    Different hoods for 2012 SRAM Red

    I know SRAM offers replacement hoods for 2012 Red in 3 colors, but does anyone know of any aftermarket companies that make different colors? I'm looking for orange in particular.

    Thanks!

    pay attention to the OP's question. he's asking specifically about 2012 Red. not 'old' Red/Force/Rival/Apex which you can indeed get pink hoods for. both SRAM and ODI (Hudz) are made in pink.

    Yep, my bad. Thanks for straightening me out. You would think I would know better considering I have a 2012 with Force/Red but not 2012 Red.

    I'm waiting for them to release the green ones from Peter Sagan's bike. It's taking forever. Don't want to settle for the white ones.

    Yes, I know Hudz makes hoods for older generation Red, but I am looking for the newer redesigned 2012 Red. I have seen a couple of pro bikes with different colors. Maybe I have to turn pro and win a bunch of races for SRAM to make me some orange ones.

    SRAM rep at GFNJ said they should be released by Christmas, but I'm not holding my breath on that.

    read my posts...i KNOW that's what you're looking for. the other guys were posting about the availability of the 'old' style hoods in different colors, and i was letting them know what you were looking for. reading comprehension ftw.

    I'm one of those guys...
    I was told by Hudz that they did have them.
    Got them and guess what....they don't fit.
    D'oh!

    Clearly an issue of the Hudz people needing to get a clue.

    You can ask Far & Near (no pun). They have 2013 Di2 ultegra, but I don't see any NEW sram.

    OEM Sram Black, Red, and White is currently available for Sram Red 2012 shifters. The other fun colors should be available early next year from what some people have been saying.

    Any Sram dealer if they have them in stock or they can order them. A couple stores have had them locally in the 3 colors but I am waiting for the green ones. RED Bar Tape and Hoods | SRAM

    Ebay has quite a few selling them now too if you don't have a dealer and want only the hoods and not the tape too.

    Yep. I've got the white ones on my bike right now. Pretty nice for SRAM hoods, actually.
