Track performance proven technology with multiple 24-hour race wins.
Using the Nordschleife as the testing grounds and data collected from our KW 7-post Driving Dynamic Test Center, KW developed it's 3-way Clubsport coilover kit. Wheel loads, vehicle weight and chassis reinforcements (increased body stiffness) can all be taken into consideration with the TVR-A & TVCLH-A valve technology and adjustment capabilities of the 3-way Clubsport. Similar to KW Competition 3-way coilovers, low-speed and high-speed compression adjustment is achieved by utilizing with the controls on the external reservoir.
Specifically Engineered Setup – Vehicle specific with independently adjustable rebound, high and low speed compression.
Similar to the KW Competition suspension used in international motorsports, the KW 3-Way Clubsport coilover kit allows fine tuning of the compression damping separately in the low-speed and high-speed range. The click adjustments of the TVCLH-A valve technology make for easy adjustment directly on the reservoir. You can modify the low-speed compression damping with 6 precise clicks with the purple low speed adjustment dial and directly beneath it the golden adjustment wheel provides an additional 14 precise clicks of high speed compression adjustment. In addition, the TVR-A technology provides 16 clicks to noticeably adjust the rebound damping independently of the compression damping. If you would like to adjust the KW 3-Way Clubsport coilover kit it can easily be adjusted for more comfort or to an alternative setup for a new race track. The KW 3-Way Clubsport benefits from the same motorsports technology that has proven its endurance with multiple overall wins at the ADAC Zurich 24h Nürburgring race.
The two-stage, patented TVR-A (Twin Valve Rebound - Adjustable) technology enables a small volume of oil to flow through an adjustable, conically shaped, low-speed bypass during low damper speeds, while in the case of higher damper speeds, the main rebound stage valve opens allowing a larger volumn of oil to flow. This provides a big improvement in terms of ride comfort without influencing the safety-relevant high-speed range. There are 16 precise clicks available for individual settings, so you can choose between more comfort or more body control.
With 12 precise clicks, the KW 2-Way Clubsport coilovers utilize TVC-A (Twin Valve Compression - Adjustable) technology and can increase or decrease the flow of valve to achieve either more or less low speed compression damping. During sudden high speed impulses the spring loaded needle valve and the spring loaded main valve open to their maximum valve cross section, acting as a digressive blow-off characteristic to avoid transmitting undesired forces through the suspension into the chassis. This provides a better platform for the vehicle body and at the same time offers more comfort than with conventional valve technology during high wheel acceleration. The dampers come preset to our baseline shock settings right out of the box providing an optimal starting place for your car while providing a wide adjustment window for true performance optimization.
Continuous Ride Height Adjustment
With KW 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 coilovers our engineers develop vehicle specific damper and spring specifications which undergo comprehensive testing on the Nürburgring Nordschleife and in our KW 7-post Driving Dynamic Test Center. With a KW Clubsport coilover kit the driving experience is more dynamic and direct.
You are not buying a mass produced, generic coilover kit, a KW coilover has been developed specifically for your particular vehicle. As a manufacturer, KW uses only its own resources, high quality components and the damper technology that has all developed in-house. With the KW Clubsport coilovers, rolling motion of the body will be reduced during compression giving you the benefit of more direct handling and confidence while driving.
3 Way Adjustable Rebound and Compression
For the new 3-way KW Clubsport coilover suspension, KW has designed special racing dampers with expansion reservoirs. Thanks to the precise adjustment settings, the compression force in the high and low speed range can be easily adjusted independently of one another on the patented two way valve, which is installed in the separate reservoir. The low speed compression damping can be finely adjusted within seven positions and the high speed compression damping offers an adjustment range of 14 clicks.
Driveability can be significantly influenced by the compression adjustment. For example, a harder low speed setting causes directer steering behaviour on the front axle and can counteract the oversteer on the rear axle without negatively effecting the deflection behaviour of the high speed damping range, for instance, when encountering curbs and bumps.
The adjustable rebound valve in the working piston can be reached by an ergonomically shaped rebound adjustment dial which can be comfortably operated from the engine compartment. The rebound force can be finely trimmed for optimal use with 18 clicks. Using little power it offers more comfort, for example, for driving to the race track where it can be increased without effort to improve handling and steering precision, in particular at high velocities.
KW Clubsport 3-way Adjustable Damping
A “racing valve technology” like Manthey’s 24 hour race Porsche winner for road use – that was the task for the KW engineers. The outcome was a KW coilover suspension which also fulfils the high demands of the race track and includes a TÜV report for road use.
Nothing was left to chance with tuning and, like the 24 hour race victor, Manthey Racing, the in-house seven post test rig was used for its development. Matching the road-approved Dunlop Direzza sports tyres, the damper and spring rates of the new 3-way KW Clubsport suspension were perfectly adapted to the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
In addition, camber adjustable spherical bearing top mounts are pre-assembled, enabling optimal setups in combination with the adjustable KW Clubsport dampers for other sport tyres and race tracks.
Maintenance-free components, a sophisticated dust protection system especially for strut housings and the combination of the KW inox-line stainless steel strut housing with McPherson axles and aluminium housings where possible guarantee that all parts are tested and approved according to the standards of the car industry for all year road use.
