Hawk Performance® has long been known as a leading supplier of high-performance and severe duty friction products for the aftermarket. In an effort to always stay on the cutting edge of friction technology, we continually analyze how to improve our products.
After extensive development, testing, and validation, we have engineered a new and improved version of our popular HP+ compound. HP+ has been the go-to choice for Hawk users for Autocross and other heavy braking needs. Hawk has now combined the best of both HP+ and Street/Race compounds by maximizing the stopping power and fade resistance of our current HP+, while maintaining the street and track versatility of Street/Race. The new HP+ displays lower pad wear and noticeably improved rotor wear over the two previous compounds. Not only does the new HP+ have reduced pad and rotor wear, but it can be quieter and less dusty with some applications while exhibiting less temperature sensitivity, for improved modulation and driver confidence.
All HP+ product manufactured after July 16, 2018 is manufactured with the new, and improved, formulation. Product is available and in stock for purchase now. With the performance benefits of the new HP+, Hawk will be retiring the Street/Race compound. The transition from Street/Race to the new and improved HP+ will be seamless with distinct performance advantages. Limited quantities of Street/Race part numbers are available for purchase, while supplies last.
