As the originator of the high-flow performance air filter, K&N is always looking for new ways to provide excellent protection and maximum power for your sedan, truck, motorcycle and just about anything with an engine. In the early 1960s, two motorcycle racers, Ken Johnson and Norm McDonald (the origins of the K&N name), came up with a revolutionary new design for an air filter. It was designed to withstand the punishing dust and dirt in an off-road setting.
The original K&N High-Flow Air Filter was created after extensive testing with several types of filter media. The new oiled cotton design allowed the filter to not only trap impurities very well but also allow for washing and reuse. Five decades later, K&N is still developing industry-leading filtration technology, and provides excellent protection for a wide range of vehicles, from commuter cars to top-fuel dragsters, all over the world.
K&N has been a market leader in automotive filtration and technology for more than 50 years, providing consumers all over the world with solutions that improve performance, protection and longevity in countless vehicle applications. With a reputation for exceptional quality and customer service that millions of customers trust, K&N now produces a variety of other protection and performance products in addition to performance air filters, including air intake systems, oil filters, fuel filters, cabin air filters and home air filters.
