The Kéo Carbon Blade: Where innovation meets evolution The Kéo Blade is a mechanically revolutionary new pedal that changes the way clipless pedals feel and perform. The Kéo Blade was awarded the well know IF Design Award. The concept: a carbon leaf spring (blade) replaces the traditional wound wire cleat retention spring.
A more efficient and quicker clip-in clip-out sensation and more secure cleat retention
Two levels of cleat retention and security (tension 12 average and 16 firmer)
Very light: 115g with a Crmo axle
A more efficient pedal stroke due to the larger cleat contact surface and more wear resistant due to the stainless plate molded into the pedal body.
The KEO Carbon Blade has a 31% larger contact surface than the KEO Carbon
New axle system = extreme reliability
Double sealed oversized pedal axle makes this a durable and reliable product
Tested above and beyond industry standards
LOOK pedal axles are only approved for use after very rigorous shock and extreme use testing well beyond the EN14781 testing standards.
Ride the pedal Alberto Contador rides and benefit from the technology that wins the Tour de France.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Napyure Super light, and no problems yet.
One of the lightest pedals on the market, and at the current discounts, this is one of the better valued products as far as weight savings vs. cost
there is a ti axle version, but I couldn't justify the extra cost to save 40 grams

I changed to these blade pedals after the carbon max pedals, these have better support on your feet. My brother changed to these also and found them much better.
My only complaint is one of the spring tensioners broke after 9 months of use.
I hope it will be covered under warranty as I have to put my old set back on.
Still great pedals though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Light, sturdy and decently priced
Light enough because of the carbon, cheap enough since not titanium.
Just a great set of pedals.
16nm version is not a problem in stepping in or out. I probably would have been a little anxious of the cleats disengaging if I had the the 12nm version.
Am a 75kg male with no extraordinary powers.
Would recommend to anyone.

I'm a great fan of Look pedals, owning a previous model without any problems for seven years. I bought a pair of these pedals, 16nm, last summer and they worked well. However on a training ride recently the left pedal completely fell apart, it sheared in two scattering pieces onto the road....I am not a heavy rider - 68kg - nor had I been riding excessive mileage so I was very surprised. Hopefully a one-off!
CRC have quickly agreed a refund.

These pedals are light and comparatively cheap - well worth the investment. They have a super solid click in and have never come out, or threatened to come out. I'm a medium build all rounder doing the odd club race and challenging in the sprints and have been impressed with the security and feel.
I have the 16NM version and found it fine to clip in and out of, a firm twist with the ankle and out she comes.
They come with a set of grey 4.5 degree cleats too.
This is a product you can get excited about, you'll want to ride more with these bad boys on your cranks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Cracked pedal
I got this pair of Look KEO Blade Carbon pedals on my Specialized SL2 road bike in November 2011. A few months ago, I noticed that the left pedal didn't, "click in" particularly well. It did lock in, but very loosely. I could pull out of the pedal if I pulled up too hard. Today, I had a look at them and noticed there were a number of cracks around the spring casing. I did some Google searches and discovered that this is not an uncommon problem. I'm lead to believe they have a 2 year warranty so am going to push for that and see what happens. Given this experience, I'm going to drop back to a stronger(?) metal pedal to try and get some longevity. The last thing I want is for the pedal to disintegrate part way through a long ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous These are very nice pedals. They gets rave reviews on the web, making you think they may be revolutionary compared to other quality pedals, which is not quite the case in my opinion. They do give a very nice solid 'click' engagement, feel very secure and are smooth to disengage. But then, my old Look Delta pedals weren't too bad either, even though by today's standard they are considered a pretty basic pedal. Locating the toe to initiate engagement is definitely a bit easier on the Blades.
The Blades are impressively lightweight, and appear to be of very high quality construction. I have some concerns about the vulnerability of the carbon spring to accidental pedal strike on tight corners, or in crashes.
I have the 16Nm version, and I would say that anyone already familiar with using clipless pedals should have no problem with this retention level. I find them smoother and slightly easier to disengage compared to how I had my old Delta pedals set up, and only slightly stiffer than the XT and XTR SPDs on my mountain bikes. I haven't tried the 12Nm variant, but would assume they would really only be the preferred option for clipless novices or particularly lightweight riders (I'm 70kg).
Note that numerous reviews elsewhere on the web refer to these pedals coming with TWO sets of cleats (grey "grip" cleats as well as the non-grip ones), plus cleat covers. These descriptions may be historical. The pedals currently sold by CRC come ONLY with one set of the grip cleats, and no pedal covers. But, of course, the price is MUCH lower than the original RRP on these pedals.
I can't compare directly with contemporary Ultegra or Dura-ace pedals, which are the obvious competitors to this pedal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Salve,
Vorrei sapere se questi sono i primi modeli usciti o sono quelli con la modifica sulla lama in carbonio.
