In Norse mythology, Laufey is the mysterious mother of Loki, one of the most infamous tricksters of all time. Laufey is also the origin of our most clever and versatile bike – Laufey has created a new style of riding. And instead of saying Laufey is tailored for one type of rider, we’re going to go ahead and claim this fun-loving machine is perfect for everyone.Trail Geometry – The 2019 Laufey is more aggressive, thanks to its 130mm fork and tougher tires. Our height and length measurements are both rational and proportional, to ensure that all cyclists can enjoy the impeccable handling of a lean, fun, fast bike, regardless of frame and wheel size.Hydroformed – We manipulate the shapes and wall thickness of our aluminium tubing to increase strength and resistance to unwanted flex. 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. Using aluminium technologies as advanced as our carbon manufacturing ensures our aluminium bikes are never second-best.Boost – 430mm chain stays make Laufey quick, stiff and responsive. Increasing rear axle spacing to 148mm over the 142mm standard moves the chainline outboard by 3mm, increasing the space available at the bottom bracket.Digit – It's not a dropper post – it's a quick adjust post. The patented Orbea Digit Post makes it significantly quicker and easier to stop and adjust saddle height during a ride.
