Description

Öhlins started as a company making shocks for MX back in the 70s and has since then always worked to push the ­boundaries of performance. Fork cartridge kits has during the last years become an important part of the Öhlins MX portfolio and next step is now to start introduce that concept into DH racing.

The STX22 cartridge kit is based on what is available for MX and share a lot of features. It is the result of using ­experience gained from working at the top level racing around the world and offers a new level of performance not seen in DH forks before. Focus on what makes a rider to go as fast as ­possible, control, confidence and balance makes this kit to stand out from other damping systems. The damping ­response makes it possible to use higher level of damping without the harshness which otherwise is a common result and thus improving bike control and front end grip which better ­balance the bike when using the Öhlins TTX 22 rear shock. That control coupled with the low pressure system makes it the most powerful cartridge kit available on the market.

The STX22 kit has been designed to rise very low above the fork leg ends, thus allowing the forks to be mounted far up in the triple clamps with a small clearance to the handlebars. This allows for lower bikes for the smaller riders in the class. ­Compression adjuster is easily reachable as it is angled out from underneath the handlebar.
