THE RXF34 m.2 benefits from the brand’s near half a century of experience crafting suspension products, from Formula 1, to motocross and MotoGP, enduro riding, downhill, and now downcountry. Weighing in at just 1698g, the fork can boast of a brand new air spring and damper adapted for the demands of the emerging riding style, while still carrying all the hallmarks of Öhlins’ race-proven performance suspension seen from its long-travel cousins.
OTX18 - the ‘downcountry damper’
The RXF34 m.2 uses Öhlins’ newly-designed OTX18 damper. Sprung out of the highly successful TTX18 found in the brand’s downhill and trail forks, the OTX18 is purpose-built for lightweight trail bikes. It shares several key components with its bigger TTX18 brother, but weighs 27% less and is optimised for faster and more fluid trail riding, striking the optimal balance between traction, control, weight and stiffness. Like all Öhlins dampers, the OTX18 offers impressive adjustability for fine-tuning, with fifteen clicks of low-speed compression and rebound adjustment alongside three for tweaks to high-speed compression. As always, a large and extensively-tested setting bank is also available for those who wish to customise their ride feel even further.
Our suspension workshop houses a wide array of specialist tools and machines along with a large inventory of spares and service parts.
