W. L. Gore & Associates, the makers of Gore-Tex, also plays in the bike-parts space, and many CX racers swear by bike cablesets like the company's RideOn Sealed Low Friction system. The grime, dust, mud and grit of a 'cross course reeks havoc on bike cables. This system, which costs $130 for both shift and brake sets, seals your bike cables with a liner that fits inside the housing. They can pay for themselves because they can last a season or two instead of just a few races, which is the lifespan of regular cable systems in many CX settings.
