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.

Nice recovery system

Awsome system, very easy to use. Great for towing or getting yourself out of a tight spot.

Well built and easy to use system.

This recovery system is a back and leg saving machine. It’s takes most of the effort out of lifting a fully loaded adventure bike when it takes a dirt nap and also will pull you out of slippery situations that you may find yourself in. It’s a must have if you plan on riding dirt bikes or adventure bikes solo in the backcountry.....

z drag

I haven't had occasion to use the z drag. It is designed well and uses quality materials and good construction. I don't look forward to being in a situation where I have to use the z drag, but believe it will do the mission.

Solid but of kit.

Looks and feels like a solidly made piece of kit. Sturdy webbing, chunky carabiners and all stowed in a nicely made bag with plenty of loops to secure it. But I have yet to use it in anger and hope it’ll stay that way.

Looks Solid!

Haven’t used this yet but the system seems well designed with an eye toward making it easy to deploy when needed. Watched a couple videos before ordering, and I’ll be happy to have it with me on future trips. Service was friendly and fast, shipping was free!
