Look 566 Shimano 105
The 566 frameset has been designed and fine tuned for responsiveness and a comfortable ride. This frame was developed for those cyclists who want to ride for several kilometers/miles at a fast pace to a leisurely pace. This bike is for cyclists looking for comfort and will do on occasional race or century.
LOOK’s twenty plus years of carbon technology allow us to manufacture a feather weight frame that is light without compromising the overall rigidity and ride performance. Some particular areas are oversized, stiff and light, like the bottom braquet and the main tube with a squared section.
The 566 utilizes a propietary blend of high modulus & high resistance carbn fiber, which results in a lightweight frame that is amazingly comfortable to ride, yet inspires confidence on descents. With Look's superb attention to detail, the 566 is a extremely well constructed frame that rivals the quality of more expensive framesets, entry-level quality this bike is not.
New Compact Geometry
The 566 has a compact geometry with a taller head tube than our standard geometry and a slightly shorter sloping top tube. As a result, we get an ideal position for the cyclists allowing to ride in comfort thus riding longer and faster.
The tuned flattened top tube allows for the frame to offer a compliant ride, while not compromising on stiffness,
The «X Design» stays were created to have both lateral stiffness for responsiveness and vertical compliance for comfort. The flatten tube was designed to create a virtual point of flex in the chain and seat stays.
The 100% carbon single-piece fork weighs 350 g uncut and meets the new Standard EN 14781 safety test requirement (front impact of 144 joules). The shape of the fork is studied to increase comfort and the stability on the bike : the head of the fork is oversized stiffness and the section decrease when going down the legs to keep a good flexibility.
