DA7900 proofs from our mold will be arriving on Thursday afternoon next week. We are doing two small sample runs in Bordeaux Gold and Paris Pink and those parts will go on bikes for testing to make certain that the fit is perfect and the function is just what we want, and then we will be able to go into production some time shortly after that. End of June – finally – should be when the parts become available. A batch of the pink hoods will be heading across the pond so that we can finally get the Rapha-Condor team supplied with Hudz for their race and training bikes. 

We’ll post shots of the new DA7900 Enhancement Brake Hoods as soon as we have them installed on some levers… They’re gonna be sweet…

Also of note: The Whitman College Cycling Team tallied up their third National Title in six years just up in Fort Collins, CO a month ago. I got an email and letter from the team letting us know about their success. Whitman is part of Hudz’ open sponsorship for collegiate teams (we will sponsor any collegiate team that asks for it and provide pro-deal pricing for all members) and we have been very happy to be able to supply them this year, and hopefully for years to come.
