All-new Yamaha & Öhlins Öfferings

Öhlins and Yamaha go together like a ham and cheese sandwich. The Swedish suspension überlord was once partly owned by the Japanese tuning fork brand and, although Kenth Öhlin bought back his majority shareholding in 2007, the two brands have always remained synonymous. And now there’s a fresh collaboration for this season. Yamaha dealers are offering a new range of… Read more →

Video: What’s inside an Öhlins Shock?

Suspension is the sort of technology and componentry we take for granted: get on bike > ride bike > springs and damping work…hopefully. With little subject knowledge and understanding of what’s inside, it’s also a topic usually best left for the pros.   Yet still, servicing and maintenance is greatly overlooked. Most manufacturers recommend a suspension service every two years, though… Read more →

Video: Shocking Workshop Skills

In another episode of 44T Blog Sessions, Jason Statham and Robert Webb attack the Vonda with an ill-fated attempt at removing the poorly shock.

Who can blame these vixens? When a certain request is acknowledged more than once, it’s definitely worth pursuing. There was an onslaught of inquisitives following the Öhlins FGRT fork fitting to the… Read more →

Öhlins FGRT Fork: The Fitting…

Öh My Gösh

The latest influx of technology being debuted in 2015 is getting us seriously aroused: everything from auto-blippers to pit lane limiters, 6-axis gyros to lean-angle displays, and iPhones that control a bike’s rider aids all have a welcome place, adding safety (a bit important), speed (important) and fun (exceptionally important).
