To celebrate this year’s French Grand Tour, LOOK Cycles is offering a limited edition Tour de France version of its KEO Blade carbon ceramic pedals complete with new titanium spindles.
In addition to water resistant, ceramic bearings found on the standard KEO Blade carbon pedals, which LOOK claims results in an 18% reduction in friction and a bearing life that’s up to 6-times greater, the French brand has upgraded the chromoly spindles to titanium, resulting in a 15g per pedal weight savings for the limited edition TFD version.
To distinguish the TDF pedal, LOOK Cycles has added a splash of yellow graphics along with the official logo of the Tour de France to the underside of the pedals.
According to LOOK Cycles, the TDF pedal is limited to 1,700 sets worldwide, which carry a price tag of €290.
“Look is incredibly proud of our heritage, and we are delighted to be able to celebrate our mutual history with the Tour de France with this limited edition pedal,” says Alexandre Lavaud, Look Cycle pedal product manager.
“The Keo Blade Carbon Ceramic Ti TDF is a celebration of shared memories and current presence in the Tour with nine teams, but it also demonstrates our ambition and determination to always improve our products and offer the cyclists the very best equipment for them to achieve their riding goals.
“This new pedal incorporates a titanium axle within its construction, reducing weight by 15 grams compared to the recently-launched Keo Blade Carbon Ceramic, which itself set new standards in the road pedal sector. It takes pride of place at the top of the Look road pedal range,” he adds.
LOOK Cycles is expected to upgrade the standard KEO Blade carbon ceramic pedals to titanium spindles later this year as well.
