Featherlight future for Venhill
- All cables now made to the top-of-the-range Featherlight specification
In future all Venhill cables will be made to the company's top-of-the-range Featherlight specification, following a surge in demand for the British manufacturer's highest quality products from customers around the world.
Founded 40 years ago to supply motocross racers with reliable replacement cables, Venhill has a lengthy association with the sport and sponsor the current European MX2 champions, Monster Energy Bike It Yamaha, and Buildbase BMW Motorrad in British Superbikes. Venhill also lists a huge range of applications for modern and classic road bikes, as well as offering a bespoke service, making cables to the customer's precise requirements.
Featherlight brake, clutch and throttle cables are developed from OEM items and are designed to deliver improved performance and durability along with smoother action.
Made with Teflon liners for low friction, the clutch, throttle and choke/decompressor cables have stainless steel inner wires (for minimum stretch), while the brake cables use galvanised steel wire for its strong yet flexible properties. All Venhill cables are ‘Bird-caged’ - a special process applied to the end of an inner cable wire that allows solder to penetrate the weave of the cable, making the bond with the nipple much stronger.
Venhill Cables are produced in a range of colours, including black, blue, green, yellow, orange and red, with a choice of fittings in aluminium or zinc-plated steel. Dealer workshop kits are also available that contain everything needed to replace/upgrade approximately ten motorcycle/scooter cables and come housed in a durable tool box.
