uVariant 3 race technology for the road with adjustable compression and rebound damping.
The new Variant 3 is state-of-the-art technology for the skilled and experienced driver.
The separate and independent compression and rebound damping options allow a truly individual driving set-up. These unique systems with the 3 individually adjustable components, allows for adjustment of the compression of the damper in the low-speed range, while the highspeed set-up, so decisive for driving comfort, has been preset by our engineers.
• Independently adjustable damping technology -rebound and compression damping
• inox-line stainless steel technology at no extra charge
• Individual height adjustment
• German TUEV-tested adjustment parameters
• High-quality components for long life
• Comprehensive documentation for ease of use
• Infinitely adjustable rebound damping
• 14- level adjustable compression damping
• Unique, independently functioning damping power adjustment
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 behaviour 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.
This kit offers the following lowering potential for the AMG SLK55 (suitable for the SLK55 only):
