Öhlins Racing

Retro 43

Swedish suspension specialist Öhlins offers a 43 mm conventional universal fork for any custom bike builder who wants to give the bike “supreme suspension performance.”

Featuring the familiar Öhlins Racing design in black or the well known Öhlins gold version, inside the fork is their proven and well known NIX technology, which features compression damping in the left leg and rebound damping in the right leg.
This allows for stable damping characteristics due to positive pressure build-up and a more precise adjustment, since the separated circuits don’t affect each other - adjustment for compression, rebound and spring preload are all easily and externally accessible at the top caps.
The company says that “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 caliper and fender mountings, which enables the fork to be easily adapted to various applications and models by the bike builder.”
These forks have a 130 mm stroke, 800 mm length, 43 mm triple clamp diameter and 9.5 N/mm spring rate with a range of optional spring rates available.
