Product Summary

With the EVO G2, RX Smart Gear made improvements to the overall reliability and durability of its EVO G1 speed rope. The rope’s cable is offered in six weights and the length ranges from 6.5 feet to 10 feet. There are over 20 color options for the PVC coating. Uncoated cables are offered for more advanced users. The diamond knurling on the aerospace-grade aluminum handle increases the user’s control, and EVO’s patented dual-bearing swivel assembly makes for a speedy and accurate rope.  

The EVO G2 comes with a hefty $150 price tag, but that does include a carrying case and an RX Smart Gear patch. The cost is due in part to the insanely amazing handles and the fact that every aspect of the rope is customizable. The reviews on the RX Smart Gear website are overwhelmingly positive; one complaint about the rope was that the cable length was not adjustable.
