Cable Weight Descriptions
Hyper 1.3 – NOT RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS.
Aircraft grade cable with PVC coating. Our lightest offering weighing only 1.3 ounces for a 9 foot length (excluding handles). Most comparable to traditional speed cables. The PVC coating does not retain memory and therefore uncoils nicely. This cable can produce the fastest cycle rate therefore the athlete must be extremely proficient at double unders. Recommended for advanced jumpers who can already turn 75+ double unders.
Ultra 1.8 – NOT RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS
Aircraft grade cable with PVC coating. Our second lightest cable weighing 1.8 ounces for a 9 foot length (excluding handles). The Ultra 1.8 is considered our “hybrid speed cable” due to its light nature while offering more feedback to the athlete. The increased resistance allows the athlete to turn the Ultra 1.8 cable at a slightly slower cycle rate than the Hyper 1.3 yet triple unders are still plentiful. Recommended for advanced jumpers who can already turn 60+ double unders.
Elite 2.6 – IDEAL FOR INTERMEDIATE TO ADVANCED
Aircraft grade cable with PVC coating. 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.
Buff 3.4 – IDEAL FOR BEGINNERS TURNING LESS THAN 50 D/Us.
IDEAL FOR ADVANCED LOOKING TO INCREASE INTENSITY.
Aircraft grade cable with PVC coating. Our third 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.
Poseidon 4.1 – IDEAL FOR BEGINNER TO ADVANCED and/or MASOCHIST
The Poseidon cable weighing 1/4 pound per 9ft section. Is our entry level heavy jump rope which provides more feedback than the average jump rope giving the athlete an added boost of intensity to any workout. If you are looking to tame the gods but aren't quite ready for the wrath of our heavier options Poseidon is a great place to start. This rope comes in limited cable colors and is only available with Special Edition Black Ops Spiral Handles with Poseidon logo tape.
Zeus 8.6 – IDEAL FOR INTERMEDIATE TO ADVANCED LOOKING FOR A GOOD PUMP
The Zeus cable weighing 1/2 pound per 9ft section was developed to add intensity to your double unders. When exercises become easy they're proven to no longer affect the body. Adding resistance to double unders can completely change a work out as demonstrated in the 2016 CrossFit Games when heavy double unders with a rope inspired by the Zeus rope were first performed. The Zeus cable will develop stabilizer muscles while still provide a cardio based workout infused with the resistance training of weight lifting. This cable was carefully selected to ensure the user can still perform fluid double unders yet not alter the jumper's technique or mechanics. Can you tame the Gods? This rope comes in limited cable colors and is only available with Special Edition Black Ops Spiral Handles with Zeus logo tape.
Hades 12.1 – IDEAL FOR ATHLETES LOOKING AT UPPING WORKOUT INTENSITY
Here comes Zeus's big brother Hades boasting a 3/4 pound cable per 9ft section. Hades is stepping up to challenge your high intensity cardio/strength workout with enough resistance to punish your weaknesses. Why perform and exercise that does not challenge you? If double unders become easy for you then take it to the next level with heavy double unders. This cable was carefully selected to challenge the athlete to focus on ideal technique and mechanics or have their inefficiencies exposed. Can you tame the Gods? This rope comes in limited cable colors and is only available with Special Edition Black Ops Spiral Handles with Hades logo tape. Only sold in sizes 8'0", 8'4", 8'8" and 9'0".
