Patented Speed Rope Technology:
Designed and patented by 5-Time World Jump Rope Champion, Molly Metz, the R1 Speed Rope has REVOLUTIONIZED the sport of jump rope with ultrafast dual-bearing, pivoting-eye technology. Several WORLD RECORDS have been shattered by jumpers who have used this rope, and many elite CrossFit athletes have found this to be their rope of choice at the CrossFit Games.
Perfect for Quick Double Unders in CrossFit:
This rope is perfect for advanced jumpers who have mastered double unders, triple unders, and speed-step jumping. It is certainly not the rope to be learning jump rope skills on (for that use the R1.5 Hybrid Speed, R2 Trainer, or R3 Warrior ropes). The patented bearing system in the handles makes them virtually friction-free, and the pivoting eye allows for ANY angle of hand motion, making this rope virtually untouchable in speed comparisons. The cable is made of uncoated stainless steel, and the handles are made of a ultra-durable nylon, making this rope great for indoor use. Not recommended for outdoor use. Outdoor use decreases the longevity of this rope and can cause fraying.
