Look have launched a new version of their flagship road bike, dubbed the 695 Aerolight. The launch took place in Corsica, where the 2013 Tour de France will start on Saturday, and Look did it in spectacular style, flying the bike in via helicopter to the waiting media contingent.

The 695 Aerolight is an aero version of the 695 that Look brought to market three years ago. It features integrated front and rear brakes, internal cabling, an aero stem and an internal compartment for Shimano Di2 batteries.

Look say the bike tips the scales under the UCI 6.8kg weight limit, so presumably the four Cofidis riders who'll be on these machines during the Tour de France will be adding some ballast to their machines.

We'll have full details of the 695 Aerolight soon on Cyclingnews.
