    Hudz Shift lever hoods

    Anyone try these in the myriad of colors offered? I just put blue ones on my SR 11 shifters and I like them. A little softer and more comfortable than the stock hoods. With the new shape to the levers and the softness of the hoods I think they are almost perfect. Plus, the colors are pretty cool.

    yes. . .

    I have a white pair on my Wilier Le Roi. I like them better than my stock Campy ones.

    I am thinking they are a little more comfortable than the originals. The softness was a definite improvement the other day on a 48 mile ride. I am going to be putting them on my other bikes soon.

    I think they just look sexier because it's Super Record Eleventy.

    I have white ones on my SRAM Red.
    They seem good and I like that they have a moulded section for your fingers in the front.
    However, I am not sure that they fit the levers quite as well as the originals.

    It appears that the fluting on the top side of stock Campagnolo hoods is missing on those.

    I believe the Far and Near hoods still have that.

    Are those available for Shimano stuff?
    Before you criticize someone walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them you'll be a mile away & you'll have their shoes.

    Yes, just go take a look at their website and take a look at what they have. Tons of different fits and colors.

    Man, now I have to get the gray hudz. Right when I'm almost finished completing anything I'm ever gonna do with my bike, I read this thread....

    What's the difference between the original vs. the soft grip? In other words, is it like the Fizik microtex vs. soft touch, where the soft touch is harder to keep clean?

    No problems keeping them clean. I have 3 60+ mile rides on it and just a little 409 and it cleans up just fine.

    Kytyree, I added a side shot of the bike. I was really happy to find out they won't be offering Blue this year in that frame. So they made it for one year and it was a special order to get it in the U.S. I would be curious to find out how many made it to the U.S.

    rward, thanks for posting those, that's sharp very well done. I like the Look cages and stem as well.


    I like the colored hoods, they're a neat way to add some color. Though some of the better uses I've seen for them are using white or the lighter brown to give a bit of a retro look on the right frame.

    Yes for both 7800 and 7900.
    The Shimano ones are a lot more pain in the arse to install but definately more comfortable than the OEM especially the 7800.....

    I was going to say the same thing. I have a brand new SL3 but I will still drool over the Moots for sure.

    Did you order the regular ones or the "super grip" ones?

    Cheers to both of you for your positive comments.
    Not sure which ones I have and only just realised from reading this thread that there are 2 styles.
    I purchased mine on ebay and they were listed as "Hudz Enhancement Brake Hoods".
