Look Keo 2 Max Carbon

what is this?

First and foremost, clipless pedals are designed to hold you tightly to your bike. But they're also the power transfer point from your feet to the drivetrain. And when you factor in rotation weight and energy dissipation, a pedals stiffness-to-weight ratio becomes a crucial component of watt conservation. Not surprisingly, though, Look Cycle designed the new Keo 2 Max Carbon pedals to provide a wide, stiff platform, so that none of your watts go to waste.

is this for me?

One of the most advanced pedal systems on the market, perfect for advanced cyclists.

how does it work?

The original Look Keo pedals were a crowd-pleaser, but the carbon bodies had the tendency to wear quickly. The solution was simple, yet brilliant. Look placed a stainless steel wear plate atop the center of the carbon pedal. This eliminated wear.  But Look did more than add a plate to its pedals, it redesigned the shape so that it's wider. In fact, the Keo 2 Max is among the widest clipless pedals around. This 57mm platform width increases the surface area that contacts the cleats. However, it doesn't impact the pedals' cornering clearance, as the Keo 2 Max is narrower on the bottom. Surprisingly, we find that they corner better than the original Keo design.

Look also went to town on its axles. It increased the diameter to 12mm on the crank side for greater stiffness, and it kept the stack height to a minimum, at 15.7mm. There are two roller bearings on the crank side, and a needle bearing on the outside of the spindle that ensures a smooth running pedal, season after season. And to further ensure this, the bearings are hidden behind two seals.

The Keo 2 Max Carbon pedal bodies were made with injected carbon fiber, and the wear plates and axles are stainless steel. The Q-Factor is 53mm, and it's able to be increased to 55mm with the use of a 2mm spacer that goes between the spindle and the crank (sold separately). The release tension is also able to be adjusted from 12-18Nm. There are three float options for the cleats, zero float (Black) cleats, 4.5-degrees float (Grey) cleats, and 9-degrees of float (Red) cleats. These pedals come with the Grey Keo Grip cleats.The Look Keo 2 Max Carbon Pedals weigh in around 122g per pedal or 312g per pair (including cleats and hardware).

The Look Keo 2 Max Carbon Pedals are available in one size and in the colors Carbon and Black/white ltd.
