The RXF34 m.2 uses the newly-designed OTX18 damper. Sprung out of the highly successful TTX18 found in the Öhlins 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 optimized 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 customize their ride feel even further.
Designed for riders who cover lots of ground - FAST. The new fork replaces the original RXF34, and offers a short-travel 120-130mm setup optimized for lightweight 29er trail bikes. Weighing in at just 1698g, the fork can boast of a brand new air spring and damper adapted for the demands of the emerging “downcountry” riding style, while still carrying all the hallmarks of Öhlins’ race-proven performance suspension seen from its long-travel, single-crown cousins - the RXF36 m.2 & RXF38 m.2.
