Does anyone know how to get the replacement carbon blade for the Keo Carbon Blades? Mind broke. Also how much does it weigh?

Was it your fault? If no...

Warranty it, don't spend money on a replacement. If its out of warranty, push it until they give you a new spring.

I wonder why those would break. :noidea: :smartass:

But can you then fit it without the proprietary tool that only distributors have?

Your local bike shop will have to send it in to Look. I think they charge $20 or so for installation.

Ive replaced (swapped) blades without any special tools. All i did was remove the hinge pin for the rear "door". Personally i cant see what a special tool would do, its so easy to get the pin out.

I've broken mine 3 times in two years. Sent back to look under warranty all 3 times. I personally think it's a poor design for this reason and have gone back to Keo Max Carbon on all my bikes. I have the blades as backups but doubt I'll ever use them, since the Keo Max 2s are pretty much bulletproof.

You send it to the Look distributor in CA along with $25 and they do it for you. The catch is you can't send it if you are not an authorized dealer.
