Pros of the SR2 Bridges
The Aluminium will keep your handles in the same form, even if you tread them title careless. They will also hold chalk better in case you use the jump rope in a WOD with deadlifts or other exercises which you chalk up for.
Cons of the SR2 Bridges
Not everybody might like the design. If that is the case there are other variations of the SR2 available which differ in color and the form of the handle. Not everybody will be happy to pay around $50 for a jump rope. You also have lower-cost options like the SR3 in the Rogue portfolio.
Alternatives to the Bridges SR2
Alternatives to the SR2 are:
The SR3 jump rope is the bread and butter model in the CrossFit community. If you are annoyed with the jump rope from the local shop and want to start with double unders, this is the one for you. It is part of many of the Rogue equipment packages and can also be bought in bulk to outfit an affiliate or college gym.
The SR1 jump rope is an alternative to get a bearing jump rope on the cheap. The SR1 also has bearing to make the rope run smoothly but the handles are not made of Aluminium. This makes them lighter and more cost-efficient at the expense of being easier to break.
The Rogue Pro Jump Rope is the ultimate jump rope from Rogue. It combines the speed of the speed ropes with the weight of heavy ropes to create the mist challenging and satisfying jump rope experience from Rogue. This product is also fully manufactured in the States. Apart from the price, there is nothing bad to be said about it since its first appearance at the CrossFit 2016 games.
