Look 675 Light review

With its steeply sloping top tube and integrated A-stem, the 675 is a distinctive bike. For the Light version it's been on a diet, with upgraded carbon and no metal components, reducing the frame weight to below 1kg. Andrew Dilkes tells all.

Having been around for a couple of years, the 675’s divisive style still looks as fresh and innovative as the day it was launched. It now sits second in line to the Look throne, with the 795 and 695 slotting in above and, having been on a diet since we last saw it back in 2013, the 675 Light now boasts a sub-kilo chassis. We’ve given this bike another shake-down to see if still delivers.
