This product includes two (2) replacement handles. . No Cable is provided.
Rx Jump Ropes use an industrial grade multidirectional swivel axis bearing system producing a near frictionless rotation. Our patent pending swivel attachment allows for the cable to reach top speeds or slow it down to suit the athlete’s needs. The Rx philosophy is that it’s not about PURE speed but rather the RIGHT speed to suit each individual athlete’s tempo and timing.
The ergonomically contoured handles are 6 inches long and 1 inch in diameter to allow the athlete to maintain the most natural and relaxed grip. This reduces fatigue commonly experienced in the forearms and shoulders. The contoured pinch points allow the athlete to gain pinpoint accuracy to maintain optimal rope shape while still allowing for a relaxed grip. Common in most racquet sports, each handle is hand wrapped with the most absorbent tape grip in the world.
Spiral Handle Set
The Spiral Technology is a grip innovation used in sports such as baseball, hockey and lacrosse. And now Rx Smart Gear has brought Spiral Technology to the jump rope world. This grip provides unparalleled handle traction allowing you to remain as relaxed as possible yet preventing the handle from slipping out of your grasp. The end result is less forearm and shoulder fatigue during your intense double under work outs. Save your grip stamina for moving the heavy loads or chest to bar pull ups. Make your double unders your recovery movement in your work outs! Currently used by several top CrossFit Games™ athletes.
When choosing a length for your Rx Jump Rope the safest approach is to measure a jump rope that you are already comfortable with and use that length when ordering. Below are recommendations to use if you are unsure of your length or you are looking to improve on efficiency.
Figuring out the right jump rope size can be a tricky task. If you are a beginner to intermediate skill level jumper (i.e. 0-50 double unders) it is important to begin with an approach that gives you a foundational starting point and then follows a progression for improvement just like any other high skilled movement. Choosing the correct jump rope size is actually a 2 part process: First, choose a length that correlates to your height. Second, adjust your positioning to fit that rope allowing adequate spacing overhead and underfoot.
The Rx Sizing Method is a progression based approach with the goal to ultimately place you in a rope length that produces efficient mechanics and positioning. The suggested length correlates to your height to provide an abundance of rope clearance overhead and underfoot yet not so much as to force poor positioning and inefficient movement patterns. The Beginner to Intermediate length recommendation should be viewed as your starting point and all efforts should be directed towards moving to a shorter rope length over time. A shorter rope length requires more compact positioning, which reduces fatigue in the larger muscle groups as well as produces a faster cycle rate per rotation. In essence, a shorter rope will allow you to perform more work faster with less energy expended.
RX Sizing Recommendation:
Beginner to Intermediate (0-50 Double Unders) Height Plus 3 feet . Example: 6 foot height plus 3 feet = 9 foot rope length
If you are an experienced jumper measure your current rope or choose a length you know works for you.
The chart below will provide specific length recommendations for Beginner to Intermediate jumpers. Please use the images below to assess your current positioning and make the necessary adjustments to your recommended rope length from the chart.

CHOOSE YOUR LENGTH: If a user is in a split range, it is recommended to size up (longer) for beginner or intermediate users and size down (shorter) for more advanced users.
