Sport Handling with adjustable rebound damping

This system intended for the experienced driver who does not only wish to determine the individual lowering of his vehicle, but also wishes to carry out setup adjustments. The adjustable rebound damper allows adjusting the pitch and roll behaviour of the vehicle and therefore the driving pleasure can be adapted to the own requirements.

  • Damping technology with individually adjustable rebound
  • inox-line* stainless steel technology
  • Individually height adjustable
  • Adjustment parameters approved by the German Technical Control Board (TÜV)
  • Fully finished complete solution
  • High-quality components for long durability
  • Comprehensive documentation for easy use

Rebound damping

The rebound adjustment can be installed via an adjustment spindle at the piston rod end, as far as it is vehicle-specifically possible.
The rebound damping primarily controls pitch and roll of the vehicle, especially in the low speed damping range which directly influences handling and comfort.
Therefore vehicle can be adjusted to the needs of the driver, making the ride variable from comfortable to sporty and stiff, both with improved road handling.

KW valve technology

For each vehicle class and for every operational use, KW offers the optimal adjusted suspension, from comfortable, to sporty or performance-oriented.
This demanding objective can only be achieved with the innovative, patented KW technology with an individually adjustable rebound- and compression damping. For this reason, we base our damping developments on twin-tube technology.
With our 2-way pressure valve technology two, basically incompatible characteristics – dynamics & driving comfort – can be uniquely combined.
Our Variant 3 allows adjusting the rebound damping forces completely separately from the compression adjustment. This allows optimal amount of traction to the road if so required.
The determining factor for the overall adjustment is the fact that the compression- and rebound forces have no relation to each other – in other words: an alteration of the compression damping does not necessarily also involve an alteration of the rebound damping.

Our modular sealing system surpasses the usual OEM standards.
It can be easily opened due to its aluminium bolting and therefore allows a later, custom-made adjustment of the valve technology or the deviation ratio.

Valve technology traction stage
ventiltechnik5.jpg

Oil flow during closed traction stage

  • Bypass duct in the traction stage adjustment is closed
  • Declining increase of the characteristic line and the maximally possible traction damping is achieved
  • The damping is carried out by the setup-specific preset spring valve at the piston.


Result:

A sporty and tense adjustment of the traction stage prevents rolling and pitching while braking and accelerating.

Oil flow during open traction stage

  • Bypass duct in the traction stage adjustment is open
  • Progressive increase of the characteristic line and the minimally possible traction damping is achieved
  • The bypass oil amount (black arrow) is not available anymore for the spring valve at the piston and the damping forces are therefore reduced.

Result:
A lower rebound damping improves the driving comfort.

Valve technology compression stage

Position of the bypass valve with increasing piston rod velocity

  • During slow piston rod velocity (black arrows), the oil flows over the bypass valve
  • the maximum compression damping (white arrows) is carried out via the spring-loaded piston valve
  • the closed compression stage creates a progressive characteristic line of compression damping

Result:
A sporty and tense adjustment of the compression stage prevents the vehicle from rolling in curves.

Position of the bypass valve with increasing piston rod velocity

  • During slow piston rod velocities (black arrows), the oil flows over the bypass valve
  • The maximum compression damping (white arrows) is carried out by the spring-loaded piston valve
  • By the opened bypass valve, a declining characteristic line of the compression damping in the low-speed range is achieved

Result:
The (safety-relevant) support of the vehicle in the high-speed range of the damping is not influenced during an opened or closed compression stage and is therefore always ensured
