Cyclist Track Day Focus: Your chance to ride the Look 785 Huez RS

Cyclist magazine
16 Mar 2018

One of the world's lightest bikes off of the peg will be on offer for you to ride at the Cyclist Track Days

The best climber at the 2017 Tour de France was not Chris Froome (Team Sky). It wasn't his teammate Mikel Landa either or Romain Bardet (AG2R La Mondiale) or Rigoberto Uran (EF-Drapac). It was in fact Warren Barguil (Fortuneo-Oscaro). 

Victory in two mountain stages and the King of the Mountain jersey proved that. He was unmatched at times. What's more, if he'd have been racing on his new team bike, the Look 785 Huez RS, he would have probably climbed even faster.

Why? Well the Look Huez 785 Huez RS is one of the lightest bikes in the world. So light, it's actually not even legal in the professional peloton, and this is your chance to ride one.

The frame is a mere 730g and when fitted with the weenie Corima Winium+ tubular wheelset tips the scales at an insanely light 5.9kg. 

Take a glance at this bike and you may be worried that it will crumble underneath you at such a weight but no, Look has placed extra focus on the strength of the carbon used. 

Thanks to using an ultra high modulus (UHM) carbon, the bike has a tensile strength of 60 tons/square mm yet remains a smooth ride with this ultra-tough carbon only lacing 10% of the frame.

The tubes are very thin, 0.6mm at their smallest, which also keeps the weight down to a level that rivals that of the Cannondale SuperSix and Trek Emonda.

Look also uses a unique ZED one-piece crankset and a skinny 27.2mm seatpost.

The Look 785 Huez RS will be one of the bikes available at the Cyclist Track Days in which you will be able to test the world's best bikes at four special events across three purpose-built tracks.

Held this Spring, you will get the chance to test the Look 785 Huez among other bikes from the likes of BMC, Canyon, Bianchi, Cannondale, Specialized and many more.

Also on the day, ticket holders will be treated to a hot lunch, a Cyclist goody bag and most importantly unlimited cycling.

There will also be members of the Cyclist editorial and experts from the brands on site to talk you through the technical aspects of the bikes.
