Look announced the launch of it’s new "aero bike" this week – called the 795.
The 795 is a new edition to Look’s 2015 range, which incorporates the brand’s "Aerolight" technology. And, similar to the 695 model, the front brake has been integrated into the fork, along with the rear brake which has been positioned behind the bottom bracket. The premise of this, is of course to improve braking and minimize drag.
In keeping the current "aero" bike trends, the 795 was designed with the latest NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) airfoil and tube shape profiles in mind- in order to yield the most aerodynamically efficient frameset possible.
At first glance, it’s readily apparent that careful attention was given to the 795’s head tube, down tube, seat tube, integrated seat mast, seatstays, fork and even Look’s adjustable, integrated Aeorstream monbloc stem, relative to the NACA treatment.
Look’s integrated cable routing, further enhances the 795’s wind-cheating capabilities, by neatly routing all cables (that’s both mechanicals and brakes) internally throughout the frameset.
In addition, the 795 incorporates Look’s lightweight, adjustable Zed 2 Monobloc carbon cranks.
According to Look, a Shimano Dura-Ace equipped 795 will carry a price of roughly $12,000.00.
However, there will be a non-Aerolight version, which uses a conventional brake set-up (you get a different fork with the brake mounted to the front – and a rear brake that’s mounted to the seatstays), for almost 2K less.
Both version are expected to be available sometime in September.
