KW V5 Clubsport Coilovers
Offering uncompromising track performance with motorsport technology for production-based and street-legal club sports cars with sports tire setups.
The new 4-way adjustable KW V5 Clubsport coilover offers state-of-the-art GT3 motorsport technology for the sportiest street cars with sport tire setups for track and street use. The complete suspension design of the KW V5 Clubsport coilover suspension with its unibal bearings on the front axle, racing springs, inverted-MacPherson struts (Upside-Down struts), and rear axle dampers are designed for use with semi-slick tires on production-based vehicles. During aggressive steering maneuvers and extreme compression at various racetrack sectors, the vehicle body remains perfectly supported. Through the adjustable multi-valve technology, the KW V5 Clubsport dampens bumps and relatively large transverse joints precisely. When attacking curbs, near-standard sports cars remain safely controllable with the KW V5 Clubsport coilover suspension.
KW V5 Clubsport offers the option of further tuning the driving behavior separately in four parameters low-speed rebound, low-speed compression, high-speed rebound and high-speed compression (SPCLH-A & SPRLH-A Technology). The damping of each valve can be adjusted with just 13 clicks, so that the damping can be tailored precisely to the individual driving needs. When the rebound stage is opened, ride comfort is enhanced. When the rebound valve is closed, the body’s pitching and rolling movements are significantly reduced. Handling becomes even more dynamic than in series production. The compression stage enables further influence on steering behavior, grip level and rolling comfort. Put simply, the task of the rebound stage is to connect the chassis to the road, while the compression stage impacts the compression and supports the vehicle body.
Setup - factory pre-configured damping setup with separate 4-way damper setting
Unlike shock absorbers with overflowing pistons, we separate the valves from the damper inner tube and piston rod in our KW coilovers and KW dampers with KW Solid Piston Technology.
KW SPRLH-A rebound damping
KW SPCLH-A compression damping
Thus, 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 added values: more sensitive damping, cavitation-free function, precise 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 Variant 5 coilover suspension, 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 (14 characteristic curves) each in the low- and high-speed range. The KW Solid Piston Technology can also be used to cover a large force range when designing the characteristic curves; all the more reason to enable a completely new type of harmonious damping.
Continuous Ride Height Adjustment
With KW V5 Clubsport coilovers you can achieve maximum lowering within an approved lowering range that ensures a proper functioning suspension with adequate travel after your car is lowered. Even after years of use you can easily adjust the ride height thanks to the dirt resistant trapezoid thread and composite adjustment collar.
The benchmark for coilovers
As with all KW Coilover kits, KW engineers develop the vehicle-specific KW damper tuning, through extensive test cycles on the Nürburgring Nordschleife and our test center on the KW 7-post vehicle dynamics test bench, which is appreciated by car enthusiasts worldwide. With a KW Coilover suspension, you will experience your car more directly and dynamically. This also applies to the new KW Leveling suspensions.
