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.View Specs
The Lauf Grit SL is packed with features that make a world of difference on gravel. Become smoother, faster and get more traction - all in a super lightweight package.
700c and 27.5"
We recommend 700c for less rolling resistance.
700x45mm or 27.5x2.1"
The Grit SL forks can take up a whole lot of rubber, which can save your day when things get dirty.
30mm / 1.18"
This is the sweet spot for our forks. Since the travel is fairly short and progressive, we don’t need damping. That makes the fork a lot simpler and maintenance free.
850 g / 1.87 lbs
The Grit SL is super light and the perfect addition to gravel bikes - or to "gravel-up" cyclocross bikes. Weight measured with 210mm steerer and Lauf axle.
The low unsprung weight is one of the design elements that makes this fork extremely good at tracking small bumps and chatter which gives you great traction and isolates you from vibration.
12mm or 15mm thru-axle
All forks are supplied with our own Lauf axle. A lightweight low profile axle, which requires a 6mm allen key. If you prefer a lever, you can replace the 15mm Grit SL with e.g. the RockShox Maxle.
The rake on the Grit SL is made to fit the slightly longer axle to crown then on on most gravel forks, while maintaining steering characteristics of 45mm rake rigid fork.
411mm (including 6mm sag)
The axle to crown on the Grit SL is slightly longer then on most rigid gravel forks, which is necessary to incorporate the 30mm travel. Combined with the 47mm rake the Grit maintains the steering characteristics of a rigid fork with 45mm rake and 395mm axle to crown.
Tapered 1 1/8" - 1 1/2"
The Grit SL has an integrated crown race with 45° angle. It comes with a bearing that fits most headsets (45° upper and lower) but please check if the bearing fits your current headset. Uncut steerer is 300mm.
The Grit SL is made for flat mount brakes. Spacers can be used to fit a 180mm rotor. If you'd like to use post mount brakes you should use this adapter for 160mm rotor: SM-MA-F140PDA.
