THE LAUF FORK – A DIFFERENT TAKE ON SUSPENSION
So are all you Hardtail riders with 29 or 27.5 bikes looking for something different than the standard 80-100 mm fork for your ride, a fork that’s lighter than your standard suspension fork, made of full composite, and still gives you some suspension, a fork that you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to dial in for every ride or race course, with zero maintenance.
Well look no further than a company called LAUF and their fork called the LAUF TRAIL RACER. They will give you what you need, short of assuring you a World Cup title. This you have to work for on your own.
What makes this fork unique when you look at them is what the suspension is made up of, they are made up of three leafs on each side of the fork to give you 60mm of progressive travel. This is the suspension for the fork.
The leaves are a mil spec high performance S2 glass fibers which are amazingly flexible and impact resistant.
The Lauf forks are made for 275 or 29 size tires, tapered head tube, and 15mm thru axle, and you have 9 color ways to match them to your bike making it super cool.
