World Premiere of the X-BOW GT

Greg Lock from Hangar 111 will be joining KTM at the 2013 International Geneva Motor Show, to present the first KTM X-BOW with a windscreen, called the X-BOW GT, to the world audience.

Based on the X-BOW R, the GT boasts a windscreen and sidescreens to provide occupants with additional protection from the elements.  Also available are a soft top roof (“X-Top”) which can be quickly and easily fitted, as well as a new baggage system which provides up to 50 litres of storage space.

Like other X-BOW, the GT can be individually designed with a range of new colours, and stylish PowerParts.

The KTM X-BOW GT is available for immediate order, with initial deliveries scheduled for May 2013.

Ti-Links ARB links for the X-Bow

High-strength rod ends combined with strong, light titanium link rods. Developed for track and race car use, these links are shorter than standard to compensate for vehicles running lower ride heights and are also adjustable to enable fine tuning.

So why change the standard configuration? Our Ti-Links are shorter than standard versions which results in an instant reduction in body roll when loading the car up into a corner. This in turn allows the suspension more freedom of movement (if a damper bottoms out mid-corner then grip is reduced). Add to that 15mm adjustability in the rod lengths and you have the ability to fine-tune to taste. In practice we would recommend a lower spring rate and softer damper settings to allow the suspension to move more freely. This is down to personal taste however!

The arb drop links are subject to constant stresses which can lead to premature failure in oem type ball joints if the car is used frequently on the track. This generally results in a knocking or rattling noise. Replacing these with aircraft-grade spherical bearing rods-ends means you can rely on their accuracy and durability for much longer.

Pagid RS-14 and RS-15 Pads

Pagid RS-14 (Black)

Over the years, our faith in the capabilities of Pagid RS pads has been unabated.  Our experience tells us that this is partly down to their excellent feel, initial bite and superb performance under high temperatures.  The RS-14 compound pads have been the staple diet of many Lotus track day drivers and racers for a number of years.

Pagid’s RS14 is a ceramic-based friction material that offers a good initial bite and consistant feel under light and heavy braking.  It has very good modulation characteristics and offers good control against wheel lock at all temperatures.

In practical use, we’ve found them to be at home on the road if they are regularly subject to the heat of use on the track.   They are an ideal replacement pad for the X-Bow.  We recommend using them on the front and rear as opposed to mixing compounds.

Pagid RS-15 (Grey)

The RS15 pad is also a ceramic-based formulation developed in the same way as the RS14 for similar use.  RS-15 is suitable for applications where very high levels of friction (braking torque) are required, or situations were very high disc temperatures are experienced.

RS15 combines the benefits of RS14 with approximately a 20% increase in the stopping performance.  With even greater intial bite and braking feel.  This increase in bite is often very useful on cars without servo assistance that are known to require high pedal forces to brake the car efficiently.  The RS-15 pads is therefore ideal for the X-Bow where we have found deterioration in front and rear pads due to overheating – common when a ‘road’ pad and disc combination are used frequently on the track.
