Shimano's Polymer Coated Inner Brake Cable is the slickest around.

Developed for the Dura Ace 9000 and Ultegra 6800 component groups, this inner brake cable is made from stainless steel and then given a polymer coating. This combination reduces friction and improves brake feel.

The Polymer Coated Inner Brake Cable comes with a 1.6mm width, 2000mm length cable for a single brake, one cable end, and two sealed ferrules.

Note: Shimano ONLY approves these cables for use with 9000 and 6800 series plus newer brakes with stronger cable fixing bolts.

Can get fuzzy from polymer and isn't a great improvement over lesser cable

The fuzz is more unsightly than a function issue. The most recent cable I bought hasn't had the polymer coating do this yet. The shifter cable is another story (and review) but it drastically affects shifting and not in a good way.

The Shimano cables at any level (for shifting) are short-lived and need replaced often.

There are cheaper and better brake and shifter cables available.

I won't use either again.
