The Linear Zipline uses a whole new housing technology that makes it as strong as all the other non-Odyssey Linear cables on the market today. The new technology has allowed us to remove the traditional mesh look that you find with other Linear cables. It has also allowed us to offer this cable at a price that is a 1/3 cheaper than other cables.This cable comes pre-cut to a BMX length of 40″, so you won’t need to cut the cable at any point. Just unpack it and install. No cable cutters required.
