LOOK Cycle Updates Popular 785 Huez for Maximum Performance on the Longest Climbs


The latest version has been optimised for performance-demanding riders taking on prolonged efforts in the mountains

NEVERS, France (April 23, 2024) — LOOK Cycle has announced the latest iteration of its popular 785 Huez road bike, designed for long rides in the mountains. Drawing on LOOK’s extensive carbon fiber expertise, the updated 785 Huez is meticulously crafted to meet the exacting standards of the most discerning climbers. It combines lightness, responsiveness and comfort seamlessly.

The 785 Huez incorporates Nano tubes in its latest carbon lay-up, a specific design reducing the tube’s inner thickness to save weight while preserving frame performance and solidity in key areas such as chainstays, headtube, and bottom bracket. Working in conjunction with the performance-focused frame geometry it provides riders with maximum power transfer when climbing out of the saddle, alongside an optimised position for comfort when seated.

LOOK’s engineers chose high-modulus carbon fibres and thin rounded tubes constructed specifically for each frame size to offer an unbeatable stiffness-to-weight ratio and maximum power transfer while providing the right amount of comfort for longer rides. The integrated cockpit is ergonomically designed, while the frame allows for the increasingly popular 32mm tire clearance, offering riders versatility on rough roads and in mountainous weather conditions.
