Ohlins RXF 36 120 Boost Fork - 29/27.5 Plus description:
Given Ohlins Racing's renowned history in the moto sport world, it's not surprising that the company was quietly building rear shocks and replacement parts for some of the biggest suspension manufacturers in the US. With last year's introduction of the RXF 34 line of forks, Ohlin stepped out of the shadows and to the front of the suspension fork game. This year, the Ohlins RXF 36 120 Boost Fork - 29/27. 5 Plus expands the line with 36mm stanchions, Boost axle widths, and compatibility with both 29-inch and 27. 5+ wheels.Given that Ohlins is so exclusive that it doesn't even offer top moto athletes free gear, it's logical that its engineers created a design that's truly unique in the mountain bike field. The RXF 34 and RXF 36 are the only forks on the market to feature a twin tube damper, which separates the rebound and compression oil flow. Since the twin tube design lets the oil flow parallel and independently, the fork maintains optimal pressure at all times, riding higher with a smoother initial stroke. It maintains consistent, predictable small bump compliance across successive hits to leave you more in control of your lines and with more responsive traction.The fork also includes an addition to its other leg, adding an extra positive chamber to the typical air spring loadout of one negative and one positive. The presence of two positive chambers means that the resistance can be dialed externally -- yep, without internal spacers -- to alter the compression curve, so the fork can be set to maintain that initial suppleness but ramp-up harder to avoid bottoming out on big hits. The RXF 36 climbs with confident traction but won't sell you out by diving on rowdy descents. Given the host of absurdly versatile all-mountain 29/27. 5+ bikes we've been seeing unveiled over the past year, we suspect this added versatility in fork suspension will quickly become a necessary feature.The RXF doesn't feature a proper lockout switch, but the high-speed compression adjustment...
