Jump Rope Sizing Guide
By default all of our jump ropes come with a 10 foot cord or cable, unless otherwise specified. This length of cord will fit anybody up to 6' 4" tall for general fitness jumping.
Longer cords and cables can be purchased separately.
Easily size down your 10ft cord/cable with scissors or cable cutters.
General Fitness: If you’re just getting started with a jump rope or simply want to burn a few calories, efficiency is no longer the goal but rather consistency. While you’re still learning to jump, you may need a bit more length in the rope. This extra length will allow you the space to make minor technique errors without causing misses. We recommend a height of 10” to 18” over your head.
- Goal: Consistency
- Clearance: 10” to 18”
Speed & Double Unders: The goal with speed jumping is efficiency, which means you want the jump rope to travel the shortest distance possible with minimal effort. If your jump rope is too long, it will feel sloppy and take too much effort to turn. A shorter distance means a smaller gap between your head and the rope. You’ll want to aim for 4” to 8” to maximize your jump rope speed.
- Goal: Efficiency
- Clearance: 4” to 8”
Freestyle: Jump rope tricks require a high level of control over the rope and the handles. Freestyle jump rope allows for the variance in recommended height because of the different paths the rope takes for tricks. Whatever length you’re most comfortable with is best. Typically, we recommend the rope be between 6” to 14” over your head. However, it is common to see ropes only a few inches over the heads of competitive freestyle jumpers.
- Goal: Control
- Clearance: 6” to 14”
Build your fitness and jump rope skill with this training set, which includes three different PVC rope thicknesses for increasing the difficulty and intensity of your workouts.
- 4mm Cord (White): This thinner, lighter cord is great for freestyle movements and double unders. If you are a beginner we recommend starting with the 5mm cord and working up to the 4mm when you have your timing down.
- 5mm Cord (Black): This is the standard recommended thickness for starting your training. Great for developing a rhythm. Best for cardio and fitness workouts.
- 6mm Cord (Turquoise): This thicker, heavier cord creates more resistance for a more robust workout.

Jump rope isn’t my first go to when it comes to exercise. I’ve had many jumó ropes in the past, but I never used them all that often. Mainly being out of shape, but also the comfort of the jump rope. Either the handles were too big or the rope was too heavy/light.
This rope is perfect for me. Changing out the ropes is super easy. After changing it out a few times I found the easiest way to change these is to grab the plastic stopper and push the rope up through. The harder way is using your finger nails or a knife to pry the clamp down. You don’t need to do that. Just push against the stopper and it just pops out.
As for the comfort, feels really comfortable to use. I love that there are three different ropes that are different weights. 6mm is good for slower jumping, which is where I started at. Now using the 5mm in my routine. I tried the 4mm, but I’m not quite there yet to go for five minutes. the handles are also very comfortable.
Over all, a great jump rope that I will be using a lot.
Great jump rope...way better than the avg rope. Three different weighted ropes included. Easier to use and good quality.
I used to jump rope all the time. I tried to get back into it a few times at my gym but never liked their ropes. Now that I have this rope I'm jumping again. All the parts are high quality and should last a long time.
It took me a minute to figure out how to adjust the snap locks. One you do it's very easy to adjust or switch out ropes. You just pinch the cup and pull the rope.
My only gripe is that a case would have been nice. I often times find products on Amazon come with bags or cases that are unnecessary. For these though, it would be nice to keep all the different ropes together. A few extra snap locks would be a welcome addition as well.
I like the fact that the end-pieces allow for easy adjustment, so I use that capability to switch ropes depending on my purpose, however, I suspect the pieces may not last very long, as they are a relatively thinner plastic, but for now, all is good. I like that there is what I’ll call my heavy rope for basic jumping, and the light rope (white) for things like double-unders. The blue will be a basic back-up.
I usually use enclosed-wire ropes that have a form of protective covering (like at CrossFit gyms), so I try to jump atop a mat to prevent the quick degradation of that protection. This is not an enclosed wire, so they’re extremely easy to cut to size; however, I would suggest checking your centers every so often to check for wear to prevent sudden snapping apart and whipping of anyone or anything around you.
They’re comfortable in my small hands & move smoothly- I’m going to keep an eye on wear at the base of the handle where the rope rotates through. I’ll update as needed.
Thanks for the review Elaine! Not to worry about thin handle. These are made of an unbreakable plastic polymer. We've run these over with forklifts to test and they don't break. You'll be pleasantly surprised. We made them thin so they are light to hold and use. If you have any issues we offer a 1 year warranty we'll replace no issues.
I like this jump rope. The handles are comfortable. It comes with 3 different rope thickness options. I'll be using these to help get back in shape and to teach my son how to jump rope.
