The 785 HUEZ RS is a bicycle with a sleek design, engineered and conceived to always be lighter and more efficient in the mountains.
The comfort on the bicycle is provided not only by the use of specific fibers, but also by the adoption of a 27.2mm HR carbon seatpost (provides flexibility). This diameter is the optimal size which allows for the greatest amount of flex while assuring dependable tensile strength. LOOK designers and engineers, above all, wanted to create the lightest bicycle possible with optimum characteristics by concentrating primarily on its efficiency.
The new 785 HUEZ RS is a concentration of pure technology without any frills. Its design and size and shape of its tubes have been optimized to obtain the best attainable inertia, making the construction a 5.9 kg bicycle for the general public possible.
NANO LAYER CONSTRUCTION
With over 30 years of carbon technology know-how, skill and expertise, LOOK engineers, in their manufacturing facility, ultra-precisely define the position and orientation of each of the thin layers of carbon used to create their tubes.
OPTIMIZED INERTIA SECTION
To create the 785 HUEZ RS, we began by studying and improving the shape of all of the tubes. Optimizing the shape requires defining the design that provides the maximum inertia for each tube, that is to say, to choose the optimal length, size and shape that produces the best stiffness-to-weight ratio.
We therefore, opted for a sleek and sophisticated design based on precise research, entirely focused upon the search for efficiency and performed by our engineers, to create an ultralight bicycle with the best possible characteristics. A tube sidewall thickness of 0.6 mm was ultimately chosen.
ULTRA HIGH MODULUS CARBON
Once the optimal length, size and tube thickness have been determined, the next step is to establish the ideal carbon composition to achieve our objective, the creation of the best bicycle made for climbing. To accomplish this, the recipe is similar to that of gastronomic cuisine. To make the best dish, one needs ingredients of the highest quality. LOOK has therefore selected only superior carbon fibers, including the finest of the high modulus, to create the HUEZ 785 RS. We have chosen five different types of carbon, each one selected for its outstanding quality in its category.
