Look 795 Light Premium Road Frame 2017
ULTRALIGHT AND ULTRA AERO
The 795 Light possesses all the qualities of the 795 AEROLIGHT without the integrated brakes. 1.5k carbon frame made with NACA certified tubing, angle adjustable carbon AEOSTEM, ZED3 carbon monobloc crankset, E-Post 2 seatpost with integrated Di2 battery, 100% internal cable routing
The result is an elegant looking, aerodynamic and ultralight bicycle. The 795 LIGHT is particularly recommended for competitors and cyclists looking for highest possible performance and improved aerodynamics.
30 years of experience in carbon and 10 years of experience in specific research conducted by our design department have made it possible today to introduce you to the most aerodynamic road bike ever built: the 795 Aerolight. With its 11 patents, it is without doubt the bike that embodies the most technology. New 1.5k carbon frame with NACA* aerofoil section tubes, Aerostem carbon stem, ZED3 one-piece carbon crankset, new E-Post2 with Di2 battery mount, 100% integrated cable routing… all parts of the 795 Aerolight have been designed down to the last detail to offer you this extraordinary machine.
LIGHTWEIGHT AND AERODYNAMIC ROAD BIKE
The 795 is one of this new generation of bikes that pushes the performance envelope even further. In addition to the qualities to be found on high-end bikes such as efficiency, light weight and comfort, the 795 boasts an additional advantage: aerodynamics. The many integrated features boasted by the 795 and increasingly precise carbon compositions mean that it is possible to build an aerodynamic road bike today without increasing weight. The 795 weighs the same as the highly efficient and renowned 695 while achieving much better aerodynamics. A complete bike can therefore happily keep within the 6.5 kg limit. In order to achieve truly improved aerodynamics, all tube sections have this teardrop shape (see diagram below) that reduces turbulence behind the tubes and helps maintain high speeds. Not only the seat tube and down tube, but also the head tube, fork and stays have been designed with this shape known as the NACA aerofoil, validated by aerodynamics engineers then wind-tunnel tested.
BRAKE INTEGRATIONThe 795 is available with or without integrated brakes. In the version known as “AEROLIGHT” both sets of brakes are integrated, in the “LIGHT” version the brakes are conventional, i.e. located in front of the fork and at the top of the seat stays. The front brakes on the 795 Aerolight, of the mechanical V-brake type, are located centrally in the fork legs in a housing that forms a window. This means that the calliper is fully concealed within the fork in order to achieve the best possible aerodynamics. The brake cable and sheath follow an exclusive routing since they enter under the stem to be routed inside it and “drop down” inside the steering tube to operate the calliper. External fitting is also possible however and the calliper may be operated from the left or from the right. The rear brakes are the Shimano Direct Mount standard, they are located under the chain stays and also feature integrated cable routing through the down tube and under the bottom bracket shell.
NEW EXCLUSIVE 100% INTEGRATED ROUTINGS
With the focus still on aerodynamics, mechanical and electrical cables on the 795 are routed in an entirely new way. The cables are collected at the front of the head tube so as to bypass the bearings and be distributed inside the frame. The rear derailleur cable emerges behind the hanger, and for an electronic configuration even junction A, which is usually housed under the stem, is built into the frame, behind the stem. Note: on the AEROLIGHT model, the front brake cable can be routed either internally, in which case the sheath passes through the stem and the steering tube, or externally. In this case the sheath operates the front brakes from the outside either on the left or the right-hand side.
