Lauf Trail Racer Fork
With 60mm / 2.35” of travel with progressive spring rate and its sub 990g / 2.18lbs weight, the patent pending Lauf Trail Racer fork is a unique match with today’s lightweight XC mountain bike frames.
The design of the Lauf Trail Racer fork is based around eliminating all “moving parts”, and therefore, friction and maintenance. You can ride without worries through sand, salt, desserts and ice – the performance will stay the same.
The monocoque carbon fibre 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 Trail Racer forks are made of military spec S2 glassfibre 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.
Progressive Spring Rate
The Lauf Trail Racer fork 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.
Plus Tyre Compatibility
The TR Boost can take full on 27.5+ tyres as well as 29+ tyres up to 2.8” wide. Some 29×3” tyres will also fit but as tyres are different from brand to brand you need to measure the tyre beforehand.
We do not have cargo mounts on our forks but there are 3rd party solutions that can be used. For instance the Twofish Unlimited Quick Cage adapters that can be used with a broad variety of cages.
