Performance Exhaust for your Harley-Davidson
Firebrand – Performance Exhaust
Firebrand was created with the goal of building a new place in the motorcycle aftermarket industry where passion meets cutting edge, and innovation drives the company. Our first product, the Loose Cannon Slip-On was designed to offer the rider a uniquely styled exhaust, that not only looks great but sounds and performs as aggressively as it looks. Drawing from years of experience, we focused our attention on the engineering details that really make a difference, resulting not only in a great looking pipe with power and amazing sound, but one that delivers all of that at a tremendous value.
The Loose Cannon is just the first of a full pipeline of products soon to be heading out our doors. And don’t think Firebrand is just another exhaust company. The full name “Firebrand Design” was chosen for a reason. Of course, we manufacture, but it is the design element that will differentiate us, as sure as the passion for all things motorcycle will drive us. Firebrand is here to change the industry, and exhausts are just the beginning.

John Peck: John started riding at the age of 5 in the farmlands of New Jersey (no, it’s not all like on “The Sopranos” or “Jersey Shore”). He earned an economics degree from Syracuse University before starting a career in finance, and eventually heading back to school for an MBA from The University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business. The past 15 years were spent with industry giant, Vance and Hines. He began as Sales Manager, before taking on roles in Planning, Inventory and Production, culminating as Vice-President of Manufacturing. Along the way he only acted like he already knew everything, in reality using every opportunity to learn from the vast amount of knowledge surrounding him.

Favourite factoid: Passed Jeremy McGrath at the 2000 Carlsbad Christmas Grand Prix. Ok, so it was only
by ½ a wheel and only lasted about ½ a second, but it’s still pretty cool.
