This Limited Warranty does not apply to normal wear and tear* of the Product, to parts which have been restored or subjected to inappropriate repairs or modifications, or to any damage caused by accident, improper or abusive use or lack of due care and maintenance.
Inappropriate uses of Product which render the warranty void include spinning (indoor cycling), jumping, acrobatics, extreme cycling and similar activities. Intensive use of a bicycle on an indoor trainer may result in the damage of the rear triangle due to its fixed position.

Under no circumstances can LOOK and its agents or distributors be held liable for any direct or consequential damage, nor for the cost of transport or shipment of the Product, regardless of whether the claim arises from the contract, warranty, negligence or product liability, including but not limited to loss of use, loss or damage of any goods or property other than the Product itself, or any other financial loss.
Regardless of the cause of warranty claim, neither LOOK nor its agent or distributors can be held responsible for the provision of any financial contribution or compensation for a Product. The rights granted by the Limited Warranty and the proceeds can in no way be assigned or transmitted to third parties.
LOOK’s obligations under any warranty are limited, in the broadest possible sense of the law, to those expressly specified in this LOOK Limited Warranty.

*Parts considered subject to normal wear and tear:
