Kéo Blade Carbon Pedals
The new KEO BLADE CARBON is designed to win and improve the experience with spring blade technology on click pedals. This new version is the result of the experience of many years of technical development in the Look factory and constant improvements in daily contact with the greatest cycling champions.
The new KEO BLADE CARBON is light, aerodynamic, powerful and has all the advantages you need to improve and optimise your performance until you win. That's why many cycling champions unanimously chose the KEO BLADE CARBON as their bike of choice and used it as a weapon to achieve their greatest victories.
The KEO BLADE CARBON thus benefits from the best weight/performance ratio in its category.
The spring blade is fully integrated into the new design, guaranteeing unsurpassed aerodynamics. The Blade Carbon with carbon body and blade is available as Ti version (with titanium axle) and a weight of only 95 g per pedal or Cr version (Chromoly + axle) with 110 g per pedal. It is available in three release hardnesses: 12, 16 and 20 Nm.
OPTIMISED AXLE LINE GREATER POWER TRANSMISSION AND RELIABILITY
The axle line of the new BLADE CARBON has been completely rethought. It was built around an oversized axle and a cross-sectional axle line consisting of an internally positioned ball bearing and centered sleeve needle bearings under the bearing surface. This new design makes it possible to gain approx. 2 watts at 100 rpm.
The distance between the ball bearing and the sleeve needle bearing has been increased by 25 %. This provides more stiffness to the entire axle line and consequently improves power transmission.
Special attention has also been paid to tightness. This has been improved by 120% for increased reliability and durability. In addition, the new axle line has a new cover with O-ring at its outer end. It is equipped with an internally positioned double lip seal.
LOOK axles are only released after a 2 million cycle rotation test at 100 rpm with a load of 90 kg at the center of the pedal and an eccentric rotation (which results in an impact with each revolution). This is equivalent to a Mark Cavendish sprint of 1,700 watts at 100 rpm for 333 hours! This test goes far beyond the current EN 14781 standard.
SUPER-STRONG CONTACT SURFACE
In order to meet the needs of the most demanding riders, especially competitors, the pedal and pedal plate system, with a large and rigid contact surface, must allow efficient power transmission.
The support surface of the BLADE CARBON is equipped with a 67 mm wide stainless steel plate. It optimizes the pedal plate/pedal contact areas for each pedal angle.
With a contact surface of 700 mm², the BLADE CARBON offers an optimized contact surface for efficient power transmission that is unmatched on the market.
Their weight/performance ratio is significantly better than that of the competition.
CARBON TECHNOLOGY FOR PEDAL BODY AND SPRING BLADE
The use of carbon in the pedal body and spring blade allows a lower pedal weight with higher stiffness for better power transmission.
The BLADE technology is an important technological innovation in the history of click pedals, as it gives numerous advantages > LOW WEIGHT / AERODYNAMIC / VERY SAFE ONE / OUT.
