Look is celebrating in style for the 30th anniversary of the company’s first Tour de France victory. The year was 1986 when Greg Lemond claimed the yellow jersey on the first production carbon fiber frame. Since then, carbon has revolutionized the cycling industry. Now in 2016, Look pushes carbon fiber, and design, to the limit with the 30th anniversary edition 795 Aerolight and Keo Blade 2 pedals. Check out this unique duo after the break…
The 30th anniversary edition of the Look 795 Aerolight is offered in both a complete bike build and pure frameset option. Two additional versions of the frame are available, giving you the choice of having Look’s integrated brake system (Aerolight) or a more conventional setup (Light). All of the iterations will model a Mondrian-inspired color scheme. Sales begin for authorized Look dealers in the US & Canada this July.
The components made by Look include:
- all carbon ZED3 crankset
- E-Post 2 seatpost
- integrated Aerostem
- ADH handlebar
Sram’s eTap shifters and derailleurs provide the bike with smooth wireless shifting. Additionally the Aerolight frameset includes totally internal cable routing, while the HSC8 aero fork houses Look’s integrated brakeset. The complete build will go for $14,500 while the frame is priced at $7,900.
Being one of the first companies to spearhead clipless pedals, Look will also offer a special anniversary edition Keo Blade 2 to match the bike. Included with the pedals are 2 pairs of commemorative 30th socks. The full tech details of these Keos is below:
The pedals share a matching Mondrian paint scheme from the bottom on their carbon spring, while on top they sport a 30th anniversary badge. Posted weight per pedal is 110g, with the cleats and hardware bringing the set up to a light 288g total. The 30th anniversary pedals carry a price tag of $320 and are also available from next month.
