Hinson was founded in 1992 by Wayne Hinson. Hinson was an entrepreneur with a genuine interest and passion for motorsports. During the late 80s Hinson worked as a professional mechanic of quads at the Grand National Champion Gary Denton. Hinson's attention to detail when it came to improving the performance of motor vehicles was an important part of Hinson's success story. If there was something that needed to be developed that did not already exist on the aftermarket Hinson simply created it. It was during this time that the first Hinson clutch basket was born. With a focus on producing products that were durable yet lightweight succeeded Hinson into quickly creating a name for itself on the market and soon Hinson Clutch Components is known all around the world.
