With limited availability the 486 Carbon is in high demand.  Check it out at the LOOK CYCLE Dealers listed below.

HM AERO carbon tubes''designed by computer'' :
A researched and developed design for performance : the tubes shapes have been designed by computer to optimize lateral stiffness and aerodynamic compromise : over sized monobloc bracket, reinforced junction tubes/head set , seat tubes diamond shape, profiled Top and down tubes . The use of HM carbon gives a very light frame by puting less material

New geometry ''progressive sloping'' ''Evolusize'' :
The frame geometry is a new concept : progressive sloping.In small sizes a very strong slooping (65 mm) and decrease down to zero in size57. This gives the opportunity to many riders to fit on that bike.

Wishbone monobloc carbon ''double curve'' :
The rear base is a concentrate of technology : Oversized base that ends in triangle. A special drop out has been designed to be the link in between the base and the front triangle. This triangle drop out as a goal of buttress. The wishobne is stiff enough on the lateral side and comfort on vertical side, because it's bended twice ( Double Curve concept). The 486 has an exceptional responsiveness combined with a hig level of comfort.

Fork HSC 4 :
100 % carbon monobloc fork: improvement of lateral stiffness. Carbon steerer 1 inch 1/8 : better stiffness in piloting. Much more precise in any circumstances.

LOOK patented head set :
The patent is based on two removable cup in the head set :
1/ In case of a damage in the head set kit section, the frame can not be damaged itself
2/Can adjust any head set kit on the market just removing those two cups (36 et 45)

New finishing :
New decals with a high resistance and durability as well as a very nice finishing
