Ohlins introduce their latest motocross and enduro front fork, the RXF 48 S. With this 2018 fork, we have continued our successful development path from previous model improvements. Our keywords have been ‘stability, defined and settled without harshness’. For 2018, we have made updates both internally in the damping system, as well as externally in the lower fork legs.
The majority of track performance developments come from internal changes in the cartridge kit, which will also be utilised within our cartridge kits used for OE fork legs. We set a development aim for 2018 which we were able to reach by redesigning crucial internal valve parts as well as modifying our shim stack layout. With these changes combined, we’re happy to offer the rider a fork which is improved in stability, rigidity, defined position, front wheel feedback, settled movement and the ability to handle bigger impacts. Of course with our trademark traction and no harshness characteristics untouched.
Our 2018 fork will feature golden TiNitride surface treatments on the lower fork legs for improved durability, scratch resistance and low friction in high load situations.
There’s always been a 46 mm off road shock absorber in the Ohlins line- up but for 2013 it’s been updated with new valve technology and some retuning by Ohlins R&D. The result is the newborn Ohlins STX 46.
Compared to previous 46 mm models the STX is updated in many areas resulting in a developed dynamics of the shock absorber the rider will be able to feel and giving the rider a better function in every way possible.
The two way compression adjuster is new and similar to the Ohlins TTX shocks for the larger bikes. 40 clicks low speed adjustment and 3 clicks high speed compression adjustment leaves nothing more to wish and creates a great performance. The PDS – Progressive Damping System – function has also been updated to better control the forces the shock absorber is subject to. Rebound damping adjustment is also available as well as spring pre-load adjustment. A wide range of springs is as always available to chose from.
Ohlins are proud to offer a new family of shocks for the 50 & 65 cc MX-bikes – The Ohlins TTX30.
This is the rst time Ohlins brings out the successful TTX-technology for the small bikes. Thanks to the small diameter the TTX-technology can be brought in a small package to t these bikes. Having good suspension, as good as the
GP-racers, is vital when you start out and start honing your race craft and speed. A comfortable performance driven shock absorber means the rider can use less energy to go fast, giving better control, higher safety and of course in the end more energy towards the end of the race to ght for the victories.
As on all Ohlins products the TTX30 is serviceable so you can keep the performance of the shock absorber over a long period of time and last the life time of the bike if not longer.
With our 2018 TTX Flow we’ve continued to refine the great 2017 product. The TTX Flow gives the bike improved traction, comfort and predictability which enhances bike stability. For 2018 we’re adding in another step of improved bottoming control by an updated bump rubber layout as well as a new PDS design on our shocks for link-less bikes for a smoother transition and gentler bottoming feeling.
The TTX44 is built especially for championship riders, but serious privateers can of course lay their hands on this masterpiece from the R&D department at Ohlins, through the Ohlins distributor network. The performance has been proved at the highest level of AMA, MX GP and WEC.
Motocross and Enduro are the ultimate tests for the R&D department with the roughest and toughest conditions possible. It’s close to the heart of Ohlins and it’s where it all started, that is why Ohlins is serious about it. TTX MkII was introduced in 2012 and got updates with new designs to main piston and piston band. Flow pattern in this TTX 44 shock have proved to be very good where the oil flows through two pieces of Ohlins Gold valves sitting at the compression adjusters at the top of the shock. The shock was fine tuned for 2015 with a new rebound adjuster design for better precision and more rigid feeling.
This version also includes the all-in-one suspension tool, Ohlins Cool Tool.
The same technology we equip our Ohlins Front Forks with is available as cartridge kits to be fitted in your bike’s standard front forks. We set a development aim for 2018 which we reached by redesigning crucial internal valve parts as well as modifying our shim stack’s layouts. With these changes combined, we’re happy to offer the rider a fork we experience improved in stability, rigidity, defined position, defined front wheel feedback, settled movement and ability to handle bigger impacts. Of course with our trade marks traction and no harshness untouched.
