"With plenty of testing ground covered and many hours testing in some of the most adverse weather and terrain, it was clear that Lauf has hit the nail square on the head with the Grit. Not only did it handle all of the small bumps and holes with the perfect amount of damping, but also absorbed the large ruts and rocks when we were descending at high speeds with minimal visibility. The fork is light and still allows the bike to climb well. If you’re a stand-up-and-mash kind of rider, you may get a small amount of bobbing, but with the much-stiffer springs and shorter travel, it isn’t much. In our eyes, the Grit could be a good addition to your gravel bike and will defi nitely open the door to even more adventurous routes."
