Ohlins RXF 34 29″
The new Öhlins RXF 34 is designed for all high-end 29er trail/all mountain bikes that demand low weight and high performance.
The fork is available in 120mm, 140mm and 160mm to suit a wide range of platforms. The fork features a twin tube design and implements the Öhlins TTX technology to the front end of the bike. The twin tube design enables parallel and separated oil flow so the fork provides optimal pressure at all times. Controlling the pressure levels ensures initial smoothness and staying high in travel with maintained bump absorption, traction and stability.
Low and high speed compression are externally adjustable and fully independent. Contrary to most of the forks currently available on the market, the shape of the spring force can be adjusted, such as increasing sensitivity without bottoming out. Everything is brought together by a uniquer forged uni crown for high stiffness and the highest tyre control with less chassis flex. It all means it is a 34mm fork that are more rigid than 35mm forks and makes it comparable with a 36mm fork.

One interesting feature of the fork is the tapered steerer that lacks a flat seat for a crown race. The RFX 34 steerer interfaces directly with the 52 x 40 x 7, 45° x 45°, lower bearings found on Specialized frames without using a replaceable race. For those using a Cane Creek integrated headset, you can install a 52mm, 45° x 45°, bearing in your tapered headsets (Cane Creek part number AAA0695K). Some headsets will not be compatible with the RXF 34 fork, but your worst case scenario is likely just ordering a Lower cup and bearing from Cane Creek if you want to run the Öhlins fork on your non-Specialized bike.
