If you’re looking to secure a cable to an odd-shaped tube, prevent frame damage from slippery zip-ties, or accommodate a dropper post cable on a bike without guides the Flexroute Cable Management System has you covered. Hawken Components and Cobra Products Inc. have teamed up to offer you a cable securing solution that provides a few advantages over the old traditional zip/cable tie.
The Flexroute rubber clamps affix cables to any shape of tube on your frame or fork with no risk of crushing the housing. They’re also designed to conform to tubes and not slip, preventing damage to your frame from a housing or bare zip-tie shifting around.

The Flexroute clamp is made from a durable, weather resistant rubber compound that’s commonly used for power tool grips and outdoor equipment. The clamp features a hole for your cable to pass through that eliminates the chance of crushing the housing when installing a zip-tie alone. There will be two sizes available, one to fit 3/16” to 1/4” cable diameters, and the XL model for cables between 1/4” and 3/8”. The clamp itself is universally sized to fit top and down tubes, but the rubber could easily be trimmed to prevent overlap on smaller tubing.
Installing the Flexroute clamp is easy, with no disassembly of cables required. Just position the clamp where its needed and snap it over the cable housing, slip a 5mm wide cable tie through its slot, then tighten it down and trim the excess. The clamp’s flexible rubber allows the cable tie to get a firm grip on any shaped tube without slipping, and the tie sits in a recessed track to keep it centered in the clamp.
While any zip tie could be used with these clamps, Cobra claims their Low Profile cable ties are the slimmest on the market and better yet, they feature a hand-friendly closure that doesn’t leave a sharp end sticking out like traditional cable/zip ties. We’ve all sliced a hand on those, and it stings!
The Flexroute Cable Management System can be purchased in packs of 5, 10 or 40 clamps (40 packs include a bag of Cobra Low-Profile zip ties). The clamps are black, but custom colors are available with a minimum order quantity.
