Flexible outboard cables for tilting?

To facilitate tilting motor with a 360 degree service loop need to get longer throttle and tranny cables for outboard on boat I just got. Wondering if any cables brands are more flexible than others to work better in this configuration?
thanks

Their specifications usually state the minimum bending radius

I've found Uflex's MachZero cables to be the most flexible and smoothest operation with bends. https://uflexusa.ultraflexgroup.com/...ol-cables.html
