from what is know they are basically the same. both compressionless housing(derailuer style housing) with kevlar wrap. i have used ripcord myself and like it better than the normal coil type brake housing
FWIW- the parent company of JagWire has been supplying Sram with their better cable kits for a number of years. There might be minor differences, but basically it's the same stuff from the same factory.Snarefire said:Hey guys got a build going on, and am considering getting Jagwires ripcord in a custom color. Before i was considering getting Srams Flak Jacket, does any one know if there is a major difference between the two? QBP isnt the best source of information, and i am surfing the web for info at the moment, comparisons and expereinces welcome
I'm not sure what ferrules Flak Jackets come with, but the JagWire kits come with stepped ferrules which help keep water out.Snarefire said:Thats fantastic info guys, what about weather resistance, i installed a flack jacket kit just recently and i was impressed with all of the things to seal the der. cables. they are on a friends chameleon he doesnt really clean the bike much, and after six months of use, they are still pristine. So i am fairly impressed, what about jagwire?
