The Öhlins Racing STX22 Air Shock for the Enduro and trail riding 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 all mountain 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.
- Öhlins's first air-sprung MTB shock; it's aimed towards the enduro/trail market to meet the increasing demands in high-performance suspension products.
- AUTOSAG enables the fastest, easiest, and most accurate way to set up your suspension.
- Proprietary STX Technology offers three-way, externally adjustable shock with low- and high-speed compression, plus rebound adjust.
- Third position on the high-speed adjuster is an additional platform damping—a stability mode facilitating long climbs while maintaining enough traction to handle technical trails.
- A high-quality seal incorporates a bushing that only sees support when the shock sees high side loads, like in corners or during a quick change in directions, so you get more grip, control, and bump absorption.

Rear Shocks Sizing
Rear Shocks Sizing
It is not as simple as just bolting on any rear shock, there are some very important measurements to take into consideration.
Once the spring type (air or coil) has been decided, there two fundamental measurements needed.
Eye to eye: The total shock length. Measurement is made between the centres of each mounting hole/bolt in a straight line. This must match the new shock and is listed by the frame manufacturer in either mm or inches, often along with the stroke length. eye to eye is listed first and stroke length second. For example, 190mm x 50mm or 7.5” x 2.0“
Stroke length: The amount of travel the shock has (not the bike) can be seen by how much the telescopic part of the shock moves under full compression. Either the shaft itself can be measured or it can be worked out from the difference between the eye-to-eye length when fully extended, and fully compressed. Shown as the second number in the shock size by the manufacturer (eg 190mm x 50mm or 7.5” x 2.0”), this again should be the same as the original shock and as intended by the frame manufacturer to work with that particular linkage design.
Hardware includes the bushings and bolts that fit into the eyelets at either end of the shock, allowing it to be fitted to the frame. Although standards are starting to settle, the hardware will vary with each frame and shock combination. If replacements are needed there are dedicated suspension tuning specialists who can supply these parts.
Coil shocks can be tuned to your riding style by using a spring with the correct spring rate for your weight. The best spring for you will most likely be purchased separately, some riders will find they experiment with different springs to find their best set up.
Springs are rated by pounds (lbs) and this should be printed on the spring along with the travel length of the spring in inches. For example 400 lbs x 2.25”.
Coil springs are available in either steel or titanium, there is no noticeable performance difference between the two apart from the weight advantage of titanium.
Most people will experiment with spring rates to find the right spring for them, although a few turns of preload can be added when setting sag it is always best to find the correct spring rate for your weight, riding style, and frame.
