Gruppo Bici has become the U.S. importer of Axevo colored replacement brake hoods for road bike brakes.  Colored rubber hoods (as well as OE replacements) are available for Campagnolo 9-11 speed, Shimano 105, Dura-Ace 7800 and 7900, and Ultegra, and SRAM Force, Rival and Red controls and are available in seven colors: blue, celeste, green, pink, red, white and yellow. Custom colors are also available for clubs and teams based on a minimum order.

Axevo hoods are used in original equipment applications so the molds are the same as or identical to the manufacturer molds as are the rubber compositions. “Axevo makes no claim to enhancing the manufacturer’s brake hood so the rider will see no difference in the finish, fit or function compared to the original equipment,” D’Abria Versace states; Axevo brake hoods are made in Italy and have no branding.

Gruppo Bici has an introductory special of $29.95 through end of August, after which they’ll be $34.95 (prices include shipping).  They should have them in stock later this week.
