Carbon Offroad 12 Tonne Kinetic Recovery Rope 9 metre x 24mm by Carbon

This rope is a Nylon66 (polyamide) double braided core and sheath rope with a specific gravity of 1.21. It is specifically treated with a special coating of the core fibre and sheath fibre which provides a 15% increase in abrasion resistance over similar ropes without the coating.

With an average diameter of 24mm, and a breaking strain in excess of 12,000kg, our Carbon Offroad Kinetic Recovery Rope is a true winner when it comes to offroad recovery performance. With a weight of 378gm per metre, it is lightweight but incredibly strong. Nylon is a dynamic fibre, when braided into a rope like ours it offers a high degree of stretch, allowing you to conduct a very safe, progressive recovery without huge shock loading on the vehicle. In fact, the more load you place on the rope, the more it stretches, here's the chart for your reference:

Strength Load 10% (1200kg) 20%
(2400kg)

Elongation 10.00% 14.00% 19.00%

Quality, Responsibility and Performance

Carbon Offroad are massively committed to safety. They take their commitment to manufacturing recovery gear very seriously. Prior to every batch of ropes being packed and shipped, they airfreight a sample quantity (about 5 ropes) into Australia and destruction test these ropes to determine the average breaking strength of the batch. This testing is done here, in Australia at a registered and certified NATA test facility. Upon request, batch testing certificates can be provided. 

Their ropes also meet the Australian guidelines for recovery strap manufacturing. Even though recovery "ropes" do not have to conform to this standard, they feel that as an industry leader and commitment to providing not only an excellent product but education for new users as well, you will find their Kinetic Ropes conform to this standard. They also include with every rope an instruction manual for safe use of our ropes. 

The rope comes in a handy carry bag, with ventilated mesh ends allowing easy storage and ability to breathe if it gets wet.

Synthetic Winch Rope FAQ

What is better, steel cable or synthetic rope?
While many enthusiasts have a personal preference over steel or synthetic rope, over the last few years synthetic rope has been adopted as the preferred choice, and is often mandatory in most major sanctioned off-road events. 

Below is a general list of synthetic vs steel pros and cons. It’s important to note that not all synthetic and steel cables are the same, and some will have different features and capabilities.

Synthetic Rope Pros

  • Strength: Dyneema rope is up to 15 times stronger than steel. 
  • Weight: Synthetic rope is much lighter than steel, and easier to carry and handle.
  • Handling: Synthetic rope doesn’t develop sharp burrs over time, which can be dangerous.
  • No rust: Steel cable can rust and in turn weaken if not kept dry and maintained. 
  • Safety: Synthetic rope doesn’t store up as much energy as a steel cable does, which means if it breaks it won’t become a lethal projectile and cause injury to you or damage your vehicle.
  • It’s flexible: Steel winch cable is prone to kinks which in turn makes it harder to spool up on the drum, further decreasing strength. It is to be noted that synthetic rope, if not handled carefully can knot.
  • It floats: If you get stuck in a mud-hole or body of water having this advantage can be a great help.
  • Repair: if it snaps it can usually be repaired in the field with proper braiding techniques.

Synthetic Rope Cons

  • Can be susceptible to UV exposure, heat, chemicals and abrasion.
  • Can hold water: this can add weight, and if you’re in a cold environment, can even freeze.
  • Need to be properly maintained. Grains of sand and dirt can bury themselves in the rope’s core and weaken it’s integrity. If you’re out in the mud and dirt it’s important that you take time to spool it out and wash it occasionally.
  • Expense. Synthetic cable is often the more expensive option.
 

What kind of fairlead should I use for a synthetic winch rope?

It’s recommended to use a hawse fairlead with a synthetic rope. If using a roller fairlead with a synthetic rope the rope can snag on the corners of the fairlead, as well as get cut and damaged on the sides of the sharp steel housing.
Regardless of the fairlead you choose, always ensure your rope doesn't come in contact with any sharp edges on your bumper and vehicle.

How do I know which rope to use with my winch?

Check your winch manual, or contact the manufacturer or agent you purchased it from. Most ATV winches will use rope with a diameter below 9mm or 10mm, while bigger winches will start at 10mm and up.

Do I need to wash my rope?

Yes. It’s recommended that you wash your rope with soapy water to remove any grit and debris which might have become stuck inside the fibres of the rope. Over time this dirt and grit can work it’s way in to the rope, damaging the core and weakening it from the inside out. 

Do I need a winch dampener with my synthetic rope?

Yes. While a synthetic rope doesn't store as much kinetic energy as that of a steel wire, it can still be of some danger when snapping under high tension. Depending where the break occurs and what item is attached to the rope, a flying hook, shackle or anchor point can still pose a significant threat to any person or vehicle near by.

Excellent & Honest Service

We try and provide the best pre and after sales service possible. If you have a question we’re here to help, and if we don’t know the answer we’ll tell you and then do our absolute best to find the answer for you. We’re also here to guide you to the best possible outcome for you. A lot of stores will simply try to up-sell you on the most expensive option. That’s not how we operate. We want to build a relationship with our customers, and the only way to do that is by being honest and direct.

4x4 Down Under is built on honesty and integrity. For example when you make a purchase with us we only charge your account once we confirm the product is ready for dispatch. Although we like to guarantee everything on our store is available we’re not perfect and mistakes do happen. If something turns out to not be available we’ll let you know immediately and you have the option to cancel your order or wait for more stock to arrive. Should you not want to wait the order is voided, and there’s no waiting a week to get your money back (it’s instant!).

We're Australians, and we like to support our fellow Australians, which is why all our products are sourced locally from the official Australian distributors. Nothing is imported directly and we don't stock any grey imports. This also means that all manufacturer warranties are fully honored by the brands themselves.

No Sales Gimmicks 

When you shop at 4x4 Down Under you don’t have to worry about:
  • Annoying and dishonest ’Sales Timers’ that simply reset every few hours and are there to coerce you into buying.
  • Dishonest “low stock” labels, another coercive sales gimmick.
  • False “John just bought a…” alerts. Our customer alerts (bottom left) are 100% true and we're proud of them.
  • Being bombarded by trust badges and labels everywhere you look that mean nothing. 
  • We don't spam! Your information is safe with us. It will never be shared or sold, or used to fill your inbox with garbage.
