The Brake Man Hits the Street with Push into Consumer and Fleet Markets

The Brake Man is now taking direct aim at the fleet and passenger automotive market. The expanded company focus starts with the official rollout of SuperBrakes from The Brake Man for virtually any application including passenger, performance, fleet, and emergency cars and trucks.

The Brake Man, an innovative designer and manufacturer of made-in-America motorsport brake systems and components, is now taking direct aim at the fleet and passenger automotive market. A well-known name among winning-teams across practically every form of automotive racing for nearly two decades, the move is the company’s first formal step outside of the hardcore racing community.

The expanded company focus starts with the official rollout of SuperBrakes from The Brake Man for virtually any application including passenger, performance, fleet, and emergency cars and trucks.  According to the company, SuperBrakes are ultra-quality, made-in-America, complete pad and rotor upgrades for stock brake systems that deliver 3-5 times more rotor life than OE parts while increasing overall braking performance by 30%. SuperBrakes are a direct replacement for factory components, requiring no modification, and they will not void any warranty.

"The hallmark of our company has been extreme durability coupled with race-proven performance," states Warren Gilliland, founder, president and chief engineer of The Brake Man.  "It is not uncommon for race teams to tell us they eliminated 80% of their brake maintenance and have not needed to replace a thing since switching to The Brake Man years ago."

Gilliland’s career highlights includes involvement in the first quick-change brake calipers for Indy cars, several industry-standard racing brake pad shapes, linear brake pad compounds, the first rear cambered spindles for NASCAR, the original zero-drag calipers, convoluted rotors, and technology that significantly improves brake fluid flow.   

SuperBrake rotors undergo a proprietary thermal Dynamogenic process eliminating internal stresses found in most cast rotors. According to the company, this increases rotor longevity and thermal capability while virtually eliminating warping.  SuperBrake pads are available in several compounds to meet specific vehicle needs for various fleet, performance, or personal cars and trucks. Each compound offers an improvement in torque output and pad life over similar stock or aftermarket compounds for more driver confidence and comfort. SuperBrake pads are processed to eliminate complicated bed-in.

The Brake Man brake systems and components have been mainstays for championship and event-winning monster trucks, long-distance off-road vehicles, drag racers, as well as dirt and asphalt racecars. The company reports that the Brake Man provides significantly improved performance, torque output, rigidity, pedal feel, thermal capacity and component life along with a reduced un-sprung weight and often eye-catching designs.  

The company says that SuperBrakes from The Brake Man utilize this same commitment to engineering to extend component life and improve performance for reduced stopping distances, overall cost of ownership, and down time. SuperBrakes from The Brake Man are available through automotive aftermarket dealers and retailers or directly from the company.
