Mountain bike 08/06/23 14:00 Migue A.

The Swedish suspension brand Öhlins is known for the quality and performance of its products, but although in its catalog there were forks and shocks for mountain bike gravity modes, the XC range was missing and has just been unveiled. This is the new Öhlins RXC34 m.1 fork, available with carbon or aluminum crown for 100, 110 and 120mm, and the lightweight TXC1Air and TXC2Air shocks with three positions.

New Öhlins XC suspension range

In early 2023 we learned that the BMC Racing mountain bike team had partnered with Öhlins to mount its suspensions throughout the season. Since then we knew it was only a matter of time before the Swedish brand introduced XC-specific suspensions.

In this new range, Öhlins has used its extensive experience and some of its existing technologies to develop with BMC Team high-performance forks and shocks ready to win any World Cup.
