CERAMIC FASTER – LONGER
Every component, every ball is meticulously selected to ensure the highest level of quality and performance. The balls are precisely calibrated one by one by a machine, down to the micrometre. They are then ordered according to size in perfectly adapted rings, with the result that every bearing has a totally unique structure.
A long lifespan is the main advantage of ceramic bearings. Rounder and harder than traditional balls, they are less sensitive to dust or deposits and guarantee consistent, durable performance. Furthermore, ceramic is not subject to corrosion. These physical properties ensure the bearings have a lifespan 4 to 6 times longer than standard steel bearings.
Reduced friction is the best-known and most characteristic advantage of ceramic bearings. The perfectly circular shape and the hardness of the balls combined with ceramic-specific, optimized greases allows for an 18% reduction of the frictional forces applied to the bearing.
In order to meet the requirements of the most demanding cyclists, the BLADE CARBON pedals are designed to resist the very worst weather conditions. Particular care is given to each component within the axle to ensure optimal lifespan. The axle is guaranteed waterproof by IPX7 (full immersion) and IPX6 (rotating pedal exposed to water jets) tests. The design of the outer cap and the inside nut have been revised to meet these requirements.
BLADE TECHNOLOGY LIGHTER – AERODYNAMIC – SAFER
The use of a carbon blade instead of a conventional metal spring offers numerous advantages: The “blade – lever” system is 20% lighter than a standard “spring – lever” system. The carbon blade blends fluidly into the shape and volume of the pedal, improving the overall aerodynamic properties of the product. The BLADE technology revolutionizes the engagement/ disengagement experience whilst offering firm and secure support. The bowing of the blade when unclipping means the required disengagement torque is reached more rapidly in the dynamic of the movement, allowing for faster cleat release. Pedalling experience is also improved thanks to a firmer lateral stop. The carbon blade is available in various stiffness options: 12, 16 or 20. The blade can be easily, intuitively and quickly (a few seconds suffice) changed depending on the rider’ s clip-in / clip-out preferences.
THE BEST POWER TO WEIGHT RATIO
The full extent of the power a cyclist develops is transferred to the bike – and the road – through the pedals. Without going into extensive scientific detail, the larger the contact area, the more efficient the transfer of energy will be. On the other hand, the wider contact area, the more the weight of the pedal increases. LOOK engineers have worked tirelessly to pinpoint the areas where energy transfer is optimal, in order to finetune design and reduce any unnecessary surfaces. This careful analysis was key to producing a pedal with the best weight-to-contact area ratio on the market today.
Romain BARDET I AG2R LA MONDIALE
"The rigor and thoroughness with which I approach each day is equalled only by my passion for cycling. In my eyes, nothing should ever be left to chance and my choice of equipment reflects this obsession. I have been riding LOOK pedals for 19 years and in them, I have found an ideal partner; a subtle blend of technology and craftsmanship to accompany and support me in my wildest dreams - one more reason of to keep pushing beyond the limits."

Delivery of Bikes
We ship all our bikes free of charge within the United Kingdom (excl. Jersey and the Channel Islands at this time) and all our bikes come pre-assembled with just a few tweaks required (Please see our Bike Build Instruction page for details of assembly required).
All our bikes undergo a safety check before being re-boxed for shipping which can during busy periods take a little longer to complete so whilst we aim to ship all our bikes within two working days of the order please allow for additional time for this process.
All our consignments irrespective of the carrier require a signature upon delivery, deliveries are typically made between 08:00 and 18:00 so please bare this in mind when choosing a delivery address.
We do try when possible to reuse packaging from our own suppliers in order to send purchased items to our customers, we ask if the packaging is still in good condition after you've received your goods then please try to use it again or recycle if not possible.
