Look is the originator of road clipless pedal systems and the Keo Blade 2 Ti represents their most refined pedal to date. Even with a larger and more supportive platform, the actual weight is only 184 grams per pair. Look achieves this sub-200 gram weight with titanium axles that save 40 grams over the cromoly axle.
The "blade" is a carbon spring that powers the retention mechanism saving a huge amount of weight over a steel spring and supporting hardware. The Keo Blade 2 improves upon the Keo Blade with a centrally located spring giving a cleaner more refined appearance and improve aerodynamics. We stock the Blade 2 in 16 Newton meter and 12 Newton meter release tensions. There is not a huge difference in the feel of the 12Nm and 16Nm and most riders will likely want the 12Nm. Aggressive sprinters would tend to prefer the 16Nm.
Like all Look pedals, Look Keo Blade 2 pedals have an easy and intuitive entry/release action. Installing and adjusting Look cleats is also quite easy. The included Grey 4.5 Keo Grip cleat has soft rubber pads to help prevent slipping on slick surfaces. Look Keo Blade 2 Ti pedals install with a 6mm Allen wrench.
