Giant Peloton Superlite

This is my new '94 (I think) Giant, I got it for a decent price and it is more or less mint except missing shifter hoods and some cosmetic rust on some bolts and spots of it coming through the chrome on the headset cups.
It rides really nicely and has some really nice details, the seat cluster is super tidy and the fork crown is also quite neat. It weighs a bit over 9kg so doesn't quite earn the name but not bad for a ten year old bike.
I can't find much info about these bike on t'interweb so if anyone knows about their history, where they sat in the range etc it would be great to hear it.

Does anyone know if these shifters (the up and downshift levers are one piece of plastic) take the same hoods as the later pointy top ergos?

Please excuse the photo quality, I crashed with the phone in my back pocket and cracked the lens.
