Dampers deep dive with Öhlins

Polestar 2 is greater than the sum of its parts. And that’s due, in large part, to the parts being so great. Such as the revolutionary dampers provided by Swedish suspension manufacturer Öhlins.

What makes the Öhlins dual flow valve (DFV) dampers as excellent as they are lies entirely within Öhlins’ mindset, one they share with Polestar: an obsession with detail. Whether the countless test loops, the endless testing, or the constant experimentation, Öhlins is never truly satisfied, always chasing optimum performance.

When in Rovaniemi

Do as the locals do. Words of wisdom that any seasoned traveller is familiar with. They don’t just govern behavior, however. They speak to the importance of having an open mind, embracing new customs, and adapting to one’s surroundings. There are equivalents in all languages. In English, one is told that “when in Rome, do as the Romans do”. It counts for the Italian capital, just as it counts for northern Finland. Which is exactly where we headed this winter.
