INTRODUCING The Limited Edition “Zeus” rope

This custom Rx Jump Rope is one of a kind.  Weighing 8.6oz (244g) per 9ft(2.74m) section of cable.  This rope comes in limited cable colors and is only available with Special Edition Black Ops Spiral Handles with Zeus logotape. The Zeus cable is the perfect weight that still provides a cardio based workout infused with the resistance training of weight lifting. This cable was carefully selected to ensure the user can still perform fluid double unders with the highest amount of resistance yet not alter the jumper’s technique or mechanics. Can you tame the Gods?

This cable is not available by itself as it cannot be used on standard Rx Jump Rope handles. For this reason it cannot be exchanged like other Rx Replacement Cables.  This cable was designed for intense jump rope training.

Rx Jump Ropes use an industrial grade multidirectional swivel axis bearing system producing a near frictionless rotation. Our patent pending swivel attachment allows for the cable to reach top speeds or slow it down to suit the athlete’s needs.  The Rx philosophy is that it’s not about PURE speed but rather the RIGHT speed to suit each individual athlete’s tempo and timing.

The ergonomically contoured handles are 6 inches (15.2cm) long and 1 inch (2.5cm) in diameter to allow the athlete to maintain the most natural and relaxed grip.  This reduces fatigue commonly experienced in the forearms and shoulders.  The contoured pinch points allow the athlete to gain pinpoint accuracy to maintain optimal rope shape while still allowing for a relaxed grip.  Common in most racquet sports, each handle is hand wrapped with the most absorbent tape grip in the world.

Rx Jump Ropes are custom sized to each individual athlete’s height, for this reason please refer to the instructional link or video here

All Zeus Ropes are Black handles / Translucent Black Cable or Translucent Blue Cable.

How to Size your Rope

Sizing-ChartRx Smart Gear follow two basic principles with regard to jump rope length; The first is “static” rope length. That’s the actual length of a rope not in motion. The second is “dynamic” rope length. That’s the rope in motion where the athlete’s mechanics can influence the effective length of the rope.

Rx Smart Gear’s sizing chart will attempt to guide you to an ideal “static” rope length. This rope length is intended to fit a specific posture while jumping. That posture can be described as follows. Starting with your anchor point, which is your hand placement. Hands should be positioned at your midline axis and right at your frontal plane. Your hands can slide in or out along this axis depending on your shoulder’s external rotational flexibility.

Your elbows should be relaxed down by your side with your shoulders as disengaged as possible. Again external rotational flexibility may dictate whether your elbows need to pull backwards in order to keep your hands from shifting forward of your frontal plane. Once we have your anchor point isolated at your midline axis we then look for your jump rope to have an even turnover passing over head and in front of the toes with a minimum of 12” clearance at both points.

If we’ve met all of those standards then we’ve placed the athlete in the best possible position to have balance and symmetry between their body and their rope. It will now only depend on the athlete’s efficiency of mechanics to dictate their “dynamic” rope length

When viewing the sizing chart please locate your height while wearing your normal work out shoes. Then see the indicated rope length recommended for that height. That is the measurement you would select when purchasing your Custom Rx Jump Rope.
