I'm going to put my two cents in to Look Keo Blade carbon. I rode time before.
the looks give me a better range of cleat adjustment options. the TI spindle version is light enough for me and I like the feel of the tension and the float.
Ok, i switched few rides ago on Look Keo2 Max Carbon pedals (i bought them last season, just to test Look system). Also wanted to test which tension is good for me and since i ride two clicks In from the lowest settings, i guess this is comparable to Look Keo 2 Carbon 12Nm (good i tried, as first i think that 16Nm will be the right one).
But please someone confirm me this. If i ride Look Keo2 Max Carbon two clicks in from the lowest setting, i need 12Nm or 16Nm Look Keo 2 Carbon?
And i can see 2017 version of Keo 2 Max Carbon Ti, beeing cheaper then just Keo 2 Max Carbon Ti. Is there any difference at all between 2017 version and older version ?
Now let me compare Look Keo2 Max Carbon to my Time:
- Clip In
Its definetly easier on Time Xpresso, but maybe im not used of this Look (since i ride them only for last 300 km).
The problem i have with Look is that they are always on wrong side, so i need to look down to find where to clip in. I guess i'll get used of it after more riding.
- Clip Out
On Time it's to easy for me, and i have often cliped out when i dont want. On Look its better. There is a moment when u know u are clipping out
- Whole feeling
Seem that i prefer Look vs Time. On Time when i push hard, i hate that lateral movement, and also sometimes i feel like this take some of my energy in that movement. On Look its stiff feeling, and i can feel whole my energy is going where should be going.
On Time it's easier to setup clits to dont have knee pain, on Look first ride i had some pain, but i adjusted very easy and now everything fine (im using 4.5 degrees gray cleats).
On Time no Any Creaking, on Look first ride i had some, but on last ride (134 km), no creaking at all.
I have fer meters i need to walk until i start riding (like 10-15 meters). Better waling on the look cleats, and also seem that Look Cleats will last much more (on Time this is the weakest point. I was buying new cleats every 1500 km, max i rode was 3000 km but in reality i should replace them much earlier).
I'll give few more rides, but until now seem that i really like how Look Keo system works. If this continue in few more rides, ill switch to Keo Blade 2 Carbon Ti, since they are very light. Just hope that they'll have the same feeling as Keo Max 2 Carbon im riding now.
Another thing why i wanted to test Look setup, is because of powermeters based on their cleats. Very interested in BePro Pedal based Power Meter
