Shimano SP51 Outer Cable

Super stiff outer cable from Shimano.

- Axial steel 'rods' help make SP51 some of the stiffest outer cable available, improving brake feel.
- Lined with a polymer sheath to help keep your cables running as smoothly as possible.
- Suitable for use with most inner cables.
- Compatible with almost all V-Brake Calipers, V-Brake Levers and Mechanical Disc Calipers.
- Supplied with 2 metal ferrules.
- Sold as standard in 1.5m lengths - if you'd like us to cut the cable down to a specific length, please mention this in your 'Notes' section of your order in the Checkout area. We also have 'offcuts' from time to time, which we will list as separate options.

Hi Adam - thanks for your question. Yes, this is that same outer cable. Thanks, Flipp.

Hey, I just wanted to know if the cable has to be shortened or not? P.S. I'll be getting the newest inspired flow with a disc brake and thats why I wanted to know.

Hi Justin - The 1.5m length should be pretty much spot on for your bike. You could maybe get away with taking a tiny bit off it (most Inspireds tend to run about 1.4-1.45m rear cable lengths), but having that little bit of excess will mean that you shouldn't get any cable binding at all after you've done one or two whips. The front one will need to be shortened to use it though - the length will depend on whether you route it through the steerer tube or not. I'd recommend doing so if you're happy to buy something like the Gusset Hollow Star Nut (Quick find code: 011013) as it will mean you'll be able to rotate your handlebars more without the front cable snagging/binding. The front is much more of a limiting factor than the rear due to the traditional route the cable takes past the head tube. Around 1m should be long enough for the front. Thanks, Mark
