We recently pre-launched our new training system - the Infinity Rope System - with our brand new indoor-outdoor ropes and combo sets.
One of the things we haven't talked much about is the new Bolt Set, which is included inside the premium Infinity Rope System.Since pre-launch, we've been receiving a number of questions about the new Bolt set. Here's everything you need to know about it.
What is the Bolt Set?
The Bolt Set is our new flagship jump rope speed training system.
It is a completely new design crafted for speed demons and double under enthusiasts looking to add a new element to their training.
The Bolt includes our brand new Aluminum Handles and the 1 Oz Sprint rope and 3 Oz Speed rope.
Update: we've created a short little video to showcase the uniqueness and advantages of the Bolt Set. You can watch the video here:

What are the advantages of the new handles?
A lot of attention was given to finely tuning each detail of the newly-designed aluminum handles.
The handles allow you to fully customize the length of your speed ropes to ensure they are ideal for your height and jumping preferences.
On top of that, the set is still interchangeable, but only with the new adjustable indoor ropes that come with it.
The chrome-colored aluminum handles have also been engineered to optimize grip.
They are extremely lightweight and virtually indestructible and you'll have no trouble holding on to them even with the sweatiest of hands.
How do you adjust the length of the ropes?
When you first receive the Bolt set, you'll need to take a few minutes to adjust the length of each rope to suit your height and jumping style.
This is an important step if you want to get the most out of your jump rope training experience.
Here's what you'll need to make the adjustments...
- Wire cutting tool (not included)
- Hex key (included in your set)

Can I use my other Crossropes with the new handles?
In order to create a system that allows you to customize the length of your ropes, we designed the the handle in a way that does not allow old ropes to be connected.
The new handles are only compatible with our adjustable speed ropes (that come with the set).
What are the benefits of the Bolt Set?
The Bolt Set was designed to give high performance speed training options.
If you're looking to add a new level of speed to your training or improve your double under performance, the Bolt Set can be used with the 3 Oz rope for excellent feedback in learning and improving skills like the double under and then challenging yourself to reach new speeds with the 1 Oz Sprint rope.
But that's only the beginning...
The Bolt Set is also a great addition to your training mix if you already have heavy jump ropes on hand.
Just like it's ideal to have a mix of heavy and light dumbbells (for training versatility), you want to have a mix of heavy ropes and speed ropes.
This will allow you to keep your jump rope training versatile and engaging.
No matter what you choose to use it for, the Bolt set will offer endless training opportunities and it's a lot of fun to use!
How do I get the Bolt Set?
Right now there are two ways you can get the Bolt set.
1) As part of the Infinity Rope System (Premium)
The Premium Infinity Rope System is the full jump rope training experience in one package.
It comes with all of our new interchangeable indoor-outdoor ropes plus the full Bolt set. You'll also get our training bag and training guide.
2) You can get the Bolt Set on its own
If you already own a set of heavy ropes or you're just interested in training for speed or double unders, then you can pick up the Bolt set on its own.
Regardless of which set you get, if you order within the next few days we should still be able to get it out to you before the holiday season.
That’s all we’ve got for you today!
We're really excited about the Bolt and we can't wait for you to try it. If you have any questions about the set, please leave them in the comment section below.
