Multi-World Champion -
TTX and TTX MKII Shock DETAIL
The TTX damper is the
culmination of three decades of Ohlins Suspension's
success in championship events winning more than 100
World Championships. Many years of work together with some of the world’s most
successful racing teams together with advanced dynamic analysis methods
developed at Ohlins Racing headquarters
in Sweden has given Ohlins the unique knowledge needed
to design the TTX Shock.
The Ohlins TTX
Shock, originally developed for formula racing, is
designed to handle the demanding damping characteristics needed for all types of
tracks, from street courses to super speedways.
The Ohlins TTX Shock
is fully adjustable with maximized damper response
together with qualities you’ve never seen before when it comes to "settings".
The adjustment range is huge with equal increments of force throughout
the adjustment range. Even the shape of the damping curve can easily be changed.
All adjusters affect the flow from the main piston, not the piston rod
The compression damping forces of the TTX Shock are
not, as in a conventional damper, caused by a pressure drop on the rebound side,
but by increased pressure on the compression side. This reduces the risk of
cavitation and makes any reservoir valve or high gas pressure unnecessary. So,
no balancing of reservoir damping to main piston damping is needed to avoid
cavitation and improve damping response. Maximum response and minimum risk of
cavitation will always occur. With no reservoir valve, the internal pressure of
the damper unit will be kept to a minimum. The low amount of hysteresis results
in excellent short stroke/high force performance. Also, a very low gas pressure
can be used without any loss of damping performance.
UPGRADES TO THE NEW
TTX MKII SERIES
· New piston ( aluminum) and new piston band ( homogeneous, not open).
· Steel tubes ( both inner and outer tube), which is not in any picture yet,
looks slightly grey and mat.
· Back valves are re-designed, with other spring rates to improve traction and
tire feel / grip.
· Adjuster housings are visually different. Shim stack for rebound / comp valves
are the same.
The mkII project has been running for some time now, the “steel tube knowledge”
is from WSBK racing, and the improvement is great! So we decided to give this
one the name mkII just to show there is better performance and less hysteresis!
This is ALL NEW
Technology, from Ohlins MOTO GP Division.
TTX36 Shocks are what you see on Valentino Rossi's Bike, as well as nearly
Every Moto GP Team, Factory AMA Team, and World Superbike Team.
Correct Pressure Balance. Wider
Adjustments. Better Feedback From Tire.
Completely Separate Compression and Rebound Functions.
More Traction under Acceleration out of the Corners.

Key Benefits of Ohlins Suspension
- Fine Swedish quality
- Easy to adjust
- 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. PERIOD.
