Never mind the outside… it’s the inside that counts. Engineers at Öhlins HQ put all their attention on making a universal kit with the powerful TTX technology to give all MX junkies out there a price competitive masterpiece with tons of performance and handling.
The thing is that you can keep your standard Front Fork legs, just pull out the standard inserts and pop in the new kit.
The completely new MX Front Fork Cartridge kit is based on TTX technology which means a positive pressure balance in the system, thanks to the twin tube technology. The gas pressurized dividing piston inside does an excellent job pushingthehydraulicfluidbackintothelowpressuresideand the end result is better performance and no more cavitation.
The 8 mm steel hollow piston rod makes the kit somewhat lighter and the main piston diameter is 22 mm. All other details are in aluminium and the only inconsistency will be the length of the kit depending on the model of the bike.
The 2013 version which features a new one-way rebound valve is further fine tuned for 2014 to improve the performance.The improvements include new settings for some applications and new improved enduro settings. The new one-way rebound valve improves the performance and gives better front wheel control.
Also for 2014 the cartridge has a top out spring to improve mid corner feel.
