"Power delivery is smooth and unobtrusive."
The E-765 Optimum is the result of years of dedication and attention to detail enabling us to create a frame, which is both lightweight and durable. Manufactured in our own production facilities, our story builds on the first impactful pedal strokes of Bernard Hinault with LOOK.
LOOK has created this masterful E-765 Optimum, integrated with a FAZUA motor. The benefits allow the rider to experience a more leisurely ride, instead of the challenges of a more competitive journey. Capturing the desires of this segment of riders was paramount to the creation and development of this bike. Perfect for the former champion that wants to continue riding and enjoying the sport, or for those that simply want to experience the world by bike. The E-765 will fit your needs.
Only slightly heavier than a traditional road bike, the astonishing performance of the E-765 Optimum will have you out scaling the steepest slopes and rolling for endless miles. This comfortable ride will intoxicate you with its charms and capabilities.
The electric motor is revolutionizing the world of mountain biking and soon the road biking world, as well.
Thanks to this innovation, electric-assist bikes offer riders of all levels the incomparable experience to enjoy the freedom and joy of cycling. Effortless when in full-electric mode, LOOK’s E-765 OPTIMUM opens up an entirely new world to riders. On climbs, the electrical assistance enables the bike to accelerate to, and sustain speeds up to 20 mph.
Drawing on our extensive experience working with carbon, we’ve developed an unrivaled formula dedicated exclusively for the E-765 OPTIMUM. Thanks to the ultra-precise fiber orientations and specific combinations of various types of carbon - we found the sweet spot. By combining 25% HM, 31% IM, 31% HR and 13 % specific fiber, we were able to maximize pedaling performance, while preserving ride comfort.
Since our early days in the performance cycling world, our material of choice has always been carbon. Within our own factories, we’ve developed a unique expertise and extensive know-how in carbon fiber technologies. For over 30 years, LOOK has been a leader in this arena, achieving highly-specific and performance-oriented properties.
Whether you’re looking at the profile of the E-765 OPTIMUM or head on, it’s hard to tell this is an e-bike. Stored in the downtube, with compact dimensions, the motor and battery assembly enable its sleek design. LOOK engineers constructed and tailored this carbon frame for perfect integration and weight distribution.
The low total weight produces a ride sensation that is close to that of a traditional bike. The natural ride sensation continues when the motor seamlessly disengages at 25 km/h, and transitions to unassisted pedaling. Since the motor is fully disengaged there no additional resistance to overcome, leaving you with a very familiar ride.
The handlebar mounted remote enables precise control of the electrical assistance. There are 4 control modes are available: The 0W mode lets you rely solely on your legs. The 2 intermediate modes offer power assistance up to 125 W and 250 W, and last but not least, the rocket mode can reach a maximum power assistance of 400 W.
Control your range by making use of both analog power and electrical power. An average range of 86 kilometers has been recorded for mixed use.
The German company Fazua has been an expert in the development of the electric motors since 2013. They have taken that experience and designed the most complete and comprehensive motor on the market today. The combination of LOOK’s sleek carbon frame with Fazua’s electric assist was an obvious choice since the earliest stages of design.
The detachable motor and battery give you the ability to choose how you want to ride, on any given day. Designed as a single unit, Fazua’s power plant can easily be removed and left at home for a full analog ride or kept in place to take advantage of the seamless power assist
The E-765 OPTIMUM weighs in at 13.6 kg on average. Developed by Fazua, this compact 250W motor unit drastically reduces the weight of the battery/ motor assembly. Combined with the light weight carbon, it does not exceed 4.6 kg. Adding in the Fazua drive system, it’s the lightest and most compact in its category, enabling cyclists to easily achieve assisted speeds of up to 25 km/h.
The free app offered by Fazua converts the E-765 OPTIMUM into a connected bike by pairing with the battery to track its life, charge status, as well as temperatures.
With navigation and GPS tracking, the app can offer several routes to choose from. It includes vertical challenges, and the distance that can be covered based on the battery charge status. The ability to analyze your journey in real time, or after by viewing the summary of your efforts, amounts to truly revolutionary benefits. These features let you be your own best competitor.
The stays are designed with 2 deflection points that enable a 15% increase in the natural compliance of the carbon. Furthermore, by flattening the tube its vertical movement can be improved while increasing its lateral rigidity. These uniquely shaped seat stays filter shock while increaseing traction and control on rough terrain, without increasing the frame's weight.
The integrated stem is designed to compliment the frame's aesthetic and to be both lightweight and rigid to ensure precise bike handling. The DIRECT DRIVE concept enables the simultaneous development of all steering components (fork, headset, stem and handlebars). This ensures that there is no apparent loss of rigidity in the cockpit and provides a real sense of security and performance.
