Deploying 70+ years of brake experience

Braking systems for military equipment are subject to daily conditions that would obliterate a standard brake system. And when it comes to protecting our troops, there’s no substitute for experience. That’s why two leading defense contractors partnered with Hayes to develop a new brake system for the JLTV (Joint Light Tactical Vehicle) launch, the upcoming selection for the next-generation Humvee vehicle.

Made in the USA and made for reliability

Being a U.S. brake manufacturer makes it easier for Hayes to collaborate and communicate with approved government vendors, ensuring government regulations and requirements are met. This is especially important when it comes to International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliance and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems designed for defense contracts. And Hayes’ Midwest location translates to a local supply chain that is faster and more dependable for service parts.
