The question is:What do you expect from a jump rope?
Our 4 models are designed for different types of athletes. Since the beginner that doesn't know if CrossFit is his life sport to the best athlete in the world.
For the beginners we have the ABS plastic rope, with a bearing is perfect to start and not invest much. If you're looking for something more than a jump rope, the ABS 2.0. Apart from its design, they have double bearing to go faster and become a Jedi of the Double Unders.
May the strength (and patience) accompany you in your jumps.
In the last step we have Anna and Bee. Anna designed to add weights and improve your grip and jumps, Bee designed for those looking for performance, is light as a bee hummingbird and very fast.
The aluminum jump ropes have the advantage that they do not break if a dumbell falls on them. The plastic can break. Other than that there are no big differences in durabilty, reliability, lightness, ...
Aluminum double-bearing jump ropes are faster than plastic ones. This happens because the aluminum design is adjusted to microns and the bearings do not have any slack, which translates into more speed.
By the way, we have not yet been able to resolve the lashes issue. It is possible, that even with our jump ropes you take some. Sorry.
The jump ropes suffer almost as much as we do: We throw them to the ground, we step on them, we put them in the bag with the sweaty clothes, we wind them up in any way, we hit them with our legs (they also suffer in a lash)...
They don´t need pampering and fondling, but a couple of times a year a little cleaning and a bit of grease for the bearings is not a bad idea.
She's Hannah Caldas, 7-times Regional athlete doing some triples
"Si tu veux les doubles, pratique les doubles. Si tu veux les triples..." After some hair fiasco, I finally got it under control and got to practice triple unders for the first time in 3 or so years! I got to say, the rope makes ALL the difference (Bee Rope from @picsil_sport 👌🏻). And as I usually tell my athletes "if you want doubles you must practice doubles", so if you want triples... you know it! Will be practicing a few times a week and see how I progress. I'll take 5s and 4s for now, especially after a workout with 60 bar muscle ups!
