I really like the Adjusta-bell. They allow me to maximize the use of my existing weights without having to buy more. In that respect, they are a good cost effective product for home gym use. The additional attachments make using 2" Olympic plates easier and they can hold a lot of weight. They are also very comfortable to rest on you legs as there is no bar overhang.
Great product, good investment. : )
I purchased both classic swissies and swisses45. Products arrived within the stated time. Great products, they allow me to modify the grip on the pull-up bar, or use them with a barbell. Extremely robust and well made. I absolutely recommend them!
Have used for a week or so it appears to be very nice. Don’t know how long it will last but I like them .
Hello-I love the dumbbells! I use them with 1” opening plates. The only issue I had is that when I tightened the plates, I couldn’t loosen them. I had to use pliers to help loosen the pegs. My only suggestion is that the knurled peg should be wider in order to be able grip it with your hand to loosen it. Other than that, super cool!
Its comfortable and perfectly adapts to the body, perfect for those who wanna workout using rings
Reasonable prices, great grip and easy to use. Keep up the great product Kensui. Definitely looking to buy second sets.
These were fantastic.
As someone with iffy shoulders and bad elbows, I wanted an alternative to my straight pull-up bar and these did not disappoint. I used them for my workout this morning and found the handles to be sturdy and the knurling helpful in getting a solid grip. Overall a fantastic product for anyone that lacks a multi grip pull-up bar!!! 5/5!
I decided to change my training style from free weights to more calisthenics and my research lead me to this vest. My initial impressions are very positive. I'm getting the best workout in ages since over the last 10 years I've become bored of heavy weight lifting. The main benefit I've found from using the V2 max is the sheer volume I can pump out in a short period. Chest day for example, I strap up 15kg, set a neutral pushup position on my paralettes and go ham. Same with lunges and pull-ups. I'm already leaner and feeling more athletic. The other benefit of the vest is that it takes up minimal space and is easily stored. It's comfortable and tight to the body without hindering movement or breathing and it feels very durable. In all it's a great inVESTment.
Bought the originals and 45 degree pairs. Both make pull ups more comfortable. I use the originals for close grip pull ups and 45 degrees for wide grip. I don't write alot of reviews but these are well made and definitely have improved the quality of my home exercise routine. If you're cash strapped, go with the 45 degree pair as I think they are ultimately more versatile. If not, nice to have both.
The good is that my wrists feel much more natural or neutral when lifting with the 45° but the great is that it increases my range of motion on some lifts, like the upright row. Usually the bar hits your chin and that’s about it. With these grips you can go much higher and get a more complete FROM under stress.
My only wish is that I could get them to stay at the same place on the bar. Maybe Version 2.0 will have a clamp of some kind to keep them in one spot.
Fab, working well, with a bit of adjustment to the plakes, I'm able to make up to 40kg (88 pounds in American) on each dumbbell, being careful not to drop them though.
Great vest, love using it, works as described and is amazing to add some weight using the plates you have.
Only downside is the additional "sleeves" you're offered to order in addition to the vest are not a "99% fit" as advertised and in fact do not fit any of my plates above 2.5kg so I basically have no use for them once im over the 2.5kg and I just wasted 27$ for nothing. You will not get a replacement that fits better, BEWARE. If your plates are thick, they will most likely not fit.
Used as an achor for crunches, used in leg lifts, gluten kicks, leg extensions, leg curls, hip flexers....the list is endless.
I wanted to perform Inverted Rows on the Smith Machine and was so happy to come across the Swissies on Instagram. Does the jobs perfectly. Great product. I’m a Personal Trainer and have recommended them to my clients with home gyms.
For years I've been trying to get the perfect in home pull up bar
I tried them all
Build my own
None are as perfect as a playground standing chin bar
But at least
With some gymnastic ring straps
A powder coated bar from rogue and these neutral grip attachments
I have the perfect pull up bar
I think I've saved over 700€ by getting these instead of adjustable dumbbells that come with their own weight plates. It comes at a price of having to adjust and readjust the plates. Even when you only want to change a small plate, you'll have to take apart the entire thing.
I definitely don't think this is friendly towards a dumbbell focused routine, but for someone who already has a routine and wishes to incorporate a dumbbell exercise this is great. It just takes too long to switch out the weights. But if you're readjusting your dumbbell during rest of a different exercises, you don't lose any time.
But once it's set up it's solid. The knurling is good enough, the flat head makes it easy to put on your knees, and it has a tiny footprint. It can fit in a bag and weighs nothing. Can easily mix and match plates, which is generally common, if you're someone that tries to get deals for your weight plates. The dimensions are great even for pushing movements (which is where most competitors fall flat).
Shipping, packaging and everything else is great, no complaints there. Arrived quick, through the proper channels.
I've used the 360 grips a few times now and I can't say enough good things! I love the ability to rotate throughout the pulling movement. Attempting to NOT rotate is also a fun, unique challenge with these grips. The handle is smooth and comfortable and these are super easy to set up. My 4- and 7-year olds love them too. Notice all the other Kensui grips in the photo :) Highly recommend!
Great for pulls ups but also use them for seal rows and on my lay pull down bar
Great product- very well made
You definitely need the spacers for olympic plates and these things operate very well. I am buying 2 more now to create additional dumbbells for my gym. They are way better than regular adjustables not smashing yourself in the leg with the part that overhangs.
Got the neutral grip, and the 45° handles. Why didn't i come up with this is my first question after using them. These grips are my go to for rows, and pulldowns. I highly recommend them. If you only get one get the 45° grips because it also doubles as a supinated grip.
Excellente fabrication, maintenue parfaitement au buste, très pratique pour les entraînements près du sol avec les minis embouts, service client extraordinaire. Je fais du 4XL US de Rogue et 130kg, les sangles sont courtes pour bien attacher la veste. C’est Kensui qui m’a proposé de m’envoyer une paire plus longue avant même que je demande. Bravo. LG
Parfait ! Utilisé avec des élastiques pour tous les tirages à tous les angles.et bien sûr pour les traction, le tout dans une cage à squat.
Bought to replace the flimsy 1 inch diameter dumbell bars I had that always shook loose. These kensui models lock the weight in place and it doesn't budge. Great product
