Of the few brands operating in the road bike pedal segment, Look is quite possibly the most established. After all, Look was first to successfully market the clipless pedal system back in the 1980s. In the four decades since, clipless pedals have come a long way and thanks to trickle-down technology, clipless pedals are available at a range of price points. 

The Look Keo Classic 3 Plus pedals are one such example and are positioned as the second most affordable road bike pedals in the Look range, offering a few improvements to the entry-level Classic 3.
