This is a complete reproduction of a steel rounded outer cable which used to be produced between 1950 and around 1970. However, this is not just only a reproduction but also an overhaul, including an inner liner adapting a modern usage standard, which it didn’t come along with in those days, and pulling a brake lever becomes much easier. The appearance is a vintage look to fit in various kind of styles, but speed change performance is completely the same as modern technology.
By adjusting each color so many times, we brought it back with the vintage look the most. It also includes flexibility, which is the greatest features of the NISSEN company, so that it will give you comfort around the handle bar while still maintaining mobility.
Moreover, because of the increase of disk brake bicycles, a diversification of cable handling, and the usage of a full outer cable, we provide you a total length of 3m (a regular length is 2m mostly), so there should be no shortage of extra cable length for your bike.
The French type is a reproduction product of the outer cable used by Rene Else and Alex Sanger in France from around 1950 to 1970. The feature is that the shape of the round wire (coil) is raised on the surface of the outer cable, and it has a bumpy pattern like an undulation.
