Brake cables are used for braking on a bicycle with cable-pull brakes the cable is known as Bowden cable. Bicycle brake cables have two applications front and rear braking. It consists of two parts an inner cable of braided stainless-steel wire and an outer cable housing. Brakes use helical housing which consists of a tightly wrapped helix of steel wire lined on both inside and outside by plastic coating. The outer cable housing is coated with polymer or plastic coating which protects the wire from corrosion and dust. The brakes work by transmitting force using a combination of tension on the inner cable and compression to the brake housing. Usually, the cable's tension can be adjusted using an inline hollow bolt that lengthens or shortens the cable housing relative to the fixed anchor point. Lengthening the housing tightens the cable and shortening the housing loses the cable. Bicycle brake cables require time to time oiling and greasing to ensure long life span and safety. Moreover, flexibility is one of the key parameters while selecting a bicycle brake cable to maintain proper functioning and durability.
