- Gore-Tex coated
- Protects against corrosion
- Reduces friction
- Outers look a little dated
Price as reviewed:
Gore RideOn inner cables are Gore-Tex coated, within a sealed liner from end to end.
The Gore-Tex protects the cable from corrosion and significantly reduces drag, improving function. They’re expensive, but experience suggests they’ll outlast standard cables by miles. Fitting is a breeze but 6mm gear outer casing looks dated.
Gore RideOn cables were spotted on the Cannondale CX9 of multiple Three Peaks winner Rob Jebb during the cross season, and cyclo-cross is where these cables really come into their own.
Innovative, top-end cable set that's worth the outlay if you're riding a bike in foul conditions regularly
