Best Jump Rope

The jump rope is a pretty impressive piece of exercise equipment for how simple it is and to the inexperienced person it may seem as though a jump rope is merely just a a jump rope. However, this could not be further from the truth as there are many defining factors that make one jump rope better than another. These jump ropes have all been chosen as the best because of their impressive defining factors like quality manufacturing materials, bearing systems that keep them turning smoothly, and a few X factors like adjustability and innovative grips for better and more comfortable holds.

Rx Smart Gear Jump Rope

There is no other jump rope like the RX Jump Rope because it is completely customizable to your exact fitness needs. There's no need to mess around with adjusting the cord because you can order the perfect length for your height. This is also the only jump rope on the market that gives you an option of cable weight to perfectly match the jump rope’s intended use. Both the handles and the rope cover are customizable in tones of different colors and patterns to show the users style and really stand out. The handles don’t just look cool either as their spiraled texture are soft on the hands but offer the perfect amount of grip. The multi-directional axis bearing allows this rope to turn in any direction almost as if there were no rope there at all. With all of these great features one would think that RX Jump Rope has to skimp somewhere, but they really don’t; if there were a downside to this jump rope it would be the price, but it is well worth what you'll be paying for it.

Buddy Lee's Aero Speed Hyperformance Jump Rope with EXTRA Replacement Cord

Buddy Lee is easily the most famous jump roper of all time so it only makes sense that one of the best jump ropes of all time would have his name on it. The patented swivel bearing technology not only makes this rope fast, but prevents it from catching or tangling. The Aero Speed rope is adjustable to suite most adults as well as pretty easy to adjust. The PVC cord not only swings super-fast, but it's also designed to be easy on wood and rubber gym surfaces. The handles are made of a solid aluminum and covered with foam which helps you maintain grip without added fatigue. One of the many features that makes this jump rope special is the bearings can be replaced to infinitely extend the life of the rope; however, it does require a special tool for this which can leave you out of luck if you lose it. Another fun feature which makes this item unique it's available in multiple colors to match your personal style.

Sonic BOOM Jump Rope With Speed Cable

This jump rope lives up to its name as possibly the fastest speed rope on the market. It achieves speed through a patent pending bearing system which is super smooth, to the point where it is almost hard to tell if the rope is turning or not. The speed is also aided by the rope itself which offer a thin, but weighted stainless steel rope covered in PVC to reduce friction. The cable is fully adjustable for users all the way up to 6’9 feet and as short as 4’6 feet and won't tangle no matter what you do to it.

The defining feature of this particular jump rope is its 10 foot length which can accommodate users over 7 feet tall. Adjusting the length of this rope is super simple and only takes a few seconds while the stainless steel rope is both heavy and durable which makes it fast and long lasting. This jump rope boasts an innovative bearing system which is as smooth as butter and never gets caught or tangled. The one downside to this jump rope is that the handles aren't very impressive since they feel like cheap plastic and don’t do much for grip besides the wider end which stop for hand from flying off the handle. The Peak Win jump rope doesn't try to be anything but a solid, fast, and reliable, jump rope for fitness and training purposes which is why they also include a detailed training manual to get you started.

Rogue SR-1 Jump Rope

Rogue SR-1 Jump Rope

This is a super simple rope which is what makes it so awesome. It's made by Rogue which automatically makes it one of my favorites as this manufacturer has never put out a bad product in my opinion. The hand grip is a Rogue special glass filled nylon resin which makes it soft to the touch, but nearly indestructible and the tapered design makes it easy to keep your grip. The steel rope is a nice weight and coated in red vinyl to protect the environment around the user. The cable is easily adjustable, but once you adjust it's difficult turning back so be careful. For this product Rogue uses bearings that you can actually see which is a nice touch, and the bearings themselves swivel like a dream.
