A suspension gravel fork designed in Iceland is being taken to market by 3T of Italy. The Lauf Grit fork designed by former prosthetics engineer Benedikt Skulason will be fitted to 3T’s Exploro Team aero gravel bike
The 850 Euro fork provides 30mm of suspension travel and locates the front thru-axle on a loating subframe suspended on progressive-rate "leaves." Unlike a conventional telescopic MTB suspension fork, it requires no maintenance, says 3T.
Brakes are flatmount for rotors of 160mm or larger (a postmount adapter is available). Thru-axle can be 12mm or 15mm. Weight is 900g including 210mm steerer and Lauf thru-axle. (Uncut steerer is 300mm; unsprung weight 250g.)
