to get the PTFE inner wires. Super smooth shifting, I've been using these for years and never had a problem with them. Just as good if not better than the Gore sealed cables and alot cheaper.
I honestly can't tell the difference in shifting between plain stainless cables. The set came with one long run of outer though (better as you can cut it however you need it) and plenty of ferules etc. Was a good deal on Merlin too.
Used these cables for years - excellent product
PERFECT ! MY GEARS ARE BACK TO NEW.
