Hi guys

I'm replacing my dura ace 9000 with etap. Just wondering if anyone has a positive or negative opinion on the SRAM brake cables. I have a matte black s works Tarmac. I was never mad about the colour of the dura ace outers vs the colour of my frame but it all functioned so well I didn't bother changing them. Now I have a blank canvas so to speak I'm wondering what my options are as I don't have massive experience of different brands of cables.

Sorry if this is a recurring topic!

For shift cables where it's friction vs. return spring you have to think about cable, for brakes it doesn't matter much, plus SRAM cables are ok anyway.

I went from Sram Red 22 mechanical to eTap and replaced the brake cables with Jagwire Elite Link and the brakes feel much firmer. I also have a matte black bike.
