It’s thirty years since Greg LeMond won the Tour de France on a Look bike and to celebrate that anniversary, Look is producing a special edition of its top-of-the-range 795.
Available in Aerolight form with front brakes integrated into the fork or Light with conventional brakes, the 795 Anniversary edition of Look’s top 795 road bike comes with SRAM Red eTap wireless shifting and Look’s own Zed 3 chainset.
Watch: how much faster are aero wheels?
The 795 is lightweight and aero with aerofoil tube sections and Look’s Aerostem. It’s hand-layed from more than 800 separate pieces of carbon fibre prepreg and Look says it takes 54 hours to build each frame.
Using eTap has allowed Look to make the 795’s front end even more aero, as it removes the need to route gear cables from the bars into the frame. The Zed 3 chainset is a single piece carbon structure and also very slippery, with a single set of cranks being adjustable to three different lengths.
The 30th Anniversary 795 comes in Look’s iconic Mondrian colourway, which extends as coloured flashes across the whole frame including the seat tube. Look launched the new bike near its headquarters in Nevers, France with the help of a host of pro cycling stars past and present.
The 30th Anniversary 795 with eTap shifting and Mavic’s new Cosmic Pro Carbon SLC wheelset is available from UK distributor Fisher at a price of £8299. But if you want one you’d better act quickly, as only 200 will be sold worldwide. In fact the bike is so scarce that even the Look-sponsored Fortuneo-Vital Concept pro team will only get four when it rides the Tour de France in July.
