TTX22 M Universal Coil Shock 8,75x2,75" (222x70 mm)

Ever since the launch of the Öhlins TTX 22 M in 2013, the shock absorber has created a buzz within the bike industry. Riders have praised the shock from the time it was released. Until now, the TTX 22 M has only been available for Specialized OEM/AM bikes. But now, we are re-launching the shock as TTX 22 M Universal. Available in in 7 different lengths/strokes with mounting hardware compatible with a majority of all available DH/AM/Enduro/trail bikes on the market!

The TTX22M Universal aftermarket shock absorber is designed to handle the most challenging World Cup Downhill tracks while still providing pedal efficiency for the flat and uphill sections. The twin tube design allows the gas pressure to always backup the low-pressure side of the piston to keep pressure at a controlled level. This ensures consistent damping performance on all types of terrain and improves damping response to give outstanding control of the bike and tire movements.

Low and high speed compression and rebound damping are externally adjustable. Spherical bearings is offered as an option on widths up to 22 mm, reducing friction on the shock during side loads to improve small bump sensitivity. Shocks with stroke of 2.5” and less feature the stability mode. 3rd position on high speed adjuster increase compression damping to reduce suspension movements during less technical climbs.

We have developed new springs for the TTX 22 M Universal and decreased the weight by 25-30%.
