BRINGING EXTENSIVE BRAKE KNOWLEDGE TO THE CYCLING WORLD
In 1996, Hayes introduced the first hydraulic disc brake and revolutionized the mountain bike industry. The next year, Hayes sold 12,000 brake systems to Trek Bicycles. Then in 1997, the company formed Hayes Disc Brake to expand its foothold in the mountain bike industry. Innovations continued in other markets, too, with a heavy-duty mechanical brake and a patented SAHR developed for Caterpillar. Other big news: Hayes received ISO 9001 certification in 1999.
ROLLING OUT A COMPREHENSIVE BIKE PORTFOLIO
In 2005, Hayes made strategic acquisitions to offer a full portfolio of bicycle products and systems to service the needs of more than 250 original equipment bicycle manufacturers and enthusiasts worldwide. By 2006, Hayes owned SUNRinglé, Manitou, Wheelsmith, and ProTaper/Answer.
