Battle Ropes, aka Battling Ropes, offer you an unrivalled upper body conditioning experience. Think of them as an upper body sprint that have minimal impact on the joints.
Widely used in MMA and Crossfit environments for its performance based results for good reason. By simply manoeuvring the ropes in various linear and circular motions over different time periods you hit the lungs and heart-rate hard. From fast waves, explosive slams, to dynamic twisting moves your conditioning and core strength is challenged to the max.
Attach the rope to a secure anchor point, even tied to a kettlebell or looped around a tree, these Battle Ropes are super easy to use for the beginner to the professional sportsperson. The grip is also challenged due to the ropes 1.5″ which has good carry-over to improving strength in more traditional forms of resistance based training.
Metal Rhino’s thick ropes are made of polypropylene originally designed to withstand the rigors of the shipyard. Unlike manilla, sisal 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 water, weather, and almost shed proof.
The ends of the rope are wrapped with a special rubber material to prevent fraying and for additional grip support.
Battling Rope Thickness is 1.5″ (38mm)
- 30ft = 9.5m = 5.7kg
- 33ft = 10m = 6.3kg
- 40ft = 12.5m = 7.6kg
- 50ft = 15.5m = 9.5kg
- 60ft = 18.5m = 11.4kg
- 65ft = 20m = 12.4kg
- 80ft = 25m = 15.2kg
- 100ft = 30m = 19kg
We believe that 40ft, 50ft and 60ft works well for most people. Shorter is fine for smaller areas and longer for that ultimate challenge where there is sufficient space.
The 1.5″ thick rope can be used be all people, including small ladies and children.
You can buy the 2″ rope here and is great for stronger people and those with larger hands or those that want a more intense grip challenge.

* 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.
