Issue 10

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!...

To celebrate this landmark anniversary staff, partners and VIP’s from around the world converged on the factory for two events marking the company’s birthday. A special commemorative book was also created with stories and insights from around the globe and across the spectrum of time and specialities.

Visitors and their families were received at the factory and were given a special tour before a dinner party with 360 people enjoying the famously fine cuisine at HQ!

A separate event for worldwide distributors, dealers and VIPs featured a trip around the beautiful Stockholm Archipelago by boat, allowing everyone to enjoy a tranquil summer’s day with their colleagues and reminisce on their journey with Öhlins. There was then a dinner at the factory facilities in Upplands Väsby where guests had the possibility to visit the assembly plants.

The 40th Anniversary book, (one lucky Performance subscriber will win a Kenth signed copy!) catalogues the Öhlins epic journey form the early years with Kenth and his lathe to the company it is today, winning championships from grassroots up to MotoGP and Le Mans 24HR.
