First top-range carbon frame model, the 461 benefits from extremely high technology. Light and efficient, the 461 is the ideal frame for discovering carbon technology. Fitted with a HSC4 carbon frame and wishbone replacing traditional stays, it is intended for all racers looking for an efficient and versatile frame. Its compact geometry gives a slope on the four smaller sizes before disappearing as from size 57.
More flexible than HM (high modulus) fiber but just as tough, HR (High Resistance) fiber can be used to make more comfortable frames. It is cheaper than HM fiber, meaning that frames can be made that are excellent value for money.
LOOK patented Integrated Headset
LOOK patented headset kit : the LOOK patent is on the removable cups in the head set kit. Compatible with all head set standard kits on the market: (36° and 45° Sealed Bearings).
HSC 4 Fork
380g Monobloc carbon. Available in 1'' or 1'1/8 e with integrated headset for higher lateral stiffness and more precise handling.
This describes "compact" or "sloping" geometry when the top tube, also called "cross bar" is not horizontal, and where the junction between the seat tube is lowered by several centimeters compared with the horizontal.
Oversized part or piece in order to increase rigidity and strength. This generally concerns aluminium connectors, which must be as rigid as possible, whereas tubes made of carbon are more flexible and comfortable .
HR Carbon Wishbone.
Thanks to its forming process, the wishbone provides extra lateral rigidity without change in vertical rigidity, giving a more comfortable ride.
HR (High Resistance) carbon Oversize PRO MAX tubes for extra rigidity without increasing weight.
