Style Look KG 86 made in 1986
This is Look's first-ever carbon bike. In fact, it's Look's first ever bike, Made here in the look factory in Nevers.
In the early 1980s Look produced steel frames using Reynolds tubing but not beneath the umbrella of the Look brand. Instead they were branded for teams like La Vie Claire who became synonymous with Bernard Hinault and Greg LeMond.
Both Hinault & Lemond used this bike at the 1986 Tour de France with LeMond riding it to victory although not everyone on the team used it maybe two or three others because it was a very minimal production run and some of the riders were also reluctant to switch from steel or aluminium. After its success, all the La Vie Claire riders were riding it the following year.
We used TVT carbon, creating the tubes by wrapping carbon sheets around a sort of balloon and applying high pressure.
We then assembled the frame by hand, joining the triangles via aluminium lugs.
Carbon was rarely used in any sector in the 1980s, and almost never in France, so we worked with a Belgian engineer who specialised in carbon. He worked on this project for two years. We also used Kevlar to increase comfort.
