LOS ANGELES (Nov. 3, 2020) — Front Runner Outfitters (Front Runner), the South African-based adventure travel gear company, known for dependable, innovative, and thoughtfully designed overlanding and camping equipment, releases a roof rack option specifically for the new Land Rover Defender 110. Front Runner’s addition of the Land Rover New Defender 110 Slimline II Roof Rack Kit is a nod to the heritage of overlanding and early adventurers that utilized the original Defender platform for off-road travel. Offered in a modernized package, the Land Rover New Defender 110 Roof Rack Kit is a thoughtful aftermarket solution for new Defender 110 owners looking to customize their build with a tried-and-true roof rack system.

The Land Rover New Defender 110 Roof Rack Kit is designed around Front Runner’s Slimline II rack system, allowing users to incorporate more than 55 accessories for a long overland expedition, a weekend trip or any adventure in between. From sport mounts to cargo hauling solutions and the ability to directly integrate useful camping gear, the modular Slimline II allows users to choose their own adventure. Freeing up precious vehicle interior space has never been easier thanks to endless ways to configure accessories and cargo on the rack.

As is true with all of Front Runner’s roof racks, the Land Rover New Defender 110 Roof Rack Kit is constructed of premium-grade durable materials that will withstand harsh weather and road conditions for a long and reliable life. The vehicle-specific footrails allow for a full-sized tray that clears the rear antenna for easy and full access. This rack can withstand the stress of any adventure, on-road or off-road, with load ratings that easily exceed Land Rover’s recommended maximum roof weight rating.

The Land Rover New Defender 110 Rack Kit contains all of the components needed to mount the roof rack to a new Land Rover Defender 110, including the Slimline II tray, wind deflector and feet. The mounting system easily bolts to the existing mounting points on the body of the vehicle, eliminating the need for drilling. The patented mounting solution delivers trusted quality and strength necessary for extreme overlanding expeditions without compromising the streamline, modern look of the SUV. Front Runner also offers a mounting solution for Defender 110 customers that opt to retain the factory roof rails.

The Front Runner New Defender Rack Kit with direct mount footrails (MSRP: $1,465 USD) and New Defender Rack Kit for factory roof rails (MSRP: $975 USD) is available now, directly from Front Runner’s website or through your local Front Runner official dealer.
