Look X-Track Race Carbon Titanium Pedal
Every second is precious in a race, and you can't afford to lose even a fraction of one. The X-TRACK RACE CARBON Ti pedals is specifically created for the most unforgiving courses. The geometry of the mechanism is designed for easy engagement in all conditions, evacuating any elements which may get in the way such as mud or sand. The titanium body offers a 515 mm² contact area, while the titanium axle ensures the pedal is stiff and light: a mere 145 grams underfoot.

Why X Track
A clipless MTB pedal must respond to a multitude of different situations. External conditions may vary considerably and interfere with pedal operation. It is not enough to make a product that is excellent in one specific area. Instead, it is necessary to design it to be as versatile as possible to provide its user with a real advantage regardless of any external obstacles encountered. Following this logic, LOOK has chosen to concentrate on the interaction of three major factors, contact surface, weight and entry/release, to develop the perfect pedal.
The Best Power to weight ratio :
All the energy you produce is transferred to your MTB through your pedals. Their role, is therefore, crucial. LOOK’s objective in this new undertaking was to find solutions that would enable the most efficient transfer of rider power possible. That is why LOOK has chosen to place the weight/contact surface ratio as the primary factor when defining the product.
Generally speaking, the greater the contact surface, the more efficiently energy is transferred. On the other hand, the greater the contact surface, the more the pedal will weigh. The challenge faced by our engineers was therefore, to identify the zones that are useful for energy transmission and then optimize the pedal design in order to limit any that are unused. This task allowed LOOK to engineer a pedal with the best weight / contact surface ratio on the market.
Optimal Contact Surface :
Lateral contact support guides your foot in finding your pedal and provides you a point of contact even if you have not yet engaged the cleat. This wide contact area prevents your foot from sliding on the pedal body and offers consistent and reassuring support.
Mechanism Geometry :
The mechanism works regardless of external conditions (in the mud, forces are significantly different from those encountered when dry), more space allows for the shedding of various foreign matter (mud, sand...). These zones give the user a constant and stable feeling of being securely clipped in, in all conditions.
Adjustable Tension :
An adjustable tension screw allows you to fine-tune the entry / release resistance to your personal skill level.
