Look's brand new Kéo 2 MAX pedal as used by the Tour 2009 winner Alberto Contador and countless others. New for this model is an increased contact surface area and steel wear plate.
At a mere 130g in composite the Kéo 2 MAX is one of the lightest pedals in its category. This has been achieved through the use of a carbon injection process (carbon model) allowing for weight reduction and improved durability.
Particular attention was focused on reliability and provided through features such as: a stainless steel cleat contact area, an oversized axle with dual seals, making this a pedal built to last. The new line of Kéo 2 MAX pedals maintains a low cleat contact height even with the use of a steel oversize axle. The pedal is built with two miniature ball bearings (12mm inner x 18mm outer diameters) and a needle roller bearing. LOOK axles are only approved once they have survived a million cycles at 100 revolutions per minute with a 90kg (198lbs) load at the centre of the pedal and an eccentric rotation (replicating a bump each revolution). This test largely surpasses current standards (reference NF EN 14781). Dual seals help to increase bearing longevity.
Thanks to 14mm of threads on the new LOOK axle, the Q-factor may be extended by 2mm with the use of specific washers available separately. Use of these specific washers results in a Q-factor of 55mm versus the original 53mm.
"Bigger platform and smoother float for Look's updated Kéo pedal..."
Look's ubiquitous Kéo road pedal receives a significant update in the new Kéo 2 MAX, with a wider composite body and co-moulded stainless steel upper plate that lends a more solid feel underfoot and less out-of-plane rocking compared to the original Kéo. When it comes for your mid-ride cafe stop, soft rubber pads on the front and back of the cleats help prevent embarrassing spills on slick floors.
A 12% larger contact area for increased efficiency, increased stability, comfortable stroke and peace of mind.
Supplied with Kéo Grip cleats (grey - 4.5 degrees of float).
Weight: 130g (Manufacturer claimed).
