A good quality set of brake cables should make your brakes more responsive with improved control. This will let you manage your speed as you ride. Another reason why brake cables are good is because they’re an essential part of your braking platform. Without them your brakes will cease to function.
Wiggle stocks a wide range of brake cable sets for both mountain and road bikes. Brake cables sets include a front and rear brake set of inner wires with an outer casing for a complete bike. You can also purchase an individual brake inner cable without the outer casing.
Brake cables can make a big difference to the way your brakes feel, a good quality set of brake cables should make your brakes respond more positively and be more controllable, this will enable you to manage your speed through technical sections while off road or descending on the road. The invention of the brake cable, known as a Bowden cable, has been popularly attributed to Sir Frank Bowden, founder and owner of the Raleigh Bicycle company who, circa 1902, was reputed to have started replacing the rigid rods used for bicycle brakes with a flexible wound cable. The basic design has remained un-changed, but improvements in materials and technology have improved providing a smoother and more positive lever feel.
