Leather jumping rope
The cord of a leather skipping rope is slightly thicker than that of a normal skipping rope, which makes it move more slowly. This makes it ideal if you are a beginner, or just to go for a nice workout without having to think of any personal (speed) records. In addition, the cord lasts lower, because leather is more resistant to the impact of the ground. And do you recognize that when you put a jumping rope into a bag it often turns into a knot? With a leather skipping rope, this is less likely to happen because the cord is thicker.
Weighted jumping ropes
Do you want a more intense workout? A weighted skipping rope has a heavier cord than a 'classic' skipping rope. There are also jumping ropes that offer the possibility to add weights so that you can alternate in intensity of the workout.
Nylon jumping rope
Looking for a cheap jumping rope? A nylon jumping rope is a good and economical choice. Plus, it's lightweight, so you can take it with you wherever you go..
