Super-high modulus carbon for climb-friendly lightweight frame, hydraulic disc brakes for control on descents, the new Look 785 Huez RS is a climber’s dream, with a premium price tag to match.

The new 785 Huez also boasts the Z crankset, which is a screwless and boltless design, with a claimed weight for the carbon parts of only 320g and double the stiffness of any alloy crankset.

The cranks also give you the option to change the effective length with a small insert that allows you to switch between 170mm, 172.5mm and 175mm.

Tyre clearance is generous — up to 30mm tyres can be accommodated within the frame, and the wheels come with tubeless rims and tyres.

This all weighs in, according to Look, at 6.8kg for the set-up (as seen in the video below), complete with disc brakes. That puts it spot-on the UCI’s legal limit, and makes it pretty darn light.
