When travelling alone or as a small group the ability to be able to use a recovery aid like MAXTRAX will prove invaluable over time. MAXTRAX are reusable and as long as you follow the instructions and keep wheel spin to a minimum then they should last as long as you own them (dependant on use).

There is a reason why the MAXTRAX Recovery tracks are chosen by many 4×4 Adventurers, as well as Dakar and other rally teams. To add to this MAXTRAX are the Official Recovery Device of the Baja 1000. They really do let you Take the easy way out! An essential piece of Recovery Equipment that definitely has a place in the kit.
