We head to Iceland to ride the all-new Lauf Seigla, an aggressive reinterpretation of what a race gravel bike can be.

With massive 700×57 (29×2.25″) tire clearance, more rear compliance, and a stiffer leaf spring suspension fork, it’s a monster that’s also quite fast.

In this interview, we talk with founder and president Benedikt Skulason about the new design, how to hack it to use a dropper seatpost, and the tricks they used to give it so much room for big tires without changing the geometry from the original True Grit frame!

Check out our full launch coverage of the new Lauf Seigla gravel bike for all the tech details and photos.
