First Look: Öhlins TTX Flow Shock and Forks 9

We recently worked with Öhlins to do an extended test and get the chance to check out their new 2017 product line, including their TTX Flow shock. We have a full review coming out in a few days, but until then listen in as we walk you through the ins-and-outs of their suspension components and design. if you're looking for more info, check out Öhlins.com for the release dates and further info on the TTX Flow.

ML...I gotta ask the same question as BVM below. Price range? And in your opinion , if you had the money , would it be worth while to get a new set of the Ohlin's for a 16" Kawi 450? I mean if you were kinda serious about the racing thing...Good vet A/B rider? I have Factory connection do my suspension and I'm wondering with them doing everything possible they can do to my stuff....could they even get it close to what the Ohlin's stuff is? Is it that much better you think?

I might be wrong but the suspension didn't appear to be that smooth throughout the video, especially that last scene of the bike riding away.

Your perception is quite unusual, I must say. Everything is working very well in the video... I don't know what else to say actually, it's all on point.

Didn't you see how unsettled the chassis was in the last scene? just looks far too soft

That was probably the section of the track I was most comfortable with those settings. I've ridden a few other bikes in that same section the past few weeks, much stiffer mind you, and the outcome wasn't nearly as good as what I experienced while testing these. Overall, I'd say it's one of the softer settings I've ended on with a set of suspension, but the recovery control was good enough to do this.
