Öhlins has announced the release of its new RXC34 m.1 fork and TXCAir shock. It means the brand finally has a thoroughbred cross-country race product to complete its line-up.
Building on the racing success of its downhill and enduro forks, the components in the new XC range have been designed to work together. They’re claimed to boast superior handling and precise steering to enable riders to push their limits on ever more technical XCO World Cup tracks with the latest XC race bikes .
The new suspension units feature several new technologies, including serial shim stacks, an updated two-chamber air-spring design and the option of a carbon CSU (crown steerer unit).
They also build on the success of Öhlins’ existing line-up, with proven twin-tube technology featuring in the TXCAir shock. The fork has the brand’s signature stiff chassis and floating axle, combined with a lightweight, single-tube OTX14 damper.
Combined with its partnership with Team BMC Racing, it’s clear these new products have both eyes fixed on the 2024 Paris Olympics, too. Five things you need to know
