Hello all,

I searched but could not find much info on the Look S track ti carbon, let alone the Sauser cage accessory. I'm interested in the versatility these offer, and it looks like they would shed dirt really well when cage-less. Any info or advise appreciated. Btw, my only experience is with xt/xtr pedals...so anyone familiar with both please chime in.

Pedals are almost as personal a choice as saddles, I would suggest buying some cheap Looks initially or borrowing a set from a friend if you can, to see if you get on with the engagement/release before spending the coin on the very lovely carbon Ti versions. Personally having tried crank bros and Look, I went back to Shimano and never "looked" back :D

Very good advice, agree, but putting the cages on the Looks is a really interesting idea to me. As you may know, the cages turns them into flats. I like the versatility, without going to a heavier dual side pedal or swapping pedals all together. I have no issues with my well used xtr, just considering a change.

I use them on my hardtail MTB (Look 986) and love them! Very secure feeling, some float and not hard to get out when you need to.

I have the midrange carbon (non-Ti) version which came in a set with the cages.

Be aware that even with the cage on, the clip mechanism will still protrude, but it will nonetheless allow use of flat shoes, but not 100% comfortable.
It really is designed to be used with cleats and the cage attachment is to provide extra surface area for the shoe interface, especially when going downhill.
