When talking about fairings related to karting, it is impossible not to mention KG: the Italian company has thirty years of experience in the field and currently supplies many of the major chassis manufacturers. The first fairings created by KG were square-shaped and specifically for the lateral protection of the kart. Nowadays, however, fairing kits include a front spoiler, two side pods, front fairing and rear bumper. They are not only essential for safety, but also when it comes to performance on the track.
KG has several fairing models for karts in its catalogue, but the 505 is definitely the one that represents the greatest effort in terms of design and development. Unlike in the past, the primary objective during the design and manufacturing processes of this fairing kit was aerodynamics research. To solve the various problems in this field, KG carried out studies on fluid dynamics using software provided by Aotech, a French laboratory specialised in CFD applied to motorsport.
