Bear Grips is revolutionizing Hand Grips with our new, patent pending 2 Hole Gymnastic Hand Grips.
We pooled over 500 crossfitters and have used over 30 tester boxes to see what they are looking for in hand grips. They all said the same thing:
1) They want to be able to “feel” the bar with their grips on: Other companies use thick material like cowhide leather, not only is it thick, it feels like the grip is rough which is actually the exact opposite of what you should want during WODs. Our new Titanium grips are thin enough to “feel” the bar, yet thick enough to protect your hands from rips and tears.
2) Prevent blisters and calluses: Our grips protect your hands from blisters and calluses by covering the part of your palms that comes in contact with the bar during training. You want to make sure there is some excess material on your grips so it creates a hinge like fold at the top to help you with hand rotation. Too much excess material may be the reason why you get blisters and calluses because of the material rubbing on your palms and pinching your skin. Refer to our size chart to find the correct size.
3) They don’t want to tear their hands, or have their grips tear on them! It’s all fun and games til your hands tear open during a workout. Just when you think it won’t happen to you, it does, and it sucks! Our Titanium grips are thin enough to feel the bar but strong enough to protect your hands from rips and tears.
4) Have the right amount of grip for compound movements like Olympic lifts, pull ups , toes to bar and bar work: Most Grips or gloves on the market are actually too “grippy”. During WODs or Olympic lifting, you are doing compound movements, which means you actually want some slide to your grips. Our grips allow the movement needed on the bar.
