MK7R /MK7.5R fitment is not confirmed as of 4/22/24

Canards can serve a range of purposes. Ours were specifically shaped to improve:
1. aero braking
2. add front-end downforce and drag reduction (compared to a tire spat).  
3. Create a lower pressure zone around the front wheel to improve brake cooling. 

Our CFD simulations projected that these add 15lbs of downforce, with 2lbs of drag at 100 mph compared to a stock MK7 golf. Yaw improved by 2lbs.
Translating this to the real world, one of our early adopters using this canard improved their top end speed at Summit Point Main by .8 mph, lap time by .3 seconds. Your results will vary, depending on the other aero on your car, spring rates, HP, etc. This information is just a reference point.

So you may be asking, will I feel this? It depends. We have completed a range of CFD testing on various cars and aero setups, followed by on track testing to quantify how much downforce and drag different drivers can feel behind the wheel. While it does range depending on the experience of the driver, the cars suspension and whole list of other factors. We have concluded that ~30lbs of DF at 100mph is the threshold where the average driver will feel a difference. Keep in mind that  multiple smaller aero devices on a car can add up to make an impactful difference. If you need to balance a large wing, we suggest pairing these with an endplate on your splitter, and/or a tire spat to cover any tire poke to dial in a good vehicle balance. 

Each order includes:

  • One driver side canard
  • One passenger side canard
  • Black stainless steel mounting hardware
  • Digital install sheet

Product details:

  • Formed in 3K twill carbon weave with epoxy vacuum infusion (no fiberglass or fillers here! this is pure carbon). 
  • Finished with a 2K automotive matte UV clear coating. 
  • Requires drilling to install
  • Each canard weighs 3oz. 
  • Made in our Phoenixville, Pennsylvania shop.

DISCLAIMER: This part is designed to be functional first, and cosmetic second. We strive to achieve a quality finish on every one of these parts. However, be aware that this is a handmade part. The layup, cutting, sanding and clear coat is all applied by hand which can leave behind minor surface blemishes. The visible weave may not be perfectly straight on the part. The underside of the canard has a matte finish from the peel-ply layer.

      To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. There are certain situations where only partial refunds are granted.

      25% restocking fee applies to products returned without all original packaging.  We will provide a return label in the first 30 days (since ship date) and deduct the cost of the return label from the refund.

      $75 (part cost) - $14 (return shipping label) = $61 refund.
