Lauf Carbonara Fat Bike Suspension Fork
Discover the new Carbonara suspension fork from Lauf. The perfect choice for fat bikes, this fork adds 60mm of travel to just give the edge off hard trail chatter and complements our big tires. Add to this that the Lauf is completely maintenance free and works equally well in all weather conditions. Plus did we also mention it only weighs 1100 grams? Not completely convinced? Come test ride a Lauf at our shop trails and you will find out just how these are the perfect suspension choice for most fat tire riding.

The springs on the Lauf Carbonara 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.
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 out while staying sensitive to small bumps.
The design of the Lauf Carbonara is based around eliminating all “moving parts”, and therefore, friction and maintenance. 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!

Below is a brief video from Bike Radar on the TR29″ fork but same applies for the Fat Bike Carbonara and the 60mm travel works ideally with a fat tire.
