Revolutionary damper technology for the road
KW SOLID PISTON TECHNOLOGY
Function follows form as the KW V5's utilize KW's Solid Piston Technology bred from GT3 motorsports - delivering zero cavitation and instant damping. This delivers more direct steering and superior driving dynamics over the stock suspension without compromising overall ride comfort.
4-WAY Adjustable Damping
KW took the Variant 5 coilover to a whole new level with high speed and low speed tunability. High speed refers to suspension travel and events that the coilover itself experiences very quickly such as a sharp corner or a hard launch from a stop. Low speed events refer to suspension movements that happen at a slower, more gradual pace such as large sweeping corners or gradual acceleration.
Having the ability to adjust high and low speed suspension dampening independently gives you unprecedented handling, performance, and control. This means every acceleration, steering movement, or braking event is tunable and precise.
The damping setup recommended for the Lamborghini Huracán (724) can be adjusted directly on the damper independently in the low-speed and high-speed ranges of the compression and rebound with 13 clicks each.
If the rebound stage opens, the ride comfort will increase. When the rebound valve is closed, body pitch and roll are reduced accordingly. Handling becomes even more direct over the stock suspension setup.
The rebound stage also has a direct influence on the springs. In addition, the compression damping allows further influence to be applied on the steering behavior, grip level and rolling comfort.
In more simple terms, it is the task of the rebound stage to connect the body to the road and to influence the rebound, while the compression stage supports the compression. In addition, the compression stage also supports the body structure.
Due to the displacement principle, the KW coilover suspension Variant 5 provides much better support for the entire body structure. As a result, perfect damping is achieved even with low suspension travel.
In addition to the adjustable dampers, the KW coilover Variant 5 also allows the low center of gravity of the Lamborghini Huracán to be lowered continuously. 10 to 25 millimeters are possible at the front axle and 15 to 35 millimeters at the rear axle.
