E-765 OPTIMUM

E-765 OPTIMUM

 

ALL OF LOOK’S DNA, WITH A LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA

What is the first e-road by LOOK? This is a bike that is the result of our mastery of carbon, which allows us to offer a frame that is both lightweight and durable, manufactured in our own production facilities. This is also a bike that has just continued a story that has been written at the highest level ever since our first pedal strokes with Bernard Hinault. Lastly, it is a bike that has been designed by cyclists, for cyclists – and that means for all cyclists.

 

Because you may wish to follow your friends down a mountain pass without having all of the necessary skills. Because you were champion one day, and now simply want to recuperate. Because there is a tendency to forget that cycling is first and foremost a leisure activity that should go hand-in-hand with pleasure – it is for all of these reasons, not to mention any personal reasons you might have, that LOOK has created the E-765 OPTIMUM, a genuine LOOK assisted by an integrated FAZUA motor.

 

Barely any heavier than a traditional road bike, the astonishing performance of your first LOOK electric bike will have you back on the steepest slopes. And best of all: even Bernard Hinault has succombed to its charms.

Technologies

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.

TECHNOLOGIES – ELECTRIC ASSISTANCE

FAZUA motor: More compact. More detachable. More autonomous.

 

Why did we choose FAZUA technology?

The German company, an expert in the development of the electric motor since 2013, has developed the most complete motor currently available on the market. To combine this motor unit with the Made By LOOK carbon frame seemed an obvious course of action ever since the early design stages.

DETACHABLE BATTERY AND MOTOR

 

A detachable motor and battery only make sense if you can remove them from your bike for a lighter ride whenever you want. Designed as a single unit, the FAZUA electrical assistance used in the E-765 OPTIMUM allows for the option of leaving the electrical unit at home.

CONNECTED BIKE

 

The free application offered by FAZUA converts the E-765 OPTIMUM into a connected bike. Connected directly to the battery, track its life and charge status, as well as its temperature. Including navigation and GPS tracking, the app can offer several routes to a chosen destination, stating the drop and the distance that can be covered based on the battery charge status.
Analyse your journeys in real time using the speedometer, and after your session, by consulting a summary of your efforts.

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 E-765 OPTIMUM 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.
