Shock absorber

Why buying an accessory shock absorber?

The original suspension is made for "normal" use on roads. If you are doing something besides the normal use or the bike needs to carry more weight than it was planned to then it can happen that the original suspension is not able to handle this. That could be very heavy luggage for a tour, track days or racing. Even if the suspension doesn´t feel the way you would like to have it or you are simply looking for a higher-end alternative.
Therefore you have a wide range of shock absorber options.
Starting with a single tube shock with 36mm piston up to a TTX44 MX & Enduro shock absorber with twin tube technology and 44mm piston.
Qualities that all shocks from Öhlins share: sensitive response & modern design!
Already in the late seventies the first ÖHLINS twin shocks developed and tested by Kenth Öhlin were released to the market. From that point it has been continuous development.
Originally operating only in off-road sports with much success, then soon came the range for sports bikes. This then led to the successful introduction of forks.

Types of shock absorbers

S= single tube shock absorber
T= twin tube shock absorber

25, 30, 36, 39, 44, 46 & 50 = piston diameter in mm

Adjustment Features

C1= Adjustable compression damping
C2= High- and low speed compression damping
C4= Electronically controlled (EC) compression damping adjuster
R1= Adjustable rebound damping
R4= Electronically controlled (EC) rebound damping adjuster
