Flexweave locking cable, 3/8" x 7 feet.
Easy to use braided cable. Ample length, coils to store easily. Difficult to cut.
The details on why our Flexweave cables are different than the others.
American made Flexweave cable is produced with a specially woven cable specifically designed for this purpose. That purpose is to make a locking cable that is harder to cut, lighter in weight, easier to use, and have a longer service life than any other cable.
We start with a brass plated high carbon steel wire. This wire is stronger yet lighter in weight than standard mild steel wire that is used on all other cable. This allows the use of many fine wires, some as thin as a human hair. This produces a cable that is more flexible and in many cases harder to cut. The brass plating acts as it’s own lubricating surface during the winding process and allows the cable to be drawn through dies without the use of lubricating oils and then solvents to remove the oils. Better for the environment and the oils and solvents won’t leach into the vinyl coating, causing it degrade quickly.
After the multi-stage winding process, the cable is coated with a specially formulated vinyl. Kable Klear Vinyl is free of coloring dies that absorb the suns rays thus shortening the life of vinyl. It also will stay flexible at freezing temperatures. American Made vinyl is far superior to Asian vinyl. With a higher UV and abrasion resistance, you can expect our vinyl to last eight to ten times longer than Asian imports. That means a Flexweave Cable will still be around after many years of service. You would have to purchased a number of Imported cables by then and the old ones with the cracked plastic would end up in a landfill.
Take the test: Try locking a bicycle to a pole or tree with the common coiled cable. The proper way is to feed through both wheels and the frame and around a solid object. Now unlock it and remove. Now do the same with a Flexweave Cable. Most bicycles are stolen because they are not locked or not locked properly. After you have used a coiled cable, you can see why consumers prefer not to use them.
