This week I was sent some new awesome speed ropes from a new company called No Label Fitness. Already speed rope has helped me dramatically improve my technique, times & better than that my Skills. So this speed rope would be for the aspiring, fighter, gym goer, person that works out a box that wants to improve & take their training to the next level. It is gender agnostic, (can’t believe I just used those fancy words) it’s for men, women or even children (if supervised). It’s a great rope that can be used by anyone.
“One thing I noticed was the build quality, this speed rope has been built with no expense spared”
One thing I noticed was the build quality, the handles have a little weight to them but I wouldn’t say they are weighted. The anodised cross cut aluminium handles feel nice & they’re not too heavy or chunky.
In summary the Pro-Series, is my speed rope of choice, i’ll always throw this in my gym bag before I leave home. I would give this 5*’s. It’s a great weight, easy to customise, and it definitely helped me up my game. I have customised mine by changing the colour of the rope from black to yellow and it looks “tip top” (def showing my age with that comment. To top all this off, it’s is covered by a 5 year warranty.
Handles are 16cm long & weight approximately 210g.
The 3 metre cable is 3mm thick (slightly thicker than a normal speed rope cable) made up of 7×1 braided aeronautical grade stainless steel and has been coated for extra protection and tangle free storage.

What The Manufacturer Says:
The pinnacle of speed rope innovation
When we were designing the Pro Series we had to make this speed rope better than anything else available on the market. The Pro-Series speed rope is the ultimate double under fitness tool ensuring build quality, functionality and speed are at your finger tips. We want this experience to be the one that you tell all your friends about.
Not all speed ropes are built equally
The Pro-Series is called so as it’s our top line speed rope. We chose a 15mm cut aluminium alloy handle that has been cross machined to give you a stronger more comfortable grip. The handle measures 130mm in length which from our research is the optimum length on average. This light weight aluminium is “bomb proof”. Using a light weight aluminium alloy is a relatively new concept amongst speed ropes and in our opinion is the latest and greatest thing to happen.
Used By Professional PTs & Athletes

So over the past month we’ve been looking to find the #1 Speed Rope UK.
After being sent several different speed ropes in all price categories from many different manufacturers, we have finally made our decision and can now tell you the winner of the #1 Speed Rope UK.
This wasn’t an easy decision and there were many factors that contributed to the decision of said result. Here at www.bestskippingrope.co.uk our team of 4 fitness professionals put all these speed ropes through their paces before coming to a unanimous decision. That’s not to say that it wasn’t tough.
Our team of 4 testers/athletes have over 40 years of fitness experience in the industry and are all members of a crossfit box, so they all know their stuff when it comes to choosing the #1 crossfit speed rope uk. They weren’t just looking for the cheapest or most expensive with the fanciest packaging & crazy claims. They were looking for a certain number of attributes that checked the boxes on their score cards.
Being the #1 Speed rope uk is not something to take lightly.
So what were they looking for I hear you ask?
Build Quality – Was the #1 Speed Rope UK well put together. Did it have a solid construction. Could it last. No one wants to spend their hard earned money on a speed rope thats’s only going to last five minutes.
Comfortable – Were the rope & handles build with comfort in mind. Were the handles ergonomically designed. Could you use the rope for long periods of time working at your max.
Value – Was the speed rope good value for money based on the the build quality.
Transition – Did the speed rope spin nicely over your head, was it easy to perform multiple double unders. Was it using ball bearings for the smooth fast effortless spin.
Price – Was the product well priced?
Warranty – Did the best speed rope uk come with a manufacturers warranty?
All of these factors were decided and you can view the results here on the speed rope reviews page.
Well for starters we need to look at budget. To be frank you’re not going to get a decent speed rope for less than a tenner. So our target price range to look for our best speed rope should be between £10-£50.
What should you be looking for?
– Either a high quality moulded plastic or metal handle. This will determine the type of weight of handle you will have. The plastic handles are usually a little lighter.
– The better quality speed ropes will feature a ball bearing mechanism to allow the speed rope to spin faster
– Usually when buying a speed rope they come with an oversize rope. When looking for the best speed rope, you ideally need it to be adjustable so that you can change the length easily. They will either have a screw adjustable top or lug which you can loosen or tighten.
– The rope part will need to be made from wire (usually steel). Either naked or covered in a hard-wearing nylon.

So you’ve just joined a box, and now you’re wandering what the best speedrope for double unders is.
Speed ropes are an essential piece of kit for anyone going to a box. Double unders or DU, (the acronym) play a significant part in many WODs(workout of the day). Having the best speed rope for double unders is a necessity to ensure you get it right.
Double unders are not so easy to do. They will require a basic level of fitness and great conordintation. If you have already mastered the basics then it’s time to move on.
What is a double under?
For those of you that don’t know, a double under is basically when the rope travels over the users head twice while you only jump once. It’s a tricky move and will require a bit of practice. Ensuring that you have the best speed rope for double unders will certainly help you on your way.
I would say the best speed rope for double unders is light weight, either has a plastic or metal handle, a thin wire/steel rope and spins using a ball bearing moving part. The ball bearing moving part has an advantage of the speed ropes that don’t. The ball bearing mechanism allows the rope to not only spin freely but also at an increased velocity.
Why does a speed rope have a metal wire?
The reason why the speed rope has a metal wire is because it is light weight and has a minimal surface area. Because of this, the rope cuts through the air as it is spinning with very little drag.
So where can i buy the best skipping rope for double unders?
Well i’m super glad you asked that question. There are a number of great online stores where you can buy a speed rope online, we recommend a company called Gasp Fitness, or failing that you can buy a speed rope Amazon.
