ÖHLINS CELEBRATE MX SUCCESS WITH 2012 RANGE AT INTERNATIONAL DIRT BIKE SHOW
October 28 2011.


Öhlins Racing UK celebrates a year of racing success and an exciting new product line-up at the International Dirt Bike Show with a full display of products including the 2012 factory derived forks now available for most models of machine.

This season has seen Öhlins riders take success from Club to International events around the globe, including MX2 Champions in both the Maxxis British Championship (Arnoud Tonus) and the well supported Red Bull Pro National series (Elliott Banks-Browne). The suspension specialists also sent over a number of engineers for an exclusive try-out and set-up day after the British MXGP for riders of all ages and abilities to experience the latest products.

MX specialist and Öhlins Centre MH Racing Services will be attending the Dirt Bike Show (stand B04) with key 2012 products including the latest MX forks, TTX44 MKII rear shock plus a new TTX30 shock to suit smaller bikes from 50cc to 65cc.

The new equipment marks a renewed drive into the important Off Road market for Öhlins, a company formed by founder Kenth Öhlin to create the best MX suspension of its time. The firm has recently announced its most important MX product in recent times; factory derived forks that any MX racer can now buy from their local Öhlins Centre, an opportunity previously reserved for top MXGP squads.

With gold outer tubes, the new MX forks not only stand out from the crowd, they offer championship winning performance. Designed to offer a degree of flex to improve the ride quality, the outers are machined from aluminium then anodised gold for that Öhlins factory finish. The 48mm inner tubes have a Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coating with low friction seals and bushes to reduce friction and offer improved performance and damping precision as well as a tough outer surface.

Chris Witter, Business Development Manager, Öhlins Racing UK commented, "It's been a great year for Öhlins, especially in the UK with both the British and Red Bull titles coming our way. We have some fantastic new product for 2012 combined with an exciting announcement, so we're looking forward to displaying our products at the International Dirt Bike show via MH Racing Services."
