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 in 2009. The concept: a carbon leaf spring (blade) replaces the traditional wound wire cleat retention spring.
Look KEO Blade Carbon Ti Advantages:
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: 95g with a TI axle
Look KEO Blade Carbon Ti Proven Efficiency:
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
The new titanium axle system in the KEO Blade does not affect pedal height despite the use of an oversized axle.
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 Anonymous Hard to fault
I have now used these pedals on four rides. I bought the 16Nm version.
They are easy to engage. Occasionally I still accidentally knock the pedal over when I paw at it with my foot, but I am confident that this is just me taking a little while to get used to the new pedals. They are certainly easier than the non-Keo Look-style pedals that I have previously had to locate and clip into.
The 16Nm tension is not at all tight to engage or disengage from (I weigh 73kgs). However, I don't feel like I am at any risk of ever accidentally pulling my foot out and they feel completely secure once engaged.
These pedals have a distinctly larger pedal platform than my previous non-Keo Look-style pedals (which in fact only had a tiny contact area), but I honestly can't tell the difference when I'm riding.
There was a bit of squeaking from the pedals on my second ride, but it was an extremely misty/foggy day that day, so it is possible that the squeak was somehow contributed to by some moisture somewhere - and I haven't noticed any squeaks before or since then. (I have no conflict of interest to declare in writing this review - I do not work in any part of the cycling industry etc.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Love the pedals
Love these pedals, have been riding Looks for years including 357's and the original Keo's. These are light, huge platform and spin very easily.
The only small issue I have with them is as others have pointed out is that they hang more "upside down" than other Looks which means half the time I'm trying to clip into the back rather than the front. Other style Looks tend to hang with the tip of the pedal at about 11 O'clock or almost straight up and down, where these tend to hang at about 10'O'clock, doesn't seem like a lot, but it makes a big difference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great product
These were my first pair of clipless pedels and i was amazed about the performance improvement. These are so smooth and After a couple of falls from still these are so easy to use. I have the lowest nm version and using the carbon fiber blade reduces weight lots, they are easy to install if you have a 8mm alen key as a pedal spanner cant be used.
Now after 1000 miles i am finally changing the cleats for the normal non grip ones. Overall these are the besr purchase i have ever made for ease of pedaling, lightness and performance improovements,

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Incredibly Firm
I bought this a few months ago, after using the Keo 2 Max for 6 months.
I decided on the 16NM one because I like a firm feel.
All I can say is WOW! incredibly firm, increased power transfer (still do to testing with power meter and IDT)
also nice and light, look the part too. Very cool loud click when you clip in.
Only downside I can find so far would be that they usually lie cleat side down, and because they are so light you can accidentally turn them 360 instead of 180.
but still 5/5!

These pedals are the best I have ever had, they stick to your shoes like glue and jet so easy to click out of. They are expensive, but worth every single penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous How light and better in every way than my old Keo carbons
Got these Blades a couple of months ago after
using Keo carbons for about 2 years! Was a bit worried
about the cost of the new pedal, but turns out they are
fantastic. The clip in over standard Keos is 10 times better
(16n)they feel lighter on the foot smooth and have greater
support, I find them easier to locate at traffic lights and after
quick dismounts. If you have the dosh buy, you won't look back.

As a dedicated look pedal system fan; I just can't fault these! They are light, smooth, look great!
I can't understand why the other review says they hang weirdly? They are like all other Look pedals, so probably just because they are coming from MTB pedal systems.
I use the 16NM pedals and they are so easy to clip in and out of and yet hang on to your feet like nothing else for those big efforts out of the saddle!
These paired with Specialized S-Works shoes makes for an incredibly light pedalling action that is like no other!

Esto es la diferencia en los niveles de retención del pedal con las calas. Una tensión normal es la 12nM(Nanómetros) y algo más justo o más fuerte es la de 16Nm(Nanómetros). Es recomendable la versión de 16Nm para ciclistas que utilizan más retención entre los pedales y el calzado, por ejemplo un Velocista, utilizaría esta medida.
