Who makes the cool derailleur housing on Iron Horse bikes?

I was at a local Performance store, and happened to have noticed the cool derailleur housings that were used on all the Iron Horse Hollowpoint & SGS bikes. I thought that those looked different from Jagwire's or Avid's FlakJacket, and the mechanic guy there couldn't tell me who makes those, either. He just said, "Oh, these're some OEM parts that we can't get."

Does anybody know who makes those derailleur housings?

Thanks for the info, in advance,

PS.
I thought it was pretty cool how SGS has lots of cable-routing options along the stays/tubes (ie. rear brake cable can be put along the chainstay or seatstay), and it had fully housed derailleur, too.

The housing on highend Iron Horse Bikes is made by Alligator. Alligator is also a team sponsor of the Iron Horse/Mad Catz pro team. They do a lot of biz in the OEM auto and moto industry for cables, brake line, etc. Their housing can also sometimes be found under the Unex brand name.

With your keyword hints, I searched online & found their website - thanks.

https://www.alligatorcables.com/unex/htm/cable_sets.htm

With this small picture, it's a bit hard to tell whether or not this is the same one on Iron Horse bikes, but it kinda looks like it...(?) Anyway, I then searched online by its part# ("UN-HYPER011" or "Hyper Compressor"), but no good search results came out as to where I can buy one from. (Oh, well... No biggies...)



Thanks again,
