KW Variant 5 Gewindefahrwerk

KW Coilovers Variant 5

Ultra high performance technology (KW Solid Piston Technology) bred from GT3 motorsports. KW 4-way independently adjustable damper technology.



KW coilovers, height-adjustable spring sets and KW DLC AirSuspensions enable a stepless lowering within the scope of the tested parts certificate

 …more

The height-adjustable spring plate is made of a resistant and friction-optimized polyamide composite material with a stainless steel insert.

 …more

The perfect height adjustment thread

In contrast to ordinary threads, KW uses a friction-optimized and dirt-resistant trapezoidal thread

 …more.

The only really permanent corrosion resistance

The suspension struts of the KW coilovers are made of high quality stainless steel and are therefore rust-free.

 …more

The use of the KW expansion tank enables additional volume for more oil and more cooling surface for systems that are particularly stressed.

 …more.

Testing like in Formula 1

On the in-house 7Post vehicle dynamics test bench from KW, the KW coilovers are optimally coordinated depending on the design and target group.

 …more

The parts certificate, which describes the individual lowering options in connection with the respective vehicle, is always included in the scope of delivery.

 …more

Aluminum unibal support bearing / adjustable

Depending on the vehicle type, the aluminum unibal support bearings have a scalable camber setting and can optionally also be adjusted in the wake. This allows the camber angle to be adjusted so that the maximum tire contact area is achieved when cornering and handling is even more direct.

 …more

Hydraulic lifting

With the KW hydraulic lift system (HLS for short), the body can be raised at the push of a button for more ground clearance, even while driving. Obstacles such as speed bumps or steep parking garage ramps can be easily overcome thanks to HLS from KW.

With the new KW coilover kit Variant 5, KW relies on its successful motorsport suspension technology with displacement pistons (KW Solid Piston Technology) and modular and series-connected damper valves. Variant 5 impresses in sports cars and super sports cars with precise and fast damping without delay. Even with short suspension travel, steering movements and minimal uneven road surfaces, the dampers and valves react directly. Every driving maneuver and every impulse, such as those caused by braking, accelerating, steering, load changes and bumps, are dampened much more precisely. The displacement piston dampers support the vehicle structure more optimally than conventional dampers and so, depending on the vehicle structure, lower spring rates can also be used.





Setup - factory pre-configured damping setup with separate 4-way damper setting

In contrast to vibration dampers with overflowing working pistons, with KW coilovers and KW dampers with displacement piston structure (KW Solid Piston Technology) we use a valve arrangement that is separate from the inner damper tube and piston rod.

As a result, the KW Variant 5 with adjustable KW SPCLH-A (KW Solid Piston Compression Low- and Highspeed Adjustable) compression damping and the KW SPRLH-A (KW Solid Piston Rebound Low- and Highspeed Adjustable) rebound damping offers significant added value: more sensitive damping, cavitation-free function , high-frequency damping, low-pressure gas range from 6 to 10 bar and low hysteresis.

The low and high-speed valve units in the KW coilover kit variant 5, which are built in series with different valve spring types and main valves, offer the freedom to individually adjust the compression and rebound damping with 13 exact clicks each (14 characteristic curves) in the low-speed and high-speed range. The KW displacement technology (KW Solid Piston Technology) can also cover a large force range in the design of the characteristic curve; in order to enable a completely new kind of harmonic damping.





Stepless lowering

The KW variant 5 enables a maximum or individual lowering in the tested setting range. Thanks to the dirt-resistant trapezoidal thread and the polyamide threaded ring, the stepless lowering can be varied quickly and easily, even after years.





The benchmark for coilovers

As with all KW coilovers, KW engineers develop the vehicle-specific KW damper tuning, valued by car enthusiasts worldwide, in extensive test cycles on the Nürburgring Nordschleife and in our test center on the KW 7-post vehicle dynamics test bench. Experience your car more directly and dynamically with a KW coilover kit.





After all, you are not buying just any coilover kit, but a KW coilover kit that has been specially developed and tuned for your vehicle type. As a manufacturer, KW only uses its own resources, high-quality components and the same damper technology as large-scale manufacturers. With the KW coilover kit variant 5, the rolling and pitching movements of the vehicle body are reduced during compression, so you benefit from an unadulterated directness and sportier handling when driving.



Our experience for your driving pleasure
