By launching the new KW Variant 5 coilover suspension, KW focuses on its successful motorsport suspension technology with KW Solid Piston Technology and modular design with damper valves connected in series. The KW Variant 5 assures precise and fast damping without delay in sports cars and super sports cars. The shock absorbers and valves react directly, even with small spring travel, minimal steering movements, and minor road undulations. Every driving maneuver and every input, such as those generated during braking, acceleration, steering, load changes, and undulations, are damped much more precisely. The KW Solid Piston dampers provide much more platform support to the chassis than conventional dampers and thus, depending on the vehicle body allow for lower spring rates to be used.
Setup – factory pre-configured damping setup with separate 4-way damper setting 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 values: more sensitive damping, cavitation-free function, precise high-frequency damping, low-pressure gas range from 6 to 10 bar and low hysteresis.
