GCAG Z-Drag Recovery System

Simplify self recovery with our quick deploy Z-Drag kit.

It can sap your energy trying to get your bike unstuck. It can also fall in a way that makes it difficult to pick up. The Z-Drag is a common rig to give you a mechanical advantage for reduced pull. The combination of roller cams provides a 4:1 pulling ratio for self recovery and a 5:1 ratio when you have help. A laminated instruction card is included in the bag.


  • Quick Deploy - No knowledge of rigging and knot work required. Our Z-Drag comes out of the bag rigged and ready to use.
  • Color Coded - For simple operation.
  • Locking Carabiners - Two climbing rated, locking carabiners for secure attachment.
  • Lightweight - Approx. 3 pounds and small enough to pack on a motorcycle.
  • Strong - Even though its small, its still has a 1000 pound working load. 
  • Versatile - With a 74' mainline you will always have enough length to get creative in a tough situation.
  • Multi-Function Bag - The bag features MOLLE compatible webbing on the  outside for external attachment. The bag can also be utilized as a dead man anchor.
  • Storage - Comes in a 1000D Cordura storage bag.
  • Recovery - Can be used for solo recovery or with help from friends.
  • Trail Repairs - Can easily be used to hoist your bike from an overhead support for repairs and maintenance while traveling.

Tested out the Z-Drag in my front yard flipping over a Suzuki 800De Adventure from its side, no problem! Works as advertised and doesn’t tangle coming out of the bag. Great product!

Recovery System- Why Not?

I’ve always lived with the thought “Better to have it and not need it, vs Needing it and not having it!” This Green Chili System WILL be there when I need it…..I’m 100% Positive due to the high quality construction and ease of operation :-) Thank You GCAG for giving me that “Piece of Mind!”

GCAG Z-Drag Recovery System

Great build quality
Pre-assembled so very easy to use in a stressful situation like being stuck.
A must have if you are out on technical trails with a mid to big adventure bike


Very well made and a simple user friendly design

Used it my first time out,

Bought this wondering if I would ever actually need it. The VERY FIRST ride with it, I used it to help clear a log from the trail. Nice setup. I may try and find some longer wrap around straps to hook the carabiners to, as this would increase the useful range.
