The best skipping rope Crossfit, will ultimately be a speed rope. These usually have either plastic or metal handle, feature a ball bearing moving part & a metal/steel wire rope. The point of having a ball bearing moving part is to allow the rope to spin at a higher velocity making it easier for the athlete/user to perform the double under. The reason why the skipping ropes feature a slim steel wire rope is for a number of reasons:
- The steel wire is hard wearing,
- Steel wires is durable and will last a long time
- Steel wire cuts through the air allowing less resistance
Speed ropes usually have changeable parts. So if for example the wire rope snapped you can easily buy a replacement for this. Replacement skipping rope wires can be purchased from a number of different online stores, but we have found the best quality one to come from a company called gasp fitness. There products seem well priced and come with warranties. There are not many companies that sell skipping ropes which honour a product guarantee or warranty.
