"LEAVE THE ROADS BEHIND."
The 765 GRAVEL RS is the child prodigy that, from a very young age, has benefitted from all of LOOK’s expertise! Its secret ambition - to become the master of the garage, as it ultimately wants to replace every other bike.
This bike is ultra-versatile, designed for hybrid practice. Within the wider GRAVEL family, there are 3 trends emerging: the racing, ultra and travel. The ability to make use of off-road trails constitutes an infinite extension to its playing field. Thanks to the Internet and the community effect, planning an impromptu weekend trip is quick and easy. Itineraries are discussed, designed and shared.
The light and sturdy 765 GRAVEL RS bike is a genuine innovation when it comes to pushing your limits and experiencing adventure! Cycling needs to reinvent itself, to open itself up to new possibilities. Those who practice the sport need to be surprised, to experience a change of scenery and most of all, to be challenged both physically and mentally.

Drawing on our experience in working with carbon, we developed a unique layup exclusively for the 765 GRAVEL RS. By optimizing fiber orientations and a specific combination of carbon - 35% HM, 40% IM, 10% HR & 15% specific fibre - we were able to maximze pedaling performance, while preserving ride comfort.
Since LOOK’s beginning in the cycling world, at a time when metal was king, our material of choice has always been carbon. For over 30 years, we have developed - within our own factories - a unique expertise and an extensive know-how in carbon fiber technologies to achieve highly-specific and performance-oriented properties.
Clearance for 700x40 or 650x2.1 tires. The stock 700x40mm tires provide a balance bewteen road performance and off-road comfort and traction. 50% road use, 50% off-road 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.
"The limits placed on your road only trips will soon disappear with the 765 GRAVEL RS."
The frame features mounting points for up to 4 water bottles (3 inside the main triangle and one on the bottom of the downtube) as well as a bento style box on the top tube. With multiple water bottle mounts riders can dial in their optimal setup.
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.
