The magic of our products are often their simplicity. And they don't have to be new products – some of our products are old ideas made new.
Take the humble skipping rope. Add a thin metal wire (instead of a rope) and you have a crazy, but effective, all round conditioning tool.
Here's the full story.
The Speed Rope is a standard skipping rope on speed. The thin wire ensures maximum speed can be generated, which means the rope is fast enough to circle the body more than once per jump. The CrossFit dudes call these double-unders (or triple-unders) and they're a big part of their training routines.
Because ten minutes of skipping is the equivalent of running a four minute mile. It's a tough workout! Typically, a few minutes skipping is enough to get the heart pumping.
It also has the advantage of being able to be performed in confined spaces. You only need a small space and you're set to go.
Also, proper skipping technique promotes better knee health. By pushing off from the balls of your feet, you reduce the repetitive shocks that are typically caused by running.
Bottom line? Speed rope skipping gives you a killer workout. Plus you get an endurance workout, mixed in with a coordination element and agility work with your feet.
A: Not a problem, our Speed Rope behaves like a normal skipping rope but is much quicker.
A: As it's a speed rope it's not heavy. Total weight is about 200g.
A: All things being equal it should be long enough for you. I'm 185cms and can still skip with 2-3 fingers above handle (on the wire).
A: No. They have a very simple fail free rotating collar
A: It would be touch and go. Simply send it back if it's not suitable Fiona.
A: Our Speed Rope has a plastic coated wire, so it takes a couple of goes to get the initial twists out but after that the weight of the wire pulls it straight which provides trip free skipping experience.
A: The Speed Rope is very easily adjusted. It's a simple screw that secures the wire to the handles and the wire can be easily cut with the "snipping" portion on a set of pliers.
A: Unfortunately we do not sell the parts individually.

The quality of equipment from Iron Edge is second to none. The site is easy to navigate and delivery to our regional area is super fast and efficient. The last purchase I made was a high handle trap bar which is great quality and the speed ropes are brilliant compared to ones I purchased elsewhere for the same price that broke upon first usage.
