An upgrade from basic cables, these galvanized or stainless steel strands are pre-stretched and extruded through a die that removes any rough edges. The result is a smooth surface that reduces friction along the length of the cable. These cables are the most popular choice for riders balancing performance, durability and cost. The stainless steel option offers greater resistance to corrosion. Jagwire slick cables come in two types: - GAS - pre-stretched, slick galvanized steel spiral-bound cables. - STS - pre-stretched, slick stainless steel spiral-bound cables.
