Battling ropes are an increasingly popular piece of functional fitness equipment in modern gyms.

Read more for some further information on the main considerations to choose the best fitness rope to meet your requirements.

Rope Diameter

For fitness use one of the main considerations is the diameter. When purchasing gym equipment it is important to consider the best option that can be used by the majority of gym-goers. For battling ropes, a typical range would be between 24mm and 50mm. This also applies to pull-up ropes and sledge/prowler ropes. For cricket boundary ropes it is important that they are clearly visible whilst not being too bulky. Typically cricket boundary ropes would range from 20mm to 30mm.

High-Quality Material

It is important that the right material is chosen and this will differ depending on a rope’s intended use. Synthetic materials can be preferable for sports boundary use as these ropes will need to remain the same size in different weather conditions. For battling ropes, as a result of their use, it is important that a flexible and durable material is used. It is also important that the rope has a substantial enough weight to provide resistance.


There is a number of different rope options available to meet different budget requirements. Synthetic ropes can provide a cost-effective option in some instances. There are also contexts where this type of rope can provide functional benefits by not being affected by some of the inherent limitations of natural ropes. Popular natural rope materials include jute, manila and sisal with synthetic alternatives available.
