Charlie says... These are amazing, and what you will find on my titanium Salsa Warbird. They weight almost no more than a rigid fork @ 900g, but give you a super smooth ride. The short 30mm travel is plenty, the fork does not dive and get out of shape. However the best thing is you can chase down mountainbikers on a skinny tyre'd drop bar bike.
The Lauf Grit is the perfect addition to any gravel bike - or to “gravel-up” any CX bike. It makes the bike more capable and more comfortable. While remaining light and lightning fast. Make your next adventure the most fun one yet! Featuring superb small bump sensitivity, zero maintenance and a 5 year warranty.

- Brake mounts: Grit uses Flatmounts that are adapted for 20mm larger discs than standard Flatmounts. In order to use a 160mm disc, you should use a brake setup intended for 140mm discs (as we believe 140mm is too small for gravel/CX we pushed things up to 160mm minimum). If you have flatmount brakes you simply flip your (standard/included) brake adapter to the 140mm setting to work with 160mm discs. If you have postmount brakes you buy the 140mm version of the Flatmount to Postmount adapter in order to use 160mm discs.
- Min. rotor: 160mm.
- Max rider weight: 110kg (243lbs)
