Öhlins now offer front end upgrades to the Dual Sport and Adventure bikes. Based on the successful road racing kits, the Öhlins cartridge kits have now been made for the medium sized adventure bikes. Based on the succesful Öhlins technology, we are proud to introduce Öhlins cartridge kits for this segment. Medium sized adventure bikes used in their right element on true adventures both on and off the road can now enjoy the improved comfort and performance from an Öhlins cartridge kit.
Öhlins R&D decided to go for a solution based on the successful Öhlins NIX technology to reach the goal of a cartridge that can deliver both comfort and performance, and go longer than an off-road kit between servicing.
The small design of the cartridge kit makes it fit easily in the upside down OE forks most adventures bikes are equipped with today. The kits are easy to install, just pop out the OE kits and install the Öhlins cartridge kits instead.
Thanks to the FKA100 kits from Öhlins the bikes now has a fully adjustable front end. Rebound damping is on one leg and compression in the other leg, with adjustable spring preload in both legs. Together with an overall improved damping system, the bike is transformed and can deliver so much more.
Different springs are available for riders individual demands as well as an effective hydraulic stop inside the kit to prevent bottoming.
After tests we feel confident this cartridge kit improves the
