Thick 1.3-pound jump rope (circa 500g) for adding heavy resistance to your jump rope workouts.
NEW upgraded handles include dual-ball bearings for smoother spin. This also fixes an issue with the cord rubbing and wearing at the handle.
Why this rope? If you want a quicker cardio workout and a heavier burn in your shoulders and forearms. You will definitely feel the burn using this rope for even short amounts of time.
- 12mm diameter hollow core PVC rope
- Industrial grade 4.75" long dual-ball bearing handles (rope is secured in handle with a metal bolt).
- Dual ball bearings in handles improve spin and eliminate PVC wear at handle.
- 8ft: recommended for heights 5'10" and under
- 9ft: recommended for heights 5'10" - 6'5"
- 10ft: recommended for heights 6'5" and taller
Note - These ropes are not adjustable. The above recommendations are the best estimates to cover a multitude of heights, body types and experience levels. If you are experienced and have good form with your elbows back and have your hands close to your hips, then you will likely benefit from using the above chart or even going down in size if you are in and around a height boundary. Beginners may want more room for error and go for a size higher but this will potentially lead to overly long ropes and thus impact form if there is too much excess rope. Please also consider measuring your current rope (if you have one) to gauge the most appropriate length as some individuals have their own personal needs and preferences with length. I talk more about my own sizing beliefs and principles more here.
Please also be aware, the 1.3lb weight is the weight of the 9ft with handles - the weight is different for different lengths. See weights below (incl handles):
This rope is therefore similar to a 1lb rope in context of the wider jump rope market.
- Quicker cardio workouts
- Build forearm and hand strength
- Engaging should/arm/core/back muscles that don't normally get a workout while jumping rope
- Improving single under and double under strength and endurance in shoulders
⚠️ Jump ropes can and will sting on impact! Use at your own risk ⚠️

1.3lb Heavy Muay Thai Rope 2.0
I have used it twice using a Matt and it’s already worn down. Don’t listen to size advice far too small. Waste of money
Feels good to use, easy to unkink, comfortable handles. If your technique is good and you try hard youll get a crazy workout and burn from this, 100% dope rope.
Good quality although takes time to straighten out. Probably need to have a lighter rope also if planning cardio workouts as arms get v tired with this rope!
Great for switching up the sessions - gets extremely stiff in the cold weather, but haven't tried other weighted ropes to know if there would be a difference. V hard work, gets the arms going.
