Look Keo 2 Max Carbon Road Bike Pedals Review
Today Look are one of the leading cycling product manufacturers, they offer a fantastic range of pedals that are perfect for every type of rider.
One of the best and latest releases is the Look Keo Max 2 Carbon pedals. An update to the previous Keo Max 2, this Carbon model offers riders a fantastic array of updates and improvements. In particular, the wider composite body with stainless steel upper plate provides riders with a more solid feel when riding as well as a more durable pedal. The Keo 2 Max Carbon’s stainless steel upper plate also offers riders a more yielding and smoother float compared to previous models.
The grey cleats offer riders a 4.5 degree rotation, while the optional red cleat offers 9 degrees, an ideal option for riders with more sensitive knees. Soft, rubber cleat pads are also provided, making them easier and more comfortable to walk in. While the Keo cleats are fantastic, it is essential to ensure they are correctly maintained as they can wear quite quickly. The entry and exit of the Keo 2 Max Carbon is also fantastic and extremely smooth. Look has also offered riders plenty of adjustment so that they can readjust the tension to a more preferable setting.
The chromoly axle is extremely strong and nimble, due to the easy to reach and maintain smooth bearings. While Look have also included a washer-friendly 2mm of additional threading on the axles ideal for riders who prefer a wide stance.
The Keo 2 Max is available in three different models each weighing 259 grams per pair, which is quite high, compared to others available on the market. However, the Look Keo 2 Max pedals are built for strength, durability and comfort rather than a weight saving design, therefore these pedals should be considered a long lasting investment and are ideal for riders with an ongoing passion for cycling.
