LOOK Keo Blade Carbon Ceramic Ti
Look invented the clipless pedal in 1984. More than 30 years later, they offer unmatched reliability. The KEO BLADE CARBON CERAMIC Ti is the flagship model of Look’s road pedal range. They feature a carbon body with the carbon blade technology which bears its name, titanium spindle and ceramic bearings creating a pedal of incomparable weight and impressive aerodynamics. These pedals are designed to win.
MADE BY LOOK
Look are driven by one obsession: to provide each and every cyclist with performance products of the very highest standard. The desire to constantly improve their pedals has pushed them to explore the advantages of ceramic bearings, with the aim of making the technology accessible to a majority of cyclists.
This innovative idea is implemented in the BLADE CARBON pedal: their elite-level, top-of-the-range weapon designed for pure racing performance. The unique, patented BLADE technology is combined with the unequaled properties of ceramic bearings and LOOK’s signature power-to-weight ratio, ensuring the pedal comes straight in as a reference on the market.
THE CHOICE OF CHAMPIONS
7 UCI WORLD TOUR teams including Lotto-Soudal, Astana-Premier Tech and AG2R CITROEN LA MONDIALE have chosen the KEO BLADE CARBON to accompany them during the 2021 season.
Lightweight, aerodynamic and powerful, the pedal provides the riders with an incredible platform to keep improving and optimizing performance on the road to victory.
Every component, every ball is meticulously selected to ensure the highest level of quality and performance. The balls are precisely calibrated one by one by a machine, down to the micro-meter. They are then ordered according to size in perfectly- adapted rings, with the result that every bearing has a totally unique structure.
A long lifespan is the main advantage of ceramic bearings. Rounder and harder than traditional balls, they are less sensitive to dust or deposits and guarantee consistent, durable performance. Furthermore, ceramic is not subject to corrosion. These physical properties ensure the bearings have a lifespan 4 to 6 times longer than standard steel bearings.
Reduced friction is the best-known and most characteristic advantage of ceramic bearings. The perfectly circular shape and the hardness of the balls combined with ceramic-specific, optimized greases allows for an 18% reduction of the frictional forces applied to the bearing.
