765 Gravel RS

765 GRAVEL RS

 

NEW PLAYGROUND

Think back to that rocky track you saw on the side of the mountain. Wait impatiently for those speed bumps on the tarmac, which are calling out to you… The limits placed on your road only trips will soon disappear with the 765 GRAVEL RS: accelerate on the road as you see fit, head off the beaten track as soon as the opportunity presents itself.

 

The Look expertise and research that has gone into the carbon frame make this Gravel – a versatile bike – sufficiently rigid and lightweight to perform effectively on the road. Yet it is also sufficiently solid and forgiving to become your new companion on your all-terrain adventures. This is THE carbon hybrid gravel bike that will help you to find your new balance between road racing, mountain biking, cyclocross or urban riding.

Technologies

WIDE WHEEL ARCH

 

Fitted with 700 x 37 mm gravel wheels as standard, these wide, durable and slightly spiked tyres offer versatility, achieving a balance between effective road performance and all-terrain shock absorption. For 50% road use, 50% track use.

 

Capable of accommodating other types of wheel and tyre:

 

• Road-type wheels: 700 x 28 or 32 mm. Fitted with this type of tyre cross-section, with a prescribed pressure of between 4 and 6 bars, it can rival the performance of a bike designed exclusively for the road. 100% road use

 

• 650B x 2.1 mountain bike-style wheels. By reducing the diameter of the rim, a wider tyre of up to 54 mm can be mounted. All-terrain then takes the upper hand, for 70% track, 30% road use.

DIRECT DRIVE CONCEPT: STURDY COCKPIT

 

Made of aluminium, this integrated stem is designed so as to be rigid and lightweight. It echoes the forms of the frame and ensures excellent bike stability.

 

The Direct Drive concept enables the simultaneous development of the steering components (fork, fork pivot, steering socket, stem and handlebars) to ensure that the rigidities are compatible. There is no apparent loss of rigidity in the cockpit, thus providing a real sense of security and reliable performance

3D WAVE STAYS: ENHANCED COMFORT

 

The stays are designed with 2 waves, functioning as deflection points that enable a 15% increase in the natural flexibility of the carbon.

 

Furthermore, by flattening the tube its vertical flexibility can be improved while increasing its lateral rigidity. This tube shape at the rear of the bike filters shocks, even at high speed. It increases the traction, that is, the contact between the wheel and the ground, so that the rider can maintain his course when faced with oncoming obstacles.

 

3D WAVE thus enables the achievement of much superior vibration damping levels, without any increase in weight.

Bottle cages: ready for adventure

Up to 12 bottle cage inserts. Select the ideal mounting points based on how you ride and your specific needs.

 

Position the bottles as low as possible to optimise the bike’s centre of gravity.

SPORTS ENDURANCE GEOMETRY

 

The position of the steering socket has been designed for taking on technical trails, and to facilitate a comfortable seat position over long distances.

 

UCI-certified, it’s up to you whether you want to ride cyclo-cross, gravel tracks or paved roads.

CARBON CORE

DESIGNED & MANUFACTURED BY LOOK

 

Since LOOK’s beginning in the bicycle world when metals were king, our material of choice has always been carbon. For over 30 years LOOK has developed in its own factories a unique expertise and a vast know-how in the carbon field to reach specific desired properties.

 

Once the optimal shapes had been created, our engineers work on the processes and on the carbon lay-up for each areas of the bike in a very precise manner in order to achieve our goal : the creation of a super fast bike that is not only fast by being aerodynamic but also light and stiff, all while offering superb traction.

 

Carbon lay-up for us is key, it’s about selecting for each location the right fibers, right orientations, right thicknesses ( number of plys ), right reinforcements when necessary. For example, the bottom bracket area has to resist higher forces than the head tube does, the same goes for each part of the frame and fork, this is one aspect in which LOOK’s expertise makes a huge difference.

STIFFNESS – WEIGHT – TRACTION

 

The new 765 GRAVEL RS is made with a mix of different carbon fibres. We combine these fibres to optimize the different performance parameters.

 

HM : High Modulus

 

« High-end » fibers. Their stiffness rating is very high, about double that of HR. These fibers are used wisely because they are more brittle. HM fibers allow added stiffness with the lowest weight penalty.

 

IM : Intermediate Modulus

 

They have good resistance and fall somewhere between HM and HR of which they are a good complement.

 

HR : High Resistance

 

High resistance fibers are less stiff in elongation but can resist deformations and impacts better, they are very useful in high stress areas and also in areas where controlled deformation is beneficial to the ride quality of the bike.
