The Crossrope System is a high quality, high performance jump rope system. Here are some tips and suggestions for proper use, care, and maintenance of your Crossrope.
It is recommended that you avoid storing your ropes in cold temperatures or direct sunlight. The cold temperatures can cause the nylon and PVC coating to become stiffer and may reduce the durability. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may cause the coating to harden. It is fine to store your ropes by coiling or hanging. If they are coiled, you may need to pull the rope taut prior to jumping if it retains excessive curvature.
Quick Handles 2.0
These handles are very smooth and have high quality, encased, free spinning ball bearings. They are intended primarily for use with the Sprint, Speed, Stamina, Explode and Power cables though they are also fully compatible with the Strength and Titan cables. Though they are rust resistant, keep the handles and bearings away from water and moisture.
Rugged Handles 2.0
These handles are very smooth and extraordinarily strong. They are also premium quality, encased ball bearings, but do not spin freely because of an internal lubricant that ensure maximum life of the ball bearings. They are intended primarily for use with the Titan, Strength, Power, Explode and Stamina cables though they are also fully compatible with the Speed and Sprint cables. Though they are rust resistant, keep the handles and bearings away from water and moisture.
The cable core of all seven ropes not only enhances speed and performance, but makes breaking the rope virtually impossible, particularly with the heavier cables. The outer protective coating on the cables will undergo natural wear and tear, but the ropes are still functional even if the cable becomes exposed as long as you cover the exposed area with heavy duty tape or protective material. For safety reasons, do not jump with exposed cable. In order to extend the life of the protective nylon and PVC coating, do not store your ropes in extreme hot or cold or in direct sunlight. This may make the coating susceptible to cracking.
Sprint / Speed / Stamina / Agility
These 3 lightest cables in the Crossrope series are nylon coated galvanized steel cable. Nylon is a very strong and durable material that will extend the life of your cable. It is also a stiffer material which will create a more consistent jumping arc and reduce the likelihood of outer toe strikes. However, since it is a stronger, stiffer material it can maintain a slightly coiled curvature, particularly right out of the package. Simply connect the rope to a set of handles and pull it tight when the bottom is anchored beneath on of your feet. As you start jumping, the stiffness should have no negative effect. Between uses, it is fine to coil or hang your ropes.
Explode / Power / Strength / Titan / Intensity
These 4 heaviest cables in the Crossrope series are PVC coated galvanized steel cable. They have much thicker coating than the lighter cables and the PVC is a more flexible material. However, it is not quite as durable as nylon. Between uses, it is fine to coil or hang your ropes.
