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!...
Of course it was our 40th Anniversary so we wanted to celebrate in as many different ways as possible as staff and guests from around the world were treated to events at Öhlins HQ to show them our appreciation of our success and growth. We also catalogued the history and heritage of the brand in a new commemorative book (see Life Begins at 40)
Race teams around the world gave us more reason to celebrate with yet another MotoGP Championship at the hands of Marc Marquez, National motorcycle titles in all four corners of the globe including the USA and UK, plus success on four wheels with Matias Ekström taking the World Rallycross series among many others.
As well as fulfilling orders for our ever growing global network (including fast growing markets such as in our story Far Eastern Movement) we developed several new products this year including new retro styled forks, cartridge kits and the revolutionary TTX Flow motocross shock. We go behind the technology of the shock in this edition of Performance.
Our continued push into the world of MTB continues unabated with new products and a presence at the two big Crankworx events, which you can read about also. Other stories include the amazing story of Norton at the Isle of Man TT, working with the flying Finn Tommi Mäkinen and an insight into life at Öhlins from Thomas Pettersson, who was there from day one!
The interest in Öhlins continues to grow and this month we went through the 200,000 follower mark on our diverse Facebook page. Check us out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
We hope you enjoy this issue and have a great festive break!
