INTRODUCING THE NEW LAUFEY
The Master of Fun
New Laufey is our most clever and versatile bike. Instead of saying that new Laufey is tailored for one type of rider, we’re going to go ahead and claim this fun-loving machine is perfect for everyone. Laufey is omnipotent: it’s a slack, simple trail bike that relishes new terrain.
It’s made to be someone’s first bike or their latest bike. It’s inexpensive and attainable, and it’s a niche bike that feels at home in even the most exclusive bike collection. It’s for first timers. Expert shredders. Ride it in lycra, shred it in jeans. Laufey is a jack-of-all-trades and master of fun with 29” wheels and 140mm
THE LAUFEY PHILOSOPHY
Why should hardtail mountain bikes share twitchy geometry with world cup race frames? Laufey takes a long look at a few key things that make riding fun – geometry that is slacker and lower, shorter stems and wider bars, beefy 2.6” tires and a long travel fork.
Of course we didn’t invent the versatile hardtail category but with models starting at €1299, we are hoping that Laufey will change even the way first-time riders experience the trail. Does this mean Laufey is an entry-level bike? Hardly. The hydroformed alloy frame shares tubing and features with our Occam full suspension models.
Smart features make Laufey a jack-of-all-trades. ISCG 05 tabs are chainguide-ready for folks who don’t like keeping the wheels on the ground. Boost 148 means short chainstays and strong rear wheels that won’t quit after a few months of hard use. And of course every Laufey comes with a dropper post… are rigid seatposts on trail bikes even a thing anymore?
NEW FRAME & GEOMETRY
The new alloy frame of Laufey is hydroformed into a great combination of stiffness & strength that improves fun and performance. Like Occam, the new Laufey is updated with our “pure trail” geometry adapted specifically to the hardtail platform.
Reaches are approximately 25mm longer, head angle is slacker (65.5º), the seat angle is steeper (75º) and chainstays are 5mm longer. In just two words: versatility and fun.
