HB Performance Systems’ brakes, suspension are crucial for recreational and construction vehicles, bicycles

Some of the biggest names in motorcycling, all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, construction and agricultural equipment and even bicycling are all known for speed and handling.

But their products all have something else in common – the need to stop.

That’s where Mequon-based HB Performance Systems comes in. The company makes braking and suspension systems used by industry leaders like Harley-Davidson Inc., Bombardier Recreational Products, Caterpillar, and high end European bicycle manufacturers such as Decathlon.

“We are a braking and suspension supplier in the non-automotive market,” said Rand McNally, president and CEO. “We make brakes for everything from the smallest zero turn radius lawnmower all the way up to large Caterpillar tractors, backhoes and sprayers.”

From its Mequon headquarters and main manufacturing facility, HB makes brakes for motorcycles, ATVs, utility vehicles, snowmobiles, construction and agricultural equipment, and related markets. The company also operates a 100,000-square-foot facility in Milwaukee where it makes bicycle spokes, wheels and rims.
