Far and Near has been producing colored hoods for over five years now for all three major components manufacturers. Each hood set is closely matched to the original manufacturers hood by producing unique rubber compounds and replicating texture and shapes. This all adds up to the best feeling hoods we've experienced.
The SRAM Red / Force 22 Brake Hoods are designed for all model years of the SRAM 22 mechanical groupo. They won't work with the hydraulic models.
Far and Near highly recommends removing your levers from your bars and installing the hoods from the back of the lever. This prevents the lever from cutting the hood as it's slid over the front of the lever. We've found that using a mild soap solution helps lubricate during installation and dries tacky keeping the grip in place. Another good option is hairspray but this dries faster.
