Transfil is situated in the heart of France, at the base of the volcanoes where nature thrives in splendour. This region is also a genuine ground for innovation and know-how.
Diversity of pleasures, diversity of uses, diversity of needs.
For 50 years, Transfil has created, developed, tested and manufactured brake and gear systems for your bike in conformity with the leading bicycle and component manufactures and for every outdoor use : extreme, road and mountain biking.
A cable is composed of an inner core and an outer core. The inner core is composed of one steel thread surrounded by 6 threads making one strand. At this point a simple strand or multi-strand cable can be produced. The composition of a single strand cable is (1+6) + 12 = 19 threads, and a multi-strand is (1+6) x 7 = 49 threads.
Lasers have been set in place to increase production as well as to control the diameter on a permanent basis and in case of any anomalies stop the machine. Each laser sends out the information acquired to a central computer unit where statistics and analysis can be retrieved.
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.
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.
