CFD developed, hand made, all carbon fiber uprights and element. This wing and upright combination is the highest downforce producing wing we offer. It must be chassis mounted to withstand the loads it is capable of producing.
The lightweight, strong, and extremely aerodynamic uprights place the wing far back on the car (10″ behind the bumper in most cases.) This helps to minimize drag, while maximizing downforce. Swan neck mounting (mounting above the element) is the most efficient means of attaching a wing to a car. This means greater downforce for a given wing size and reduced drag when compared to traditional under-wing mounting.
See the following CFD comparisons which show how the traditional upright mounting disrupts the airflow on the bottom side of the element, creating a loss of downforce.
Airfoil Element Overview:
Klaus Composites V1 GT is a high-camber single element, constant cross-section wing element designed for use on 250-500 horsepower GT cars with moderate front aerodynamic modifications. Its thickness and rounded leading edge make it exceptionally tunable, able to run at a wide range of attack angles with minimal drag.
- High camber profile; ~450 lb. of downforce at 155 mph*
- 66” standard length with 12” chord.
- Black anodized aluminum uprights mounts integrated into airfoil
- Integrated gurney
- 2×2 twill weave fabric; UV-stable high-gloss urethane clear coat; other finishes available upon
3-piece, sparless all-carbon fiber construction keeps assembled element weight below 8 lbs. The integrated gurney boosts downforce with minimal drag impact, while bonded anodized aluminum uprights eliminate the need for bulky rivets, further reducing drag. The primary seam between the upper and lower skins is placed below the wing’s leading-edge centerline and is reinforced by a longitudinal bonded splice for maximum durability. UV-stable, flexible, high-gloss urethane clear coat resists chipping and cracking, is easy to clean, and provides long-lasting oxidation protection even when exposed to harsh sunlight.
