Look Keo Blade Carbon Road Pedals
The KEO BLADE CARBON pedal model has a Chromoly+ axle and stainless steel bearings for extreme reliability. In addition to its weight, its power-to-weight ratio is the best in class on the market today. Light, aerodynamic and powerful, this clipless pedal has all you need to take it to the next level.

OPTIMIZED SPINDLE: MORE POWER TRANSFER AND RELIABILITY
Look have completely redesigned the spindle of the new CARBON BLADE PEDALS.
They have built their pedals around an oversized axle and spindle that passes through internal roller and bearings.
These are located directly under the pedal platform and saves approximately 2 watts at 100 rpm.
They have increased the distance between the roller and needle bearings by 25%. This provides more rigidity along the entire length of the spindle. And as a consequence, improved power transmission.
Look have improved Weather resistance by 120% for even more reliability and longevity. To accomplish this, Look updated the endplug with an o-ring washer and has also been equipped with an internal, double-lipped seal.
LOOK axles are only approved after a rotational test of 2 million cycles at 100 rpm. They do this with a load of 90 kg on the center of the pedal and an eccentric rotation (which creates stress on each revolution). This is equivalent to a sprint by André GREIPEL of 1700 watts at 100 rpm for 333 hours! This test is much more demanding than the current standard, the ISO 4210
To meet the demands of the most demanding cyclists, Looks pedal-cleat system must allow efficient power transfer thanks to a broad and rigid platform.
The platform of the CARBON BLADE CERAMIC is fitted with a 67mm-wide stainless steel plate. This optimises the cleat/pedal contact areas, regardless of pedaling angle.
With a surface area of 700 mm², the CARBON BLADE CERAMIC offers an optimized contact platform for an efficiency and power transfer that is unmatched on today’s market.
As a result of all this it’s weight / power ratio positions it well above the competition
BODY AND BLADE CARBON TECHNOLOGY
Using a carbon body lightens the weight of the pedal. It also provides an additional gain in stiffness for improved power transfer.
BLADE technology is a major technical innovation in the history of the automatic pedal.
It’s Benefits Include:
- ULTRA-SECURE WHEN CLIPPING IN AND OUT
