Look Kéo Blade Carbon Ceramic Pedals with a new design that fully integrates the blade for unrivalled aerodynamics. Equipped with a carbon body and blade, the Blade Carbon features a CroMoly+ spindle to reduce the weight to 110 g per pedal. The new Blade Carbon's spindle system has been completely redesigned. It's built around an oversized axle and spindle that passes through an internal roller bearing and a central needle bearing directly under the pedal platform. This new construction saves approximately 2 watts of energy at 100 rpm. The distance between the roller bearing and needle bearing has been increased by 25%. This provides more rigidity along the length of the spindle and therefore improves power transmission. Special attention has also been given to water resistance. This has been improved by 120% for more reliability and longevity. To achieve this, the new spindle received an updated end-plug with an O-ring washer. On the inside, it has been equipped with a double-lipped seal.

Look axles are only approved after a rotational test of 2 million cycles at 100 rpm with a load of 90 kg on the centre of the pedal and an eccentric rotation (which creates shock on each revolution). This test is much more demanding than the current standard, the EN14781.

Each component, each ball is meticulously selected to ensure the highest level of quality and performance. The balls are precisely calibrated by a machine, one-by-one, to the nearest micrometre. Then they are ordered according to size in perfectly fitted rings so that each bearing has a totally unique structure. The main advantage of ceramic bearings is their long life. They are rounder and harder than traditional balls, and they are less sensitive to dust or deposits, guaranteeing consistent and long-lasting performance. Furthermore, ceramic doesn't corrode. These physical properties guarantee the bearings a lifespan of 4 to 6 times longer than standard steel bearings. Reduced friction is the best-known and most typical advantage of ceramic bearings. The perfectly circular shape and the hardness of the balls, combined with specifically optimised grease for ceramic, reduces the friction forces applied to the bearing by 18%.

In response to requests from the most demanding cyclists, especially competitive cyclists, the pedal-cleat system provides efficient power transfer thanks to a wider and more rigid pedal platform. The Blade Carbon's platform is equipped with a 67 mm wide stainless-steel blade. This optimises the cleat/pedal contact areas, regardless of the pedal angle. With a surface area of 700mm2, the Carbon Blade provides an optimised contact platform for a level of power transfer that is unrivalled on the market. The weight/power ratio positions these pedals well above their competitors. Using a carbon body lightens the weight of the pedal and provides additional rigidity for improved power transfer. Blade technology is an important technical innovation in the history of automatic pedals, and it provides a number of benefits: lightweight, aerodynamic, and ultra-secure clip-in and clip-out.
