KW V5 Clubsport Coilovers: The new 4-way damping adjustable KW V5 Clubsport offers the latest KW Solid Piston GT3 motorsport suspension technology for the sportiest road vehicles with sports tire setup for use on the racetrack and on the road. The entire suspension design of the KW V5 Clubsport coilover kit with its uniball bearings is designed for the use of semi-slick tires.
KW Solid Piston Technology for race track and street In contrast to dampers with traditional orifice type pistons, KW uses its KW Solid Piston Technology (a displacement piston structure), which has been tried and tested in motorsport and is homologated in vehicles such as the BMW M4 GT3 and Porsche 911 GT3 R, for the KW V5 Clubsport coilover kit. The compression and rebound valves, which can be adjusted separately in the low-speed and high-speed forces, are arranged separately from the damper inner tube and the piston rod. As a result, the KW V5 Clubsport 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 benefits:
- more sensitive and high-frequency damping - cavitation-free function - low-pressure gas range from 6 to 10 bar - Unique, independently acting damping force adjustment - Compression and rebound damping freely adjustable damping technology - Adjustable low-speed compression damping with 13 precise clicks - Adjustable high-speed compression damping with 13 precise clicks - Adjustable low-speed rebound damping with 13 precise clicks - Adjustable high-speed rebound damping with 13 precise Clicks - seamless lowering - tested adjustment range - aluminum Unibal support bearing - parts certificate - high-quality components for a long service life
The body structure remains perfectly supported during aggressive steering maneuvers and extreme compression. Thanks to the adjustable multi-valve technology, the KW V5 Clubsport dampens bumps and relatively large transverse joints effortlessly. Even when cutting FIA curbs, close-to-production sports cars remain safely controllable with the KW V5 Clubsport coilover kit. The height adjustment options allow the wheel loads to be adjusted. The adjustment options, combined with the separately adjustable compression and rebound damping technology (SPCLH-A and SPRLH-A technology), enable individual setups to suit the vehicle weight, the tire characteristics,
Setup: Area of application and damper tuning The KW V5 Clubsport coilover kit with its KW Solid Piston Technology is the ideal upgrade to drive near-series sports cars safely and quickly with semi-slick tires on track days and tourist drives on racetracks. Thanks to the parts certificate, the KW V5 Clubsport can also be used in everyday life on public roads.
