KW Coilovers Variant 1
The KW coilover kit Variant 1 “inox-line” is the ideal entry-level system for customers who want the technically lowest possible suspension setting or for those who want to customise their own. In extensive road tests, our experienced engineers developed a target group - specific setup by establishing an optimum balance of sportiness, comfort and safety and then implementing this in the series.
Setup – factory-set pre-configured damping setup
The Variant 1 "inox-line" has a vehicle-specific, fix configured damping setup with a sporty and harmonious adjustment, which allows you to experience an optimal balance of sportiness and everyday practicality. Even with full payload and maximum axle loads, the dampers always work with a sporty characteristic.
The KW Variant 1 allows a maximum or individual lowering within the tested adjustment range. Due to the dirt-resistant trapezoidal thread and the polyamide threaded ring, the continuous lowering can be varied quickly and easily, even after years.
The benchmark for coilovers
As with all KW coilovers, the engineers at KW develop in extensive test cycles on the Nürburgring Nordschleife and in our test center on the KW 7-post rig the vehicle-specific KW damper setup estimated by car enthusiasts worldwide. So you will experience your car even more directly and dynamically with a KW coilover kit.
After all, you do not buy just any coilover kit, but a KW coilover kit that has been especially developed and adapted for your vehicle type. KW as manufacturer exclusively uses own resources, high-quality components and the same damper technology as high-volume manufacturers. With the KW coilover suspension Variant 1 “inox-line”, the roll and pitch movements of the vehicle body are reduced during compression, so you benefit from an unadulterated directness and a sportier handling while driving.
