The race programme KW Competition has been developed for national and international motor sports. Today, KW Competition is successfully used by various race teams on many race tracks around the world. Our motor sports department has own structures and therefore it is possible to form a special team who can then meet the high and quickly changing requirements of the customers in a flexible and target-oriented way.
Racing shock absorbers, complete solution, 2-way adjustable: KW Competition 2A
Our two-way adjustable racing shock absorbers are based on the twin tube damping principle. The rebound- and compression forces can be adjusted separately, each at the end of the piston rod or at the casing floor. This damping system allows to equip racing cars, own constructions, exotic cars, kit cars or classic cars with a custom-made and high-quality damping system. Due to construction-related reasons, an assembly up to a damping angle of 45° is possible, where as the damper casing always has to point downwards. More angle is possible with a horizontal assembly. Please note your design needs when ordering, then we can finish the damper accordingly.
Racing shock absorbers, complete solution, 3-way adjustable: KW Competition 3A
Our 3-way adjustable race shock absorbers consist of Mono tube dampers with a separate remote canister for dampening adjustment. The damper has been developed for professional motor sports use. We offer solutions for nearly every use: circuit, slalom, mountain, rally, cross, formula cars. Nearly any application situation is possible. The free assembly and attachment of the equalising tank makes this possible.
The KW Suspensions program has been developed in addition to the famous KW coilover programme. The aim of this programme is to use the existing resources, the know-how from motorsport, the direct access to high-quality materials and perfect organised industrial production for conversion of car specific sport suspension kits. KW also would like to achieve visual and driving dynamical improvements, meet OEM quality and offer a superb price/performance ratio.

KW quad suspension
The market for “All Terrain Vehicles” (ATV) and quads has been grown very fast in the last few years. The biggest danger of a quad on the road is the high center of gravity in combination with a higher level of grip than in off-road use. When using KW quad suspension, the center of gravity is lowered and increases importantly the passive safety including a better look and optimum performance.
