Look Cycle Keo 2 Max Road Pedals

Max value.

For riders who finance their own cycling aspirations, equipment choices can involve some pretty intense cost/benefit analysis to get the most out of every dollar. Thanks to a polyamide composite pedal body, the Look Cycle Keo 2 Max Road Pedals go toe-to-toe with their Keo 2 Max Carbon counterparts, without the carbon price tag.

The Keo 2 utilizes the same stainless steel wear plate found in the Keo 2 Carbon to give riders a wide, stable platform to transfer power and distribute pressure. This gives the pedal a solid feel when clipped in and reduces the potential for uncomfortable pressure points disrupting a ride. By widening only the top of the pedal, Look achieved this increase in stability compared to older versions of the Keo 2, without impacting cornering clearance.

The Keo 2 Max Road Pedals have an adjustable cleat release tension ranging from 9-15Nm and are compatible with Look cleats that come in three float options to customize the pedal system to your specific ride preferences.

  • Stainless steel wear plate
  • Wide platform
  • 15.7mm stack height
  • 53mm Q-Factor, adjustable to 55mm with spacer (sold separately)
  • Adjustable release tension

    Great pedals. Easy to switch over and all in all were a great addition to my bike.

    My first clips

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    These are the very first clips I have ever had, so I don't have much to compare them to. So far they have been great! Decently easy for me to clip in and out of.

    These Pedals Last

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These pedals last. I have put these through it all for 2 years now. They are holding up great. Light and spin with ease.

    Unanswered Question

    If i purchase these pedals, do they come with the respective shoe cleat?

    Also when selecting in the dropdown menu, which color reflects float options? First or second? (Ex. Would Black/Grey mean no float in a grey color?)

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been using Look pedals for over 15 years. I've never had an issue with them in terms of functional. The only issues I've had with them is the float I needed as I add on the miles. Currently have 2 pairs , Look Keo Max and Keo Max2. I swapped out the spindles on my Keo Max2 and dropped 20 grams each or 40 total.

    The red cleats feel great for me now. After my marathon, I really notice I needed more float. Perhaps alignment changes from running.

    What model of Look you used to ride before keo2max? I've been using look keo classic & classic 2, do you think I'll noticed about any difference?

    I had the classics.. it's different but not a lot. I think the classic are actually slighlty easier to clip. The Keo Max do have a larger platform and nice when you are smashing it.

    dumb question I suspect, but....

    is the price for a pair, or per pedal?

    That is a great question, and it happens more times then you would think. All of our pedals are sold as a pair. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to e-mail me. dmyers@backcountry.com

    Why wouldn't they be? Does your computer depend on what pedals you use?
