A technological marvel born to hunt elusive seconds.
The 796 Monoblade RS was born to conquer time and as such, is crafted with the precision of a master watchmaker. Every tube, frame section and design detail is meticulously honed to enhance aerodynamics with zero compromise. Through state-of-the-art tools such as digital airflow modeling (CFD) and wind tunnel tests, we relentlessly refined multiple iterations until we achieved perfection: a machine that effortlessly tames road, wind, at speed. Once you hit the road, the 796 Monoblade RS delivers superior dynamic performance and proves faster than its predecessor.
Incorporating the most complex carbon composition ever created by LOOK Cycle, the 796 MONOBLADE RS offers an exceptional weight-to-stiffness ratio. Countless tests were conducted to select the best materials and design, optimizing every minute detail of the frame and components. The use of light, stiff Ultra High Modulus fibers combined with high-strength fibers in key areas (bottom bracket, head tube, seat tube) ensures a perfect balance between responsiveness, performance, and lightness. The result is a complete bike weighing less than 9 kg (size M), capable of breathtaking speed and powerful acceleration and control against the clock.
The ergonomics of the 796 MONOBLADE RS strike a balance between performance and tunable fit. The Aergo cockpit and reversible W3T seatpost offer a vast array of straightforward adjustment options, eliminating the need to substitute parts or disconnect cables. As an essential element of any time trial bike, the carbon cockpit combines a 400mm-wide basebar/stem combo with extensions that are adjustable in length, width, height, tilt and rotation, including elbow rests. This level of precision allows you to fine-tune and optimize your position down to the millimeter, achieving unparalleled comfort and performance without compromising on lightness, reliability or the extraordinary aerodynamics of the 796 MONOBLADE RS.
Whether you’re tackling a short-distance sprint or an Ironman, every effort requires a delicate balance of power and energy management; loosing seconds to drag can’t be afforded. The 796 MONOBLADE RS is meticulously designed to deliver exceptional time trial performance while providing ideal ergonomics for long rides and diverse course profiles. The lightweight, adjustable and comfortable AERGO cockpit is complemented by strategically-placed bottle holders on the frame that enhance both aerodynamics and accessibility. Every detail is optimized, including inserts to mount an aero box on long-distance rides. Compatible with single or double chainring drivetrains, the 796 MONOBLADE RS offers the precision and efficiency of a traditional racing bike combined with exceptional aerodynamic performance.
