The new standard for performance and versatility
Year after year, we strive to improve our products with one unique goal : performance. The new 795 BLADE RS is no exception and much time was invested to refine and enhance the four main elements of performance : aerodynamics, weight, stiffness and comfort. The possibilities of each of these parameters was studied and exploited to maximum effect to obtain a subtle yet perfect balance, and finally a bike which performs superbly across all terrains and disciplines. 5 % more aerodynamic than its predecessor, it is also lighter and stiffer. The new 3S DESIGN – SMOOTH SWORD SEATSTAYS – technology combined with the suppression of the bridge between the seat stays allows for 23 % more sensitivity to road vibration and a resulting increase in comfort. It also makes for a faster bike, both in the disc and rim brake versions of the frame.

3SDesign: Optimise 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
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
Designed & manufactured by LOOK…
Since LOOK’s beginning in the bicycle world when metals were king, our material of choice has always been carbon. For over 30 years LOOK has developed in its own factories a unique expertise and a vast know-how in the carbon field to reach specific desired properties.
Once the optimal shapes had been created, our engineers work on the processes and on the carbon lay-up for each areas of the bike in a very precise manner in order to achieve our goal : the creation of a super fast bike that is not only fast by being aerodynamic but also light and stiff, all while offering superb traction.
Carbon lay-up for us is key, it’s about selecting for each location the right fibers, right orientations, right thicknesses ( number of plys ), right reinforcements when necessary. For example, the bottom bracket area has to resist higher forces than the head tube does, the same goes for each part of the frame and fork, this is one aspect in which LOOK’s expertise makes a huge difference.
Stiffness – Weight – Traction…
The new 795 BLADE RS is made with a mix of different carbon fibres. We combine these fibres to optimize the different performance parameters.
HM : High Modulus
« High-end » fibers. Their stiffness rating is very high, about double that of HR. These fibers are used wisely because they are more brittle. HM fibers allow added stiffness with the lowest weight penalty.
IM : Intermediate Modulus
They have good resistance and fall somewhere between HM and HR of which they are a good complement.
HR : High Resistance
High resistance fibers are less stiff in elongation but can resist deformations and impacts better, they are very useful in high stress areas and also in areas where controlled deformation is beneficial to the ride quality of the bike.
