Lauf has taken its successful True Grit formula and added comfort, but not at the expense of speed
Long, low, fast geometry
Grit fork smooths chatter effectively
Improved rear-end compliance
Wide tyre clearance
Limited dropper post options
Wider BB makes swapping cranks trickier
Fork chassis can twist in certain situations
SRAM AXS paddles are deep

It's a gravel race bike from the future.
Wonderful at holding speed, whopping tyre clearance, all in on 700c, maintenance-free Grit 3 fork, playful handling that still means business, incredible value for money, a power meter.
Uses a new/unique crank spindle length, 1x only, slack seat tube angle, less smooth ride in the back end, plastic packaging, polarising aesthetics, toe overlap woes if using the full tyre capacity.
The Lauf Seigla is a modern-day gravel racer that achieves huge tyre clearances without sacrificing its geometry or performance. The leaf-sprung fork is a tidy, albeit odd-looking solution to gravel bike suspension and completes a bike that’s comfortable, controlled and fun to ride. The decent spec list (although tested with wheels borrowed from a higher model) makes it a hard bike to beat both in terms of value for money and when putting the hammer down on dirt tracks.

The solitary member of the 'Sub-4 Club' said he was happy to have fat tires for the rough course at Wild Horse Gravel.

The Lauf True Grit gravel bike and its SRAM XPLR groupset enter our concept comparison of mountain bikes and gravel bikes. How wide is the Lauf’s range of applications really and can the latest bike tech help to create a coherent overall package? Here’s our test.
Widest range of applications in the test
Comfort, traction and control sensibly combined
High feeling of safety
Sluggish when setting off
Small range of cassette unnecessarily restricts the range of applications
Frame has too little tire clearance

This is an initial score and could change as I spend more time on the bike
Race-bred gravel bike that avoids being overly harsh or nervous
Friction-free fork smooths fine chatter impeccably
Rear-tyre clearance could be improved
Fork’s chassis can get caught out in high-load corners
