Race ready, lightweight frame and fork

The Luath has a racing pedigree and is designed to go fast. The key to the Luath’s speed is all down to its lightweight but stiff aluminium frame and the responsive tracking of the lightweight carbon-fibre fork.

Disk brakes

Reassuringly powerful braking

Being fast is all about good brakes. It sounds odd, but it’s true! To have confidence when riding you need to know you can scrub off speed and stop when you want to – even with smaller hands. The Luath features Tektro cable operated disc brakes, paired with short reach levers and Islabikes’ custom shape dropped handlebar for confidence inspiring braking.

A versatile performer

The Luath features discreet mounts for our custom luggage racks and mudguards, whilst generous frame clearances and disc brakes mean maximum mud clearance for CX tyres when the weather gets wet.

Exclusive Islabikes drop bars

Each Luath gets a custom scaled down handlebar featuring a narrow shape and shallow drop, meaning junior riders can comfortably reach all the bar’s riding positions.

Braking on dropped handlebars is notoriously awkward for people with smaller hands, often placing the levers uncomfortably far from reach. The shape of our Luath 26 bars cleverly position the brake lever closer to the rider’s hands. 

Simple gearing is better (and lighter!)

1 x drivetrains have proven themselves to be the way forward, keeping transmission simple and more importantly lightweight. The Luath 26 cranks are 150 mm in length and feature a super narrow 141.5mm Q-factor to optimise pedalling effort. We pair a 36t narrow wide chainring with a wide ratio 11-34t cassette to give you all the gears you need.
