For even more powerful and comfortable pedalling, the contact area of the Keo 2 Max Carbon has been increased by 12% compared to the Keo Carbon. In order to further optimise power transmission and the life of the pedal, this surface is made of stainless steel and is shaped into the pedal body.
At only 130 g, the Keo 2 Max is one of the lightest pedals in its category. This is due to the use of composites that allow weight savings without affecting resistance.
Particular attention has been paid to reliability: Composite body, INOX contact surface, oversize axle and double density make this pedal a particularly safe and durable product.
Thanks to the new axle design of the Keo 2 Max, the contact height can be maintained while using an oversize titanium axle. It consists of 2 miniature ball bearings (12 mm inside x 18 mm outside) and a needle bearing. LOOK axles are only released after a rotational test of 1 million cycles at 100 rpm with a load of 90 kg on the centre of the pedal and an eccentric rotation (one shock at each revolution). This test exceeds the highest applicable standard in this area: EN standard EN14781.
A double seal guarantees a particularly long service life of the bearings.
Setting the Q-factor
Thanks to its 14 mm long thread, the new LOOK axis allows the Q-factor to be set to 2 mm with the aid of a specific spacer, which is available as an individual part. This allows a change from 53 to 55 mm.
