The Friction Test
We wanted to see how our cables compared to the competition so we simulated tough conditions and tested both cable types. We did accelerated, aggressive wear tests, simulated on-bike conditions for cable routing and even injected water, mud and road “dirt” to simulate real riding conditions.
The result: GORE® RIDE ON® Cable Systems demonstrated significantly lower friction than competitive cables for the duration of the test.

GORE® RIDEON® Cable Systems are the bicycle cable systems of choice for cyclists who demand the most from their bikes. The new Professional System derailleur cables are trusted and proven by SRAM® sponsored professional cycling teams. We offer derailleur and brake bike cable systems for road bikes, mountain bikes, and cyclocross bikes. We also offer extra long bicycle cables for full-suspension mountain bikes and tandem bikes.
