Mr Littlechild Great cable very low friction but care required to avoid damaging inner coating when fitting.
Barrie nice slick set of cables, outers and all the ends you need to re-cable the gears on your road bike, a little expensive for what they are but feel much smoother than standard cables in use
Mr Arnold Bike is shifting again. Nice to be able to get parts for these.
Eats pizza Sweet cables, comes with all the guides and bits and pieces you need
Mr Bridges Good quality kit with everything you need to replace your gear cables.
Jim I have installed a these a few times now and they are always good quality, with all the parts to do a full cable replacement.
Mr Madrid Great quality but the outer cable length was not enough for both front and rear DR and my frame is a Merida Scultura 5000 size 50 so I consider it should have more length
Mr Karaca It is very slippy and well protected. Top quality speed cable. I absolutely recommend it.
Cesar Smooth gear transmission, always a great upgrade
Mr Fakier Made the shifting on my 5800 gruppo even more smoother.....great buy
Metten Nothing too fancy here, the polymer coating shaves off easily so I'm not sure how much benefit these have over cheaper versions. But they get the job done.
Mr barraclough The usual high quality from Shimano products. Found these cables not to stretch with nice smooth action.
Hruby You can feel the difference relative to jagwire.
Mr Burton Much slicker than the standard cables. Be careful when installing to avoid damaging the polymer coating on the cables. A little costly for what you are getting though.
Goober8 Shifting smooth as butter now. Never going back to normal cables
Blowers Lovely smooth shifting. Worth the price and worth the effort of replacing the cables.
DF Great Cables - noticeably better than standard stainless steel version on 7900
Mr Jerham Perfect smooth gear changes, the best cables available !!!!
Mr Shane This kit really is worth investing in, for the smoothest shifter feel with all the Shimano 11s groups. Night and day difference in feel versus the standard cable supplied with 5800, 6800.
Mr Tran The best cables, I used the innards with my linked housing to solve my shifting issues. Tried powercordz/dura ace 7900/Teflon coated cables and they did not shift perfectly with complex routes, the worse shifting was from the powercordz. After installing the polymer coated cables it made a dramatic improvement and shifting was perfect up and down the gears. Watch out for sharp edges they will cause the polymer to fray. Going to change my MTB cables to these bad boys - Just bought another set.
Mr abraham This new dura ace 9000 set of gear change cables are the dogs dangly bits. I've 105 5700 shifters that are super slick now & significantly better feeling than the standard cable set. Warning: use silicone grease on the cable & be VERY careful sliding it through your shifter mechanism, so you don't scuff off the polymer coating, also ensure you remove the polymer coating where it attaches to the mech....mine slid a little until I did this. This made my 105 feel as good as/probably better than my old 6600 ultegra, which are so nice feeling....
Mr Sargent Superior derailleur cable set for Shimano DA 9000 shifters
Mr Kearn Bought to replace a set of standard 7900 shift cables, built up an internally routed bike with 7900 Dura Ace and had heard about potentially poor(er) shifting. These cables are super slick and the shifting actually feels easier (particularly the front shifting) than on my traditionally cabled frame using 7900 cables, I'd go as far as saying it's like a new groupset. Expensive, but very much worth it.
