Alberto Contador uses Aero Pedal in Tour TT
REVIEW DATE: 23 Jul, 2010

LOOK achieves another first in professional cycling with the introduction

of the worlds first aerodynamically designed pedal, KeO Blade Carbon

Aero. Alberto Contador debuted them in the Prologue of the 2010 Tour de

France and will use the KeO Blade Carbon Aero pedals once again in Stage

19 Bordeaux to Pauillac Time Trial.

LOOK KO Blade Carbon Aero Pedals / Concept to Reality:

At last years Tour de France, Alberto Contador rode to victory in the last

individual time trial around Lake Annecy using a prototype aero pedal.

Since then, Contador and the LOOK Pedal Engineers have been working

tirelessly to create a pedal that would give Contador an even greater

advantage over his rivals. That advantage is now a reality with the KeO

Blade Carbon Aero.

A Closer Look at the First Aero Pedal:

LOOK created this aero pedal in order to reduce drag and improve airflow

while pedaling. In addition to improved aerodynamics, the body of the pedal

is reinforced to deliver an even greater stiffness allowing for maximum

power transfer.

A Pedal Designed with Speed in Mind:

The Ko Blade Carbon Aero was tested in the wind tunnel at the Formula

1 Magny-Cours Racetrack in Nevers, France. The results showed an

astounding 2% saving in power, a direct result of reduced drag.

The LOOK Ko Blade Carbon Aero is the stiffest and most aerodynamically

advanced pedal in the professional peloton.

LOOK is the proud Pedal Sponsor of Alberto Contador and nearly half

of the pro peloton at the Tour de France :
