THE NEW BENCHMARK FOR THE PROSThe new Keo Blade 2 is the result of the knowledge of the LOOK engineers, aiming to optimise all the parameters that made the Keo Blade Carbon a success. The new design perfectly integrates the carbon blade at the heart of the pedal, leading to a pedal with the most aerodynamic profile ever created. More powerful with its new surface contact area increased by 75%, it and is lighter by ten grams! The Keo Blade 2 is available in two versions: titanium axle (Keo Blade 2 Ti) and chromoly (Keo Blade 2 Cr).
VERY SECURE CLEAT ENTRY / RELEASEThe Kéo Blade 2 concept, based on a carbon blade, allows for a more rigid cleat release, which ejects the foot much faster at the end of the release process than a traditional sping. This makes the pedal very safe and allowed us to remove the resistance setting. However, to satisfy all cyclists, the Kéo Blade 2 is available in 3 different hardnesses: version 12 that will be ideal for most users, version 16 for riders seeking more support and version 20 for those looking for maximum support. It is possible to switch from one version to another by changing the blade with a special tool
AERODYNAMIC PROFILEWith the full integration of the carbon spring blade into the body of the pedal, the Kéo Blade 2 is the pedal with the best aerodynamic profile ever created. In addition, the two channels on either side of the body allow for optimal air flow.
MAXIMUM PEDALING WIDTH AND SURFACEThe Kéo Blade 2 features a 68 mm wide stainless steel plate moulded into the body, which allows the cleat maximum contact with the pedal at all time, whatever the pedaling angle adapted.
PERMANENT CLEAT STOP CONTACT FOR BETTER STABILITYTo improve the stability and the foot support, the new design ensures that the shape of the cleat fits perfectly that of the stop and is always in contact with it, whatever the pedaling angle.
VERY LIGHT: 90 G (TI) / 110 G (CR) CLEAT + PEDAL SET = 124G / 144GThe weight of the pedal has been reduced compared to the previous version. This is possible thanks to a new and thinner spindle which is lighter, and also to a weight gain on the material of the pedal body.
VERY RELIABLEParticular attention has been paid to reliability: high resistance body, stainless steel bearing surface, oversized spindle shaft with dual seals, making this pedal a very safe and durable product.
SPINDLE PROFILETo achieve greater efficiency, the new Keo Blade 2 spindle has reduced the stack height by using an oversized Titanium or Chromoly spindle. It is composed of two miniature ball bearings : one 12mm inner x 18mm outer diameters, one 6mm inner x 12mm outer diameters and a needle roller bearing. LOOK spindles are only approved after a rotational test of 2 million cycles at 100 rpm with a load of 90kg on the centre of the pedal and an eccentric rotation (replicating a bump each revolution). This test is much higher than the current standard: the EN14781. A double seal ensures the bearings have a very long service life.
Q-FACTOR SETTINGSKeo 2 Max axle threads are now 14mm in length. This allows an additional 2mm Q-Factor adjustment using a specific spacer, available as a spare part. It can increase the Q Factor measurement from 53 to 55mm.
