The Tugger Tow Line
Welcome to the new generation of towing! This tow line uses 1/8th inch diameter new technology high-strength fiber, tested by an independent tester to break at 2,800 lbs. Using this fiber results in the lightest, most compact tow line available today. 16 feet long! A MUST if your buddy rides a… well, we won’t go there! It is also versatile and can be used for many different applications such as attaching items to your pack or hanging your bike from a tree when in bear country… all jokes aside, this is definitely something every rider should carry when riding. This fiber is not cheap and there are cheaper tow straps out there. The reason we made these is because we like to go on long rides in rugged terrain, and we want to be prepared without filling our packs with large and/or heavy items because it all adds up! This fiber is super strong, super light, and takes up very little volume in your pack for a tow line that has ~25% more length than our competition! And the entire tow line with bag weighs less than 3 ounces! The quick-link is included for your convenience to use if you have a Style 2 Front Tugger. Just leave the quick-link at home if you don’t.
IMPORTANT! The line WILL break at less than 2,800 lbs if you’re not smart about the way you use it. Going over sharp corners or severe bends will significantly reduce its strength. Please follow the directions below.
Secure the tow line to the bike that will be doing the towing (foot peg, frame, etc.) by looping the line through the ring at the end of the line (see photos for examples). Make sure the protective covering is contacting the bike, not the bare line!
Bike Being Towed
If you have a Style 2 Front Tugger, attach the quick-link to the front Tugger, then wrap the tow line around the quick-link 3-4 times to take the load, then up to your clutch hand. Ensure that if the towed rider loosens his clutch-hand grip, the tow line pulls free. This allows the towed rider to release the line at any time in case of trouble.
If you don’t have a Style 2 Front Tugger, wrap the line around the center of the handlebar a few times on the bike to be towed, then up to the clutch hand. Test to ensure that if the rider being towed loosens his clutch-hand grip, the tow line pulls free. This allows the towed rider to release the line at any time in case of trouble.
