The future of speed ropes is here and the future looks extremely fast. Never before has a speed rope been so highly anticipated by the general public or so highly sought after by more CrossFit Games athletes than the Limited Edition Extreme Velocity Optimized (EVO) Speed Rope. No expense was spared and no detail overlooked in developing this state of the art jump rope.
The EVO was in development for over one year with collaboration from top engineers and machinists on two continents. The goal was very focused - to create the fastest speed rope on the planet without sacrificing durability and reliability. The end result is a sleek and highly refined handle with optimal ergonomics and weight distribution and a swivel bearing system so smooth and fast it has been described as the Ferrari of speed ropes by many of the CrossFit Games athletes that helped with testing. It is a true marriage of form and function.
Each EVO handle is machined on one of the most advanced CNC machines from a solid piece of aerospace grade aluminum. Each handle is then anodized for a corrosion and abrasion resistant finish. The handles are carefully assembled with the tactile traction bands and the patent pending high tolerance, frictionless, dual-swivel bearing system. Finally, each jump rope is inspected and tested for quality and performance.
We are extremely proud to announce that the EVO speed rope is 100% Made in the USA and assembled in our factory in El Cajon, California.
Each EVO Speed Rope comes in gun metal anodized aluminum and is available with our Buff 3.4 coated cable all the way down to Speed Metal uncoated cable.
Cable weight descriptions can be found here https://www.rxsmartgear.com/cable-weight-descriptions/
Black Traction Bands and custom EVO carrying case are included.
*Due to the anodizing process color variation may occur
So worth it!!

On a good day I can hit 7 du consistently, on a great day I can hit 20, then be smoked for the rest of the wod . With this rope, not only did I pr with 34, overall I’m doing bigger and bigger sets with much less struggle. I know the description says for the advanced, but for someone that rides the double under struggle bus, it has seriously made an improvement. The only con is when you hit yourself, you really feel it.
Greatest rope EVER

I’ve used a ton of ropes but this is by far the best. My only complaint was that you can’t get multiple color handles, it only came in black. I guess I could swap out the friction rings but it would’ve been dope to have a different color handle.
It's that good

In short, this rope is a huge step up from the standard RX ropes and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be better with their DUs.
Here's the long review.
I've had 20+ unbroken DUs for about 9 years now. I've used the custom RX ropes for about 6-7 years, standard handle then spiral. I love the spiral handle because it rests in your hand allowing you to relax your grip so your hands and wrists to get fatigued. The EVO rope takes that benefit to a ridiculous new level.
The handle is light so the rope isn't weighed down. Plus.
The raised portions and countout of the handle allow you to grip it anywhere (yes, anywhere) and get DUs going quickly.
The bearing system is phenomenal. The standard RX rope has a really good bearing system that allows for a smooth, fast spin...but you feel and hear some friction. The EVO rope is nearly silent and smooth as butter when it spins. The bearing system makes for a much more smooth rope turnover with much less work needed from your wrist (to turn) and your hands (to grip). All of this means folks with DUs will fatigue much later than with other ropes and will be able to get more unbroken jumps.
I wasn't paid for this review. I saw the difference as soon as I unboxed it and waited until I had it for a few weeks through long and short workouts before I posted a review.
This rope will make a difference.
love the new rope

Recently upgraded my rope to the EVO. What a difference. Love the smooth and effortless action.
What the Limited Warranty Covers.
The aluminum handles of the Evo Jump Rope covered by this warranty are warranted to the original purchaser against manufacturing defects in workmanship and materials for the lifetime of the product. Moving parts such as internal shoulder bolts, head unit and split rings are warranted to the original purchaser against manufacturing defects in workmanship and materials for a period of one year from date of purchase. Parts subject to wear and tear such as cables, bearings and rubber o-ring grips are not covered by this warranty. Warranty coverage terminates if you sell or otherwise transfer the Evo Jump Rope.
Please note handles spin at different speeds and may produce a variety of spinning noises but those sounds do not affect the performance of the product and do not necessarily mean the product is defective.
What is not Covered. This warranty does not cover damage caused by accident, improper care, negligence, carelessness, normal wear and tear (such as to cables, bearings and rubber o-ring grips), tampering, abuse, misuse, misapplication, improper use, the natural fading or discoloration of the handles or cable over time, products that are lost or stolen, or if your Evo Jump Rope is used on concrete, asphalt, dirt, gravel or any other abrasive surface. Only original, unaltered and unmodified items and workmanship are covered. Modifications, alterations or improper or incorrectly performed maintenance or repair by anyone other than RX Smart Gear may void this warranty. No other warranties are expressed or implied other than what is specifically stated here.
Other RX Smart Gear jump ropes, equipment, bags, apparel (including hats and headbands) and accessories are not covered under this warranty. Our warranty is valid only when the Evo Jump Rope is purchased through us directly (via rxsmartgear.com or from our staff at an event or competition we are attending) or through an authorized reseller.
What we will do. We will inspect the Evo Jump Rope you return to us. We have sole discretion to determine manufacturer's defects. If your product or part covered by this warranty fails due to a manufacturing defect we will repair it without charge, or replace it, at our discretion, providing such defect, in our opinion, is due to faulty material or workmanship. Damage or parts not covered under warranty may be repaired or replaced for a reasonable rate (parts and labor) and a fee will be charged for return shipping.
How to Make a Claim for Warranty Coverage. In order to be eligible for service under this warranty, you MUST complete the warranty registration form located at www.rxsmartgear.com/evowarranty within 60 days of purchasing the Evo Jump Rope.
If something goes wrong with the Evo Jump Rope, and to file a warranty claim, you must first contact RX Smart Gear at email@example.com or by telephone (619) 655-3960 at our U.S. headquarters (number is not toll free, charges may apply) to request an “RA Number” to open a potential claim. This will enable us to validate the original purchaser and whether the warranty registration form was timely and validly completed and hopefully we will be able to address any issues prior to purchaser shipping the Evo Jump Rope to us.
If after the initial contact described above RX Smart Gear determines that it needs to inspect the Evo Jump Rope to determine if there is a manufacturer’s defect or not, the original purchaser may send it postage paid by purchaser with a brief description of the problem and the RA Number to:

All Rx Smart Gear products have been thoroughly inspected and found to be in proper operating condition upon shipment from the factory and are warranted to be free from any defect in workmanship and material that may develop.

Despite every effort to accurately duplicate each product's color when reproduced to our website, actual colors may vary. Due to monitor and/or video card differences, subtle variations in color and surface texture may not be fully revealed. Again, these are custom products and CANNOT be returned. Therefore you need to be certain that any slight variations occurring between the actual color, and the representation on our website, will be acceptable. Cable colors can vary within cable weights of the same color due to differences in the thickness of the outer coating.
Jump rope cables will wear out over time and will need to be replaced. Cable lifespan will vary depending on jumping surface, volume of use, technique and other factors.
