New Look track bike targets the mid-range

Look has extended its track bike range to three machines with the release of the Look CR-564

New Look 564 will be sold as frame-only in the UK

The CR-564 is based on Look’s top-end L96 track bike and will be sold in the UK as a frameset for £1799. The frame is made of carbon fibre and comes with a carbon fork and carbon seatpost included. The frame tubes have an aerodynamic profile and Look claims that the bottom bracket area has been built for exceptional stiffness.

The new model fills the gap between the entry-level aluminium 464, which is aimed at track schools and beginners, and the brand’s top model, the L96, which is ridden by Francois Pervis, the French track star and victor in the keirin and kilometre at the 2015 track world championships, which were held in February in Saint-Quentin en Yvelines in France, where 11 national teams were riding Look track bikes.
