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 very 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.

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!

Z-DRAG RECOVERY SYSTEM

I have only opened my z-drag recovery system and I looks like a quality built 4 shive block And tackle system. I did have a chance to use one pulling a BMW R1200GS up a loose incline and found the z-drag very helpful getting the massive bike up the hill.
