Look 30th Anniversary - 795
“the most aerodynamic road bike ever built”
Rather than compare itself to its rivals’ products, however, Look took it’s existing 695 frameset and, with the application of NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) aerofoil tubes, created a frame with almost a 12% aerodynamic saving while also increasing its stiffness. Coupled with a new HSC8 aero fork, Look has managed to avoid adding an weight to the frame, with differences to the 695 negligible.
Like the 695, the 795 Aerolight features integrated brakes, with Look’s own design inside the fork blades and a Shimano Dura-Ace direct mount calliper beneath the bottom bracket. These brakes, says Look, are “20% more powerful than traditional brakes,” as well as having the advantage of being hidden away from the wind.
Coming over from another of Look’s frames – the 675 – is the integrated aerostem, which is now adjustable between +17 and -13 degrees – equivalent to 57mm of spacers – so as to provide the ideal fit without compromising on the aerodynamics. The cables enter the head tube, just below this stem, passing around the headset – with the integrated front brake cable actually passing through the centre of the steerer tube – to minimise their effect on the front of the bike’s profile.
Alongside the Aerolight, the 795 comes in a slightly simpler Light version. This version is identical to the Aerolight, aside from the conventional brake callipers in place of the integrated units, and so would theoretically be mechanical Campagnolo compatible. This will be the version that will be ridden by Pro teams thanks to the brakes being more-easily adjustable in the case of a different width rim from a wheel change.

Love that stem.
