A well proven monotube design, the Ohlins STX 46 shock absorber sets the standard for performance, quality and durability. A major suspension upgrade for your sports bike suspension, it features a large 46mm main piston and an internal gas reservoir within the main body of the shock. With adjustable damping, you can change the behavior of the shock to suit your taste. The Öhlins STX 46 gives the rider improved handling, stability and cornering which improves overall performance and rider confidence.
Based on the highly regarded TTX technology it has been developed from Öhlins’ vast experience in MotoGP. Compared with the standard TTX36 MkII, the compression and rebound adjustments have improved even further with a new adjustment needle, providing better guidance and a different flow restriction behavior. The function of the damper is more consistent with less variation and the adjusters work in a more precise manner. A new main piston completes the package, designed to improve traction and rider control. Did we mention that the weight is reduced even further? Among the advantages are a much improved chassis feedback as well as enhanced performance. Also, the adjustment range is even wider and with this new design, the variation in behavior from one shock absorber to another is further reduced – a proof of Öhlins commitment to precision. The TTX GP continues on the TTX36 path, sharing and improving on the benefits of one of the best shock absorbers in the world. TTX GP will be available for most major bikes used in national racing as well as the new street bike models.
The new racing inspired FKR cartridge kit has technology derived straight from the Moto3, Moto 2 and World Superbike championships developed by our engineers at Ohlins HQ in Sweden. The new FKR is the cartridge kit to have for riders who demands the best performance from their bike. Designed for high-end top level racing in SuperStock and SuperSport classes, the new FKR cartridge kit will give you loads of performance.
The FKR Cartridge kit features a spring pressurized system, compared to the old gas pressurized system, the spring pressure offers a more simplistic and user friendly design. That also accounts for easier maintenance and setting changes. But there are more advantages of a spring pressurized system. There is no risk of gas leakage, it also gives a more consistent performance curve and allows for a more compact design. The Ohlins engineers decided to completely transform the FKR to its predecessor. With the Ohlins TTX technology, a new designed piston and an 8mm piston shaft we reduce the pressure build-up and create a faster damping response. That gives a “linear” style of damping characteristics which create more tuning options and also Increases grip & bump absorption properties while improving chassis stability. The Ohlins engineers also decided to make the FKR less sensitive to shim changes making it easier to tune the cartridge kit to your specific liking and for different tracks if you are racing.
The Road & Track 30 mm front fork cartridge kit from Ohlins is based on experience gained from World Supersport and Superstock Championships. It doesn’t matter if you are heading for a National Roadracing title or if you are taking your bike to the local race track. The cartridge kit will give you loads of performance, stable damping characteristics and fantastic comfort.
The Kit has a unique design with compression damping and the adjustment on the left leg and rebound damping and the adjustment on the right leg – i.e. all adjustments are made at the top together with the spring preload.
