K&N first developed air filters specifically for the motorcycle
racing market. With the success K&N experienced in the motorcycle
market, the company decided to branch out to the automotive market.
K&N quickly grew to be the world's most widely used performance
air filter in both the automotive and motorcycle markets.
Today, K&N equips approximately 80% of all off-road racing vehicles.
Racers using K&N products have won in nearly every major off-road
event in the world, including Pikes Peak, the Baja 500 and 1000
and the grueling Paris to Dakar race. K&N also dominates some
of the world's most prestigious and technical racing series.
To keep on the cutting edge of technology, K&N Engineering has
its own technical facility devoted solely to product development
and testing. The facility has two chassis dynamometers to ensure
that all K&N air intake kits and filters are technically designed
for the highest increase in horsepower possible. Such testing and
development has yielded products such as our Generation II Fuel
Injection Performance Kits, which lead the industry in horsepower
K&N composites are some of the most sophisticated high performance
composites available in the market today. The use of advanced composites
such as Kevlar, carbon fiber, and other arimid fiber products have
