Product Description

Why Choose a Viking Offroad Kinetic Recovery Tow Rope over a strap? The Viking Offroad Tow Ropes stretch 30% at breaking point, making them more effective than straps. The high degree of stretch makes the recovery ropes extremely absorbent of kinetic energy as its transferred from one vehicle to another. The point of a recovery rope or snatch strap is to provide stretch in a dynamic pull (opposite is true for winchlines in a static pull). The more stretch the more kinetic energy is built up to help move the vehicle, & the less impact on the vehicle itself. The Viking Offroad Kinetic Recovery Tow Rope is made from 100% premium DuPont nylon, double-braided. Our ropes are dyed black to minimize discoloration when dirty & to maintain better visibility when used in snow & sand. Eyes are protected w/ heavy-duty nylon guards w/ strength identofied. All our ropes are 100% US made: both fiber & assembly. When choosing a Tow Rope size (1" and 3/4" diameter options above), plan the breaking strength to be approximately 3 times the weight of your vehicle. For larger vehicles this number is closer to the weight of the vehicle. 3/4" Recovery Ropes are best matched for most 4x4's ans SUV's such as Jeeps, Toyota pickups, FJ Cruisers, Land Cruisers, Land Rovers, and lighter full size pick-ups etc. 1" Recovery Ropes are reserved for Sportsmobiles, Heavy expedition vehicles, Military Hummvees, full size pickups etc.

SAFETY NOTE: Do not use tow ropes or tow straps (kinetic snatch straps etc.) w/ winches. Never connect ropes/straps end-to-end w/ other kinetic ropes/straps, w/ shackles or metal connectors.
 
ADDITIONAL SAFETY NOTE: The point at which you should not try a kinetic energy recovery is when there is a significant weight discrepancy between the two vehicles (e.g., the weight difference between a G-Wagen and a small Toyota pickup or between a small Toyota and an ATV) and you do not have a tow rope suitable for use with the smaller vehicle.  In such situations, you ought to use a tow rope suited for the smaller of the two veihicles. The smaller vehicle in such situations typically does not have recovery points that can withstand the impact of a dynamic recovery from a rope that is made for a significantly larger vehicle. A rope that is too thick, and used to recover a small vehicle, will not offer enough elasticity to the recovery points on that small vehicle. The difference of a 5,000 Lb. vs. 4,000 Lb. truck doesn't usually matter that much.  For your safety, you should also never shock load the rope.  For example, you should never create too much slack on the recovery rope while connected to any other vehicle and then floor it, creating a shock load.  This would put you at serious risk.
