Hawk Performance brake products are engineered to allow users to
control, command and conquer whatever type of terrain their vehicle is
designed for. Decades of experience developing friction materials for
Aerospace, Industrial, Military, Automotive and Motorsports applications
have given them an advantage over the competition. Their advanced friction
technology enables Hawk to provide the right brake pad for whatever you
drive, and wherever you drive. That's what separates Hawk Performance from all
Why did we choose to sell these? Because we know the man who did the
testing for em !!
Here's what Brett from Dominion Offroad found:
"Lets face it, the factory brake pads aren't
the best in the world. About three months ago, I set out to find the
best brake pad replacement that I could find. The options quickly
became limited to Hawk, Akenobo and EBC. Akenobo has not developed a
performance brake pad for the JK. Only an OEM replacement.
Where I personally needed extra braking
performance is when I have a wheel dropping off of an obstacle, lets
call it a rock. The technique that I use is to keep the Jeep in gear
with my foot on the break. I like to push the break hard just as the
wheel is dropping off the rock. It keeps the rig moving forward
smoothly as if I had extremely low gearing. You don't see any of the
pulsing motion that you get with an automatic tranny, or if you're
trying to role down it in neutral. I had to hammer the brakes way to
hard to get my rig to slow down and even with full foot to the floor
the factory brakes are not enough. I now have that extra of braking
power that I need. I've seen the difference.
I've spent the last six months testing the Hawk
pads and I'm stoked with the result. A marked improvement in cold
stopping power and that's just what we need for crawling around on the
rocks with big tires.
I've also heard of guys with larger tires not
having enough stopping power to get the ABS to kick in. I've not run
into this myself, but have the piece of mind that I've done what I can
to maximize the stopping power of the factory brake system. A larger
brake system was too expensive for me to justify.
I talked with Hawk. They make a great product.
From what they told me the benefits are more for racing. Most high
performance brake pads are high performance because they have a strong
bite when they get hot. I don't really care about bite when my brakes
get hot. Why? because they never get really hot. I wanted cold stopping
power. I'm offering Hawk brake pads, because I've had a great personal
experience with them. I'm offering them because so many people have had
great experiences with them."
