For years, cyclists of all types have struggled with the problematic nature of friction within their cable systems, leading to sluggish, inexact or unpredictable performance. In answer to these challenges, RideOn® Bicycle Cable Systems were introduced to cycling at the 1993 Fat Tire Festival in Colorado, becoming the first high performance cable systems for cyclists. In 2003, Gore stopped selling cables commercially, but relentless requests from customers for RideOn® Bicycle Cables prompted Gore to look at the popular product line once again.
Equipped with a re-designed and re-engineered RideOn® cable featuring the latest Gore coating technology, Gore is unleashing the new and improved Gore RideOn® Cable Systems to the cycling world. The patented cable coating technology introduced with the new Gore RideOn® Cable Systems significantly lowers friction, producing quick, precise and predictable movements. Tested for friction and durability, the Gore RideOn® Cable Systems are available in two types for any type of riding. Whether it's a winding road or rocky trail, the Gore RideOn® Cable Systems were designed to battle the elements and win.
Sealed Low Friction System: Completely protected from the elements by continuous liner and GRUB™ Seals. Patented cable coating technology designed for low friction and durability.
Gore Ride On Sealed Gear Cable Set Features:
Grub T Screws
NOTE: Designed for a 'standard' cable routing, bikes with long sections or full length outer will need to order the 'Extra Long' Versions

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Okay, but no better than XT
These cables worked okay, but not quite as good as the Shimano XT cables I have on my mountain bike. After time (about 8 months I'd guess) the cable coating wore away in the outer cable loop that services the rear derailleur. I wouldn't buy these again

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Nothing like the old ones
Fitted to my commuter in July and knackered by March!
Before anyone asks yes they were fitted properly, as were my previous pair that lasted almost 5 years.
They are nowhere near as good as the old version that they stopped making for a while before introducing this sub standard newer version.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Good for a while
Replaced some seriously crappy Jagwire cables (that had lasted a year with no signs of wear but were never great as shifting) with a set of these, they worked well for a couple of months then the front derailleur cable snapped near the shifter, 2 weeks later the rear mech cable did the same. I do ride 6 days a week in some pretty bad weather but that's why i bought these! Very unimpressed. Will be sticking with Dura Ace or maybe try Nokon next.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Installed these cables 10 months ago, initially they felt fantastic but then the teflon type liner on the inner cable started wearing off and bunching up in the shifter and rear mech. In all fairness I wore out a set of chainrings and a x9 derailleur in the same time period but still its alot of money for cables. Personally I will go back to cheaper cables and do more maintenance, if you dont ride as often then these will probably be ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I have had these on a few weeks now and these are almost a fully sealed cable set. I think the only way you could get water into these would be to fully submerge the bike and then leave it to soak. I guess riding in Britain could be a bit like that but in Australia a lot of riding is dry.
Expensive but great quality and very smooth. I expect they will outlast any other cable set and turn an expensive purchase into great value for money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Good product poorly described
I bought the extra long version of these only to find there is insufficient outer cable to do both front and rear derailleurs on my Scott MTB with full length outers. Be advised you will need to purchase two packets of these to do both front and rear derailleurs on MTB bikes with full length cable outers, (most newer bikes). The really weird thing is you will end up with 2 spare inners and liners left over. A great product poorly described and not really such good value for money when two packets are required to do one bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Expensive but work great
I've had these on my bike for more than a year through it all; rivers, mud, snow...basically the lot. They still shift as well as they did when I first put them on with zero maintenance.
I've now brought a second bike and put them straight on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Dont bother stick to good quality standard
Please don't spend the money on these, I got a voucher for another retailer as a present so thought, what the hell, I'll give them a try. They seem to lure you into thinking you don't have to maintain them (as a lot of people state!) Well you should, as they were on my bike just under a year and seized completely. I keep my bike meticulously clean normally, but these just cannot cope with British weather. I do not know what type of riding other users do, but if do a lot of singletrack, muddy conditions do yourself a favour, save your money and get good quality XT / Goodridge outers and the black coated inners and when things feel a little gritty take 'em out and clean them!
