When size and weight are serious factors in recovery kits, we are proud to offer this heavy-duty, small and lightweight alternative to a snatch block. This recovery ring weighs less than 1kg (2.2lbs), and has a total diameter of only 143mm, with an internal diameter of 96mm. Based on this size, it is almost a 1/4 of the weight of a similar rated snatch block. We suggest you combine the ring with either our Bound Soft Shackle or Sheath Soft Shackle, as both have been extensively tested and show the best results to minimise frictional load.
We deliberately are not the smallest ring on the market, but as we outline below, this ring was specially designed in consultation with winch rope fibre manufacturers to reduce wear and fatigue on the ropes being used in conjunction with the ring.
The Ezy-Glide Recovery ring must ONLY beused with soft shackles and synthetic winch ropes.
What makes the Saber Offroad Ezy-Glide Recovery Ring a true market leader? Here are the key advantages:
Engineered to Maximise Capacity & Minimise Rope Wear
When we looked at the design of the ring, we wanted to not only make sure it works well, it is light, small, but it must also protect the winch rope from fatigue leading to damage. We know that any tight bend in a rope under load decreases its strength and can cause damage, potentially leading to premature failure. In discussions with our winch line fiber manufacturers, we were advised that an 8:1 ratio for internal channel diameter (not outer diameter) is recommended. With our internal channel of 96mm (outer 143mm), we have a product ideal for winch ropes up to 12mm (1/2″).
Recovery Ring Internal
Minimum Suggested Diameter
This ring is one of only a few on the market with an internal channel design suitable for synthetic winch ropes of 10mm or above.
The channel profile is specifically designed to support the rope and reduce the flattening of the fibres under load.
Free Form Central Core
Unlike the majority of rings on the market, we have designed a free form central core to better support soft shackles and reduce friction in the system.
Designed with T6 Billet Aluminium, this ring will withstand forces in excess of the listed Working Load Limit (W.L.L) of 12,500KG.
Australian Designed & Tested
This ring has been extensively tested both mechanically (in only Australian NATA accredited facilities) and in the real-world to make sure it will perform when you need it most.
High-Grade Custom Bag
Our custom-designed padded bag also includes a convenient clip to attach to existing recovery kits.
