With the "team" model, the entire width and circumference of the tire tread is heated to individually adjustable temperatures by means of the TCU-4 × 1 control unit.
You can find information about the functionalities of the control unit here.
With the TCU-4 × 1 digital control, the desired temperatures are achieved fastest and with the greatest accuracy. The same applies to the air pressure, those who value minimal deviations among the 4 tires will find the right tool with the TCU control.
On the tire warmer is for better handling only an about 20cm long connecting cable, including lockable 7-pin special plug.
At the control unit, the supply lines are approx. 1.60 m long, loosely enough for heating in the stack. Appropriate TCU extension cables for heating on the car, are available separately.
Absolutely uniform heat transfer to the tire tread. No loss of grip due to local overheating as with conventional heating techniques.
As soon as the tire warmer is connected to the TCU, the ultra bright red LED lights up. When the TCU is switched off, the red LED also goes out, so that the TCU's control activity can be tracked.
Only the highest quality materials from German production are used. A heat-resistant layer of NOMEX fabric on the inside, air- and water-repellent SUPERTEX on the outside.
Several layers of high-tech insulation felts ensure optimum thermal insulation.
A central Velcro flap and side quick release tension cords allow easy assembly / disassembly.
The sidewalls of the tire warmers are already provided with appropriate velcro if side covers (sold separately) are to be used.
The tire warmers are equipped with colored strips that are attached by means of Velcro. The strips are printed on the circumference with "FL / FR / RL / RR" for easy assignment to the 4 wheels 3x on the circumference. Another individual imprint of name / team logo etc. is possible for a surcharge.
Colors: black, (neon) red, blue, (neon) yellow, orange, (neon) green, silver gray and some more on request.
4 pieces side covers are included in the model "team".
Both when heating in the stack and when heating directly on the car, we recommend the use of side covers.
In the stack, the side covers between the tires prevent a "chimney effect", in which the warm air in the interior of the tire stack collects primarily in the upper area. This would mean that between bottom and top tire, different rim temperatures and air pressures would result.
When heating on the car, the side covers prevent the rim from cooling down and thus causing an unwanted drop in tire pressure
For safe storage and transport of the tire warmers, side covers and the TCU control unit, a hand-sewn transport bag is included. This is water-repellent, tear-resistant and equipped with 2 large carrying handles.
In Formula 1 or the DTM, the reliability requirements are enormous. Our decades of experience in this profession pays off for you too, thanks to its outstanding service life. In order to maintain our quality level, KLS tire warmers are 100% handmade in Germany. So we can give a guarantee of 4 years.
For an unambiguous assignment to the vehicle, each strip (3x distributed around the circumference) is printed with VL, VR, HL or HR.
Cable strain relief
Stable cable strain relief ensures a long service life and avoids defects at this critical point
KLS heating technology
Specially developed KLS heating technology, extremely even, fast and reliable.
Assembly quick clamping system
Specially developed quick-release system in which the tensioning cords are fixed to the hook of the warmer. So they are tidy and do not run the risk to pinch somewhere (brakes, wheel hub)
Velcro fastened color strips for individual design. Interchangeability allows color change or renewal in case of contamination. Individual lettering / logo possible
