NPC & cable routing

NCP – Neutral Centric Position

For the benefit of a cable routing and length being independent of the rear frame damping position, the shifting cable and the rear brake hose are led directly through the centre of the main swing arm bearing. 

Internal cable routing

It looks clean and is technically superior. Internal cable routing protects the cables and brake hoses against impacts from the outside and enables the NCP design as described on the left.
