We are proud to present the latest innovation in our lineup. The Raptor Grips have been designed to offer absolute maximum grip on any bar or surface. The front rubber polymer layer offers grooves just like a raptor skin to stick itself onto any bar. 

Raptor grips have been designed to be competition day grips as they require no break in and can be used with or without chalk. No matter what bars lay ahead, Raptor grips will grab on and never let go. 

While the gecko grips still offer maximum grip, Raptor X is unique in a way that it is designed to be used mainly without chalk on smooth bars. But don't worry, if you are a "chalk hog" you can still use it with the Raptors.

Dowel Effect - All of our grips are designed to have either a smaller or larger dowel based on your preferences. The size guide below ensures you will have enough length to create a dowel (fold at the top of your grips).

Loose Strap

All of our grips have been designed to wear loosely around the wrist. There should be enough space to put at least on finger between the strap and your wrist. This way you know you are wearing them correctly. 

Loose strap allows for a better force displacement around your wrist when performing gymnastics movements. 



2-holed grips are designed to be worn on the middle and ring fingers, while 3-hole grips are designed to be worn on index, middle and ring fingers. Please note the cutout on the 3-hole grips is for your thumb. This is how you know you are wearing them on the correct hands.

Easy way to remember which grip is which is to make sure the buckle is on the outer part of your wrist when the grips are strapped on.


Standard & Dowel Wear (Finger-holes)

You can wear the grips in 2-ways. Standard wear is when you wear your grips all the way down your fingers keeping the material snug to the hand and the bar. 

Dowel effect is created by having grips higher up on your fingers or fingertips allowing for the material to fold over itself creating a dowel. This is a preferred way to wear our grips as it allows for more fabric to cover your hand and the bar for more friction. Furthermore you are able to get the grips off quickly if needed.


What can I do with my grips?

Pretty much everything, to put it bluntly. Although you can do weightlifting and other barbell movements with your grips, they work their magic on the gymnastic rings and pull-up bars. 


2holes vs 3holes vs fingerless

This is a popular question we get. Ultimately it comes down to personal preference. 2-hole grips have been made popular in gymnastics. This shape is very straight and covers the most demanding areas of the hand. If you don't like having too much material between your hand and the bar, this is the style to go for.

Made popular by CrossFit, 3-hole grips are angled and cover almost the entirety of your palm. This is the most popular shape athletes choose, because this style offers the most protection of your palm due to high demand and high volume nature of our sport. 

Lastly fingerless is bit more like a mix between 2-hole and 3-hole. The fingerless covers as much palm as 3-hole but offers the similar feel as 2-hole. The way fingerless grabs the bar is also different. Because there is no fingers pulling the material back, fingerless wraps around the bar a lot more than the others, offering more friction and better grip.
