In this grips guide, we'll walk you through everything you need to know to make an informed decision – from understanding different grip styles and materials to finding the perfect fit for your hand size and crossfit training needs.

Crossfit grips guide|Step 1 - Finding your shape

When we are talking about the subject crossfit grip shape, its important to remember that there is 3 different shapes to pick from. We have the traditionally 2-hole shape then we have the 3- hole shape and last but defiantly not at-least, we have the fingerless shape. In this next phase we will guide your through to finding the shape that you need

Fingerless grips guide

Fingerless grips

Fingerless grips are by far the most popular choice among our customers and also the most widely chosen shape of grips worldwide. We highly recommend this shape unless you have a personal preference for other shapes. The fingerless design allows you to utilize the full potential of hanging from the grips, providing a stronger grip experience. Additionally, the fingerless design allows you to rotate them when not using the grips in exercises such as double unders or barbell work such as snatch or clean and jerk.

3 hole grips

Three-hole grips are the second most preferred shape on the market. In the early days when grips were new to the market, most people only knew of three-hole grips. This shape keeps the material close to your skin and is preferred by some customers. We recommend this kind of grip if you do a lot of "Fight Gone Bad" workshops, where your main focus is to protect your palms against abrasions and blisters. We recommend the holed design if you primarily want to use them for kettlebell exercises and for workouts involving the barbell. Three-hole grips can also be used as fingerless grips; your fingers do not need to be in the holes for optimal performance.

2 hole grips

When grips were first introduced to the market back in the early 2000s, the only shape of grips you could buy was the classic two-hole grips. Today, this is the least preferred shape because it does not cover the whole palm. However, some customers still like this variation of grips because it allows them to maintain skin contact with the barbell or pull-up bar, which for some customers is key. We recommend this shape if you have tried it before and prefer this shape, but also if you are completely new to grips and just want to test which shape you like.

RXD® grips guide|Step 2 - What type of bar are your training on?

One of the most important things to do when selecting your next pair of grips is to do a bit of research on what kind of bar you're using. By this, we mean the pull-up bar. Is it rough with a lot of chalk? Is it smooth with no chalk? Or is it right in between these two?

Rough bars

A rough bar almost feels like sandpaper; it has a lot of texture, and you will experience that this kind of bar is really tough on your hands and grips. But on the positive side, most people like this kind of bar because it provides very good grip due to the texture creating solid friction. For this kind of bar, we want a pair of grips that are durable and can endure a lot of chalk without deteriorating. For this bar, we recommend grips made of either microfiber, hyperfiber, or leather. Scroll further down this page to find our selection of grips made from these materials.

Medium rough bars

In between the rough bar and the slippery bar, we will find the most common type of bar, namely the medium rough bar. This kind of pull-up bar also has a texture to it, but not as much as the rough bar and not completely non-textured like the slippery bar. When training on this bar, we want a pair of grips that provide a good grip surface, but also have longer durability so they don't wear down quickly. Here, we recommend grips made of carbon fiber and stone fiber materials. To view our selection of grips with these materials, please scroll further down this page.

Slippery bars

Now onto the type of bar that most people dislike because it's incredibly hard to hold onto; you'll have the feeling of almost falling down. The slippery bar has no texture; it almost feels like a clean bar of iron or aluminum. You'll mostly find these bars in global gyms where no chalk is allowed. Please note that the kinds of grips we recommend for this type do not like chalk; keep them chalk-free, and you will experience an awesome grip. We recommend grips made of hypalon, which feels almost like rubber. This material creates super high friction on the bar and a solid grip. Please scroll down to see our selection of hypalon grips.

RXD® grips guide|Step 3 - Choosing your new crossfit grips

You are now at the final stage of our CrossFit grips guide, and we hope we have made it a little easier for you to pick the correct shape and material that you need in order to succeed with your next training session. Below this text, you will find grips that are recommended for the different types of pull-up bars which we went over in the earlier segment.
