I bought both a set of brake and shifter cables. I used these on a road bike and have had no problems with them. The brakes work better than ever since the housing is incredibly stiff. On the down side they are a bit heavy and less flexible. If you need to have sharp bends in your cable run then you may want to look elsewhere. They are also oversized so they need an adapter ferule (included) to work with some guide stops.

Used these on my last bike build. After a season of riding, they are as good as the day I installed them. Very pleased with them.

Product describtion: So the description is thus: “Alligator Super Fortress Cable Kit is a lightweight double-jacketed compressionless housing fortified with stainless steel wire mesh for durability” – in actual application the cable housing is comparatively very heavy – the words “steel” and “light weight” should only be used relative to masonry and iron. The cable housing is solid and bullet proof, but that makes it overkill. It’s not the weight - but the lack of flexibility from the stillness that dooms this product. You don’t need it and I doubt you’ll even want it
