The PVC Freestyle Rope is yet another example of Crossrope continuing to innovate, and their attention to detail really shows in their latest addition to their line of ropes. The rubberised and studded handles provide better grip compared to standard handles found on most PVC ropes, the 5mm rope has a nylon core (currently the only PVC rope available in Australia that has this feature) for greater durability and less kinking compared to solid core PVC ropes, and the two part twist connectors to lock the rope in place are so much easier to adjust compared to the typical connectors found in most PVC ropes – they even threw in an extra connector for good measure which is handy.
My only minor criticism about the rope was the way it was packaged. It was folded in on itself which resulted in some temporary kinks, but after several uses during some speedy workouts where I was rotating the rope at no less than 254 rotations per minute (#skipNshuffle), the rope loosened up and the kinks were gone!
I hope that Crossrope will be releasing these PVC ropes again in the future as a permanent product alongside their weighted ropes as they are a superior PVC rope compared to other equivalent ropes currently on the market.
Love the Crossrope gear. Makes such a difference having quality equipment to use.
Service from the AU team is ‘above and beyond’ as well. Had a slight problem with one of the handles on my new set and Kate got me sorted in a blink without any hassles at all. Easiest five star review I’ve given in a long time.
what can i say, this is the best skipping rope set i have owned during my whole fitness life.
this new technology is much better three times than the previous one Crossrope has had.
i give this set 110% quality.
I have been using the Lean Set for a couple of months learning the basic jump. I was one of those that jumped twice instead of once. I started at 5 mins as Jump Rope Dudes recommended, watched Dave Hunt, Crossrope CEO learner videos and have seen great improvement in correctly holding the crossrope and speed. I just put music and the timer on for 15 mins and away I go – it’s definitely a HITT workout. I can hear my heart beat when I’ve finished! I look forward to increasing my rope jumping to 30 mins and learning other variations…
Crossrope Australia were great in answering questions and keeping me updated with my order. Well worth the price.
Addicted to my Crossrope ropes! Especially love the handles and the fact that the ropes don’t tangle (so annoying with previous speed ropes!!). Bought the get lean set to get started, WODPrep and now waiting on my get strong set to arrive, can’t wait. My get lean set helped me get through the COVID-19 Iso, especially on those days when I didn’t want to train so i would do a jump rope challenge instead! I seriously think it shows in my fitness level on my return to crossfit now that the gyms are open; my legs are definitely stronger too!! Some people might find the cost restrictive but they are worth it! Great customer service too!! Thanks Crossrope Aus!!
Love my rope! Excellent customer service. Excellent quality rope and fun jumping. Best rope and handles I’ve ever had. No tangling at all. Thank you! I have the small size 1/2pound rope with the strength handles. Very happy with the set!!
I bought these ropes as my first proper jump rope set, hoping to use them regularly to boost my fitness and strength. The problem I have now is, I go to bed wanting to hurry up and get back to my ropes on the morning! I love both sets, as they give me different and effective workout capabilities. The strong ropes are tough, so you do feel the muscles pulsating! The fit ropes are great to get me going! Definitely one of the best investments I’ve made in my health and fitness! Well worth the outlay for superb ropes!
HIGHLY recommend Crossrope’s jump ropes!! 100% worth it.
I purchased their Get Lean set recently – only started learning how to jump rope.
I’m amazed by my progress so far. This is a COMPLETELY different jump rope experience to what normal skipping ropes feel like. I feel as though I am able to jump rope with ease, without the frustration that I used to feel when I was younger using cheap ropes. I feel as though I am getting stronger too.
The price is worth it – for those not sure of whether to just get a smaller set (Get Lean or Get Strong set), I’d recommend getting the Get Fit set instead (i.e. both the Get Lean and the Get Strong sets). It’s definitely worth getting both.
As for customer service, I am very impressed with how my purchases have been processed. Amazingly quick. The Crossrope Australia staff are great to deal with and have helped me by answering my questions I had about crossrope.
Download the Crossrope app – the workouts are fantastic. Keeping me motivated to stay fit during the self-isolation that’s required during this COVID-19 crisis. Feeling as though I’m in better shape now using the crossrope jump ropes! My extended family is now interested in the jump ropes too.
Also would advise new jump rope customers to look up youtubers like the Jump Rope Dudes and Jump 15 – they give great advice for beginners
The day I received the get lean set in the mail I was super excited to try it out and start following the app challenges, as written this I am currently working my way through the 14 Day Challenge.. at first I thought I may struggle with the weighted rope (white rope) but I felt I had lot more control and when switching from the white to the green rope with ease .. the green feels lighter then before… I enjoy how the app layout is and simple to use. It’s worth it 🙂
Amazing jump rope, love getting 2 different weight ropes, makes it SO much easier to perfect my technique and get a decent workout. Highly recommended.
Well I just started with the four pounder as part of my new fitness program so now I use between the half pound through to the four pounds jump rope and I have to say I love it and they cane me soon the five pounder will join the program and that will be awesome this is my challenge for this year 2020along with my gym ring workouts . The quality of these new additional jump ropes are super quality and already have people curious about them so will definitely pass the word on for cross ropes Australia to expand the new mode. Eventually I will upgrade from my first generation jump ropes to the newer style but for now the older generation ones are holding out perfectly,so cheers to you at jump rope Australian..
Love the new handles! Smooth & no more clicking! Crossropes are the best, excellent quality & customer service!
I bought the get lean set a year ago, and now the speed set. Another set of really good quality ropes, easy to use, I love the handles and how smooth they are and the versatility of the interchangeable ropes. Nicely surprised by how quickly they were delivered to NZ.
