WH Worrall's have picked up a new agency in the way of Gore (as in Gore Tex) gear cables. Gore made these in the past but they have been absent from the scene since 2003 but for 2009/10 they are back and from all the web reviews I've read they are the smoothest shifting cables ever. Period. Our test sets just arrived and we'll be riding them over the next few months for a future review. You can read more about them here. Although we have figured out that the standard low friction kit doesn't come with enough housing for both front and rear cables if you're running full housing on a full suspension bike. But there is a long set that will have ample housing.
