LOOK achieves another first in professional cycling with the introduction
of the world’s 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 KéO Blade Carbon Aero Pedals / Concept to Reality:
At last year’s 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
A Pedal Designed with Speed in Mind:
The Kéo 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 Kéo Blade Carbon Aero is the stiffest and most aerodynamically
advanced pedal in the professional peloton.

of the pro peloton at the Tour de France :
