Rx Smart Gear does it again with another long over-due overhaul of an old piece of training gear. The brand new Rx Smart Grips breathes some much-needed life into a vital piece of equipment that has remained unchanged for decades. Your performance will improve and your hands will thank you due to the following upgrades:
- Soft, durable leather is not bulky and requires no break-in time.
- Rough split leather texture holds chalk better.
- Larger palm coverage provides greater protection.
- Soft leather can be trimmed for a custom fit.
- Non finger hole design provides much needed protection for fingers
- Elastic finger loops keep grips perfectly in place.
- One-piece leather strap construction more durable than others.
- Smart Band elastic keeper tucks grips away when bare hands are needed.
- The inch and a half wide wrist straps doubles as excellent wrist support for lifts.
When measuring hand, use a ruler, start at the base of the palm and measure to the middle finger with your hand as flat as possible.
Best grips out right now.

Love how there is minimal material between my fingers and I love how I also get finger coverage. I also like being able to tuck them away. The reason I didn't give a 5 star rating is because I noticed one or the grips is shorter than the other. I also think they could call the large medium and then make some longer ones for larges. Overall this is the best grips out there right now and trust me when I say that because I've had and seen them all! These are top notch and deserve to be called "smart gear".
Big improvement over typical gymnastics grips

They work great for protecting your whole hand/wrist on things like strict ring muscle ups where the outer palm/wrist area would get exposed on other grips. I like the elastic storage over having the gymnastic grips flapping around on the back of your hands when you don't need them on other movements. My only concern was the finger loop stitching durability but the area getting worn down is toward the middle of the grip so these should last a while.

These are great grips. All the finger-through-holes grips and up somehow injuring my fingers - every time. (In fact, I'm still dealing with that now.) But these grips are great. The only minor complaint is that they ride up, and I purchased the large grips. But that's okay, better to ride up than fall off! And the stowaway band in front is good, although it kills precious seconds trying to stow the grips away.
We are very excited to announce the release of our newest product the Rx Smart Grip. This product has been in development for several years and we feel it is finally worthy to share with the public. If you are the type of athlete or fitness enthusiasts who does not like thick slabs of stiff leather that take weeks to wear in then you will absolutely LOVE the Rx Smart Grip. These were designed to take right out of the package, chalk it up and jump right on the bar. We made them wider than than the typical bar grip to give you more palm protection but the soft leather can easily be cut and sized down for a custom fit. The soft double split leather holds chalk better and is immensly more comfortable than traditional leather grips. We made them with seamless construction so the grip portion will not tear away from the velcro wrist strap. The wrist strap is made wider to double as additional wrist support during lifting movements like cleans and snatches. We added the revolutionary yet simple Smart Band Keeper that allows you to take the grips off your fingers and tuck them away during movements where bare palms are ideal such as handstand walks or rope climbs. At Rx Smart Gear we like to lead the pack by Evolving traditional equipment and let the rest copy or follow.
