KW Clubsport -
Performance for racetrack & road
KW Clubsport was developed for customers, who demand a better handling car when participating in track day events, but also require an offi cial road approval to use their car every day. The setup was specifi cally designed for the Nordschleife using track day tyres. By using the optional available adjustable top mounts, the suspension geometry can be adjusted to the requirements of tires and the intended use. The mentioned adjustment options combined with the independently adjustable rebound and compression damping technology allow individual setup adjustments according to the vehicle load, tyre characteristics and different track conditions. KW Clubsport meets every demand regarding a coilover for the usage on the road and the race track.
KW Clubsport suspension kits are independently adjustable in compression and rebound forces and include high performance racing springs. Racing top mounts are optionally available for further performance. KW Clubsport guarantees excellent handling, best performance, highest agility and fantastic lap times.

Compression and Rebound Adjustment
As far it is vehicle-specifically possible, the rebound damping is adjusted by a spindle at the end of the piston rod. Mainly, the traction phase (rebound) controls car body vibrations and also influences handling and comfort in the low-speed damping range. By using the traction phase adjustment, the vehicle can be adapted to the requirements of the driver. Moreover the driving behavior can be regulated from comfortably rolling to sporty and tense with improved road holding characteristics.
The compression phase adjustment is carried out at the lower end of the shock absorber via our patented multi-purpose valve. The large number of pre-set parameters of this valve allows for a wide range of adjustment for individual use. The unique low-speed compression adjustment significantly distinguishes this technology from any other. In this compression range, the driving behavior of the vehicle is drastically influenced. An increase of the damping power supports the vehicle already during compression and therefore avoids rolling and pitching. The directional stability is significantly improved.

Aluminium unibal top mount
Adjustable top mounts are made from high grade aluminium and are included in the application when a technical advantage can be achieved. A special gasket system prevents the intrusion of dirt and moisture into the free-from-play pre-stressed uniball-bearings and therefore prevents corrosion and wear.
- Scaled camber adjustment (optionally also caster)
- Sealed, pre-stressed uniball-bearing in stress direction
- Made of tool steel (100Cr6); 58 to 64 HRC – hard chrome plated,
- PTFE lubricant, stainless steel outer ring (X200Cr13)
- Axial bearing as balance on McPherson struts

High-performance racing springs
The new KW high-performance springs are produced from specially alloyed and tempered spring steel, and the increased resilience of the material enables new spring designs with reduced spring thickness. This makes the springs up to 30% more efficient than conventional racing springs. With the same overall length this means:
- more suspension travel
- higher block loading
- lower weight
Further weight reduction can be achieved by shortening the overall length of the springs and adjusting the necessary block loading.
- shorter overall spring length
- improved freedom of wheel movement
- further weight reduction
KW anti-sway bars
Give your KW clubsport coilover the finishing touch with KW anti-sway bars. Manufactured in Germany.
The KW anti-sway bar enables fine tuning of the handling characteristics of your vehicle. It reduces the body roll of the vehicle and provides increased stability. The result: improved handling and increased grip during any driving manoeuvres. KW anti-sway bars are manufactured from drop-forged heavy-duty aircraft steel for high-precision performance and covered with a durable powdercoat finish. Kits include mounting hardware and an easly to comprehend instruction manual.
- Reduction of body roll during cornering and aggressive manoeuvres
- No reduction in damping comfort during compression on both sides
- Reduction of load differences between the inner- and outer wheel when driving bends
- Positive impact on the under- or over-steering tendencies (roll steer effect)
