The Look Keo Blade Aero is the aerodynamic version of the Keo Blade. Keeping with the Keo Blade’s platform, the Keo Blade Aero has the largest pedaling surface on the market. Look takes the wide pedal base of the Keo 2 Max, removes the spring adjustment and replaces the tension adjustment with a strip of carbon. This strip of carbon, or the blade, adds greater cleat engagement for better grip and performance.
The Keo Blade Aero uses a cromoly steel axle with two miniature ball bearings (12mm inner x 18mm outer diameters) as well as a needle roller bearing. All the bearings are sealed so you can rely on lower service and a longer bearing life as well as a super smooth ride.
With a rounded, compressed carbon shell, the pedals allow air to flow quickly underneath, creating smooth airflow.
Just like the Look Keo Blades, the Keo Blade Aero adds 14mm threads on the axle that allow you to adjust the Q-factor by up to 2mm with the use of specific washers (available separately).
To be sure your Look Keo Blade Aero will last, the quality control department at Look put the pedal to the metal by pushing it through a million cycles at 100 revolutions per minute with an almost 200 pound load at the center of the pedal. They compound this with an eccentric rotation to replicate a bump with each turn. This test goes above and beyond current testing requirements.
With all the changes to the pedal platform they didn’t change the pattern for the Keo grip cleats so the built in rubber contacts are still as durable and easy to walk in as ever before. Since they didn’t change the pattern, they are compatible with your current Keo cleats. And, with the new larger platform, they are even easier to clip in and out.
