Tired of a rigid ride, but don’t want to deal with the weight and complexities of a suspension fork? With no "moving" parts, the Lauf Grit SL fork is a ZERO maintenance, highly efficient 30mm travel suspension fork. It makes an excellent option for those who are looking for the lightweight feel and simplicity of a rigid fork without a bone-shaking beat-down every time they ride.
The Lauf, or "Leaves", fork comes to us from the country of Iceland and is designed for gravel and cylcocross frames with 700c or 27.5” wheels and a tapered steer-tube. The Lauf is available for hubs using 12mm or 15mm thru-axles.
So how does it work? It uses a leaf spring system much like you may have in your automobile. Basically, there are six small leaf springs made of high-performance S2 glass fibers on each side of the fork which, when under load, flex and absorb trail bumps. The 30mm of travel is progressive, meaning it will be sensitive in the beginning of its travel and stiff towards the end. Overall, the fork is simplistic, consistent, and resilient.
Zero Maintenance: The fork has zero moving parts, lab tested with over 1 million compressions with no signs of wear and tear.
S2 Springs: Constructed of military spec S2 glass-fiber tested through over 1.5 million compressions.
Progressive Spring Rate: The further the fork compresses, the stiffer the spring becomes.
Small Bump Performance: Zero stiction compared to a suspension fork leads to incredible small bump sensitivity.
All Weather: Rain or shine, hot or cold.
Manufacturer Warranty: 5-year warranty provided by Lauf Forks.
