When making the 596, Look considered 3 main things: stiffness for efficiency, comfort for fatigue reduction, and aerodynamics for speed. It features a very specific layup in the carbon and a unique 3-monobloc frame design with an integrated seatmast that's rigid for power transfer and compliant for comfort on the road. And, for exceptional aerodynamics every tube is positioned to optimize the air flow of both the rider and the bike in motion. The front end acts like a fairing, channeling air away from you. Notice the gap between the seat tube and the wheel, a break from the norm. Look's wind tunnel testing shows that a gap leads to better air flow while the wheel is spinning. And with Look's aggressive geometry, those one-hundredths of a second are yours for the taking.
