DESCRIPTION

Look 979 AM Classic XT 2x11s Black-Fluo Yellow/Green Mountain Bike Large

The use of Hi-Mod carbon fibers on this monobloc frame creates a very lightweight bicycle without compromising its rigidity. The chainstays are oversized and the seatstays flattened. The rear triangle is designed to dampen a maximum amount of vibrations.

HM UD CARBON TECHNOLOGY


HM: High Modulus. High-end fibers. Their stiffness is very elevated, on average double that of HR fibers. The HM fibers permit more rigidity without the added weight. LOOK bicycles are made with either HM 3K or 1.5K fibers, the latter having a finer weave, therefore lighter (ie. a 1.5 fiber =1500 threads in 1 fiber).



The unidirectional fiber sheets, also known as UD: The carbon fibers on the sheet are all orientated in the same direction. A tube or any other carbon fabricated product, is made up of a succession of layers, one of the principal fabrication secrets and one of LOOK's strengths, lies in the choice of fiber orientation for each layer. This allows a very precise control over the desired behavior for each manufactured piece.



For over 30 years, LOOK has developed a unique expertise and a vast experience of combining different types of fibers to achieve specific desired properties. We know how to vary the parameters of carbon composition to give a product a desired behavior.

DCSC CONCEPT


The LOOK DCSC2 concept (Dual Comfort and Stiffness Concept 2) is the union of all the factors leading to the the successful creation of the ideal compromise between stiffness and flexibility. The headset, for example, is high enough for a comfortable riding position, and the  carbon chain and seat stays adopt a flatter in shape.



This flattening of the tube section is done without diminishing their diameter and boosts the lateral and vertical stiffness by 25 per cent.  The vertical flexibility is also improved in the process.

29" WHEELS


For its hardtail line, LOOK proposes two different wheel sizes: 27.5" or 29" wheels. Thanks to the 29" wheels, LOOK MTBs have the characteristic of making clearing obstacles easier. The grip and inertia are higher and allow riding at a higher speed. The LOOK 29er MTBs  are particularly recommended for people of average to taller height.
