There are not many options for cords with plug caps in the AfterMarket, so here are my impressions of the replacement from TAYLOR. To be honest, it's just a cord, so I can't tell any difference in performance when riding. However, you can tell the difference in the product. The cord part is smooth and shiny, and as a silicon cord, it does not get dirty easily. (Although it is hard to remove it.) It is like a Japanese manufacturer, and I have a good feeling that the product is well made.
