Their success helped the company became one of the most sought-after brands in the racing community and high-performance sector.

Motorsport And Racing Heritage

Ohlins Racing has been an integral part of the motorsports world and the motorcycle and automotive industries for over 40 years. Ohlins has been best known for manufacturing shock absorbers for motorcycles for a long time. They then realized that their successful concept could also be adapted for other vehicles. They now produce shock absorbers for a wide variety of cars, including rally, off-road, touring, GT, formula, stock cars, sports cars, and road & track.

Why Choose Ohlins?

Ohlins has been the choice for discerning drivers for decades for a reason. The company lives and breathes vehicle suspensions and is always on the cutting edge of suspension design and technology. Analyzing data and evaluating suspension performance with Touring and GT cars, Formula 1 and Indycars, and World Superbikes, Ohlins has learned a lot through winning.

The lessons learned show up in the company's aftermarket products and service, thus giving enthusiasts the very best performance in steering dampers, forks, suspension systems, and more.

Ohlins also understands what drivers need. Whether it's sporty handling around town or a weekend endurance race, you'll find the perfect suspension from Ohlins and Vivid Racing.

  • Daily drivers and weekend warriors will love the road and track suspension designs that are long on performance and short on compromise. Because dual-flow valves open more quickly and easily, ride comfort is similar to an OEM strut rather than a Coilover set-up. Over undulating surfaces, the road and track units allow the car to crest bumps and pot-holes with stability and control by keeping traction at the optimal level.
  • Dedicated track suspensions feature pre-tuned, track-ready monotube packages with dual flow valve technology, plus these performance features:
    • Adjustable Damping and Ride Height
    • Spherical Upper Mounts
    • Swift springs to ?HLINS specs
    • Shake Rig and Track Validated
    • Rebuildable
  • Rally suspensions using TTX technology for ultimate strength and durability, TTX pro suspensions for high-performance sports cars, and custom builds are also available. If Ohlins' suspensions can help win over 300 Championships and counting, then imagine what they can do for your ride.

Not Your Ordinary Shock Manufacturer

The company also provides expert service for all their products, so you can keep your Ohlins suspension working at peak performance. Here's a brief breakdown of some of what the company's factory-trained technician can do:

  • Disassembles your suspension to inspect all components for wear. 
  • Measures to verify tolerances are within factory specifications.
  • Replaces all relevant worn seals and parts.
  • Reassembles the suspension, vacuum fills with Ohlins specification oil, and dyno-tested to ensure quality, functionality, and performance.
