The Look 795 Aerolight is the consummate example of a completely integrated bicycle. To create it, Look extracted everything possible from their 30 years of experience of working with carbon; 10 of those 30 years were dedicated to specific research, lead by their own engineering department. The result is incredible, a bicycle that is both aerodynamic and ultralight.

2017 Look 795 Aerolight.

1.5k carbon frame made with NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) certified tubes, AEROSTEM angle adjustable carbon stem, ZED3 carbon monobloc crankset, E-POST 2 with integrated Di2 battery, 100% integrated brakes and cable routing…The 795 AEROLIGHT is the bicycle which launches the largest concentration of the newest technologies. 836 pieces of carbon and 54 hours of hand-made manufacturing were necessary to craft this racing machine.

795 Aero Technology.
With the entirety of its components being integrated, the 795 – and particularly the 795 Aerolight, with its incorporated brakes, pushes performance limits even further.

Every strategic part of the bicycle has been designed in close collaboration with an aerodynamicists while maintaining the overall vision. The result is the most aerodynamic, lightweight and high-performance road bicycle ever created.

The 795 Aerolight provides an 11% aerodynamic increase when compared to a classic road bike. A distance of 100km, on a flat course, with an average power of 300W, would represent a gain of 1’14.

Integrated Technology.
Designing a bicycle at LOOK does not mean building a frame, then the components.

The creation of a LOOK carbon bicycle is seen as a whole, where the components are thought out and crafted to blend with the frame.

Each element that is connected to the frame must be able to improve the performance of the bicycle. From this integration has come an elegant design and the fluid lines that LOOK knows how to master.

HM Carbon 1,5K Technology.
HM: High Modulus. « High-end » fibers. Their stiffness is very high, on average double that of HR fibers. The HM fibers permit more rigidity without the added weight. LOOK bicycles are made with either HM 3K or 1.5K fibers, the latter having a finer weave and therefore lighter (ie. a 1.5 fiber =1500 threads in 1 fiber).

For over 30 years, LOOK has developed a unique expertise and an exceptional experience that allows the combining of different types of fibers to achieve specific characteristics. We master the parameters of carbon composition in order to produce the desired behavior.

ZED 3 Crankset.
100% carbon monobloc crankset with unequaled weight/stiffness ratio. The length of the crank arms is adjustable thanks to a tri-lobed nut. The ZED 3 crank is aerodynamic, very rigid and extremely light: 360g (bottom bracket+axle+carbon spider-without chainrings). Variable lenght: 170mm to 172 or 175mm.

E-Post 2 Seatpost.
The LOOK E-Post 2 is an integrated seatpost. For this second generation of E-Posts, many factors have been improved such as its aerodynamic NACA* certified profile, weight (only 139gr) and even the ease of adjustability: The seatpost installs quickly into the frame, a trademarked LOOK tightening system locks the seatpost in place in only a ½ turn with a 4mm Allen.

The E-POST 2 seatpost absorbs vibrations through 4 elastomers that surround it: 3 are placed in such a way that they enter into the frame and expand as the assembly is being tightened, assuring a secure hold of the seatpost in the frame. The final elastomer is 40mm in height and located outside the frame , forming a 9mm thick exterior defense against vibrations. The E-POST 2 seatpost is Di2 compatible.

Aerostem.
The Aerostem is made of HM carbon. It is Aerodynamic and may be inverted, offering a large amount of versatility. Its range varies from -13° and +17°, allowing cyclists to achieve the lowest to highest positions: Six lengths are available, from 80mm to 130mm, in 10mm increments.

Rigid, it provides an excellent piloting position. Weighing a meager 149g, the AEROSTEM is an excellent choice for a lightweight stem.

ADH Handlebar.
LOOK drew inspiration from its track handlebar when designing the ADH (Aerodynamic Design Handlebar) handlebar. The drop of this handlebar is reduced as much as possible. The position difference between the tops and drops of the bar is less than that of a traditional handlebar.

Its aerodynamic and ergonomic shape provide an excellent grasp. Made of 100% HM carbon, it tips the scale at a mere 250g (size 42). The ultra compact ADH handlebar is available in 3 sizes: 38cm / 40cm / 42cm / 44cm (center to center).

Aerobrakes.
Keeping aerodynamics in mind, LOOK integrated its trademarked V-style front brake into the fork itself.

The flow of air is thus facilitated compared to a traditional post mounted caliper brake.
