Look (France) - Press Release: 795 Blade RS. Faster than ever: designed for performance & versatility.
There was a time when aero road bikes only focused on aerodynamics, but this time has passed and the 795 Blade RS is Look’s iteration of a bike that fulfills all road cyclists dreams.
The 795 Blade RS cuts through the air, provides unmatched stiffness to weight ratio in the aero bikes category and it maintains traction where other bikes fail thanks to an innovative rear triangle design and large tire clearance. Rim brake and disc brake versions are available so that no matter which braking system the cyclist prefers there will be a 795 Blade RS for him.
In summary, the 795 Blade RS is packed with so many features that assure it is the fastest, smoothest and most versatile bike Look has ever made.
3S Design - Optimize traction transfer 100 % of the power to the road:
A fast bike is a bike capable of transfering the highest percentage of the cyclist’s power to the road, creating forward motion.
Our new 3S technology is all about rear wheel traction. By creating longer and curved seatstays, having no bridge between them (on both rim brakes and disc brakes version) and optimizing the lay-up to allow some vertical movement while maintaining lateral stiffness of the rear triangle we give the cyclist not only traction but also comfort.
One of the benefit of bringing traction and comfort in the rear triangle is that the bike does not rely on a flexible seat post, thus improving pedaling efficiency once again!
Aerodynamism - CFD Development:
Look was one of the first bike manufacturer to use Computational Fluid Dynamics software to optimize new bikes design. Now it seems a common thing, but you need a lot of experience to understand all CFD can do. Only an expert eyes can talk with the results of calculation. Look collaborates with one of the best Formula 1 Aerodynamicist in the World.
The 795 Blade RS has been developped with cable integration and easy maintenance in mind. It is compatible with both mechanical and electronic groupsets and there are specific rim brakes and disc brakes framesets.
4 Seatpost positions: Off set from 54 mm to -6 mm seat tube angles from 71.8° TO 78.4°.
6 stem sizes: From 80mm to 130mm.
