LOOK Cycle's new 765 Optimum bikes are built for endurance

Published January 8, 2023

(BRAIN) — LOOK Cycle's new 765 Optimum bike and frame line is made for endurance road riding.

The Optimum is an evolution of LOOK's popular 765 series, redesigned from the ground up to offer a less aggressive rider fit than previous pro tour models, maximizing rider comfort and efficiency for long days, rougher roads, and all seasons. An endurance-specific carbon layup dampens vibrations more efficiently than previous materials, LOOK said.

The new endurance-optimised geometry of the 765 OPTIMUM frame deploys LOOK's 3D wave carbon tubes for 20 percent more compliance than the previous model.

The frame uses a T47 bottom bracket, offers tire clearance up to 700 x 34 mm, and has integrated cable routing designed for simple maintenance. The cables enter the frame below the handlebar allowing for the stem and bars to be removed without disconnecting the hydraulic hoses. The new 765 OPTIMUM frame will be compatible with LOOK's fenders, which will be available in early 2023.

Frederic Caron, product manager at LOOK Cycle, said, "The new 765 OPTIMUM is the ideal bike for daily rides as well as the next sporting challenge. Designed in France by our teams of passionate engineers, it offers a compromise between rigidity and flexibility that will allow endurance cyclists to fully enjoy the long-distance rides that lie ahead. LOOK's unique know-how and innovative materials means our brand excels in mastering the complex alchemy between comfort and performance. Utilizing an all-new design which combines several carbon fibers and weaves plus our 3D Wave technology, the new 765 OPTIMUM is an endurance bike that will accompany passionate cyclists on all types of routes."


The 765 OPTIMUM is available in 5 sizes, with five options for complete bikes with Shimano and Campagnolo groups, and two frameset color options.

Complete bike prices France from $4,300 (Ultegra 2x11) to $7,300 (Ultegra Di2 2x12).  Framesets retail for $2,400.
