The Elite Skipping Rope is the superior incarnation of the skipping wire.

Most people will have tried jumping rope at some stage. Few people make it a significant part of their workout regimen however, other than boxers and schoolchildren.

In addition to providing a rigorous cardiovascular workout, it builds the strength of joints and ligaments (especially in the ankles) and increases agility and proprio-reception. It also has great carryover into running.

The other benefit of skipping is that it can be performed in a small space without moving anywhere other than up and down, as well as using a low-fi piece of equipment that requires little storage space or maintenance.

The skipping rope has traditionally been either leather or plastic. Both materials tend to degrade rather quickly – as most things do when they are struck against the floor a couple of hundred times a minute. Wire may sound unconventional but as far as durability is concerned, it can’t be beaten. This comes with the added benefit that wire cuts the air more effectively than either plastic or leather.

The Elite Skipping Rope is the superior incarnation of the skipping wire.

Heavier wire provides a better feel, meaning that you get a better sense of where the wire is in space as you’re moving. The action of the rope has been improved further by the addition of bearings in the reinforced handles, which also increase the speed. This makes all the difference when you’re trying to spin out twenty-plus double-unders in a row. The reinforced handles are made from glass-filled nylon, which is guaranteed to never break – even if stepped on. The wire itself is sheathed in nylon and has been treated to remain tangle-freeready to go, straight out of the pack. It will suit a user up to 6’6” and is easily adjustable with a Philips head screwdriver.

3. Engineering

At Iron Edge we employ experienced and qualified engineers to design, test and then source the best manufacturers of all our equipment. Up until 2017 we manufactured in-house, but market pressures forced us to move manufacturing overseas. However we weren’t going to compromise on the quality and structural integrity of our products, so after rigorous research, we’ve been able to partner with some of the industry’s best and most experienced equipment manufacturers. In many ways they are more advanced and sophisticated than our in-house work shop, so you can be assured that the quality of all our products meet the same high standards and are worthy of the Iron Edge brand.

Fortunately we do, drawing on our extensive experience dealing with Australia's best coaches, athletes, sports scientists and exercise physiologists.
