Product Description

As Featured In Men’s Fitness Magazine

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Length is approximately 9 3/4 feet long (bespoke sizing can be done, just let us know)
  • Choose between a 1.5 inch or 2 inch diameter thick rope
  • Durable rubber handles on each end to aid grip and prevent fraying
  • 1.5″ weighs 1.9kg
  • 2″ weighs 2.4kg

If you are wanting to use these ropes for their real conditioning effect and thus a focus on fitness and fat loss, we recommend using the 1.5″ rope. If you are wanting to focus on a little more grip, arm and shoulder strength then the 2″ rope will do that to a greater degree.

We now offer two sizes: the 1.5″ will suit everyone, whilst the 2″ is for those that want an even greater grip and conditioning challenge. The 2″ is great for the MMA fighter to improve grip strength for holds and grappling.

Skipping is a truly excellent way of improving your conditioning. Boxers, MMA fighters, the Crossfit community and many others in the know continue to use this exercise because it works. With the Metal Rhino Skipping Battle Rope you move into a whole new league of total body savagery.

The extra weight of the rope means the shoulder girdle musculature gets far more of a beating than traditional ropes. Since jumping rope already provides a rigorous cardiovascular workout, building strength of joints and ligaments (especially in the ankles) and increases agility and special awareness, the extra weight hits you’re whole body harder than normal ropes.

The rope also has a real positive for those that find skipping difficult. The rope’s weight means you cannot skip as fast, thus allowing the beginner to really learn the coordination required to perform this exercise. Furthermore, the number of skips needed to get a real conditioning effect is way less than with a speed rope. You have to jump higher to clear the thicker rope, which means your jumping strength will improve.

You can also use the rope to perform biceps curls and triceps extensions (just slip it through a kettlebell handle), loop over a bar to do some chin-ups, and anything else you can think of!

Metal Rhino’s ropes are made of polypropylene originally designed to withstand the rigors of the shipyard. Unlike manilla and natural fibre ropes that can rot, retain water, and usually leave a trail of fibres*, the Metal Rhino Rope provides a good weight while remaining almost water, weather, and shed proof. The ends of the rope are wrapped with special RhinoGrip to prevent fraying and for additional grip support.

Contact us for bespoke lengths and pricing.

* Please note: some shedding of fibres will occur on a new rope. This diminishes after a few weeks use. Also, the surface used to perform exercises with the rope will affect it’s lifespan; the harsher the surface (concrete for example) the more damage the rope incurs.

This product has been sourced locally and was developed to the highest of standards.

    Over the past year I have focused on my health and fitness and have gained notable results. Ian Young from http://ifitni.co.uk/ introduced me to the battle rope in iFit30 and it brought strength and conditioning to another level! LOVE THIS!! After ordering my own from Metal Rhino I am able to work at an intense level at home!! Perfect, thanks Scott and Metal Rhino.

    I find the battle skipping ropes great. They’re good and strong. I’m not using them just for skipping, which is tough, but I also put weight plates on them and can work biceps and triceps. I also loop them round a rack to do mini battle rope waves and slap-downs. A great conditioning tool!

    My favourite piece of fitness kit ever!!!

    I first used the rope at iFit under the instruction of Ian Young (http://ifitni.co.uk/). I couldn’t believe that we actually had to use it for skipping… well, I absolutely loved it and the workout you get with this is amazing!!! So much that I had to have one for myself at home. It can be stored easily anywhere, and can be used indoors or outdoors. I can even put it in the car or backpack and use for outdoor training. Would highly recommend this to anyone as a part of their strength and conditioning training.

    I have found the Battle Skipping Rope an incredibly versatile piece of kit that helps me achieve my fitness goals. As a CrossFit athlete I credit it with helping me conquer the dreaded double unders. The thickness of the rope makes it compulsory for you to jump that little bit higher and this is essential for rotating the rope twice for the DU. The weight of the rope encourages positive use of the arms and shoulders. Apart from helping me with double-unders I also use the rope for hammer curls when used with a kettlebell. I no longer need big clunky equipment and I can take this anywhere with me. As a cardiovascular workout I love doing maximum effort one minute skips. If this doesn’t fry your shoulders and get your heart rate maxed out then nothing will!

    The battle skipping rope is my favourite piece of equipment. It is great fun and completely hammers you. I first used it during iFIT Elite. Ian Young introduced these in the 3rd week of our training, I thought it was a joke at first, but very quickly became hooked so much so that I think everyone needs a battle skipping rope in their lives. I have bought one for my Mum, Husband & Brother.

    A great piece of equipment that takes up very little room, can be taken anywhere and when you only have 5-10 mins to spare in the morning for a workout, the battle skipping rope is perfect; a few kettlebell swings, deadlifts, sprints and skipping with this bad boy is a great way to start the day! I wouldn’t be without it :-)

    The battle skipping rope is a valuable part of my conditioning tools. Great for aerobic conditioning, building grip strength, and due to its weight your forearms get a hammering too! I wouldn’t be without it!

    The Battle Skipping Ropes are a super bit of kit. They really work the body and fatigue most people very quickly – I bought two to drop into the circuit class and it is the piece of kit everyone loves to hate. Awesome product!

    I picked up a Metal Rhino heavy skipping rope, made from battling rope material. It’s a great additional conditioning tool and deceptively tough – my Personal Training clients love/hate it. So, I love it. Awesome product and highly recommended.

    Most skipping ropes are getting thinner, sleeker and more aerodynamic – ideal for efficiency, but less so for fat loss. Increase the intensity with Metal Rhino’s custom heavy rope that requires more strength to swing and a higher jump to clear.

    Best for: Improving cardio and burning fat.

    I bought both the 1.5 inch grip and the 2 inch grip Battle Skipping Rope. They are now my favourite piece of cardio equipment. They are worth every penny and they work you hard.

    The battle skipping rope is amazing and one of the most unsung but effective conditioning tools. Anyone who struggles with skipping will in fact find this much easier, as the weight of the rope (2kg!) forces you to slow the movement down, whilst at the same time building muscle and burning fat. It’s a great all round combined strength and cardio workout. It’s low impact with BIG results, working multiple muscle groups… shoulders, core, legs to name but a few!

    I incorporate it into all my Personal Training clients programmes (where there’s no shoulder or knee injury). They all love it. In fact, one of my clients actually asked for Metal Rhino’s details so they could use it in their back garden.

    Thank you so much, Lisa (https://www.facebook.com/lisasmartfitness/)
