The RPM Sprint rope is one of the best lightweight speed ropes on the market, as well as being one of the most affordable at $35. If you’re looking for a rope that can go fast, this is it–it’s in the name, after all.
Featuring a coated cable and knurled handles, this speed rope isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s built to deliver a grueling cardio workout experience thanks to the oil-infused bushing anti-friction system that ensures a smooth rotation with each turn.
The RPM Sprint is incredibly light, making it easy to bring on the road (it also comes with its own cloth carrying case), and is cut-to-size so it works for people of all heights. The setup is a bit frustrating, but the workout experience is well worth it.
