Gain smoother shifts.

Overhaul the old, worn-out shift cables and housing on your road bike with the Shimano Optislick Derailleur Cable and Housing Set. This set comes with everything you need to replace your front and rear shift cables and housing on your road bike.

I've put it through the wringer

5 stars because the Optislick Cables are great. Leaving this review to warn others that this kit will not work on many MTB frames unless it’s a small sized frame running a 1X drivetrain. My fault for not reading the description fully, I searched “Shimano optislick” and blindly added to cart. I could not find the MTB kit part #Y60198090 in Competitive Cyclist’s catalog.

Get those fresh cables

I've used it several times

Everything you need for crisp shifting. Install is easy thanks to Optislick coating.

>Rating: 5

Like new shifting.

I've put it through the wringer

A great way to get your shifting back to tip-top shape. Cables are slick and slide into the housing very smoothly. Plus it comes with all the housing endcap and cable tips. Invest in these and half-hour of work and you'll be rewarded with crisp shifting.

Great Cables

High quality cables that keep your bike shifting smooth.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Very nice upgrade to any derailleur, these are much smoother than most stock cable setups. Easy to install, compatible with pretty much anything on the market.

Works perfect!

Shifting poorly?....inspect your cables and housing (depending on how much you ride), at a minimum, twice a riding season. Poor shifting may be a result of your cable and housing being old and worn out. One sure fire way to check this is to look at the end of your cable housing to see if the plastic sheath has been pushed back exposing the inner strands. If this is the case, you need to replace these parts. This kit is everything you need (for ROAD bikes) to get this done. If you are replacing MTB cables, you'll need more housing than what's provided in this kit.

great housing

I've used it several times

this derailer cable is nice, easy to set up comes with all the pieces to put it all together and the housing is great. The housing can take a beating, overall great product delivers exactly what is needed for a good derailer cable.

Very smooth

I've used it several times

Replaced my stainless cables on 2 mountain bikes with these kits, the shifts are so much easier with the optislick cables. Easy to cut and fit. This is a cheap upgrade to most stock cables

Smooth shifting!

Bashed my cable a few seasons ago and until recently had no issues with the shifting. Overtime the plastic wore out and exposed cables rusted causing my shifting to completely suck - slowed, skips a gear, etc. Replacing it was super easy and quick, this cable did the trick, shifts beautifully!


Could I use these on a set of late 90s shimano V brakes?

No inner brake cables have a different tip than inner shift cables. Also shift housing Has straight suppor not wound support like brake housing.


oooo...sorry, I'm mistaken (didn't read your question thoroughly). you can't use these on brakes, only shifters.
