Gear to Get You Home® from your Offroad Adventures
The Leaders in Modern 4x4 Recovery Equipment
Safer, Smarter, Stronger®
Engineered & Tested in Australia, Used Across the World
Our mission is to eliminate as much weight as possible from the recovery process, for example replacing metal with rope and soft shackles, and steel with aluminium, to reduce the risk to you and create products lighter and stronger – and ultimately safer.
There have been too many horror stories of bow shackles flying through the air after a failed recovery and injuring (or much worse) drivers, passengers and bystanders.
We stand behind the strength and safety of our products because we test all of our products to destruction in a NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) lab. We also take our gear into recovery situations for thorough real-world testing.
You’ll see batch numbers and contact details on all our products. It’s your way of knowing we’ve tested each product beyond their capabilities and limits. More than that, our products meet all applicable standards and are always labelled accordingly. We want you to be as confident in our products as we are.
Our research and development team works hard to produce the world’s best recovery gear. From the coating on our ropes to the aluminium we use in our accessories, the material we source has been researched and selected because it’s the best quality product for the recovery solution.
Where it doesn’t exist or we don’t believe the highest quality possible, we’ll research and develop our own product or material, like our SaberPro fibre. This proprietary fibre has allowed us to make products that are the toughest on the market.
And, because we’re stronger and smarter together, we work closely with the team at the Australian Automotive Innovation Centre (AIC) and our NATA testing labs, which gives us access to first-rate testing machinery and engineering excellence to assist in the further development of our world-class products.
Our aim is to make sure our products are the strongest and longest lasting on the market. That’s why we spend so much time researching, testing materials and developing our own specific range of products.
From the design of knots used on our soft shackles to the bend radius on our recovery rings, we are constantly improving our products to make them the best in the world.
We know our gear needs to perform in the harshest recovery situations and that’s why we ensure our products work beyond their rated capacities to give you confidence and peace of mind.
