The question I am asking is on the Shimano ST-2200 (Claris) shifter brakes. Are the actual levers made of plastic?

    If they are plastic, it's almost certainly glass-fibre reinforced and may well be both stronger and lighter than an equivalent metal part. Plastic doesn't have to mean low-quality. – David Richerby Nov 2 '18 at 17:10

Yes, plastic. All the levers on all the ST-2x00 STIs are plastic.
