Like many of the technologically advanced products of today (your carbon fiber bicycle frameset for example), our synthetic Power Cordz are a high-performance product and are not designed to last forever. Power Cordz have a lifespan of five years from the date they are manufactured. Although they are proven to last much longer we recommend you replace your Cordz accordingly. Each set of Cordz have an expiration date printed on the package, please take notice and record this date. Five years is a long time to safely run any type of brake cable so we feel this is an adequate life for the performance you receive with Power Cordz.
Be sure to check your Cordz before to be sure they are in safe working order. If you notice the nylon casing is worn or if the fibers are cut replace them immediately.
