The Lauf, or "Leaves", suspension fork comes to us from the country of Iceland. This Grit version is designed to replace and your gravel or CX frames rigid fork. With no "moving" parts, the Lauf Grit Suspension fork is a ZERO maintenance, highly efficient 30mm travel suspension fork. It makes an excellent option for those who enjoy the simplicity of a rigid fork but would like some additional comfort, traction and capabilities out of their current set up. Drop the bone-shaking beat-down portion of your ride.
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 bumps. The 30mm of travel is progressive, meaning it will be sensitive in the beginning of its travel and stiff towards the end.
* For maintained steering characteristics from a 45/395mm rake/A2C rigid fork.
