Back in the mid-late 90’s I had an ink blue Zaskar and I remember fitting brake and gear cable kits on it that had yellow coated inners.
I seem to remember that were by Clarks or Fibrax or someone like that, and they were sold as Kevlar or PTFE coated or something.
Does anyone know what they are, and are they still available?

They weren’t the Gore cables. Some friends of mine had those, but I couldn’t afford them.
I seem to remember that the Gore cables had a yellow sleeve that fitted over the inner cable which then went inside the outer. All a bit of a faff if you ask me.

KCNC makes them in colors, but I have not seen yellow yet.
