No Band-Aids Necessary

Recently, it has become a hazard to do double unders/attempts at the box due to the state of our jump ropes. Fear not, we have upgraded the jump ropes! We have purchased a brand new set of jump ropes, ordered a replacement set of ropes for the damaged ropes, AND an appropriate holder for the ropes.
So, in order for these ropes not to end up like the last ones, let’s store and care for them appropriately. With that being said, for optimum performance and to extend the life of these ropes, AVOID using them on concrete, asphalt, dirt, gravel or any other abrasive surface. Ideal surfaces are gymnasium floors, rubber coated/matted floors, or PVS matting. NEVER bend, kink, or tie the jump rope in a knot. Doing so will drastically reduce its efficiency and life span as well as void the warranty.
Lastly, there are two different weight/speed of ropes that need to be identified:
Buff 3.4 – Our second to heaviest cable weighing 3.4 ounces per 9 foot length (excluding handles). Our Dual Threat cable which provides tremendous feedback allowing the athlete to jump with a broader range of tempos from very slow to super fast. Ideal for beginners to gain a better feel for timing while jumping at slower tempos. Also a fantastic training cable for advanced jumpers looking for greater resistance and intensity in their training.
IDEAL FOR BEGINNERS TURNING LESS THAN 50 DU’s.
IDEAL FOR ADVANCED LOOKING TO INCREASE INTENSITY.
*These are the ones with the colored handles and colored ropes
Elite 2.6 – Our mid range weighted cable weighing 2.6 ounces for a 9 foot length (excluding handles). Our most all around utility cable offering a nice blend of light weight with increased feedback and response while it’s rigidity maintains a nice “horse shoe” shape while in motion. Recommended for jumpers who can already turn 50+ double unders.
IDEAL FOR INTERMEDIATE TO ADVANCED
