Bought "Gatorbrake" from ebay as an alternative. I assume very similar if not the same.

Have had the original stuff in the past and couldn't tell the difference.

It is the same, only a re-brand/label.

Looks to me like the links are manufactured by the same company, but the accessories and internal liners appear to be different as the Tioga/Alligator i-Link has black liners whereas the Jagwire Road Elite Link kit I installed on my cross bike last week has a translucent liner.

@ms6073
I-Links and Elite Links are completely different products. I-links "clip" and then press together while Elite Links press together like Nokons.


Yeah it looks like Alligator, Tioga and Gatorbrake are all the same products rebranded.

Oops, sorry, you certainly are correct as I was going from memory not having used i-links since the introduction of Di2 and only recently installing Jagwire Elite Link shift and brake (disc) on my cross bike.
