Rent Öhlins Suspension at Your Next Track Day

06/10/2010 @ 9:42 am, by Jensen Beeler7 COMMENTS

NESBA, a track organization near and dear to our hearts here at Asphalt & Rubber, is trying out a new program that will allow its track day enthusiasts to rent Öhlins shocks during its track days. The program, which is sponsored by Spiegler Performance, costs only $150 and includes help from an Öhlins certified technician.

If a rider wants to buy the shock after using it, that $150 is applied towards the purchase price, which effectively makes this a try before you buy program for Öhlins and Spiegler. NESBA’s track day at Putnam Park on June 12th & 13th will be the first event to take advantage of this opportunity, but more events are planned, and will be announced on the NESBA forum.

    What a great idea. So few people realize how big a part suspension is in going fast safely. Big ups on Öhlins and NESBA.

    so simple, but so genius as most ideas usually are. Great way to sell suspension products!

    do you know how hard it would be to say at the end of the day, no could you please take those off. Its like hooking someone on drugs

    I can’t imagine having to give it back. I was lucky enough to find a deal on a slightly used Ohlins shock for my SV650S. Even after Ohlins serviced it and gave a clean bill of health, I spent about half-price of new and the difference over stock is night and day. I know everyone says that, but everyone says that for a reason.

    But if the front forks are not up to playing on par with the shock…huummm.

    Well then they’ll have to start renting Ohlins forks to go with the shock ;)
