Ohlins shock absorbers are an integral part of motor sport history. Past, present and future. Today, the company enjoys a major market presence in terms of high performance and top quality suspension products for motorcycles, cars, four-wheels and snowmobiles. Ohlins Racing's firm dedication to motocross and enduro led firstly to road racing, and then to new markets for production bikes, just as emphasis on snowmobile racing led to a new market for regular snowmobiles. More than 100 World Championship titles are definitive proof that Ohlins shock absorbers offer outstanding performance and reliability. And never one to forget his roots, Kenth Ohlins sees to it that race track service and support remains an important part of the company's operations.
Each product from Ohlins has been customised for a specific vehicle model. The target for the future is to achieve an annual volume increase of 15-20%. In order to make this happen, over a third of the company's workforce are actively involved in key research and development. Since the company was first started, front forks, front fork springs, steering dampers, special oils and greases have all been added to the Ohlins Racing product range. There is more to come.
