What was first released as an exclusive on Specialized bikes is now available in a universal version made to fit more bikes. The Öhlins STX 22 Air Universal is available in four different lengths/strokes and is compatible with the majority of enduro/trail bikes.

It features "a large piston diameter balanced by a large compression valve that ensures internal pressures are kept under control. This results in low hysteresis and excellent damping response, offering ride efficiency without tampering with downhill control. Low and high speed compression and rebound damping are externally adjustable."

"The air spring features a new seal system optimized for low friction but also to give a smooth balancing of pressure between the air chambers. The result is initial suppleness supported by mid-stroke control and that extra bottom out resistance coming from air spring characteristics. It is also possible to tune the spring curve by adding or removing volume spacers or additional oil in the positive air chamber for a more progressive or a linear feel."
