Look 2008 [en]

Publié le par Adrien

It is very hard to get official information about the latest 2008 Look range. The company prefers waiting the end of the month to share both the pictures and the informations to the press. Obvious since the range is said to be available for September.
However, several shops already received the new frames and many eCommerce shops already got every informations! There is something not quite right about it, isn't it?

Here are the informations about the frames.


586

The 586 is the new frame. It is the lightest one of the new range. It is a single piece construction i.e no lugs, the seatpost is integrated and the dropouts are in carbon. It seems to be a 595 with no lugs (monocoque construction). Because of its geometry, this frame is aiming a non-racer category.
