Hayes Brake


Hayes Test Pilot – Ryan Stephen

In addition to racing and creating amazing new and innovative stunts on one and two wheels, Ryan puts his incredible motorcycling talent and degree in mechanical engineering to work at Hayes designing, testing and developing industry-leading brake and vehicle control systems.

In 2005, Ryan began a professional stunting career as a co-founder of Freestyle Lifestyle, a stunt team comprised of the best stunt riders in Southeastern Wisconsin. He presently rides a 2011 Husqvarna TE511 Supermoto conversion. Ryan decided on a part time career in stunting in 2004. This decision came after years of competitively racing Motocross in the District 16 AMA Motocross series and Mountain bikes in the WORS series. In addition, with the support of his sponsors he builds, and customizes his motorcycles, which is why Ryan’s Supermoto bike is nationally renowned throughout the stunting and Supermoto communities.
