Product Description


Shimano XT M8000 Gear Cable Set

Slicker cables = slicker gear shifts. That's why you should consider Shimano Optislick cables.

Optimised for Shimano XT shifters, M8000 cables would make a superb upgrade for near any gear shifter / derailleur combo.

Shimano Optislick cables are a big improvement over standard cables for the following reasons:

  • The Optislick stainless steel inner cable has a permanent slick coating electrically applied so you can be sure this cable will slide smoothly throughout its long life.
  • The Shimano SP 41 outer cable is axial wound, so it's stiffer than regular brake cable housing so it resists compression - again to facilitate slicker gear shifts.
  • The outer casing is lined with a polymer sheath, then lubricated internally along its entire length with low-friction silicone grease to further reduce cable friction.

Supplied with all you should need to re-cable front and rear gears, this pack includes

  • One 2,100mm long x 1.2 mm thick Optislick inner wire.
  • One 1,800mm long x 1.2 mm thick Optislick inner wire.
  • 3,300mm SP41 outer casing for a complete bike
  • End caps and rubber shields.

You almost certainly also need cable cuttersto fit cables neatly.
