Öhlins for 2018 Softails

Öhlins says its NIX 22 cartridge kit “is based on experience gained through decades of high-end suspension manufacturing. The kit delivers loads of performance with stable damping characteristics while ensuring a smooth, comfortable ride.”

The kit uses their proven “NIX” design, which features compression damping in the left leg and rebound damping in the right leg, which is said to allow for more precise function and stability. Adjustments are made at the top, together with the spring preload.
The cartridge system is an easy install bolt-on for standard front forks and has a 22 mm piston diameter; a range of springs are available.
Also seen here, the all new STX 46 monotube shock absorber for the 2018 Harley-Davidson Softail “gives an impressive increase in performance and comfort.”
Öhlins says the STX 46 has some “unique features, such as a silver hydraulic preload adjuster, black spring, custom black preload handle with laser etched Ö logo and CNC machined aluminum handle to look great on all versions of the new Softail.”
Features include Öhlins’ proprietary STX technology and 46 mm piston; a range of spring rates are available.
