This Viking Offroad Rigging Line is very unique in it's construction. Made from Dyneema, the same material as Viking offroad's winchlines, it is a much stronger line by weight than a traditional strap. To protect the rope, Viking Offroad uses a 7/16"-1/2" braided polyester jacket which is covered with a high quality heavy-duty cordura nylon sleeve. It provides a high degree of protection for the static rope and also provides a cushion protecting tree bark from damaging cuts when using the line as a "Tree Saver".
A key safety factor when choosing a rigging line is to utilize a line with minimal stretch characteristics reducing the possibility of snap back in case the line breaks. There is an advantage for using Recovery Rope with high stretch characteristics for dynamic towing or snatching, but never for static winching.
One of the keys to safety in winching is to minimize any stretch between hitch points. Utilizing a low stretch synthetic Viking Winchline and Viking Tree Saver minimizes stretch between these points, thus minimizing the risk of potential damage.
Viking Offroad's Rigging Lines double as winchline extensions and are useful with attaching to vehicles where recovery points are not available. They are also excellent for overturned verhicles.
