Swedish suspension legend, Öhlins, is a huge name in the world of motorcycling and it is now bringing more of its suspension expertise to the four-wheeled world with these, its new Road&Track range of coilovers.

A more than 30 year long tradition of high-end racing commitments and state-of-the-art solutions within advanced suspension technology is now available for street cars all over the world. The focus has been clear from the very beginning – superior road handling without sacrificing comfort in your day-to-day transports. The time of compromises are over!

Hidden away inside the distinctive gold and silver machined billet alloy and carbon steel bodies is some serious suspension technology, the highlight of which is the unique dual-flow valve (DVF) which replaces the parallel compression valve (PCV) which is normally found in other units.

The DVF unit is unique in that it gives the same characteristics on rebound as it does on compression, thanks to the damper fluid having a consistent path of flow in both directions.

Because the DVF design opens more quickly, the ride comfort is more akin to an OEM setup, and with graduated front camber adjustments and factory- matched combined damping and rebound rates on one positive detent adjuster, the units offer unparalleled setup options.

Height adjustment is achieved by winding the lower mounting face up or down, rather than the spring platform itself, which leaves the free length of the spring untouched, meaning that the suspension is hardly compressed at all despite the lowered ride height.

The kit is only available for the Mk5 VW Golf at present although more Volkswagen fitments will be announced later in the year.
