Quality wise, the Ohlins R&T will be higher than the AST 5100. Both are inverted fronts, but the Ohlins has the DFV, where you will only find AST 5150(not yet released) with similar technology.

Ohlins will both ride better on the street and perform better on the track than the AST 5100. AST will be better positioned to compete with the release of the 5150 series.
