Friction is the enemy of braking smoothness and effectiveness. To this end, Shimano has developed their Dura Ace Polymer Coated Brake Cable for ultra-sick, high-performance road braking.
- One 2000 mm polymer-coated brake cable with road cable-end
- Two sealed ferrules
- One cable crimp
Note: Shimano ONLY approves the polymer coated cables for use with 9000 and 6800 series plus newer brakes with stronger cable fixing bolts.

The fuzz is more unsightly than a function issue. The most recent cable I bought hasn't had the polymer coating do this yet. The shifter cable is another story (and review) but it drastically affects shifting and not in a good way.
The Shimano cables at any level (for shifting) are short-lived and need replaced often.
There are cheaper and better brake and shifter cables available.
I won't use either again.
