Replacement hoods for 105 5700
My original shifter hoods had become sticky due to eight years of use and abuse. The swap is pretty straight forward. You pull the old hoods over the shifters; the new hoods are installed in the reverse fashion. I ran my hoods under hot water for a minute or two to make the rubber a bit softer and the water lubricates the hood a bit when putting it on. I've seen several other buyers complain about receiving the wrong item. Looking at the Shimano box I received, there are sixteen different varieties of hoods. You have to buy the right hood for your shifters.
Original replacement parts for Shimano STI levers, they're a perfect fit. Tip: use a generous amount of liquid hand sanitizer on the inside of the hood as well as on the parts your pulling this hood over. Also, warm the hoods up in some hot water just prior, to ease in stretching it over the brake structure.
Not much to review. They fit good. 2015 Shimano 105 11spd shifter/brake levers.
Super bien... Super satisfecho como todas las cosas de shimano... Excelente producto
It doesn't fit my bike and I have the 105 current gen.
Fits very snug on my bike, no sliding while riding. I love them!
Put these on my Shimano 5500 (same as Ultegra 6500) shifters since those are out of production and fits fine... Perfect on grip part and just a bit too high on the top area where your hand does not go so it only looks off but no big deal
They didn't fit. There is a particular shape to the front most edge (at the shifter head) that doesn't match the original so they don't fit in place.
Was able to remove them and install new ones (Without removing whole lever mechanism from handlebars) using a little bit of alcohol based hand sanitizer as lubricant. Great fit!
Showed up quickly and fit my 6700 series Shimano 105 shifters perfectly.
Good deal, quick delivery.
Unfortunately there are subtle differences in the older 105 hoods. The ones I received were close, but do not fit. A $20 education.
