Installing Polar LOOK Kéo Power

Polar LOOK Kéo Power includes Look Kéo Power pedals and the Polar P5 power transmitters.

To install LOOK Kéo pedals

You need

  • 18 mm wrench

  • 8 mm allen key

  • pedal installation tool (comes in product package).

LOOK pedals have standard 9/16 x 20 BSA threading. Make sure your cranks have the same threading before installing the pedals. The right pedal screws onto the crank clockwise and the left pedal (marked with a groove on the pedal bolt) screws onto the crank counterclockwise. Before installing the pedals, make sure the crank thread and face that are in contact with the pedal axle and bolt are clean to avoid any damage to the pedal axle during installation.

1. Use the allen key to screw the pedal onto the crank as far as it goes. Do not tighten it yet.

2. The crank in upward position, unscrew the pedal until the mark on the pedal axle points forward (picture 2). If the pedal axle sticks out of the crank, add an additional ring (included in package) between the crank and the pedal bolt.

3. Place the pedal installation tool into the pedal axle so that its shaft is in line with the crank (picture 3).
4. Stabilize the crank with the pedal installation tool while tightening the pedal bolt with a thin 18 mm wrench (picture 3). The recommended tightening torque is 30 Nm.

Kéo Power pedals are desinged to be compatible with cranks less than 16 mm thick (picture 4). If your cranks are thicker, you may not be able to attach the transmitters to the pedals.

To install Polar P5 transmitters

Once LOOK Kéo pedals are installed onto the bike, you can install the Polar P5 transmitters. The transmitters are marked R (right) and L (left).

1. Remove the protective cap from the transmitter.

2. Insert the transmitter into the pedal axle. Check that the shape of the transmitter corresponds with the shape inside the pedal axle. Push firmly but avoid excess strength so as not to damage to the transmitter.

Picture 5. Inserting the transmitter.

3. Check that the transmitter is positioned correctly (picture 6). If the transmitter is in an incorrect position, remove it and adjust the pedals so that the transmitter attaches correctly.

4. Pass the cable tie through the hole in the transmitter, and tighten it around the crank (Picture 7). Cut off excess cable tie ends.

5. Before cycling, rotate the cranks with the chain on the outer chainring and smallest sprocket, and check that the transmitters do not hit any part of the bike or chain (Picture 8).
