The Kéo Blade is a mechanically revolutionary new pedal that changes the way clipless pedals feel and perform. The innovation of this pedal is driven by safety, lightness, comfort, efficiency and reliability.
The concept: a carbon leaf spring (blade) replaces the traditional wound wire cleat retention spring.
POSITIVE CLEAT ENGAGEMENT AND DISENGAGEMENT: The new concept of the Keo Blade Carbon is based on a carbon blade spring, which provides a 30% higher linear spring tension feel than the 2009 Keo Carbon. The result is a more positive spring rate feeling, allowing a more distinct entry and release.
These advantages make the pedal very secure, allowing the removal of the spring tension adjustment. However to satisfy all cyclists, 2 different spring tension blades are available for the Keo Blade Carbon: 12Nm, which will suit most cyclists, and 16Nm for racers seeking even higher tension.
VERY LIGHT WEIGHT(115g): The use of the Blade concept, combined with a new material injected with longer carbon fibres allows us to maintain a weight of 115g, while still improving its strength and durability. This new material blend uses carbon fibres of over 10mm in length, where previous bodies were limited to only 1mm to 2mm.
WIDE PLATFORM AND LARGER PLATFORM SURFACE AREA: For an even more efficient pedal and greater stability, the Keo Blade Carbon has a pedal platform that is 31% larger in surface area, and more importantly, 17 % wider than a Keo Carbon. To further improve power transmission and to extend the pedal's service life, the platform now features an over-moulded stainless steel plate in the body of the pedal.
EXTREMELY RELIABLE: Special attention was paid to reliability: very durable body, bi-injected lever, a new STAINLESS STEEL platform area, a new oversized axle and triple bearings make this pedal an extremely safe and durable pedal. Bi-injected lever : the lever's two materials have very specific roles: one brings an excellent mechanical behaviour, while the other reduces cleat friction.
KEO BLADE CARBON CROMOLY PROFILE: The new oversized Kéo Blade Carbon axle maintains a minimum overall stack height. It is composed of 2 miniature roller bearings (12 mm interior x 18 mm exterior) and a needle bearing. LOOK axles are only validated for production after a rotational test of 1 million cycles at 100 rpm, with a load of 90kg on the centre of the pedal, as well as an off-centre rotation (which creates a shock at each rotation). This test is more stringent than the most demanding standard currently enforced: EN1047Bl.
Dual seals ensure a very long service life of the roller bearings.
Q-FACTOR SETTINGS: Keo Blade axle threads are now 14mm in length. This allows a Q-Factor adjustment an additional 2mm using a specific spacer, available as a spare part. It can increase the Q Factor measurement from 53 to 55mm.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
If you're a newbie to clip-in pedals you are probably safer going with the ones which are easier to unclip (12) as you're less likely to have an accident if you need to un-clip suddenly. As a beginner you're also less likely to need the additional tension as you are most likely not going to be pedalling as hard as a pro.
Please contact Look directly for further assistance.
They do come in 2 preset tension (yelow and red).
Tension is provided by the slide of carbon (hence the name).
Perhaps check your cleats are the right type, and ensure they are clean. Or is it possible tyour old ones were worn and might take a while to get used to the new ones?
I have noticed a greater float with these pedals than previous generations. I would recommend the grays, but that may be a question better answered by your doctor.
Does this mean that I can fit Look cleats onto these shoes or not? Sorry of my ignorance!
