“Avant garde design for the performance rider”


Look’s current flock of carbon framed off-roaders are attracting attention for their avant-garde design touches and clever use of frame geometry. The Look 927 is a carbon framed off roader with 120 mm of travel front and back. Made from Look’s own 927 carbon, it is designed for competition enduros, and the occasional marathon. The frame is swoopy, and the integrated A-Stem gives the stem a blended in look with the seat tube, then drops to the conventional looking seat tube. The swing arm is carbon fiber, and asymmetrical, putting extra material where stiffness is required.

Look spent a lot of thought over the rear suspension. The main pivot provides the optimum balance between absorption and traction. There are no rear pivots in the stays. Absorption is done by Look’s clever manipulation of the swingarm’s carbon layup, allowing them to flex. This allows the stays to stay rigid around the pivot point, while eliminating a maintenance item.

A Rockshox SID WC RCT3 120 mm fork supports the front end. The A-Stem is claimed to be stiffer and more precise than a conventional steerer. Shimano’s XT and XTR do the shifting mated to an FSA SL-K double crank. The brakes are Magura, with Magura MT8 Next levers and Magura Storm SL calipers. An American Classic wheelset is mated with a pair of Continental X-Kings in 2.2 width. These are good all round tyres but a bike like the Look 927 needs careful suspension tuning and tyres for performance.

This isn’t a poser’s Sunday bike, by any means, but is meant for the serious enduro rider who wants performance and is willing to pay for it. If performance and stiffness is required, and unconventional looks don’t scare you, take a look at the Look 927.
