Öhlins RXF38 m.2 review: for proper hard charging

by 1

The Swedish suspension supremos originally joined the 38mm stanchion game with the Öhlins RXF38 m.1 which was only available as an OEM product. Last year though, Öhlins launched this RXF38 m.2 and I’ve been testing it for the past three months.

Ross pairs his childlike excitement for bikes with a complete disregard for the wellbeing of his ribs, or his rims. Best known for riding cheeky trails, his time is also spent trail building in his local woods, drinking beer, eating pies and entertaining his two children.

    “intended to be raced on the steepest and roughest tracks in the world”
    “Likes to go really fast, really hard”

    Found exactly the same thing with my RXF36. A damper retune made it far more comfortable to ride for lesser mortals like myself. Otherwise a fantasic fork!
