"The K9 Roof Rack System is a welcome alternative to the cage-style racks that once defined the typical overland roof rack. It is sleek, understated, and complimentary to the aesthetics of vehicles new and old. It is most importantly, remarkably robust, an attribute we would naturally expect from the engineers at Eezi-Awn." -- Christophe Noel, Executive Editor, Expedition Portal (Read The Full Review)

Made from matte black powder-coated, extruded aluminum with fully-welded joints (not bolts), the low-weight K9 offers an infinite number of gear organization configurations. At only 1-3/8" thick, the platform itself is very low-profile with aerodynamic edging that won't slow you down. With a modular system outside your vehicle to accommodate shovels, axes, jerry cans, and more, you save valuable space inside your vehicle.
Low-Profile : With only 1-3/8" of height, the K9 is one of the thinnest racks on the market
Aerodynamic Form : The exterior edge of the platform is an aerodynamic wedge that lets air pass smoothly across the surface. The platform slats are also oriented front to back so there is very little to catch the wind, reducing noise and vibration.
Incredibly Strong : The platform slat extrusions combined with lateral bracing offer incredible tensile strength strong enough for any load requirement.
Universal Compatibility : Two slots are designed into each platform slat to hold the head of an 8mmm hex bolt, providing infinite mounting location options both laterally and front to back.
Thule & Yakima Compatible : Already own gear for your roof? No worries. Instead of scrapping your existing gear, you can use your bike, boat, and ski mounts on top of the K9 rack.
Unrivaled Quality : Made in the same world-class Eezi-Awn factories as all of their other products, the K9 construction is guaranteed support for your investment.
Flat Roof Service : The K9 platform is completely flat allowing your Roof Top Tent to be more comfortable while sleeping and more aerodynamic.
Multi-Functional : Slots in the platform extrusions are accessible on the bottom of the rack and at both the front and back of the system allowing you to use the entire platform, not just the top. Add lights, tables, and other accessories! Taking multi-functional to the next level, even the edge has a slot in the top that accepts a 6mm hex bolt for mounting equipment to the edge of the rack system. A K9-specific edge-mounting extrusion is available to purchase as an accessory, allowing you to mount awnings and other equipment vertically to the outer edge.
Less Is More
Elegant design is achieved not by adding more to a concept, but by designing in less. The goal at Eezi-Awn is to always take away what isn't necessary, and design what is left to work harder. Every piece of the K9 Roof Tack System has been smartly created to provide maximum functionality.
