Current-production Rene Herse brakes use a dedicated straddle cable that allows the anchor points to swivel. This reduces the stresses on the cable, making it less likely to fray and allowing for a thinner, more flexible straddle cable. The Rene Herse Cantilever Straddle Cable is intended only for Rene Herse cantilever brakes.
