French bike brand Look has launched a limited edition of its top-end aero road model

Look has partnered with Maserati for a charity bike ride from Paris to the car brand’s home town in Italy which takes place between 4 and 9 July. And to mark the event, it has released a limited edition of its 695 Aerolight bike. With a claimed weight of 6.86kg, the Paris-Modena version of the Look 695 is light for an aero bike.

Made of 1.5k carbon fibre and with internal routing for mechanical or electronic shifting, the bike features a number of Look proprietary technologies. The forks use an integrated brake design where the brake arms are incorporated into the fork and the cable runs within the frame, whilst the rear brake is mounted under the bottom bracket.

The groupset is Shimano Ultegra Di2, there’s an 11-28 cassette and the wheels are deep section Mavic Cosmic Pro carbon, while Look supplies the bike equipped with a set of its Keo Blade 2 pedals. The bike comes with a Masarati logo on the headtube and various sponsors’ logos on the seatstays. All this technology doesn’t come cheap though, with the 695 Aerolight priced at £6999.
