If you run brakes, there shouldn’t be any debate to what cable you should run. We make the original linear cable and to this day, it’s still the best. Our special K-Shield housing tests out to be 55% stronger than all of our competitors. It’s found on ALL of our linear cables; the Original, Race (30% lighter), SLS (ultra smooth with PTFE coating) and our Quik Slic (Linear Slic Kable and Straddle Cable in one).
To give you guys an idea of what makes them so good, we put together this video starring Aaron Ross to highlight the key features of our Linear Slic Kables. Aaron uses the Quik-Slic version for improved performance and easy install.
In this bike check, Gary Young walks us through just about every part on his bike and gives us an in-depth look into his setup.

Just a friendly reminder that there’s really only one choice out there when it comes to brake cables. Our Linear Slic Kables were the original and are still the best. These cables we tested are the BMX competition, not some Wal-mart crap. All cables are NOT created equal. RACE version is also the lightest cable, and SLS is the smoothest.
Here’s Terry Adams’ old bike! Kinda weird to do a bike check on an old bike, but we have been sitting on these photos for a while. This is the Bike Terry rode in Terry and Aaron, The Sequel. This was the prototype stuff that we didn’t want to show until it was out, complete with an updated look of The Waltz frame and his new signature Hobby Bar. You can’t get this bike in Purple, but like Terry’s New bike (Bike check coming soon) it is all available in Blacker than Black. Click around the flipbook to check it out!
Our new Quik Slic Linear Kables are available now. Please read on for all the info you will need.
The Quik Slic is a patent pending, all-in-one, cable design. This means that the cable, cable hanger and straddle cable are all manufactured as one unit. In addition to providing an incredibly easy assembly, the braking response is greatly improved as a result of eliminating the traditional cable “bend” and tightening points that are usually found on a normal straddle hanger. You can feel the difference as soon as you pull the lever. Quik Slic equipped complete bikes have been shipping since late 2011, and the response from bike shop employees is universal. The assembly is a piece-of-cake, and braking performance improves immediately. Every Quik Slic uses our improved K-Shield Linear housing assembly.
Our latest color kit is Matte Kelly Green and it’s AVAILABLE NOW! Contact your local shops and mail-orders to load up on ’em.
