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.

Quality Products

As always Green Chile delivers the finest products on the market. The Z-Drag Recovery System gives me the confidence to tackle the trail solo. With this recover system I can self rescue. I will not hit the trail with out it on my bike. Thanks for putting in the hard work to produce quality products.

Solid and well thought through

Recently purchased this kit and I am impressed with the quality. I have not had to rescue myself, but have done a practice setup just to get my head around it.
Will need to find a suitable compact dust proof bag to store the kit in whilst on the bike, as the supplied pouch isn't sealed and dust/spray has entered at both ends.
