If you're like us, when it comes time to pick up a jump rope, you're not going to just order the first thing you find on Amazon. For the discerning athlete, we recommend Kalon's small batch hand made jump ropes, designed to grow more beautiful with age. This one is made with domestic Ash (unfinished) with leather wrapped handles and hand-stitched wax linen thread. The cables come in two weights: resistance or speed. The speed cable is a thin and light, allowing for very fast rotations. The resistance cable is a thicker, heavier cable that is slightly more difficult to move than the speed cable. As such it makes for a more challenging cardio workout. If you’re looking for max reps in the shortest amount of time without burning out, then the speed cable is your go to. If you’re looking to tire yourself out as fast as possible, then you’ll want to use the resistance cable. Please note this item is final sale. Please allow 5-7 business days for jump rope orders to process.
