These are quite pricey for a pair of rubber hoods (~INR 2.2k at time of purchase) and rip VERY EASILY, do NOT try to install them like you would normal hoods, instead make sure you take the levers off your bike and install these hoods from the back of the levers - this may require taking your brake/gear cables out if you have ones that internally route through your handlebars so keep that in mind. They have a terrible design flaw which is they have channels that run along the hoods underneath (which is the biggest stress point when pulling these over the hoods - so they tear VERY easily).
If Shimano stock hoods are available, suggest getting those instead.
thanks for sharing your experience, we have not had these complaints from other cyclists. we will share this with the brand, is there anything else we can do to resolve this?
