KW Coilovers Variant 2
The KW coilover kit Variant 2 “inox-line” is the suspension kit for the accomplished sports driver who wants a customized vehicle lowering with the ability to make adjustments in setup. The individually adjustable rebound stage damping ensures a better connection on fast road sections and an easier vehicle control. The driving comfort on poor road surfaces can significantly be influenced with a customized rebound stage damping.
Setup – factory-set pre-configured damper setup with adjustable rebound damping
With the KW coilovers Variant 2 “inox-line”, you as an accomplished sports driver can take influence on the handling and comfort with the rebound damping (“TVR-A”-technology) that is adjustable in 16 clicks. This allows you to set the KW dampers tighter or more comfortable, without affecting the bottom valve of the compression stage. TVR-A rebound stage damping (Twin Valve Rebound – Adjustable): The two-step, patented “TVR-A” technology enables the small volume to flow through an adjustable, conical low-speed bypass in the case of slow damper speeds, while in the case of higher piston speeds, the main rebound stage valve opens for the large volume flows. This provides a big improvement in terms of ride comfort without influencing the high-speed in the safety-relevant range. There are 16 precise clicks available for individual settings, so you can choose between more comfort or more body control.
The KW Variant 2 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 the 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 resources, high-quality components and the same damper technology as high-volume manufacturers. With the KW coilover suspension Variant 2 “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.
