FLEXROUTE™ and Cobra® Low Profile Cable Ties

Posted by Mark Bresnahan on Aug 27, 2014 10:23:00 AM

The Perfect Complement for Cyclists

Cobra® low profile cable ties are used to harness and bundle items, most often wires and cables, but the scope of their use is limitless. Incorporate that with the FLEXROUTE™ cable management system, and the combination is remarkable. 

Designed by Hawken Components and available from Cobra Products Inc., FLEXROUTE is a universal, durable, and simple cable management solution that secures and protects both the frame and cable. The FLEXROUTE utilizes the lowest profile nylon cable tie on the market, the Cobra low profile tie. It is easy to install and ready to perform in a wide range of environments—and cyclists, in particular, are enjoying the benefits of this winning combo.
