Look is coming out with a carbon fiber bodied version of its Keo pedal called the Blade Aero. It has their carbon blade retention spring with a smooth, aerodynamic bottom side that Look claims improves aerodynamics by 2%. Weight is only increased over the standard Keo Carbon Blade by 5g, yet it’s stiffer for better power transfer.

Look tested the pedal in the wind tunnel at the Formula 1 Magny-Cours Racetrack in Nevers, France, then threw them on Alberto Contador’s bike during the prologue and final time trial at this year’s Tour de France.

Look for these in November, and look past the break for two more photos…
