The Retro offers a 43mm conventional universal fork to any custom bike builder that wants to give the bike supreme suspension performance and is available in either the traditional gold or stealth black colourway.

Inside the fork, NIX technology features compression damping in the left leg and rebound damping in the right leg. Adjustment for compression, rebound and spring preload are easily accessible at the top caps. This fork delivers stable characteristics while ensuring great bump absorption to give the rider a smooth and comfortable ride. The fork bottoms are delivered without brake calliper and fender mountings, this enables the fork to be easily adapted to various models by the bike builder.

Öhlins will be joining up with the customising kings of the Bike Shed London for its annual show over the bank holiday weekend of 26th to 28th May. As official partner of the event, the Swedish manufacturer will bring special exhibits and support for this burgeoning scene.
