Öhlins Road & Track Coilovers Mazda Miata 90-05
For the past 3 decades one name comes to mind when thinking about a state-of-the-art engineered suspension product, Öhlins. Öhlins has remain true to its number one goal; superior road handling without sacrificing comfort in the day-to-day transports.
The Road and Track Coilover Suspension System by Öhlins is just another great peice of art design to perform at every level it needs to. Utilizing DFV (Dual Flow Valve) Technology is part of what makes Öhlins climb to the top as a leader in Coilover Systems. The DFV gives the same characteristics on rebound as it does on compression by using constent flow of fluid into both directions, resulting in a quicker response from wheel and tire to effectively resume their important positions of hugging the ground below. One other thing to note is by inputing Öhlins DFV technology this technology opens more quickly and easily to minor road imperfections, making the ride comfort more suprisingly subtle and more akin to an OEM strut rather than a coilover set-up.
One thing many people seem to always bring up when thinking of a coilover system is the hassle of adjusting the ride height. Öhlins instead of using the same boring system of the past when designing their coilover that just by raising or lowering the ride height had affects of compression or extending the spring, ending in a limited suspension travel causing topping out. Öhlins fixed this by its method to leave the spring seat in its perfect mounting position, while the lower flange spins easily on the threaded body, allowing adjustment with absolute precision making it a perfect unit Öhlins engineers set out to achieve. Along with their unique adjustment technology Öhlins yet added another unique part with their needle bleed valve that expands with temperature, closing the gap that the fluid travels through, maintaining a consistent damping rate. This will allow the driver to concentrate on braking points and apexes while the Öhlins technology take care of the damping.
The Road and Track McPherson struts also feature camber adjustable upper and lower mounts to give you the possibility to fine tune for the right occasion, may it be for just a stroll around the block or showing of the skills at the track.

Ohlins have manufactured shock absorbers for motorcycles for a long time, but they soon realized that their successful concept could also be adapted for other vehicles. They now produce shock absorbers for a wide variety of cars, including Rally, Offroad, Touring, GT, Formula, Sports Cars, Stock Cars and Road & Track.
Since the companys inception in 1976, their watchwords have been performance, precision, quality, durability and reliability. This is one of the secrets behind all the successes Ohlins shock absorbers continually enjoy out on the race track.
