A high performing and robust air-sprung shock, the TTX1Air offers the same exceptional trail smoothing capabilities as our double-can TTX2Air, but comes in a slimmer and lighter, single-can size.
Designed for trail bikes and eMTBs with more linear suspension systems, the TTX1Air is a versatile choice for riders looking for a lighter or more compact shock that offers outstanding performance along with the highest level of tuning options. The TTX1Air delivers the unrivalled sensitivity, control and flawless all-conditions damping that TTX products have built their reputation on.
The compact design makes the TTX1Air 60-80 grams lighter than the TTX2Air, while a new slim-fit end-eye means that it’s compatible with a wider number of frame designs. We’ve also increased the maximum air pressure capacity to handle a larger range of riders and the additional demands of e-MTB bikes.
The TTX1Air combines the superior damping function of our TTX system together with a low friction air-spring. The twin-tubed design enables two-way oil flow through the piston and the double tubes. With the ability to extensively tune the pressure when the oil passes the compression and rebound valves, we have created a well-balanced and extremely predictable damper. This results in a highly effective range of clicks enabling you to easily dial-in the shock and achieve the perfect suspension set-up.
The TTX1Air upgrades an already proven package of damping performance. The metric system design has also allowed us to increase the bushing overlap, making it more robust and improving side load protection. Our wiper seal and air sleeve lubrication technology minimises friction and delivers outstanding performance that resists fading between service intervals.
Just like every product fitted with TTX damping technology, the TTX1Air has a race-proven settings bank giving access to a huge range of options for tuning the damper to suit any specific rider, bike or riding style.

The TTX2 Air shock features a double air can to increase the positive air volume. This Is best suited to bikes with more progressive leverage ratios. The TTX2 Air has larger positive and negative air chamber volumes, a double-can, air spring design with additional control of the air volume spacing. This gives riders greater freedom to adjust the spring curve and easily dial in the exact amount of progression they desire.
The TTX1 Air shock has a smaller, single air can which increases the maximum air pressure capacity to handle a larger range of riders and the additional demands of e-MTB bikes or bikes that have a more linear leverage rate.

Tuning your Ohlins shock allows us to optimize performance for low-speed damping and high-peed damping inputs.
For compression, these inputs can be considered to be your bodyweight affecting the damper (low-speed, LSC) and terrain inputs (high-speed, HSC).
These inputs are "damped" by the TTX twin-tube damper which features in both the TTX shocks and the RXF and Dh forks.
Your LSC and HSC adjuster on your TTX damper gives you 6 clicks of useable adjustment for low-speed compression and rebound and 3 clicks of high-speed compression with the 3rd click engaging your pedal platform or "lockout".
With the Ohlins settings bank, we can customise the damping force that your fork exserts irrespective of your adjuster settings and we have a wide range of tunes available for all weight ranges and riding styles.
The shim arrangement on the main piston dictates how much fluid is displaced into the HSC and LSC valves. Once we select the correct shim arrangement for your weight this force can be fine-tuned on your adjusters to get the perfect ride without getting lost in too many clicks!
