A combination of a very light shock absorber, providing maximum control and stability on your mountain bike, has to be the dream for every rider?! Then don’t miss the latest MTB dampers from Öhlins. They impress with their low weight and provide incredible traction- regardless the surface. Whether you ride downhill, Enduro or simply hit the trails for fun, once you’ve experienced the Öhlins difference you’ll agree it was your best ever upgrade!

Manual controls

This version of the TXC2Air comes with a manual lever, featuring 3 ride modes, rebound adjustment, and 16 clicks of low-speed compression in the open mode. For those seeking more versatility, we offer an adapter—designed for 5,5 mm of wire pull per click—that enables remote compatibility.

Race proven TTX technology

Throughout the R&D process, we tested a number of technologies, focusing on optimal suspension performance for XCO and technical tracks. The TXC2Air incorporates Öhlins’ race proven TTX twin-tube technology for superior small bump sensitivity and enhanced traction on challenging cross-country tracks, giving you a smoother, more controlled ride every time. The damper design, featuring a serial shim stack, further boosts efficiency in the open mode, helping you to maintain your momentum and build speed when you’re actively pushing over natural or man-made rollers.

Öhlins XC system

As part of the Öhlins XC suspension system, the TXC2Air boasts a rider-friendly system to adjust air spring progressiveness and stroke. With our race proven setting bank, you’ll be able to fine-tune the shock to your unique riding style and bike linkage. Our new XC suspension products were developed in parallel, with the front forks and rear shocks designed to match each other for an optimal balance on the bike. Whether you’re a seasoned pro, weekend warrior, or somewhere in between, the combination of the TXC2Air and the RXC34 m.1 fork will give you a level of confidence-inspiring performance that’s equally at home on the Olympic stage and your local trails.
