Jagwire Mountain Elite Link Shift Kit

This aluminum link housing is the ultimate combination of durability and attention grabbing looks. Available in Black, Red, Silver, Gold, or Blue—it’s designed to enhance your performance and appearance. 

So, why is it better than traditional housing? It’s compressionless, which means precision shifting. But its flexibility allows for tight bends without kinking. It’s also much lighter than traditional linear strand housing while being more durable. Combine these benefits with our Elite, ultra-slick polished cables and Slick-Lube liners that dramatically reduce friction and you’ve got the best of performance and style.

  • Precise, compressionless shifting performance combined with extreme flexibility
  • Each kit comes with links pre-installed on housing segments making setup quick and simple
  • 20% lighter than traditional linear strand shift housings
  • Durable, ultra-slick polished inner cables minimize system friction
  • Aluminum housing won’t kink or rust.

ALLOY - interconnecting alloy links around Slick-Lube liners

Aluminum, Lightweight, Lubricated

An alternative to traditional compressionless housing, this system is made of nesting alloy pieces that protect the liner. Although this housing is typically more expensive, it has several advantages including increased flexibility, reduced weight and increased durability. Both shift and brake housings use identical Slick-Lube liners and interconnecting alloy pieces.

STS-EL - pre-stretched, highly polished, uncoated slick stainless steel spiral-bound cables

Polymer-Coated or Polished Ultra-Slick Stainless Steel

These ultra-slick stainless cables deliver the ultimate low-friction performance. Jagwire offers two options: An ultra-slick polymer-coated cable for use in our Elite Sealed Systems with continuous housing/liners, or a highly polished, uncoated cable that can be used with any housing and lubricant. These Elite level cables deliver incredibly accurate, smooth performance.
