Not as hard to install as noted in an earlier review. My park cable cutters cut the cable without issue. I used electrical wire strippers to cut the plastic cover over the wire braid to make room for the olive at the location where it sits. Took about 10 minutes per side to cut to length and reinstall after initial install.
Not sure there is benefit to these cables. I have the regular cables on my trail bike, but got the braided cables for the Dh bike. Don't really notice any difference between the cable types in terms of performance.
Almost impossible to install the brass olive over the stainless line. Once cut the stainless strands fray badly and are impossible to stop from doing so. I used the recommended cutters without success. I tried a cut off wheel and that frayed them too. Took them to a race car buddy who uses only stainless braided lines on his car and he couldn't do it either. Now the line is too short for my new frame (needed the 1600mm length). At this point it is in the hands of HOPE's customer service department while I wait and see if they can make up a line for me. Love my M4's but this hydraulic line is just ridiculous.
