About Gear Cables
Good quality gear cables will have a dramatic effect on the feel and function of your drivetrain. Fully sealed systems are particularly good for MTB's used off-road or your winter bike as they prevent the ingress of water and muck, they have the benefit of requiring minimal maintenance, which is always nice. A good quality gear cable will provide a smoother lever feel, along with sharper and more precise shifting.
About the Transfil brand
Transfil is a quiet giant of a company. Suppliers of control cables to the French car industry, Transfil also produces inner wires and outer cables for bicycles. The original gear or brake K.ble sets were surpassed by the more upmarket Black Snake compressionless system with a Teflon coated jacket, resistant to water, mud and sand. Then followed the Flying Snake with watertight carbon/ Kevlar outer casing weighing 30% less than the K.ble set. The very latest Nox Snake has a white carbon outer casing with Teflon coated inner tubing. These sets are MTB or road bike compatible.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
(The same question applies to the brake cable sets too - the Transfil Black Snake vs. Campagnolo K.ble).
Ergopower & STI both need compressionless cables to work effectively and to shift consistently, I have found Black Snake to work very well on them all. I use a IceTool Cable cutter to make a smooth cut on the outers & inner wires to get the correct lengths, and ensure I wrap the inner wires swiftly to make sure they do not unravel. I have used the waterproof clear sheath on all the bikes, despite having cable runs under all my bottom brackets. I have always considered having cable routed internally before, but never got around to it.
