Look Aergo – First Look

Just over a week ago Look launched a new set of aerobars – and we missed it. We had our chance to show you something really special. And we completely overshot the dismount line. But here we are 10 days later, and we finally get to take the deep dive the Aergo deserves.  Meet the Look Aergo – a completely new aerobar from Look that we think is one of the most interesting aerobars on the market today.

The Look Aergo

The first aspect you notice of the Aergo are the oversized arm rests. These have quickly becoming the norm for aerobars over the past year. As a rider you get a more supportive and stable perch that also can have benefits for the overall aerodynamics of the bar. Most recently we saw this idea on Victor Campenaert’s hour record winning machine. Look takes the custom nature of Campenaert and brings it down to a more mainstream application.

In addition to being oversized, the arm rests have a minimum center to center width of 91.5mm to a maximum of 205mm. They also can be tilted from 0-20° vertically and 0-7° laterally.

The Aergo features 54mm of arm rest reach adjustment. And 55mm of armrest stack adjustment.

What really caught our eye is the adjustability of the extension angle. For those that want something between a ski-tip and a s-bend but can never find the perfect angle. The Aergo may have you covered.  Featuring 75° of adjustability. Almost any athlete will be able to find their perfect angle.

The Aergo is available in 3 options – a Look 796 upgrade, road 31.8, and track. The 796 upgrade kit €799 [£779/$990] is specifically designed to replace the bar on the existing Look 796 providing it’s owners with an even more versatile cockpit option.

The road Aergo (€1,099 [£1,069/$1,290]) is meant for standard 31.8mm applications and features a 400mm Aeroflat base bar. The Road 31.8 Aeroflat features full dual cable routing compatibility as well as a carbon structure that builds in additional comfort for asphalt roads. It ships with a UCI legal arm rest bridge but for €149 [£145/$199] there is a carbon triathlon-specific bridge, which features integrated bottle cage and head unit mounts, and is Garmin, Wahoo and Polar-compatible.

The similarly priced track Aergo prioritizes maximum stiffness and removes routing compatibility.

Our Thoughts

The Aergo, at least at First Look, appears to be something special that hits all the marks (Highly adjustable – check. Aerodynamics beyond just the base bar – check. Hydration and computer integration – checkmate) and then ups them. Only time and a thorough review will tell us if that first look is accurate though. Being adjustable is good but being adjustable without having to take the whole bike apart is even better. As always thanks for reading AeroGeeks.com and stay tuned for more news and reviews!
