The truth is stranger than friction.
Have you been disappointed in your bike's recent shifting behavior? Missed shifts, strange noises, or slow response time all could mean it's time for some new cables. The Shimano OptiSlik Shift Cable Set has everything you need to deck your bike out in new, friction-free shifting. Each stainless steel shift cable features Shimano's OptiSlik polymer coating, reducing the surface area and providing a smooth, lubricating surface between the cable and the shift housing. These cables reduce shift effort by up to 20% over Shimano's previous game-changing PTFE shift cables. With less friction, your bike will be shifting with more precision and faster response, and a longer lifespan.
Compatible with Shimano road and mountain bike shifters. Includes two shift cables (1.2 mm head x 2100 mm or 1800mm length) and 3100mm of cable housing, sealed inner and outer cable caps. Available in multiple colors.
