The iconic ‘Look 1985’ jersey and bib shorts were designed by Look, manufactured by the team’s clothing partner, Marcello Bergamo, in a limited edition of fifty.
1985 was a landmark year for Look as it was not only the first time that a World Tour team – La Vie Claire, created by Bernard Tapie – raced in Look colours; it was the year Look released their innovative clipless pedals, an invention that would revolutionize cycling for all of us.

Riding these two new pedals and wearing Look’s Mondrian colors, Bernard Hinault won the 1985 Tour de France and Giro d’Italia, while Greg LeMond took second place in the Tour in his first appearance for the team.
Team Delko will also be racing Look’s 785 Huez RS Pro Team Disc bike with Look Keo Blade Carbon Ceramic pedals.

“The frame’s high and ultra-high modulus carbon layups provide all the stiffness needed to tackle the 260 km between Compiègne and Roubaix at high speed, while the climbing-oriented geometry, including a longer head tube, provides extra comfort and flexibility on rough roads,” says Look.
The Look 785 Huez RS is spec’d with a Sram Red eTap AXS groupset, Corima wheels wrapped in Schwalbe tires and a Selle Italia saddle.
