Technologies

• AERODYNAMIC FRAME

The L96 design is based on the legendary 496. This new development aims to optimise the aerodynamics, improve the power transmission, and reduce the weight whilst retaining the fantastic qualities of stiffness and efficiency that have made a success of the 496. To achieve these objectives, on the one hand LOOK uses its carbon matrix, and on the other adapts to the track the integration concept that has already been proven on road and MTB. Crankset, stem and handlebars have been developed by LOOK to work perfectly together and provide geometry and stiffness solutions minimising the total weight.

• ZED TRACK CRANKSET

LOOK are revolutionising the speed world with this track version of its ZED one-piece carbon crankset. Our innovative manufacturing procedures allow us to construct the first hollow structure carbon one piece pedal, with an aerodynamic profile the chain ring positioning itself continuously with the crankset for a tenfold power gain. Twice as rigid as the reference track crankset, it explodes all stiffness records for a weight of only 450 gms. It also brings the TRILOBE technology to the track, which allows the crank length to be varied by turning a nut (size 1 = 165 / 167.5 / 170 mm - size 2 = 72.5 / 175 / 177.5 mm). To gain yet more power, the bearings have been optimised. Compatible with all pedals. The Kéo Power notably integrates perfectly due to a radio housing at the end of the cranks. Finally, nuts are integrated into the crankset to ease chainring installation.

• ONE PIECE CARBON FORK

Different types of carbon fibre are used to make the fork: HR, IM and HM in order to obtain the best compromise between stiffness, flexibility and handling, whilst controlling the weight of the fork, which remains below the 500 gm limit.

The frontal / lateral stiffness ration has been developed to gain steering accuracy. The fork is offset for an exceptional air penetration coefficient and LOOK has worked on all aspects to have the best aerodynamic sections within the 3:1 ratio imposed by the UCI. LOOK has also developed a new interface with the stem permitting continuous adjustment without loss of stiffness. Available in 3 sizes and 2 dropout offsets to retain identical behaviour in all sizes.

• ONE PIECE COMPRESSED CARBON HOLLOW STEM

LOOK uses high-pressure compressed carbon technology to optimise the mechanical resistance without losing stiffness. A new system (LOOK patent) permits continuous angular adjustment by friction cone so as to have the finest height adjustment whatever the stem length. The stem cap is completely integrated to conserve the aerodynamic qualities. Available in 18 sizes, from 55 mm to 140 mm every 5 mm.

• AERODYNAMIC TRACK BARS

LOOK handlebars specially developed for the track contributing to improving the bicycle’s global aerodynamics by using profiled sections and an extremely small drop. The stem is thus positioned in the continuation of the flow.

• SADDLE CLAMP

The saddle clamp is completely integrated and continuous up to the saddle rails to permit continuity of the seat tube stiffness. The system includes an extremely stiff very high-pressure compressed carbon head. Customised position: very accurate height (+/- 7 mm using spacers) and offset adjustments. Finally the angular adjustment is independent of the saddle clamping and is possible using a fine pitch screw situated in front of the forged head.
