LOOK Cycle announced a new track-specific version of their Keo Blade Carbon Ceramic pedal. With improved stiffness and a new control roller for cleat retention, they’re said to offer all of the security you’re used to from straps, in a lighter, more aerodynamic package.
LOOK Cycle Keo Blade Carbon Ceramic Track Edition pedals
While the Keo Blade Carbon Ceramic pedal isn’t entirely new, the special Track Edition is. Launched with their T20 track bike for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the new pedal claims to offer all of the reassuring, secure feeling you love about traditional track pedals (with straps), but with greatly improved power transfer.
The basic DNA of the pedal is similar to the non-track version, but LOOK reports that a special control roller adjusts the pedal opening, and also triggers the release of your cleat/shoe in the event of a fall.
LOOK says that the complete weight for pedals and cleats is 15% less than pedals with straps – and they’re more aerodynamic.
The Track Edition pedals are compatible with either the standard Keo cleat (left), or Keo Grip cleat (right). You can get your hands on a pair now for €249.90
