The KEO BLADE 2 is a more reassuring, extremely stable, a lighter and more powerful pedal. Its design completely changes the BLADE for better aerodynamics. The KEO BLADE 2 is the result of a long process undertaken by LOOK engineers to optimize all the innovative concepts which were developed for the KEO BLADE Carbon. Particular attention has been paid to reliability, high resistance body, stainless steel bearing surface, oversized spindle shaft with dual seals, making this pedal a very safe and durable product. Blade The LOOK KEO BLADE 2 12Nm Carbon pedal features the revolutionary compressed carbon blade in place of the traditional steel spring, allowing for secure cleat engagement and quicker, easier cleat disengagement. The result, you’re either very much ‘in’ or very much ‘out’ and there’s no in-between, with the KEO 2 MAX there’s a short period where the rear gate is flexed open and you’re still partially engaged. LOOK offers the KEO BLADE 2 pedals with either a 12Nm or a 16Nm spring but there is NOT an adjustment beyond that, but the rider can switch between the two on their own or with help at their local bike shop. UNDER THE SURFACE For a more efficiency and stability the Blade has a cleat support platform that is much larger and much wider than the KEO carbon. A stainless steel platform has been molded into the body which improves power transmission and decrease of wear on the pedal platform. Each having purpose for one another the pedal is double-injected. One material provides excellent mechanical strength and the other material interacts specifically with the cleat. As for the axle technology, the oversized KEO BLADE 2 axle maintains a 13mm stack height. It is composed of 2 miniature roller bearings (12 mm interior x 18 mm exterior) and a needle bearing.
