Öhlins Racing’s CES system (Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension) integrates the latest technology in hydraulics and electronics into a highly advanced adaptive suspension unit that monitors all four wheels on a car. Based on the quality of the road and the preferred setting by the rider all four wheels are controlled individually to maintain the optimal suspension setup.
Use of the CES valve in a shock absorber removes most of the compromise between ride and handling found in conventional shocks. It enables the suspension to provide sportscar characteristics in cornering and lane changes while giving the ride of a limousine during cruising.
Öhlins has been active in semi-active suspension development since the late eighties. We have built in-depth knowledge about the valves, shocks, sensors, ECUs and software required to make semi-active suspension work. With our knowledge we can not only supply the valves but also the support required to build a full system.
Today the CES technology is used by several car manufacturers such as BMW, Daimler, VW, and Volvo.
