Look KEO Classic Road Bike Pedals Review
An ideal option for cyclists who are unfamiliar with clipless pedals is the Keo classic, which utilises a shorter cleat compared to the older Delta design. While Look claim the shorter 17mm deck height guarantees more efficient power transfer.
The Look Keo classic road pedals are constructed using a chromoly axle, while the pedal is constructed using an injected Polyamide, very similar to the Sprint model. The pedals feature two bearings, which ensure that the pedal is stable, sturdy and more impressively offers cyclists a high performing pedal.
Testers explained that tension adjustment offered a good range, while any adjustments can be made easily using a 3mm Allen key. While the entry of these pedals is extremely smooth and positive, identical to the previous Delta system and rivalling the well established Shimano SPD-SL model.
Look has released three distinct cleat versions, all of which offer different float degrees, meeting every rider’s specifications. The red offers riders the opportunity to rotate 9 degrees, the grey allows a rotation of 4.5 degrees, while the black version is ideal for riders who don’t require any float.
The Look Keo Classic pedals are light, weighing an extraordinary 140 grams, while the Polyamide construction of the pedals ensures that the pedals remain extremely strong and rigid. These are good entry level pedals for cyclists; they are easy to use, lightweight and look fantastic, which is why the Keo classic is a great example of why Look remains one of the most influential pedal manufacturers today.
