Look has unveiled a new line of pedals dubbed X-Track. Primary design drivers were increased contact surface, low weight, and ease of entry and release, especially in muddy conditions. There are six models: X-Track, X-Track Race, X-Track Race Carbon, X-Track Race Carbon Ti, X-Track Rage, and X-Track Rage Plus. All are SPD compatible, meaning they'll work with Shimano cleats.
Contact width vary across the Look line depending on discipline. The new cross country X-Track Race series are 60mm, while the trail X-Track Rage are 63mm, and the enduro X-Track Rage Plus come in at 67mm. Claimed weights range from 195g per pedal for the alloy versions to 150g for carbon.
Here's pricing and a full weight breakdown:
- X-Track | $50 | 195 grams
- X-Track Race | $90 | 182 grams
- X-Track Race Carbon | $130 | 174 grams
- X-Track Race Carbon Ti | $250 | 150 grams
- X-Track Rage | $75 | 227 grams
- X-Track Rage Plus | $130 | 218 grams
Highlight features of the new pedals include lateral contact support that helps guide your foot into your pedal, and provides a point of contact even if you have not yet engaged the cleat. This wide contact area also prevents your foot from sliding on the pedal body and offers support.
The mechanism is also designed to work regardless of external conditions (think mud). Increased space allows for better debris shedding and gives the user a more constant and stable feeling of being securely clipped in.
Tension is adjustable via a screw allowing the user to tune entry and release resistance. And the pedals spindle is equipped with a double weather-resistant seal that's designed to withstand sloppy riding conditions.
