In the second in our series of Workshop Talks, Matt takes us through the key technical and performance benefits of the Ohlins TTX 22 rear shocks.
Product overview of the Ohlins TTX 22 Rear Shocks.
• Twin-Tube-Technology (TTX) • Weight between 425 and 460 g (without spring) • Aluminium design, hard anodized
• Fully serviceable and rebuildable
• 2 years limited warranty
• 3 clicks high speed compression damping
• 16 clicks low speed compression damping
• 7 clicks rebound damping
TTX is the only shock technology that truly offers low hysteresis damping performance. This translates into a ride quality of bump absorption and traction that is unmatched in the industry today.
The shock uses Öhlins patented twin-tube design to separate compression from rebound. The TTX also uses spherical bearings on the forward shock mount to allow the shock to rotate while the bike is under side-load, an advancement proven in the motocross industry by greatly improving cornering traction on rough terrain.
The series of shock, either 14 or 16 refers to which reservoir the shock has. The original sideways facing adjusters are the 14 series shocks with the new universal inline reservoir being the 16 series shocks. **All metric sized shock are 14 series.** The difference between the two is purely for fitment purposes, with the functionality of the shock being identical.
