OHLINS 29 STX 22 AM AIR SHOCK SJ/RHYME 29 (SBC 1745) - Gold/Black - 2018
The Öhlins STX22 Air Shock for the Stumpjumper FSR & Rhyme works off of a three-way, externally adjustable design that allows for both high- and low-speed compression, as well as rebound adjust. The adjustment ranges are specifically for trail riding, so they are easy to dial-in for the perfect feel. And as with the TTX, the third position on the high-speed adjuster features additional platform damping that's suited for climbing stability without sacrificing traction for technical trail sections.
Side-load and friction management were also high priorities in the design, as most shocks are only built to work with a bike that's in a straight line. This lead to Öhlins developing a high quality main seal that incorporates a bushing that only sees support when the shock sees high side loads, like in corners or during a quick change in directions. This design also comes with the benefit of extremely low friction levels, so when paired with the damping functions of the STX system, you'll experience exceptional grip, control, and bump absorption.
