Light, aerodynamic & powerful: Kéo Blade Carbon
The new KEO BLADE CARBON is designed to win and improve the experience with spring blade technology on click pedals. This new version is the result of the experience of many years of technical development in our factory and constant improvements in the daily contact with the greatest cycling champions. The new KEO BLADE CARBON is light, aerodynamic, powerful and has all the advantages you need to improve and optimise your performance until you win. That's why many cycling champions unanimously chose the KEO BLADE CARBON as their pedal of choice and used it as a weapon to achieve their greatest victories. The KEO BLADE CARBON thus benefits from the best weight/performance ratio in its category. The spring blade is fully integrated into the new design, ensuring unsurpassed aerodynamics. The Blade Carbon with steel axles weighs 110 grams per pedal.

Details of the Look Kéo Blade Carbon pedals
Optimized axle line, greater power transmission and reliability
The axle line of the new BLADE CARBON CERAMIC has been completely rethought. It was built around an oversized axle and a cross-sectional axle line consisting of an internally positioned ceramic bearing under the bearing surface. This new design makes it possible to gain approx. 2 watts at 100 rpm.
The distance between the ball bearing and the sleeve needle bearing has been increased by 25 %. This provides more stiffness to the entire axle line and therefore improves power transmission.
Special attention was also paid to the tightness. This has been improved by 120% for increased reliability and durability. In addition, the new axle line has a new cover with O-ring at its outer end. It is equipped with an internally positioned double lip seal.
LOOK axles are only released after a 2 million cycle rotation test at 100 rpm with a 90 kg load at the pedal center and an eccentric rotation (which results in an impact on each turn). This corresponds to an André GREIPEL sprint of 1,700 watts at 100 rpm for 333 hours! This test goes far beyond the current ISO 4210 standard.
Superstrong contact area
To meet the needs of the most demanding riders, especially competitors, the system of pedal and pedal plate with a large and rigid contact area must allow efficient power transmission.
The support surface of the BLADE CARBON CERAMIC is equipped with a 67 mm wide stainless steel plate. It optimizes the pedal plate/pedal contact areas for each pedal angle.
With a contact surface of 700 mm², the BLADE CARBON CERAMIC offers an optimized contact surface for efficient power transmission that is unmatched on the market.
Their weight/performance ratio is significantly better than that of the competition.
Carbon technology for pedal body and spring blade
The use of carbon for pedal body and spring blade allows a lower pedal weight with higher stiffness for better power transmission. BLADE technology is an important technological innovation in the history of clipless pedals, offering many advantages: Low weight, aerodynamics, very safe entry / exit
Included in delivery: Pedals incl. two pairs of blades (8 Nm, 12 Nm) + one pair of Kéo Cleats grey pedal plates + screws
