Look's Keo Grip Cleats function the same as
the older Keo cleats once they're engaged in a Look Keo or Keo 2 pedal.
It's what they do the rest of the time that is so different. Look has
done a great job at re-imagining their cleat, seeing what others have
done, seeing what they could do better, and executing that vision.
two things everyone will point to are the non-skid rubber pads
underneath the "toe" and "heel" portions of the cleats. While those pads
are pretty nice, and they do a good job of making walking easier and
adding durability to the cleats. It's the center pad and what's
underneath it that we're excited about.
The center pad is no big
deal on its own; it sits atop the center of the pedal and should reduce
lateral slop on the cleat/pedal interface. It is the memory clip
underneath that we groove on. The memory clip makes it easy to replace
cleats. This clip sits hidden underneath the cleat but it is locked into
place in that fourth groove that many new shoes come with. You can find
it on at least the following shoes: Bontrager, Sidi, high end
Cannondale, and carbon soled Chain, Diadora, DMT, Gaerne, Northwave
There are three float options for the cleats, fixed aka
zero float (Black) cleats, 4.5-degrees float (Grey) cleats, and
9-degrees of float (Red) cleats. Look pedals come standard with the Grey
cleats. All three cleats come with 4mm of lateral adjustment and 9mm of
The Keo Grip Cleat replacement kit
comes with two cleats, six 5x11mm screws, and six rectangular washers.
The memory clip is in the cleat. The claimed weight on a pair of Look
Keo Grip Cleats is 68g including screws and washers.
