THE STARTER KIT:
1 x 9M, 8200kg Heavy Duty Kinetic Recovery Rope
2 x 10,000kg HDX SaberPro Soft Shackles
THE KINETIC ROPE:
The Saber Offroad 9 Metre Kinetic Recovery Rope is one of the most effective recovery tools you can carry in your vehicle. Compared to tow rope chains or even a traditional snatch strap, the benefits of using a kinetic recovery rope is clear as day.
The key feature that makes this kinetic recovery rope so effective is its ability to stretch. When put under load, it will stretch up to 30%, which develops many benefits during vehicle recovery. Compared to even the best snatch straps on the market, this is over 50% more stretch. This added stretch significantly relieves the sudden shock felt during vehicle recovery, reducing the stress on the vehicle and those inside.
With kinetic recovery ropes, some slack can be left before the recovering vehicle starts the recovery. This allows the rope to gain more momentum and therefore gaining a much higher pulling force, helping especially in very loose terrain, such as deep sand, snow or mud. Since the kinetic recovery rope is excellent at absorbing shock, it will simply stretch under tension and then transfer all the energy gained from the recovering vehicle to the vehicle in need.
From a compliance perspective, the Saber Offroad Kinetic Recovery Rope range has been tested in a NATA accredited facility in Melbourne. Combined with the testing of the products, it also has the required labelling so the product is fully compliant for sale in Australia. It is important to note that not all kinetic ropes are created equal. During the product development stage, a number of ropes were tested both from competitors in the market today, and from some alternative potential manufacturers, and the results were concerning. Saber Offroad is proud of the quality, design and safety aspects of this rope range.
Whilst Saber Offroad have released heavy duty soft shackles in the past, nothing compares to the strength and durability of our HDX – 10,000KG Technora Bound Soft Shackle. This high capacity soft shackle is manufactured with our proprietary blended coated fibre, SaberPro, and our latest shackle design. With this level of strength, this shackle is ideal for small-medium 4×4’s, pick-ups and similar sized vehicles.
This shackle offers not only a 10,000KG minimum breaking strength, but the Technora binding offers truly cut resistant protection for the SaberPro core. As with the other products in the Saber Offroad shackle range, this product is designed to be a safer, stronger, lighter and easier to use alternative to other shackles (both soft and metal).
Having tested the shackles in a NATA accredited facility in Melbourne, Saber Offroad shackles perform at a superior level compared to many other tested competitor products.
When combining the Saber Offroad 10,000kg HDX SaberPro Soft Shackles with 8,200kg Kinetic Recovery Rope, a far safer recovery will occur. There are examples everywhere of the failure of unrated (and in some cases rated) metal shackles failing during recovery, and the damage to the vehicles and most importantly those in and around the vehicles is horrendous. A well-matched, NATA tested, soft shackle and kinetic recovery rope virtually eliminate these risks.
So, a recovery kit that includes a kinetic rope that offers 50% more stretch than the best snatch straps on the market, combined with two world-class soft shackles, makes this kit a must for anyone going offroad.
