Description of Lauf Trail Racer 27.5" Fork - Light - 60mm - Tapered - 15x100mm - Naked Glossy

The spring rate of the fork's Light version is ideal for riders with a body weight under 70 kg.

Lauf 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 slow response of conventional suspension forks make them unable to keep up with the Lauf Trail Racer.

The 27,5" (650B) Lauf Trail Racer is designed for XC hardtails with a 15 mm thru axle and tapered head tube. The fork length measures 466 mm, which makes it fit perfectly to hardtail frames designed for 80 to 100 mm suspension. The rake is 45 mm for the perfect balance of agile handling and great stability.

The Lauf Spring System (LSS) is a patent pending technology, including Integrated Pocket Layup for maximal bonding strength and connection rigidity between the fork leaves and structure. The LSS allows to keep the unsprung parts as light as a leaf, at only 260 grams.

The design of the Lauf Trail Racer is based on a Zero Maintenance philosophy around eliminating all moving parts, and therefore, friction or any need for service. Lauf's own tests show that the monocoque carbon fiber structure delivers incredible strength without showing any signs of wear and tear.

The leaves of the Lauf Spring System (LSS) are made of military-spec high-performance S2 glass fibers, which are shockingly flexible and very impact resistant. The same material has been used for armour tanks - the springs of a Lauf fork are practically unbreakable.

To keep the suspension from feeling bouncy Lauf set the spring rate of its forks fairly high. Therefore only 60 mm of travel are needed. So in most cases you won’t even notice that it’s moving at all. You’ll just notice how the surface suddenly feels a whole lot smoother.

The Trail Racer features a progressive spring rate what means that the further the fork compresses the springs become stiffer. This helps keeping the fork from bottoming out while staying sensitive to small high-frequency bumps. That the 60 mm travel of the Lauf fork are not troubled with static friction supports this, too. The absence of friction also results in a high energy efficiency - a Lauf fork will not waste your hard earned joules.

Rider weight limit: max. 110 kg (243 lbs)
