The Verus Engineering Dive Plane (Canard) Kit adds front-end downforce without the necessity of moving a front splitter further forward.
Utilizing state-of-the-art analysis software during the R&D process, we were able to extract more performance for the given build volume; increasing downforce generated from the dive planes.
The dive plane kit was designed for owners looking to shift aero balance forward to help aid in balancing out a large rear wing or diffuser.

Dive planes increase front end grip at high rates of speed and can be used to help balance out diffusers or other rear-end aerodynamic devices. They work by creating high pressure on the top side of the dive plane, and low pressure on the bottom side. Our units were also designed to increase front wheel well evacuation which reduces lift in this area, further increasing downforce generated.
The goal of the diffuser and dive planes were to work as a package for the Focus ST to improve aerodynamic performance over the factory. The package is designed for the enthusiast who frequents track days and wants an effective aerodynamic package that balances the car at speed. Both components were designed to work together as a package.
