What are Tire Warmers?

Electrically powered heaters that are designed to wrap around your tires so that they are brought up to operating temperature BEFORE you start the race.  Greatly Decreasing your chances of a 1st turn crash do to cold tires.  Tire Warmers can save you thousands from just ONE Crash.

What forms of racing are applicable for Tire Warmers?

Most popular is road racing for motorcycles and cars although we have made Tire warmers for flat-track, drag racing and even moto-cross.

Why are tire warmers an advantage?

  • Great Starts - A tire that is up to temperature has more traction. This is helpful in getting good starts and making a charge for the first few laps.
  • Helps Avoid Cold -Tire Crashes - We all know when the track goes green every racer gives his best. Cold tires crashes are common among those without tire warmers.
  • Improves Tire Life - Heat Cycles: Heating your tires for practice and then keeping the warmers on between practice sessions saves Heat Cycles (the # of times a tire gets hot and then cools) which age your tires (the tire goes "off" meaning the best grip is gone). Cold Cutting: High-horsepower or heavy bikes can tend to cold-tear tires when ridden aggressively when the tire is cold. These "cuts" typically occur at the tires edges and effect performance and life.

What is operating temperature of the Tire Warmers ?

Almost all tire compounds (street legal and racing slicks) are working well at temperatures between 135 & 185 degrees Fahrenheit. Just because you are sweating and hot doesn't mean your tires are hot.

Is heat up time important?

Two important factors are: initial heat up time and complete heat soaking. Initial heat up should be a heat up cycle of 7-8 minutes to let the rubber cycle up to temperature slowly, this gives the best results. A "heat soak" is what is desired. This is complete heating through the tire, the whole carcass not just the surface rubber. For this reason a heating time of 45 minutes is recommended.

How is the heat regulated?

Thermostats, 2 per tire warmer, keep the warmer at a temperature of 175 degrees Fahrenheit(80C). If there is a delay in races, leaving the warmers on for extra time is not a problem.

Why Chicken Hawk Racing Tire Warmers?

  • Chicken Hawk warmers are easy to put on and the easiest/fastest to take off.
  • Utilize Nomex insulation to keep the heat in.
  • Chicken Hawk warmers have a heat up time and target temperature that is designed to the specifications of Dunlop and Michelin racing tires.
  • The most durable unit using high impact thermostats and silicone insulated heating coils.
