Kinetic recovery ropes can be used for a number of applications–everything from farm equipment to stuck vehicles. A kinetic rope has a number of uses, but one of the most important is to reduce shock loads when pulling stuck vehicles. Shock loads can develop when a standard recovery strap encounters a loading force in a short duration during a pull.
The design of this Kinetic Recovery Rope features unique characteristics that make it ideally suited for use in the Vehicle Recovery environment. There are a number of options available which can accommodate most vehicles.
It is recommended to seek training before using kinetic recovery ropes since they will behave differently than the same rope length in a static, standard recovery rope. Really, you should seek training before you plan on helping recover a stuck vehicle.
If you are doing a dynamic pull, remember you will need as much space as possible and it will be challenging on tight trails. This is a different technique than using a normal strap or tow strap.
There are also a number of other useful applications for a kinetic recovery rope in a total recovery system–you should always have one in your kit.
Which of the Safe-Xtract Kinetic Recovery Ropes is Right For Me?
There a several different models of the Safe-Xtract Kinetic Recovery Rope.
Make sure you choose the right one for your application. If the rope is too light you can potentially overstretch it (or shock load it) and exceed the breaking strength. If it is too heavy, you might not be able to stretch it and gain the effect you need (or even cause damage to the mounts).

Features of the Kinetic Ropes
Each recovery rope that we offer, from ones used for small vehicles to bigger ones for pulling a large SUV or trucks, in good condition, will offer superior performance than the kinetic energy recovery rope products from other companies.
Constructed in the USA using top-tier Double Braid Nylon. Military-approved. Certified Berry Amendment and Buy American Act compliant.
For maximum energy transfer efficiency, a good compression design enables up to 20% stretch under nominal load (30 percent stretch at the maximum load) for optimum transmission of power.
To confirm the strength rating, the product was tested in the factory under actual load. These kinetic recovery ropes far exceed military specs.
Proprietary fluorescent Neon Orange fiber lock coating possesses high durability, is UV resistant, and greatly reduces water absorption when used in wet or otherwise adverse weather conditions like snow and sand. They are also abrasive resistant.
HARD DIPPED EYES
Double-dipped urethane polymer coating on the eyes allows for this kinetic energy rope to take years of abuse.
SERIALIZED DATA TAG
One of the most overlooked other options on recovery gear is a tag that includes vital safety data about the product. Ours includes each kinetic rope’s Minimal Tensile Strength and a unique serial number linked to every production step for purposes of traceability.
Hundreds of Safe-Xtract Kinetic Recovery Ropes are now in service with US Military SOCOM units, and they have been added to the list of US Military Vehicle Program of Record components. These kinetic ropes will out-perform every time.
The Safe-Xtract Recovery App (Android and Apple iOS versions available) and the Safe-Xtract Training Program work with these kinetic recovery ropes and are specifically designed around them. Users should seek vehicle recovery training in the appropriate recovery technique for any recovery equipment – visit https://etservicesconsulting.com/offroad for more information.
