This version of the 795 Blade RS aero model features the highest quality components on the market today. Setting off LOOK's expertise in carbon fiber technologies to perfection, this Proteam build features the iconic brand colors and all-new Shimano Dura Ace 9200 Di2 groupset. The electronic 12-speed shifting offers revolutionary smoothness and reliability, while the latest Corima MCC DX 47mm wheels ensure no shortcut is taken toward pure performance.
The new EPS (Extended Polystyrene) technology is used to obtain premium, ultralight products. More costly than the traditional process, it is only used for our highest performance bike models. Rather than having one single mold for each frame size, this method requires two: one for the outer shape of the frame and one for the inner. The EPS process consists of draping the layer of carbon fiber fabric over a hard polystyrene form, which is then removed. The high tech molding process avoids any folds, porosities and areas of weakness in the carbon.
This makes the 795 BLADE RS one of the lightest high performance, aerodynamic bikes on the market. The complete bike even comes in at 420 grams lighter than previously thanks to the adoption of a new AEROPOST 3 seatpost.
The seatstays of the 795 BLADE RS are designed for maximum efficiency. The absence of bridge between them and their curved shape allows them to flex under the force transmitted by the rear hub. The rear wheel never loses contact with the road, ensuring optimal power transfer and increased traction and control.
The 795 BLADE RS bottom bracket is built to pressfit BB386 standards, compatible with both 24mm axles (SHIMANO, SRAM GXP) and 30 mm axles (FSA 386 EVO, ROTOR, most SRAM 30mm cranksets). An aluminium sleeve fitted inside the frame ensures a perfect alignment of the bottom bracket and optimised pressfit tolerances.
The 795 BLADE RS frameset-only options are not delivered with the Token Ninja BB386 bottom bracket. This is available as a spare part (different models depending on the the crankset used).
Each fully-built 795 BLADE RS comes with a TOKEN NINJA BB386 threaded bottom bracket installed and dedicated tools. The threaded body of the TOKEN PRODUCTS Ninja bottom bracket is made of aluminum whilst the pressfit areas are made from a combination of PA+FIBRE. This setup ensures the bottom bracket is robust, perfectly aligned and spins smoothly without friction. It is designed as a comprehensive, high-performance unit that offers riders the fastest, quietest and most reliable components possible.
The 795 BLADE RS is designed with cable integration and easy maintenance in mind. Both the rim and disc brake framesets are compatible with mechanical or electronic groupsets.
The derailleur cables are routed through the stem and headset on both versions. The rim brake version offers cable routing from the handlebar to the front brake caliper (front brake) and to the to top tube (rear brake), the main goal being to keep brake efficiency high and maintenance easy. On the disc brake version, brake housings are combined with the derailleur cables and routed through stem and headset for an extremely tidy front end and optimised aerodynamics. Stem height adjustment is made easy thanks to spacers with specific cable routing openings in the rear.
