When it comes to limited edition releases, it doesn’t get much more exclusive than eight. That’s the total number of the new 765 Gravel RS Dirty Kanza Edition that LOOK is making. And to add to the exclusivity, this is a US-only release, sorry global readers!
At 200 miles long, the Dirty Kanza gravel race in Kansas offers a unique suite of challenges. To make a bike befitting this grueling day, LOOK took a 765 Gravel RS frame, which can hold up to four water bottles, and built it up with new SRAM Force eTap AXS wide gearing, with a 43/30T crankset and a 10-36T cassette—plenty of gears for grinding up endless hills under the sun. Corima G30.5 gravel wheels built up with Goodyear Connector tires should help mitigate the road vibration and hold up to the demands of flint rock roads. The build also features LOOK X-Track Race Carbon pedals which have about twice the surface area of other SPD pedals.
The bikes will retail for $8,000 and are available through any LOOK or Corima dealer, first come, first served. Two bikes will be available in either x-small or small, three in medium and three in either large or x-large.
Each bike purchase comes with a chance to race next year’s Dirty Kanza. All eight purhasers will be entered into a drawing after registering the bike with LOOK, and two will win. Winners will be chosen July 6.
