LOOK KG196 Monoblade Time Trial, Shimano Dura Ace 7410, 59cm (1994) – SOLD

LOOK is a French bicycles manufacturer that started its fruitful history long time ago in 1951. Its founder and passionate skier Jean Beyl once broke his leg coming down a steep slope. Naturally, he blamed the rigid foot to ski connection for the torn meniscus and eventually changed sports history. Some years after he developed the first safety ski bindings, a technology which later revolutionized road cycling.

in the late 80s, the company was known not just for its pedals, but also for their top level carbon composite frames. LOOK was bringing several new high-tech stuff to the pro peloton, but when the Look KG196 Monoblade was introduced in 1990, it was a revelation.

This carbon monocoque frame was not just stunning, it was also brimming with innovative solutions. Creating a frame from a single mould was groundbreaking, but also very challenging. To achieve the best aerodynamics, the shape had to be radical with a massive down tube and bottom bracket area. The seat stays create small “shoulders” to better channel the air around the rear brake. And of course the party piece – the first integrated fork. The straight bladed carbon fork is connected to the frame by a single pivot and an elastomer vibration dampening elements.

The result was incredibly stiff frame with excellent power transfer, great aerodynamics for that time and stunning looks. No wonder that the professional teams ONCE and FESTINA were using these frames in early 90s and such riders like Laurent Jalabert, Alex Zülle and Johan Bruyneel used them for time trial, flat and sometimes also on mountain stages at the Tour de France.

Here we are iconic LOOK KG196 Monoblade Time Trial bike from 1994. For sure one of the fastest bikes from mid 1990s. Shining in original paint, built with Shimano Dura-Ace 7402/7410 groupset, full carbon time trial wheels. No much words needed.

Museum piece.
