I have a five week old pair of the new Look Keo Carbon 2018 pedals (CroMo). They will no longer hold my cleats (Look Keo Black) properly, my cleats actually 'rattle' inside the pedals when they are clipped in. And, yes - I've tried another brand new pair of cleats.

The shop will happly refund them, so atleast I didn't lose any money. I emailed Look Cycles - but no reply as yet.

If the pedals suddenly feel like they have lost tension and it becomes "soft" feeling and no "snap" when you unclick, it means the carbon pedal body has cracked. I've broken 5 of these (I weigh 165 pounds). Carefully look at the bottom of the pedal body while flexing the release.

Tons of people have problems with the Look cleat/pedal interface. Ditch them and get some Shimano Dura-Ace pedals. No more problems.
That's my experience.
I now have 105, Ultegra, and Dura Ace and none of them has given the slightest squeak or problem for the past 5 or 6 years.
I bought a pair of Look Keo Blade II when they first came out, and I really wanted to like them because they were SOOO light and sexy looking.
I ended up selling them on ebay about a month later.

Another former Keo Blade user. My issues were creaking cleats and the pedal almost always had to be flipped over with my foot to clip in. I road Time Xpresso 12’s until they finally went bad. Now I’m on the Dura Ace 9100 pedals and creak free and the pedal flips on its own and is ready to engage when I am. They are not the lightest but just work.
