  • LAUF Carbonara


    Zero Maintenance
    The design of the Lauf forks 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 fiber 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!

    S2 Springs
    The springs on the Lauf forks are made of military spec S2 glassfiber 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
    Spring Rate Regular (over 65kg riders)
    Light (under 70kg riders)

    The Lauf Carbonara 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 Tire Compatibility
    The Carbonara fits fatbike tires and plus size tires. Fat ones for floating on the snow or plus size for smashing the summer trails.

    All Weather
    The Carbonara works flawlessly in all weather conditions. Whether you find yourself in the freezing Antarctica or the scorching Sahara - it also loves salt and sand. No stiction, no worries. Grab your rig and just ride!

    Cargo Mounts
    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.

    "It really is a beast all its own, and worth anyone’s consideration that likes to take fatbikes to places that only fatbikes can go." - Review

    26” fat, 27.5” fat and 29+. The Carbonara likes fat tires (and bacon) and riding through winter. During summer it comes in handy to throw under 29+ wheels for a quick XC spin.

    Max tire width
    Go for fat and wide tires for flotation or “skinny” 29” for trail hunting. The Carbonara likes them all. 26x4.8”, 27.5x4.5” and 29x3.0”

    60mm / 2.35” travel. 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.

    The Carbonara is very light - especially when compared to other fatbike forks. Be prepared to make your fatbike com to life.

    Unsprung weight
    260g unsprung weight
    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.

    Rider weight limit
    120kg / 265lbs
    This should be your weight in a race gear.

    15mm Lauf thru axle
    We supply all forks with our own axles. We made a lightweight low profile axle which requires a 6mm allen key. If you prefer a lever, you can replace it with e.g. the RockShox Maxle

    Hub spacing
    Full fatbike spacing of 150mm. However if you have a 135mm or 142mm front hub there are spacer kits to reach the 150mm width. These are provided by the hub manufacturer. You might need to re-dish your wheel.

    51mm. Rake is the distance measured from center of the steerer tube to the center of the axle - measured perpendicular to the steerer.

    Axle to crown
    495mm. It’s designed to replace a 100mm XC fork. When you take sag into account on a normal telescopic fork, the axle to crown length is roughly the same.

    Steerer Tapered
    1 1/8” - 1 1/2” (uncut length 250mm)
    It’s also possible to fit our forks on bikes that have an oversized headtube (44mm). Then the lower bearing needs to be changed to a 1.5”.

    Min rotor size
    180mm is minimum but if you prefer a larger rotor a spacer can be used.
