Extreme winter performance for professionals.

For more than a decade Z®-Chain has been the winter traction product choice for police, fire, ambulance and other professional fleets throughout North America. Z®-Chain’s fast installation, aggressive traction performance and extreme durability simply out-class all other options. Z®-Chain was originally designed for police departments and emergency fleets, but with its high performance features, skiers and other demanding users have found Z®-Chain to be the best winter traction product available.

Inside every package of Z®-Chain you will find clear, step-by-step installation and removal instructions, as well as waterproof gloves. Replacement cross members are available through some retailers.

Chain tensioners SHOULD NOT be used.

Z®-Chain doesn’t require chain tensioners, so it's the perfect choice for customers with alloy, protruding wheels, or wheel covers, as chain tensioners can scratch these types of wheels.

Outside Fastening System

The unique fastening system reduces fly-off, provides less road impact and greatly extends the life of the chain.

Inside Fastening System

The inside fastener provides the same benefits as the outside fastener, reducing fly-off, and providing less road impact for a longer lasting chain.
