LOOK T20 Speed Track Frameset
This item is available for pre-order only, as you will need to select a stem, crank length and handlebar size at time of order. Please call our store or email us for more information on lead time and delivery.
DESIGNED TO WIN 30 years of partnership with the French Federation
As a leader in technological innovation, LOOK has won the most medals in the history of the Summer Games and has always taken pride in providing partner federations and athletes with the best equipment available on the market.
Trust is an integral part of this history: racers and federations trust LOOK to provide them with state-of-the-art equipment when LOOK develops, tests, perfects and distributes these market leading products. The cycling community can only attest to the success of this synergy with the world's biggest competitions.
The next big events will be no exception with the new LOOK T20 track bike. A bike that meets the evolving demands of athletes in terms of power, speed and endurance.
LOOK engineers and carbon experts have worked tirelessly, focusing on the interaction between athlete and bike to achieve new standards of performance on the track.
AERODYNAMICS are absolutely key
Of all the disciplines on the program for major competitions - road, CLM, track, MTB, BMX - track bikes have the highest average speeds.
At LOOK, engineers work with athletes to help them get as close to 100% power transfer between themselves and their bike as possible. A true collaboration to optimise every element of performance using cutting-edge methods: from analysing the performance of previous prototypes, to hours of CFD evaluation, to confirming these results on the track and in one of the most recognised wind tunnels in the industry.
11% drag reduction 10% lighter than its predecessor The LOOK T20 offers + 27% power transfer thanks to an optimized stiffness-to-weight ratio At full speed on the track, athletes gain 30 Watts, simply the length of a bike at the finish line for a 200 metre sprint!
LOOK & CORIMA Design integration
Different rear triangle configurations were tested in a wind tunnel on a prototype modular frame to confirm the CFD results simulating the interaction between the frame and the rotating rear wheel.
LOOK is able to provide its athletes with complete feedback (from tests performed in two different wind tunnels) on the CORIMA wheels associated with the LOOK T20 frame. The CORIMA Track wheels are the best in their class on the market, and perform even better when mounted on the LOOK T20.
Aerodynamic thru axles have been used on the front wheel of the R96 bike for the last few years. The combination of CORIMA wheels and the LOOK T20 will now allow the use of thru axle technology on the front and rear wheels.
EVEN LIGHTER AND STIFFER
UCI LIMIT OF 6.8 KG IS ACHIEVED Track racers are so powerful that they require a higher level of bike to transfer all their power to the wood track. That's what track bikes are made for and LOOK's expertise in this area is unmatched.
The engineers aim to obtain the highest possible rigidity to ride at the highest speeds on the smoothest surfaces of all cycling disciplines: a wooden track.
Aerodynamics and stiffness are essential, but we must never forget that many track events are run from a standing start. That's why the stiffness/weight ratio is always at the centre of LOOK teams' and athletes' concerns.
This factor is considered at every stage of product development, from the design of the parts and manufacturing processes to the application of the final carbon layer, including the application of a finish that only impacts the weight of the frame by a few grams.
A bottom bracket 25% stiffer than the R96 Rear triangle 12.5% stiffer than the R96 Head tube 12% stiffer than the R96 Head tube 12% stiffer than the R96.
A STILL UNRIVALED ZED CRANKSET The ZED one-piece track crankset was developed before the 2012 Games and remains unmatched 8 years later. It is simply the lightest and stiffest track crankset on the market. It's also the only crankset that allows for crank length adjustment through the patented Trilobe design.
The bike is developed in symbiosis with the crankset, taking into account the overall rigidity. Our engineers never consider the components separately, but rather how they function as a whole.
The one-piece composition of the crankset allows for perfect control of the carbon layers in all parts of the frame, eliminating the difficulties of crank and axle joints, molding or gluing of inserts, or post-machining of these inserts.
A UNIQUE REAR THRU AXLE Which is also compatible with standard track wheels
Thru axles made their debut on the R96 front wheel. The goal was to improve torsional stiffness at the front of the bike while reducing weight and improving aerodynamics, as engineers removed the entire surface (the "S" of "SCx") of the nuts used to tighten the front wheel.
The next step was to implement the same gains at the rear of the bike, the engineers succeeded in doing so on the LOOK T20 and went even further. They developed a thru axle for the rear wheel, the cleanest ever seen on a track bike. Even better, it allows for structural stiffening of the rear dropouts, areas that are "open" and therefore benefit greatly from the extra stiffness.
The torsional stiffness of the rear triangle is globally improved thanks to the through axle, adding to the gains already obtained with the new materials and processes.
INFINITE SET UP OPTIONS 4 sizes – from the smallest bike we can make to the largest bike the UCI allow; 2 ZED crankset models combined with 6 available crank lengths; 18 stem lengths from 55mm to 140mm in 5 mm increments and which are adjustable to any angle; A new seat post offering 4 seat tube angles depending on how and in which direction the seat post clamp is installed.
CUSTOMISED SEAT POST The T20 does not require cutting the frame in order to adjust the saddle height. It is now the seat post that has to be cut (and can be easily replaced if necessary) and can then be adjusted with up to 15mm of spacers underneath.
AVAILABLE IN TWO VERSIONS The SPEED version is delivered with LOOK's TRACK HANDLEBAR.
The TT version is delivered with LOOK's AEROFLAT TT HANDLEBAR with AERGO EXTENSIONS which are also in a class of their own when it comes to aerodynamics and adjustability.
INCLUDES Frame & Fork Seat Post with 2 toppers Seat Post Spacers Drop Out Plates for Bolt on Wheels and Through-Axles (Front & Rear) Stem (Size to be determined at time of order) Sprint Handlebar (Size to be determined at time of order) ZED Cranks (Size to be determined at time of order) Aero plates for rear drop out to suit both Thru-Axle and Bolt on Wheels
