Recovery Ropes

ShurTrax Recovery Ropes

The versatile ShurTrax recovery rope is the ideal tow rope for off-road, marine, or winter motorsports enthusiasts. These heavy-duty ropes are ideal for recovery missions yet unlike steel tow chains provide a soft touch that will not scour or damage vehicles. Constructed with a nylon core and an outer casing made of protective ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) this unique design creates a kinetic snatch rope that can stretch, store energy, and recoil. The urethane outer coating not only protects from surface abrasion, but it also is easy to handle, is resistant to water, and has built-in UV protection. The end lopes are engineered for extreme duty featuring mechanical insertion stitching and protective sleeves, this design makes for easy attachment in recovery settings especially when combined with our ShurTrax soft shackles.  These recovery ropes expand to absorb energy and then recoils to pull your vehicle out carefully yet efficiently out of mud, snow, or sand. This process is powerful and smooth, putting less strain on vehicle components and preventing damage to the vehicle.

The ShurTrax ropes come in a variety of lengths and thicknesses and are perfect for your recreational vehicle needs. The 3/4” diameter rope is designed for SUV’s, Jeeps and vehicles weighing up to 4,500 pounds including heavier Side by Sides with the 7/8” being better suited for light fullsize trucks and vehicles weighing up to 6,500 pounds. Finally, the 1-1/4” strap is best for full-size trucks, tractors, and SUVs as well as marine applications such as powerboats and sailboats weighing up to 12,500 lbs. and has a breaking strength of 52,000 lbs.
