Hendersonville, North Carolina: Hot and ready for the grid after winning the AMA Pro National Guard Superbike title, and sweeping the podium with Josh’s Herrin and Hayes of Monster Energy Graves Yamaha, and Martin Cardenas of Yoshimura Racing Suzuki, respectively, Öhlins introduces the latest version of its multi-time, championship-winning twin-tube technology shock, the TTX GP.
On the newly released TTX GP shock, compression and rebound adjustors are updated with new needle profiles, resulting in improved flow guidance and volume control, for more precise and consistent damping fine tuning. The available range of adjustment is also now broader, while establishing a new industry standard of minimized shock-to-shock variance. These advances allow for improved chassis feedback, giving the rider enhanced control.
The TTX GP’s primary piston is redesigned for improved traction and feel, optimizing the established components of the TTX GP’s lineage from the ground-breaking TTX36. The TTX GP also has Moto GP style damping adjustors. As with all twin-tube TTX shocks by Öhlins, the TTX GP has completely segregated compression and rebound damping, and no risk of cavitation.
The TTX GP will be available in applications for most major sportbikes, and is equally suited to enhance a rider’s control and confidence on the street and on the racetrack. Racers. Track-day riders, or street enthusiasts, can use the dealer-locator on the Öhlins USA website to find the closest certified Öhlins retailer.
