About Baer Brake Systems

Baer Racing, Inc. was established in 1986. Founder Hal Baer's technical and analytical skills, coupled with a keen ability to spot people with strong, diverse talents and assemble them into a cohesive team, has and continues to be Baer Racing's greatest strength, both on and off the track. Originally the business provided race preparation and fabrication services between seasons and race dates. But as popularity and demand for its brake systems grew, Baer was forced to look at beginning real production of its systems. To that end, following the 1993 race season, Hal Baer partnered with Todd Gartshore and Robert Sommers to form Baer Brake Systems.

Today Baer offers the industry´s most complete line of performance brake products, from the new DecelaRotor™ line, offering entry level enthusiasts direct OE replacement rotors, to the family of race and road-going systems engineered and manufactured entirely by Baer. Baer's 6-piston MonoBlock calipers, machined in-house from a single chunk of forged aluminum alloy and featured in Baer Claw® EXTREME-PLUS systems, truly are the stiffest, gnarliest, most robust road-going calipers in the world. Baer was the first to make this leading-edge racing technology accessible and affordable for enthusiasts, and to date, Baer is still the only one!
