Great upgrade from original hoods!

I feel shimano should have recalled the original hoods as they have clearly updated them, making them far snugger and adding additional undercut hooks to hold more securly. The originals were like baggy wellies after removing once. New ones fit great, feel great. Pro tip, use hand sanitiser on the inside when fitting. Dries up naturally and avoids over stretching the rubber.
Excellent Replacement Hoods

ProsBetter quality moulding.
As others have said these are excellent replacement hoods that sit firmly in place and have a nice snug fit. These hoods are an improvement on Shimano's originals which tended to slide forward and become baggy. The new hoods have additional knobs of rubber that lock into the recesses of the shifter body and eliminate all the previous problems. After 6 months they are still looking as good as new.
Excellent - useful instructions to fit

ProsExactly what I needed
A perfect replacement part for my ripped Shinano 501 hydro disc brake lever hoods. I must learn not to crash! Tip - use some lube to get them on. Nice tight fit once they are in place.

If you have the first edition of the shimano road hydro levers you will know how awesome they are... apart from the flappy hoods!! These are perfect fitting replacements.

original hoods came loose (apparently a common issue) and these fit very snuggly. when installing, use an alcohol hand gel and they slip on more easily than getting the original ones off! Look for the GNC video on how to install.

Hi, do these hoods have the moulded projections at the back of the hoods to fit round the annoying hydraulic union on the top at the back of the shifter body?
Hi,

These hoods do indeed have all of the moulded parts require to successfully fit to the ST-RS685 levers.

Thanks.
Do These Come In Different Colours?
By
24 Jul 2016
I have been trying to find a milan lime coloured one, but so far no luck,. I have RS685 levers.
Hi, unfortunately at the moment the only colour available for the RS685 levers is Black directly from Shimano, as yet Hudz haven't produced any replacement hoods for any of the new Shimano RS levers. Regards

Are These The Correct Hoods For Shimano Ulterior Disc Brake Shifters
By
04 Feb 2016
Hi,

If it is the 11spd mechanical shifters with the hydraulic disc brakes you have, (quite often found on Ultegra level bikes) then these are indeed the correct hoods.

Thanks.
