Coil or Air: We Test the All-New Öhlins RXF 36 m.2 Fork

All-new damping cartridge, bigger chassis, updated seals - the changes made to the latest enduro fork from Öhlins have turned it into a real contender.

Rating: Vital Review

2018 saw Öhlins introduce a bunch of new products, as they sought to expand their mountain bike line and address a few earlier shortcomings. The RXF 36 m.2 (referred to as "RXF 36 Trail" at the launch) is the latest offering from the Swedish suspension specialists to hit the shelves, and following our positive initial impressions, we were keen to put some more time on it to see how it measures up to the class leaders. This big-hitting single-crown fork features a number of external adjustments, one of which is fairly unique, and changes to both air spring and damping architecture have left it with vastly improved action and all the poise needed to tackle today's faster, rougher tracks and trails. Check our our video review below to see it in action and learn more!
