Laufey is our most clever and versatile bike. Instead of saying that 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. Laufey may 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 and expert shredders. Ride it in lycra, shred it in jeans. Laufey is a jack-of-all-trades and master of fun with 29-inch wheels and a 140mm fork.
For long, fast rides over varied terrain with the greatest versatility, 29-inch is the clear choice, and wide, 2.6-inch tires offer a bigger contact patch, which means more grip. More knobs are digging into the ground at any one time, increasing cornering and braking traction. To allow maximum tire clearance and offer great rigidity we created a proprietary chainstay yoke that is forged, then CNC-finished to exact specs. It’s not a new technology, but it’s costly and we felt that a great solution was right for Laufey.
Laufey is designed to see a lot of action, so we use aluminum technologies as advanced as our carbon manufacturing to ensure this and all our aluminum bikes are never second-best. We manipulate the shapes and wall-thickness of Laufey's aluminum tubing to increase strength and resistance to unwanted flex, and many of the tubes are butted to save weight in the middle of the tubes, away from the stress of the joints and the weld zones. While keeping the frame light, we added durability required for a bike that will be ridden hard — butted and hydroformed tubing ensure you have the burliness you need exactly where you need it.
