KW Variant 3: Unlimited individuality for performance & comfort.
Damping forces can be adjustment separately in rebound & compression.

Advanced technology from motor sport
The patented KW-valve technology for separate adjustment of rebound and compression damping allows you to individually setup your suspension.The adjustable KW bottom valve adjusts the low-speed range of the compression level in twelve clicks.With the KW coilovers Variant 3 inox-line you will get much more than just a sporty lowering and excellent driving behaviour on all roads. It is based on our long experience as a suspension manufacturer and supplier for international motor sport, such as the touring car series ADAC GT Masters, FIA GT1, FIA GT3, International GT Open, WTC, VLN and the legendary ADAC Zurich 24h-race Nurburgring.By increasing the rebound force via the adjustment wheel body movements are reduced. You will have more stability during high speed cornering. If you change for example the wheel / tire combination (approved by the car manufacturer) to larger wheels, then with a KW coilover Variant 3 inox-line you will be able to adjust the car's handling perfectly.Print product description

Cutting-edge motorsports technology for more performance on the road. With independently adjustable compression and rebound damping the Variant 3 damper setup can be tuned to your own driving preferences or vehicle modifications such as weight, tire characteristics or additional chassis bracing. True performance optimization is only possible with this unique, patented system. For example, the compression damping force can be increased to optimize grip from the tires, or improve cornering behavior and reduce squat without influencing the rebound damping characteristics that are optimally tuned to the spring rate.

The KW Variant 3 inox-line coilover kit is the ideal tool for performance-oriented drivers and experienced tuning enthusiasts who place a strong emphasis on the overall performance of their suspension. The Variant 3 features patented TVR-A and TVC-A technology that provides separately adjustable rebound and compression damping. The extensive adjustment range of the independently configurable rebound and compression make it easy to directly influence the steering behavior, directional stability, grip and handling characteristics for confident and repeatable results at the limit of driving dynamics.

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 Variant 3 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.

With KW Variant 3 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.

As with all KW coilovers our engineers develop vehicle specific damper and spring specifications which undergo comprehensive testing on the Nurburgring Nordschleife and in our KW 7-post Driving Dynamic Test Center. With a KW Variant 3 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 Variant 3 inox-line coilovers, rolling motion of the body will be reduced during compression giving you the benefit of more direct handling and confidence while driving.

For over 20 years, KW automotive has been the market leader and driving innovation as a manufacturer of individual suspension solutions for the road and in all types of motorsports. No matter where in the world, gearheads, automobile manufacturers and reputable tuners rely on our KW coilovers Made in Germany. Every KW coilover kit undergoes extensive stress testing before production and is developed and manufactured exclusively in our company headquarters in Fichtenberg, a small in town in Germany, to meet the high standards of our KW quality management. For us as a German manufacturer, it goes without saying that our KW coilover kits will exceed the original equipment manufacturer quality, and offer useful and innovative solutions.

About KW Suspension

History and information about KW Suspension and their products.

As a an enthusiastic car owner you already know that your car’s suspension system is a multiplicity of things including the tires, tire air, springs, shock absorbers, struts, anti-sway bars and linkages and that the job of the suspension system is to support road handling as well as ride quality. In order to accomplish these goals you need a suspension system that accomplishes the task of keeping your car’s wheels on the road where they belong, smoothing out your ride, keeping your car under your control and protecting your car by limiting the impact of unfavorable road conditions. As an extra bonus the right suspension system can provide a more comfortable ride for you and your passengers and can protect cargo you may be carrying. So needless to say you do not want a suspension system that has worn components but you might also want an aftermarket suspension component that helps to enhance your car’s performance. And it goes without saying that you want to buy these parts from a manufacturer you can feel confident will give you a dependable and state of the art product and KW automotive is just such a company and their illustrious history and proven successes will lead you to agree.

Although KW automotive was started as a small company in 1992 it quickly grew through innovations like the KW coilover suspension born in 1996 and they have been on a forward track ever since. One can only conclude that this is due to their desire to offer you only the best and to do what it takes to make that happen.

A prime example of that is their development of an avant-garde test facility in 2006, a 7-post drive dynamics test facility able to simulate a disparity of race track conditions and one of only 15 such facilities around the world with the majority of these used by Formula 1 teams. So you can see how dedicated KW is to making the best possible product and with this kind of technology KW is afforded phenomenal opportunities to test applications for both the automotive and motorsports industry.

This desire is what led to the development of its brand new impressive dampening system known as the “Variant 3” with its patented double adjustable technology and “inox-line” that can be tuned to the driver’s preferences or vehicle modifications. This unique design offers you the ability to increase compression damping force in order to optimize grip from the tires, improve cornering behavior and reduce squat without affecting the rebound damping characteristics

But being content with what they have already accomplished is not the way of KW and for this reason KW introduced the first suspension control unit for vehicles with standard air suspension that can be continually lowered by use of a smartphone application. KW has accomplished what few in the industry have been able to do and that is to offer its customers a preeminent suspension program that includes an outstanding array of products ranging from springs over sports suspensions to coilover suspensions. It is no wonder KW suspension successfully entered the motorsports arena and can boast that their products are used by racing teams worldwide.

All of the aforementioned accomplishments and others are why KW can proudly tout that they are represented worldwide, and now employ in the neighborhood of two hundred people in as many as five locations and that their headquarters in Fichtenberg, Germany is an impressive 247,500 square feet.
