Presentation of the KW Suspensions brand

Founded in 1995 by Klaus Wohlfarth, KW has rapidly established itself as a benchmark in automotive suspension. Its headquarters are located in Fichtenberg, a small town in Germany, where the various components of its suspension systems are also produced.

For more than two decades, this German company has been a benchmark in its field, offering innovative, high-performance products for competition vehicles and everyday cars alike.

The company's policy is based on three main pillars:

  • Constant innovation: KW regularly invests in research and development to improve its existing products and create new, innovative suspension solutions;
  • Impeccable quality: All KW components and systems are designed and manufactured in Germany, guaranteeing optimum quality and exemplary durability;

  • Customer satisfaction: The company prides itself on providing a responsive and personalised customer service, to ensure the best possible buying and user experience

Over the years, KW has developed a complete range of products, from simple anti-jamming bars to fully adjustable suspensions that can be fitted to different car models.

The history of the brand

KW was founded in 1995 following a simple observation by Klaus Wohlfarth: quality suspension solutions were not very common on the European market. The businessman decided to set up his own company and began manufacturing top-of-the-range suspension products.

The company quickly became a huge success thanks to the quality and performance of its products. Word of mouth worked well, enabling the young company to gain a higher profile among motor sport professionals.

In 2001, the company moved to new premises in Fichtenberg to cope with growing demand.

Always on the lookout for new ideas and solutions, KW also acquired several competing brands over the years, including Belltech, ST Suspensions and LSD Doors. These acquisitions have enabled the company to diversify its offering and incorporate new technologies into its products.

Recognition in the world of motor sport

Beyond the traditional road car market, KW has rapidly made a name for itself in the world of motor sports. The company is a partner of numerous competition teams, from Formula 1 to drag racing.

KW suspensions can be found on the vehicles of many prestigious teams, including Audi Sport, BMW Motorsport and AMG-Mercedes. This close collaboration with the racing world means that KW benefits from invaluable feedback to constantly improve its products and offer increasingly high-performance suspensions adapted to the specific needs of professional drivers.

KW's flagship suspension models

Depending on customer needs and preferences, KW offers several types of suspension, some of which are particularly popular:

  • KW Variant 1: This is a height-adjustable suspension designed to offer an ideal compromise between comfort and sportiness. It is particularly suitable for drivers who want to lower their car without sacrificing driving comfort

  • KW Variant 2: This model allows you to adjust not only the height of the suspension, but also the rebound of the shock absorbers. This gives you a personalised setting to suit your driving style and road conditions

  • KW Variant 3: Taking customisation a step further, this suspension also offers damper compression adjustment. It's ideal for demanding drivers who want maximum control over their vehicle's performance

Research & development!

Technological innovations: The iVSD

As part of its drive for continuous improvement, KW has also developed iVSD (intelligent Valve Suspension Damping), an electromagnetic valve system that automatically adjusts suspension parameters according to road conditions and the selected driving mode. This innovation further enhances the comfort and performance of its suspension, offering optimum control on all types of terrain.
