Lauf True Grit SRAM XPLR Edition in review – the gravel hardtail compared with 5 other bike concepts

Benjamin Topf

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

  • Friction-free fork smooths fine chatter impeccably

  • Rear-tyre clearance could be improved

  • Fork’s chassis can get caught out in high-load corners
