K&N Engineering, Inc. has been the innovative leader in air induction and filter technology since 1969, serving the needs of the automotive, motorcycle, marine, industrial and military markets. Headquartered in Riverside, California, K&N also has a manufacturing facility in the United Kingdom that covers Scandinavia, Russia, the Middle East and the European markets. K&N's distribution centers are located in Riverside, Warrington, and Venlo. To further internationalize, in 2000 a Sales and Marketing office was established in Eindhoven, the Netherlands and further expansion will continue into the future.

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 gains.

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 been used in the development of a number of K&N's products. K&N composites provide the high performance enthusiast with leading edge technology to ensure winning results.

K&N has capitalized on its racing heritage along with it's premium air flow and dirt filtration, environmental friendliness and ten-year, million-mile limited warranty to catapult itself to the front of the performance air filtration industry. K&N has garnered numerous awards from SEMA, including "Manufacturer of the Year in 1994, 1996, 1997, and 2000 making K&N the first company to receive this prestigious award four times.
