Kurt Hall, engineer for Redline Bicycles, home of top performance bicycles in cyclo-cross and 29’r mountain bikes said of the new offering, “Power Cordz™ deliver the smoothest shifting I’ve ever felt; they provide a true, light touch to integrated road levers.”
“SBS offers great brands and service to their customers,” says Tony DuPont, the lead engineer behind Power Cordz™ and founder of Io DuPont. “They also have a ton of credibility in cyclo-cross and, with the new UCI rules allowing mechanical disc brakes in cyclo-cross races, we couldn’t ask for a better partner than SBS as we grow in that direction.”
According to DuPont, the non-corrosive synthetic fibers of Power Cordz™ offer superior modulation and performance to mechanical disc brake systems. They also shed mud, water, and debris more efficiently while being more than 75% lighter than their steel counterparts.
Power Cordz™ are now available at Seattle Bike Supply with or without housing for both brake and derailleur systems and in Classic Black or True White. Check for compatibility information at www.PowerCordz.com/
