Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Made by SRAM, came in a SRAM box, and fit PERFECTLY over my SRAM RED (2010) levers.
Here is some advice for installation: - Turn the hood upside down and pour some rubbing alcohol on the inside. - Then roll the hood around in circles until the alcohol covers the entire interior of the hood. - Shake out the excess alcohol. - Slip hood over the levers with the levers attached to the bars. Make sure you slip them over the correct side. The alcohol will dry up quickly, provide a light amont of tackiness when dry, and will not introduce any rust issues on the levers like water would. - The hood should slip over like a glove, without stretching.
Do this once or twice a year, more if you have white hoods. There is no excuse for dirty bar tape and hoods. It's cheap and simple to replace.
SRAM hoods tend to split at the seam it you pull them back too much. These are replacement hoods. They don't do anything about the splitting issue, these split too over time, but what's a person to do. I have not tried Hoodz, so I don't know if they are better.
Perfect in every way -- just like new. Use alcohol to douse/wet the inside of the hoods to ease their slipping on over the brake/shift levers.
