This product was added to our catalog on September 10, 2014.This is the LOOK Keo Blade 2 Chromoly Clipless Pedal, with 12Nm release tension. The Kéo 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. The Kéo Blade 2 is a more reassuring, more stable, lighter and more powerful pedal. Its design completely integrates the blade for better aerodynamics.
- VERY SECURE CLEAT ENTRY / RELEASE: The Kéo Blade 2 concept, based on a carbon blade, allows for a more rigid cleat release, which ejects the foot much faster at the end of the release process than a traditional sping. This makes the pedal very safe and allowed Look to remove the resistance setting. However, to satisfy all cyclists, the Kéo Blade 2 is available with 3 different release tension levels: 12Nm that will be ideal for most users, 16Nm for riders seeking more support and 20Nm* for those looking for maximum support. It is possible to switch from one version to another by changing the blade with a special tool.
- AERODYNAMIC PROFILE: With the full integration of the carbon spring blade into the body of the pedal, the Kéo Blade 2 is the pedal with the best aerodynamic profile ever created. In addition, the two channels on either side of the body allow for optimal air flow.
- MAXIMUM PEDALING WIDTH AND SURFACE: The Kéo Blade 2 features a 68mm wide stainless steel plate molded into the body, which allows the cleat maximum contact with the pedal at all time, whatever the pedalling angle adapted.
- PERMANENT CLEAT STOP CONTACT FOR BETTER STABILITY: To improve the stability and the foot support, the design ensures that the shape of the cleat fits perfectly that of the stop and is always in contact with it, whatever the pedaling angle.
- VERY LIGHT - 110 G CLEAT + PEDAL SET = 144G: The weight of the pedal has been reduced compared to the previous version. This is possible thanks to a thinner spindle which is lighter, and also to a weight gain on the material of the pedal body.
- VERY RELIABLE: 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.
- SPINDLE PROFILE: To achieve greater efficiency, the Keo Blade 2 spindle has reduced the stack height by using an oversized Chromoly spindle. It is composed of two miniature ball bearings: one 12mm inner x 18mm outer diameters, one 6mm inner x 12mm outer diameters and a needle roller bearing. LOOK spindles are only approved after a rotational test of 2 million cycles at 100 rpm with a load of 90kg on the centre of the pedal and an eccentric rotation (replicating a bump each revolution). This test is much higher than the current standard: the EN14781. A double seal ensures the bearings have a very long service life.

- DO NOT USE the Keo Blade 2 with the 20Nm spring blade unless you have prior experience with Look automatic pedals and confirmed that you need an extremely firm attachment of the shoe to the pedal.
- The Kéo Blade 2, equipped with the 20 spring, is a pedal with a very strong tension level that requires a higher than average use of force to release the cleat from the pedal (more than 20Nm). This could lead to a potentially dangerous fall if adequate force is not applied when disengaging. Most riders are perfectly satisfied with the 12 blade spring. Look strongly recommends that you start with the 12 blade spring pedal to gain experience and determine your needs before switching to 16 or 20.
- Do not use a 16 or 20 pedal unless your actual experience with the 12 blade pedal confirms that you need a firmer binding and you feel totally confident with higher release torque.
