Unlike modern speed and jump ropes, RX Smart Gear’s Drag Rope has no swivel and no bearing. It is just two handles and a piece of polypropylene rope. Although the Drag Rope isn’t super heavy, it produces a constant air resistance that makes for an intense workout. The handles have a crisscross pattern on them that makes them easy to grip, even when your hands get sweaty.Manufacturer: RX Smart GearCategories: Jump Ropes, Weighted Ropes

Product Summary & Specs
The Drag Rope from Rx Smart Gear is a simple but highly effective rope that consists of two handles and a piece of polypropylene rope. However, that is all that is needed to produce a substantial drag coefficient, as well as a pretty cool wind tunnel noise when you use it. Although the Drag Rope will provide an intense, full-body workout, the handles are designed so that you can keep your grip on them even when you’re sweaty.
