If you follow motorsport, especially on two wheels, there's a good chance we
don't need to tell you anything more about Ohlins. If they aren't a name you're
familiar with, or they are just a word on the side of your Double Barrel with a
funny umlaut over the ‘O,’ then understanding who they are and what they do
helps put this shock into context. Started in Sweden by Kenth Öhlin in 1976, his
suspension was piloted to its first Motocross World Champion title just two
years later by Gennady Moiseev. From there, they built a reputation for making
the best suspension in two-wheeled motor racing and, more recently, four-wheeled
as well. In 2007, the company celebrated the 200th world title for racers using
their shocks and forks.
Browsing through their hall of fame, the names include icons like Valentino
Rossi, Casey Stoner, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost, Tommy Makkinen and Juan-Pablo
Montoya. It's an impressive pedigree, no doubt, spanning MotoGP, Formula One,
WRC, Indy 500, Les Mans, and nearly any other type of racing that involves an
engine and, more importantly, suspension. There is something that makes their
record even more incredible, Öhlins have never sponsored anyone with free
suspension. Every single one of those racers and teams who won on Öhlins
suspension had to pay to use it.
" For sure, it has happened that riders have
got things free from other companies and left us, but they have, for the most,
us after a month or two. " - Kenth Ohlins
The TTX isn't Öhlins’ first foray into bike suspension. They were responsible
for the 46PRXLS, which is widely recognised as the shock that all others are
measured against today. At the time, the Double Barrel was the best shock that
Öhlins could make, and we are sure that if they felt it wasn't up to scratch, it
would have never seen the light of day with the Öhlins name associated to it.
The Double Barrel, however, was designed seven years ago, and Öhlins has learned
a lot more about suspension since...

- Large Selection of Spring Rates
- Fully Rebuildable
- Detailed Service Manual Included
- Excellent U.S. Tech. Support (Ohlins USA)
More Teams across the world use Ohlins Suspension.
Regarded as the highest quality, and finest craftsmanship.
Ohlins, the name is synonymous with performance.
Ohlins offers the finest suspension components available.
Why Ohlins? Perhaps the best reason is that replacements to exactly match the stock
components are readily available. Then there's the added convenience of the rear shocks
remote preload adjuster on Select Models, especially handy for those occasional two-up.
Add to that Ohlins sterling reputation for reliability and adjustability, and many
people's opinion that there just isn't a finer shock made. Top it off with a source that
sells at bargain basement prices (comparatively speaking, that is), and it makes little
sense to consider alternatives.
Ohlins is the Best Suspension.
ALL Shocks purchased from
Hard Racing will be custom setup for your Riding weight, and style, by the
PROFESSIONALS. (Ohlins USA)
