Gruppo Bici has become the U.S. importer of Axevo colored replacement brake hoods for road bike brakes. Ã‚Â Colored rubber hoods (as well as OE replacements) are available forÃ‚Â 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. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Axevo makes no claim to enhancing the manufacturerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s brake hood so the rider will see no difference in the finish, fit or function compared to the original equipment,Ã¢â‚¬Â DÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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). Ã‚Â They should have them in stock later this week.
