What's the deets on Crawler Winch Ropes and Soft Shackles?
Crafted from UHMWPE, our synthetic winch ropes are not only robust but also heat-resistant, boasting a rating up to 293 degrees Fahrenheit.

To safeguard against the elements, all our ropes come equipped with a UV coating, offering protection from sunlight and enhancing their longevity.

Trust in Crawler Offroad for top-notch products designed to withstand the challenges of your off-road adventures.

So what about Kinetic Ropes?
Crafting a quality rope involves careful consideration of various factors. At Crawler Offroad, transparency is key. Unlike some companies, we openly share that certain practices can compromise the breaking strength of ropes.

Take colored ropes, for instance. Some manufacturers may opt for dyeing or coating processes. Dyeing, while cost-effective, weakens the rope. On the other hand, coating not only introduces vibrant colors but also shields the rope from the elements without compromising its strength.

At Crawler Offroad, all our ropes undergo a protective coating process. Our choice of double-braided nylon over single braid ensures superior durability against wear.

Trust in Crawler Offroad for meticulously crafted ropes designed to excel in performance and longevity.

What is the 3G warranty?
3G means "Great Gear Guarantee"
Crawler Offroad proudly stands behind our 3G warranty — the 'Great Gear Guarantee.'

If your gear, built for the off-road lifestyle, doesn't meet our high standards under normal use, snap a photo of the damage, send it over, and we'll replace it free of charge.

It's the 3G promise, ensuring your off-road adventures are backed by the best gear, so you can feel good about every adventure with Crawler Offroad.

Why Choose Crawler Offroad Kinetic Ropes:

At Crawler Offroad, we take pride in kinetic ropes that surpass industry standards. Understanding the intricacies of rope construction, we prioritize transparency to provide you with top-quality products. Here's what sets our kinetic ropes apart:

  • Enhanced Breaking Strength: Unlike some competitors, we don't compromise on breaking strength. Some companies engage in practices that lower the breaking strength of their ropes, but at Crawler Offroad, we maintain uncompromised strength to ensure the reliability of our kinetic ropes.

Choosing the Right Kinetic Rope:

Selecting the appropriate kinetic rope depends on various factors, primarily your vehicle's weight and the intended use of the rope. Use the chart below as a helpful guide to determine the ideal kinetic rope for your specific needs. Keep in mind that having more strength than you need is preferable to not having enough. Additionally, consider the type of off-roading activities you engage in, as different terrains can impact the static weight of your vehicle differently. For instance, mud significantly increases static weight compared to rocks or sand.

Understanding Kinetic Rope Strength at Crawler Offroad:

Curious about the breaking strengths of our kinetic ropes and how they compare to competitors? Here's a breakdown of why our approach stands out:

  • Strand Configuration: Some manufacturers opt for a 12-strand single braid design, which often results in a higher breaking strength for a comparable size. However, at Crawler Offroad, we prioritize longevity and durability.

  • Double Braid Advantage: Our kinetic ropes feature a double braid construction, offering a balanced combination of strength and resilience. While single braid ropes might boast higher breaking strengths, they tend to fray easier and wear out faster over time.

  • Extended Lifespan: Choosing our kinetic ropes ensures a longer lifespan, providing you with 2-3 times more usage compared to single braid alternatives. Our ropes are engineered to withstand the rigors of off-road adventures, offering reliability and longevity.

For an in-depth comparison between single and double braid designs, check out the video below to see why our double braid kinetic ropes are the preferred choice for lasting performance. Trust Crawler Offroad for ropes that excel in both strength and endurance.
