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 Öhlinsdual 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.
