Choose Your Offset

One of the outcomes of a fork being developed with the Race pedigree of Ohlins is that they recognise riders desire for specific offset. Choose you the crowns with the offset you desire.

Ohlins Custom Tuning

Usable range. That's the Ohlins approach to clickers and dials. One setting doesn't necessarily suit every trail and environment. Steep, wet and gnarly is very different to dry, smooth and flowy. Each requires a different approach in order to get the maximum benefit from your suspension. The idea of 'useable range' is that every combination of user accessible adjustment, even the extreme limits of the dials, should result in a completely rideable experience giving you all the options you need to make on trail adjustments in response to changing conditions. To achieve this we can tune each fork and shock to suit you, your bike and your riding style and make sure you're getting the correct useable range and maximising the performance of your suspension.

Custom tuning is free of charge for all Ohlins suspension purchased through BRINK. Further adjustments can be made later for a small additional fee or as part of a standard service.
