Lauf True Grit Weekend Warrior

Lauf True Grit Weekend Warrior
Please select options


The True Grit is a versatile gravel and endurance race horse, with nerves of carbon. Blast through gravel, sweep the singletracks, float on asphalt or open a beer. Fitted with the Lauf Grit SL gravel suspension fork and beefy gravel tires – just ride!

By using advanced molding technologies, bonded junctions are avoided and internal surfaces are kept smooth. Resulting in longer continuous carbon fibers and less unwanted material overlap. Creating a light, yet strong frame. The bottom bracket is a threaded BSA. Yes, it’s more expensive to make than press-fit bottom brackets and it may add a few grams. However, its durability and ease of maintenance make it worth it. At the rear the True Grit boasts a 142x12mm through axle and a flat-mount for disc-brakes. The headtube is tapered (1.125” to 1.5”). There are 3x bottle cage mounts, and a mount on the top tube for a bento box. What does the frame weigh? 1120g for a size M frame in Midnight Blue, including front and rear derailleur hangers.

The long toptube paired with a short-ish stem, low headtube and a slack head angle give you a low and aerodynamic position with great stability at high speeds and in rough terrain. Making you Long 4 Speed.

The True Grit can take up to 45mm 700c tires* - with ample room for the elements. That’s a whole lot of rubber when things get dirty. We call it the right amount of clearance, and we managed to achieve it with our preferred 425mm chainstay length, without intruding on the space for the crankset.

At the core of True Grit is the Lauf Grit SL, with its 30mm of front suspension - the thing that changed how gravel riding is perceived, now taken to the next level. It’s more compact, lighter and stiffer (laterally and fore/aft) than the standard version. Grit SL has superb small bump performance and maintains traction and control like no other. Making the ride more comfortable, with zero maintenance.
