The Lauf Grit SL is the state of the art gravel suspension fork. It significantly improves handling and makes the ride more comfortable with out of this world small bump performance. All this in a lightweight package, requiring zero-maintenance – with 5 year warranty. With the Grit SL you’ll want to hop on an adventure more than ever.
The design of the Lauf Grit SL is based around eliminating all “moving parts”, and therefore, friction and maintenance. The monocoque carbon fibre structure delivers incredible strength, and the test-fork we have in our lab has already been “shocked” over 1 million times, without showing any signs of wear and tear. That equals more grinding than you’ll manage to cram into at least 5 years of action!
The springs on the Lauf Grit SL are made of military spec S2 glassfibre that is extremely tough on hits and flexible in the direction of the travel. The springs have been “shocked” in our test lab over 1.500.000 times reaching 22mm amplitude every time.
Progressive Spring Rate
The Lauf Grit SL has 30mm of travel with progressive spring rate. This means that the further the fork compresses the springs become stiffer. This helps keeping the fork from bottoming without sacrificing small bump compliance.
Small Bump Performance
The Lauf Grit SL forks are designed to maintain the lightness and reliability of rigid forks, while offering absorption and traction in small bumps that conventional suspension forks can’t match. The stiction and high unsprung weight of conventional suspension forks make them unable to keep up with high-speed input as brilliantly as the Lauf Grit SL.
The Grit SL works flawlessly in all weather conditions. Whether you find yourself in the freezing Antarctica or the scorching Sahara - it also loves salt and sand. Grab your rig and just ride!
