Chinese (budget) alternatives for nokon / jagwire etc?

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

I am in the process of lightening my CaadX bike, (Sram Red Crank, KCNC seatpost, DTsiwss wheels, UNO stem, etc)
and I'd like to replace the looooong cable to the (mechanical) rear disc brake with a light-weight alternative.
Initially I looked for Jagwire and nokon, but then I checked Aliexpress for budget alternatives.
Does anyone have experience (good/bad) with any of these? Any recommendations?
e.g. ... 2e0e892JGz

Very good experience with Aican Bungarus. I bought the product to use as brake cables on eBay. It's segmented like Nokon, but in a one piece unit. Probably thinner than Nokon and hence not hard to bend to fit in the handlebars to route as brake cables. It's cheaper than Nokon and comes in many colors.
