The cable end:
We licensed the brass barrel design from Kink bikes instead of just taking their idea.
The separate brass barrel piece prevents wire twist and allows the cable to self-correct which works really well at increasing pulling power due to the stiffer wire.
The cable can be easily converted to a lower gyro cable by removing the barrel.
The aluminum ferrules have a flat bottom for the housing to butt up against which keeps the cable from binding up on the ends. They also have a nylon plastic guide inside so there is no metal on metal rubbing.
Uses steel linear wires with Kevlar fiber wrap that prevents binding when the cable is twisted up. Inside is lined with a Teflon tube built into the housing.
The inner wire is 1.5mm pre-stretched, die extruded, and Teflon coated for lowest friction possible.
A lot of cables have some of these attributes but the Tree cable is the first cable to have all of these benefits in one cable.
