The hoods are available for nearly all Campagnolo, Shimano and SRAM levers, from 9-speed to 11-speed. They come in 11 colors, including Black, Blue, Celeste, Green, Green Fluo, Pink, Pink Fluo, Red, Red Italian Racing, White and Yellow.

The hoods are made in Italy of a natural silicone elastomer and the company said they offer superior fit and finish and "are the longest-lasting brake hoods available in the consumer market." The company said the hoods last 50,000 miles. 

Ciclofficina Scagliarini, the cycling division of G. Scagliarini & Co., began making colored brake hoods in 2011 as an original equipment manufacturer. The colored hoods became available in the aftermarket late last year. 

Scagliarini colored hoods have been used for the leaders' bikes at the Giro d'Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta a España every year since 2011, the company said.

The hoods retail for $35, and most models are in stock now at Italian Bicycle Group N.A. (IBGNA). The distributor sells exclusively to IBDs and offers accessories, bikes, clothing, components, frames and forks, nutrition and tools. The company can be contacted at info@italianbicyclegroup.com or visit italianbicyclegroup.com.
