Ohlins MX SD2.1 Steering Damper
The Ohlins Steering damper SD2.1 marks the latest
evolutionary leap for handlebar mounted damper technology. Equipped with a new Uni-flow valve system, the SD 2.1 controls the flow of hydraulic fluid in one
direction and eliminates fluctuations of damping characteristics previously
caused by changes in handle bar direction. The system is also pressurized to
compensate for any temperature changes.
The Ohlins Steering damper SD2.1 is a hydraulic damper that counteracts head shake and
alleviates shock against the front wheel, which gives a safer riding.
The damper is fitted on the upper triple clamp, in the centre over the steering
(fig.1a and fig 1b). When turning, and in the event of wobbling, shock, etc.,
the damper is
rotated, thus forcing fluid through the valve system in the damper top-lid. Two
are adjustable - see Settings Below.
The Ohlins MX SD 2.1 steering damper has two external
adjusters (fig.2). The DL-valve (Damping Level) controls the combined low
and high speed flow. The RTC-valve (Return To Centre) controls the damping
back to centre position . See figure 3.
The Íhlins steering damper is delivered with the adjusters set in a
suggested basic position, see the recommendation below. Turn clockwise to
increase damping and counter clockwise to decrease it (fig.2).
Turn the damping adjusters clockwise to fully closed (centre position zero
). Then, turn counter clockwise to open, and count the clicks until you
reach the recommended number of clicks.
The new silhouette is a result of a much easier way of mounting the damper under
the handlebar. The new steering damper is now equipped with a completely new
valving system, eliminating any fluctuation of the damping characteristics
depending on making a left or a right turn. The new UniFlow feature is actually
a system that controls the flow of the hydraulic fluid into only one direction
hence the new fluctuation free damping curve. The system is also pressurized to
compensate any temperature changes.
Let's face it, if you crash the first thing that breaks is your steering
damper. Why?? Because most all use some sort of dampening rod.. that gets bent
or worse ripped right out of the housing when the bike falls over. All except
the The Rotary Damper. That in itself is worth so much more than All the
leading competition. If you add up all the features of the Ohlins SD2.1
Steering Damper ( High Speed & Low Speed Adj. ) Virtually Bullet Proof Design ..It's
clear there is only one way to go. We have had 100% satisfaction rating from our
customers on ALL Ohlins SD2.1 Dampers.
