Silky Zubat Saw


Let’s face the truth. The inexpensive folding saws that we buy to help get us out of a bind are terrible, and we all hate using them.

A few years ago we started doing a lot of early season dirt biking so we frequently needed to cut a bunch of trees that had fallen across the trail. We immediately went in to Savoy Equipment to see what they had and we walked out with our first Zubat 300.

It’s been a love affair ever since. Now we have more saws that riders as some of us like to keep them installed on the outside of our dirt bike packs.

Although not folding, the saw fits into our backpacks nicely as it is about the same length as our avalanche probes.

The Bottom Line > This things rips through wood like you would not believe.
