This has been one of our busiest years yet and this latest edition of Performance gives a taste of what we have been up to!...



40 years ago Kenth Öhlin had a vision of how his suspension could change the world of biking and today we can see that has been the case… but also in cars and MTB!...

There is no denying it, the Isle of Man TT is the ultimate test of rider and machine. A 37 ¾ closed roads course that sees riders hurtle through towns and villages, inches away from walls, hedgerows and even fans!

It seems only fitting that having been formed in the paddock of Swedish MX racing, Öhlins Racing celebrate their 40th Anniversary with a radical new product for the MX market, the TTX Flow rear shock!...



The name Tommi Mäkinen will undoubtedly evoke memories in any 1990’s motorsport fan, as the Finnish Rally driver dominated the World Rally Championship over the second half of the decade. With four world titles and 24 victories to his name, Tommi is the second most successful driver in WRC history and each of his Championship victories came behind the wheel of an Öhlins shod Ralliart Mitsubishi Lancer EVO.



If you ask any Mountain biker which event they’d like to watch or (for the very brave!) compete in, chances are they will say ‘Crankworx’!



Billed as the ‘pinnacle of motorcycle racing in Asia’, its easy to see why the Asia Road Racing Championship (ARRC) has attracted so much interest from manufacturers, racers, promoters and fans. And never one to miss an opportunity, Öhlins have also been there for 2016 supporting local distributors, teams and young riders.
