Dolium practically pioneered flat-deck roof racks in Australia, and now they’ve made a good thing even better with the introduction of the ‘next generation’ in flat-decks – the K9 Rak.
A true expedition-strength roof rack, the K9 Rak employs a fully-welded Aluminium deck with cross-braced longitudinal slats for greater support and carrying capacity.
Built around aero-section Aluminium extrusions, and with built-in harmonic damping thanks to the cross-bracing, the longitudinal front-to-back slat arrangement significantly reduces noise and drag.
Each slat incorporates twin slots which accept movable bolts giving the K9 Rak far greater mounting versatility than other flat-deck racks – it’ll even accept most other brands’ accessories.
The K9 Rak isn’t just stronger and quieter than other flat-deck racks – it’s also lower. With low-profile aero section extrusions and a close-fitting mounting system, K9 Rak gives you more clearance and even better looks.
Suitable for a wide range of vehicles, K9 Raks are made in South Africa by Eezi-Awn (a company with 32 years’ experience in expedition equipment manufacture) and supported nationally by Dolium (one of Australia’s longest-established 4x4 accessory suppliers).
K9 Roof Rack
A revolutionary cutting edge advancement in expedition style rack design. The K9 System is engineered and manufactured at the Eezi-Awn facility.
With over 31 years of experience in the expedition market across the globe, Eezi-Awn knows what is necessary in a rack and what will take it to the next level. The K9 Roof Rack System is thinner, stronger, more functional, aerodynamic and made to last.
Simply a Smarter Rack
Thin Design – The K9 Rack platform is 1-3/8” tall, making it one of the thinnest racks on the market
Aerodynamic Form – The exterior edge of the platform is an aerodynamic wedge to let air pass smoothly across the surface and with the platform slats oriented front to back, there is very little to catch the wind, reducing wind noise and vibration.
Incredibly Strong – The platform slat extrusions offer incredible tensile strength. Combined with lateral bracing, the platform is strong enough for any load requirement.
Infinitely Compatible – 2 slots are designed into each platform slat to hold the head of an 8mm hex headed bolt, providing infinite mounting location options both laterally and front to back.
Eezi-Awn Quality – World class construction and support for your investment. We stand behind our products.
Able to Manage Any Task
Thule and Yakima Sport Bar Compatible – Already own gear for your roof? No Worries. You can use your bike, boat and ski mounts on top of the K9 rack. By using Thule or Yakima track towers in the K9 platform slots you can add sports bars and all your accessories. No need to scrap your existing gear to use this system.
Flat Platform Design – The K9 platform is absolutely flat. Now you can mount your Roof Top Tent directly to the flat surface, making it much more aerodynamic. Your cargo carriers will match up much easier as well.
Hard Working, Top and Bottom – Slots in the platform extrusions are accessible on the bottom of the rack, at both the front and back of the rack. So you can add lights, tables and other accessories to the bottom of the rack as well.
Cutting Edge Design – The aerodynamic platform edge has a slot in the top that accepts a 6mm hex head bolt for mounting equipment to the edge of the rack system. A K9 specific edge mounting extrusion is available as an accessory and allows you to mount awnings and other equipment vertically to the outer edge.
