Chicken Hawk Racing

Professional Quality Tyre Warmers
Imported and distributed by HPS


The USA's most advanced professional tyre warmers
Imported into the UK by HPS, Chicken Hawk Racing Inc. (CHR) was founded in 1992 building industrial-grade electric heaters for the professional motorsports industry.

Located in the Hudson Valley of New York State, USA, since then their skilled team has been totally dedicated to designing, building and servicing the most effective and dependable Tyre Warmers there are.

Working in all forms of motorsports - from motorcycle road racing to karting, drag car racing to car circuit racing - provides the company with a diversity of experience rarely matched.

CHR’s deep understanding of tyres - and how to manage them not only for maximum performance, but also for maximum life (combined with their attention to the often smallest of details, details which can often make the biggest of differences) sets their Tyre Warmers apart from less sophisticated and so-called "hobbyist" products ...products that often fail to perform or, worse still, warmers that can be frequently found to damage your tyres or bike - see below.

CHR tyre warmers are designed and constantly refined by working worldwide in close collaboration with the Race and Road Tyre Development and Engineering Divisions of the leading tyre manufacturers, including Dunlop, Michelin & Bridgestone.

And, as a measure of CHR's standing within the bike racing world with these leading tyre manufacturers CHR are proud to be the maker of choice when the top tyre companies (including Bridgestone Dunlop and Michelin) choose to put their own brand names on the same Chicken Hawk Tyre Warmers that you can buy from HPS right now.

Not all tyre warmers are the same - ensure you avoid inferior products that...

get too hot too quickly and scorch the tyres (you will see Blue lines forming on your tyres)
are not temperature accurate - meaning your tyres may be underheated or overheated, and you will not know which
have the Liner separate from the Insulation - meaning you end up with the entire heating element loose and helter-skelter which will create hot spots and will blister your tyre
have no way to test warmer performance
catch on fire ...yes, we have seen this happen! (see quotes below)

"They seemed to work well however, the rear caught fire the 3rd time I used it - luckily I was standing next to the bike and killed the power almost instantly... eek"

“last weekend the rear tyre warmer burnt a hole in my rear tyre - AGAIN!’s time to buy something decent”

“...has a set that have just ******* up, the rear one burnt his tyre at Oulton the other week - his are less than 12month old as well”

ducati usa tyre heaters

2015 Grand Prix world champion Danny Kent (and his championship second placed team mate, Miguel Olivera) achieved consistent race-winning successes knowing they could rely upon the grip provided from their Dunlop tyres which were heated by their Chicken Hawk Racing (CHR) warmers - chosen for their reputation forged over many years for consistent performance and reliability.

Danny - who is Britain's first Grand Prix world champion since Barry Sheen in 1978 - is now competing at the higher Moto2 level this season, with his Kiefer Racing Leopard team again, having chosen CHR warmers to underpin their campaign.
