Traditional cables vary by the stiffness of the core wire and how tightly it
fits in the casing. Thus the classic trade-offs that have existed in control
cable design: Stiffer core/tighter fit offers less lost motion, but is harder to
move. With longer and more complex runs, cable movement becomes progressively
More flexible core/looser fit has an easier feel, but allows more lost
motion. This approach leads to an overall sloppy feel, RPM loss or difficult
These trade-offs aren’t an issue for cables with TFXTREME technology because
they are different — really different!
Teleflex’s unique TFXTREME technology incorporates a patented splined core.
Ridges on the core allow a close fit with the cable’s inner liner, but with
minimum contact, so the core glides back and forth smoothly like a skater on
RESULT: a control cable with easy movement AND minimum lost motion.
