GET A GRIP
WITH IRONMAN 4×4 RECO-TRAKS, BY TRED
If you’re not sporting a bright set of recovery tracks… are you really even 4WDing?
Of course you are, and you’re also more likely to be camping too, potentially much closer to the track or the ocean than you had originally planned, because that’s where your car got bogged. But think of the memories you’ll be making!
‘Ah, remember that time my car almost got swallowed by the Pacific Ocean, what a time!’
We love where our 4WDs can take us, and you should feel confident enough to explore the beautiful sandy beaches and tracks of the High Country. Off road adventures DON’T need to include THIS level of adventure, so be smart about it and include in your vehicle kit-out a set of well-designed recovery boards. (Like Ironman 4×4’s new Reco-Traks, by TRED)
SORRY, WHAT ARE RECOVERY BOARDS?
Recovery boards are designed with one simple purpose in mind; to introduce a firm and grippy surface between your vehicle’s tyres and the track’s surface (or lack thereof). Most commonly, recovery boards are brought out (usually in the pouring rain or stinking hot sun) when you’ve lost all forward (or rearward) momentum. By placing them under two or more tyres you can create a surface that allows your vehicle the grip and traction it needs to gain momentum and get moving again.
WHEN SHOULD YOU CARRY RECOVERY TRACKS, AND HOW MANY DO I NEED?
‘When shouldn’t you?’ would be a simpler question. Realistically, you can’t possibly know what the track you are about to drive down is going to be like, until you’ve driven down it. If there is any chance of moisture on the track, or if you’re planning to drive on sand then recovery tracks are a great idea. Recovery tracks are sold in pairs, we always recommend at least one pair for a vehicle and at least two pairs for a vehicle with trailer. That said, for the best results, one pair per axle is a safe bet!
