Ohlins shocks earned their stripes as the best. Not marketing but quality. I will pay more for the best which is why I bought the upgraded Mulit with Ohlins.

Bling is all style no substance, can't say that about Ohlins. They do carry the brand reputation that is what you think of as bling but bling is all surface appeal like a rhinestone. Ohlins, Brembo, Akrapovik, and other brands have qualities that attracts extroverts who generally like to show off.
