    Thanks,

    I have never seen white hoods for sram. I love my black ones. Are you European or something.....too much white can blind you.

    Will be keeping my eye on this thread.
    I too would be interested.
    I currently have a white saddle and tape. Would like white hoods to match.



    I am sure I saw a pic of white hoods somewhere.
    Maybe in one of these threads???

    I posted this in the Save some Weight forum, but not a-lot of people see that forum.

    BTP sells white foam hoods. I've heard they wear out pretty quickly, but there now you know where to find them.

    Directly from SRAM.
    Currently the white (and red) hoods are only being given to sponsored teams and athelets but they may sell them in the future.

    QBP will be stocking both white and red hoods with same color bar tape. It appears that they wont be available for another couple weeks.

    White hoods and tape - BR5925
    Red hoods and tape - BR5926

    They also still have black if you just need replacement ones.

    white weenies

    Yeah I've seen those white hoods alright, and I can help wanting them, BUT I should know better. I used to have my fixed gear set up for road winter training and threw on a pair of old shimano 105 levers for the front brake and just to have the hoods. They were white. I would clean them with bleach wipes and they would look so sweet with white tape, then I'd wash my hands, then touch them: dirty. Always dirty. I'm a somewhat of a neat freak and even I gave up cleaning them. All the little texture grooves in them sucked in grease the way your hands do when they are dry and you're working on your bike. Back in the day in the tour (Lemond and Indurain years) guys rode with white hoods and tape but they got new ones every freakin' day. Are the SRAM hoods sweet, yes no doubt. Just be honest with yourself about how they look after that first mid-week world championships!

    I bet you could dye the white ones with RIT dye. Interesting test to do.

    Hudz does show white hoods for Dura Ace as part of their product line.

    I heard the texture of Hudz is pretty awful compared to the regular material from SRAM & Shimano. Anyone tried them?
