The 785 Huez is Look’s climber’s bike, launched last year just before the Tour de France.

Now there’s a disc brake version, launched at Eurobike. It comes with tubeless-ready Hutchinson Fusion 11Storm 28mm tyres, taking advantage of the improved clearance allowed by discs over rim brake calipers. Look says that the lower inflation pressures this allows add grip, improve ground contact on less even surfaces and add ride comfort. It also cites the easier, faster descending with more powerful, more consistent braking.
