Lauf is a high-end brand, specialising in fork products for gravel and mountain bikes. The groundbreaking concept behind Lauf was developed in the Icelandic city of Reykjavik. Based on his experience in the world of prosthetics and his passion for cycling, Gudberg Bjornsson came up with the idea of developing an MTB fork based on leaf-spring technology.

  • Lauf FORK CARBONARA - NAKED MATTE - LIGHT

    The Carbonara wants to play in the snow and have fun with the gang. Slam on almost any fat bike and dial up the fun factor. The design of the Lauf Carbonara is based around eliminating all "moving parts", and therefore, friction and maintenance. The monocoque carbon fiber structure delivers incredible strength, and the test-fork we have in our lab has already been "shocked" over 170 thousand times, without showing any signs of wear and tear. That equals more mountain-biking than you'll manage to cram into at least 5 years of action! The springs on the Lauf Carbonara are made of military spec S2 glassfiber that is extremely tough on hits and flexible in the direction of the travel. The springs have been "shocked" in our test lab over 400.000 times reaching 40mm amplitude every time. The Lauf Carbonara has 60mm 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. The Carbonara works flawlessly in all weather conditions. Whether you find yourself in the freezing Antarctica or the scorching Sahara - it also loves salt and sand. No stiction, no worries. Grab your rig and just ride!

  • Lauf FORK GRIT - 12MM - NAKED MATTE

    The Lauf Grit SL is the perfect addition to any gravel bike - or to "gravel-up" the CX bike. It makes the bike more capable and more comfortable. Make your next adventure the most fun one yet! The Lauf Grit SL is packed with features that make a world of difference on gravel. Become smoother, faster and enjoy the gravel miles to the fullest. The design of the Lauf Grit SL is based around eliminating all "moving parts", and therefore, friction and maintenance. The monocoque carbon fiber 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 super strong S2 glassfiber 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. The Grit SL is 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 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. 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!

  • Lauf FORK JAF - 15MM - NAKED MATTE

    The Lauf JAF is a super normally lightweight carbon rigid fork, with triple cage-mounts. In other words, just a fork. You can still go on crazy fun adventures on the JAF. Even pavement and gravel on the one and same adventure. Mix things up a bit, do something out of the box. The Lauf JAF is packed with features - even though it's just a fork. Plus, you'll be slicing the air like a cheese grader on semi-frozen butter. So, you can just hop on and just ride into the wild - like a normal person. Triple Cage Mounts The JAF has double triple cage mounts. That means there are three attachment points on each leg - yes there are two legs. The mounts are great when you go bike-packing. We recommend not loading the fork too much as it can affect handling - 1.000g on each side is what we recommend. Lauf Thru-Axle The JAF comes with the Lauf thru-axle, which is lightweight and strong - super strong. Like very very strong. You're welcome, enjoy! Integrated Crown Race We love integrating things. Therefore it just seemed natural to integrate the crown race. As if that isn't cool enough - integrated crown race makes the structure strong and secure. Brake Hose Mounts The JAF has two brake hose mounts, which is essential so your brake cable doesn't get tangled in the spokes. Just ride! Specs Wheel Size: 700c / 27.5" (The wheel sizes the JAF supports.) Max Tire Width: 45 mm (700c) / 2.1" (27.5") (The maximum width of tire with room for the elements.) Axle Size: 12x100 mm or 15x100 mm (The diameter of the thru-axle can be 12mm or 15mm for a hub width of 100mm. The actual axle length is 128mm.) Axle To Crown: 400 mm (The height of the fork measured from the centre of the axle to the centre of the crown race.) Rake: 45 mm Steerer Tube: Tapered 1 1/8" - 1 1"2" (The steerer also has an integrated crown race with an angle of 45°.) Min. Rotor Size: 160 mm (Max. rotor size is 180mm. Please use 20mm spacers to achieve the correct fit.) Weight Limit: 110 kg / 243 lbs (This is your own weight with gear.) Weight: 435 g (Weight is measured with 250 mm long steerer and axle in place.)

The innovative Lauf Brand was established in 2010 in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Lauf has been actively involved in numerous events across the world. In the United States in particular, Lauf features in lots of events. In 2020, there are more than 30 events scheduled across the United States, Scotland, Iceland and Belgium, in which Lauf is set to play a role. All of them are being held on the world’s most challenging gravel and mountain bike trails.

By being involved in and attending so many of these events, Lauf gains valuable feedback from passionate cyclists with real expertise. In its history so far, this has always formed the basis for new developments and improvements to the brand.

In Reykjavik in June 2013, the first-ever MTB competition was won on a bicycle equipped with a Lauf leaf-spring suspension fork. Since then, Lauf has helped secure various world trophies and UCI titles.
