About us

Having worked with the likes of Juha Salmanin, Giovani Sala, David Knight, Cyril Depres and Bernd Heimer, he returned home to South Africa and founded Hayward Suspension. Since its founding, Hayward Suspension has brought home 34 National titles in the last 5 years.

How much do you want to win?

Time and again suspension has proven to be the biggest area of gain in competitive motorsport. It is the vital link standing between the power of your bike's engine and the terrain it runs on. And there can be no doubt that at all levels of competition a properly set up machine can be the difference between first position and also-ran.

Yet it remains an extremely technical aspect of motor racing. Part science, part intuition, it requires not only an in-depth knowledge of the engineering of siuspension, but expertise and experience gained in riding and racing at the highest level. And it remains an area that only a few experts have grasped full mystery of.
