Due to strong customer demand the Carbon Winch range has gone ALL BLACK. 

If you ask us nicely, we will also change out the black hook for the colour of your choice (has to be in stock) at or before the time of dispatch only. 

The all new feature packed Ver 3 12000lb Winch from Carbon Offroad delivers a 4wd winch package boasting many extras to make the installation and use of your winch that much easier.

The Carbon Winch features a newly upgraded rating of IP68, so your river crossings and mud runs are stress free, featuring a breathable membrane style motor breather for heat expansion and contraction. The Carbon Winch gets your recovery done with ease by using the wireless or wired remote (both included) from the safety and convenience of your driver's seat.

IP68 meaning - Ingress Protection
6 - Can withstand dust and dirt
8 - Can be submerged under freshwater for 30 minutes up to 1.5m depth, but not during operation.

You want the reliability of a winch that will perform when you need it to, time after time.

The Carbon Winch is a proven performer with year on year sales growth and countless recoveries from the mud bogs of Tassie to the river crossings of the Cape. For peace of mind it's backed here in Australia by a class leading 5 year water ingress & electrical warranty and a lifetime geartrain warranty. We also stock a warehouse of replacement parts here in Australia to get you back winching if the need arises.

If you're capable with a few basic tools, installing a Carbon Winch is easy, with step by step instructions and many extras included to get the job done. We also thought of your safety by including an isolator switch with extra cabling, so when you're not using your winch it's safely turned off and no live power wires are at the front of your vehicle.

Mounting the control box is easy with a multi fit system that can either be mounted on the winch, above the winch drum or motor . Or with the bracket can be mounted to the vehicle or on top of your bullbar. As you know, "looks" are a big part of any 4x4 build, so we have included in your winch kit an ultra sexy CNC'd anodised alloy signature Carbon fairlead paired with our own robust designed hook that makes you stand out from the crowd. Weight is a serious consideration with all 4wd accessories, the Carbon Winch  is super lightweight at only 19.0kg

Carbon Winches 12K Winch is a 12000lb line pull winch and can meet the rugged demands of off-road and utility use in Australian conditions. It is designed to deliver the best value, reliability and service life for a winch user.

The Carbon Story

Carbon Winches are designed, engineered and tested by Australian Offroad Business - KPD Industries. A 4 year project began in 2012 to build a winch that would surpass all market options that were available at the time. After that, the Carbon Winch brand was launched in June 2016 and since then has developed a solid reputation for reliability, toughness and has been tested in some of the harshest environments in Australia and overseas including the USA, Iceland and the Middle East.

But in addition, we didn't stop there - We made the winch even better.
Many other products on the market simply didn't prove worthy in the Australian Outback including some very popular world renowned brands, so we built our own. A strong following in the Australian market developed with proven results across thousands of customers and 5 years on the market. A full redesign of the winch over a 6 month period between January and June 2021, results in the V2 CW-12K, a culmination of 5 years of using, supplying and receiving feedback from our customers and dealer network as we improved on many aspects of the original market proven winch design.
