Gymnastic RingsGymnastic Rings
Gymnastic rings are a lightweight, portable bodyweight workout option which have been used by gymnasts for years. Featuring the latest technologies and manufacturing methods, Industrial Athletic offers a full selection of the best gymnastic rings in New Zealand.
Gymnastic rings come in two sizes. The 180-mm inside diameter ring which has a grip diameter of 28-mm is the size approved by the Standard International Gymnastics Foundation and is known as a FIG ring. We also carry FAT rings which have a grip diameter of 32-mm and an inside diameter of 172-mm. Both have an outside diameter of 236-mm.
Wooden gymnastic rings are generally considered to be superior to plastic ones as they are lighter-weight, provide superior grip and have increased moisture control so reducing the amount of chalk required. Constructed from a stack of high-density Birchwood they are cut into a perfect circle using a computer controlled router. The layers are then bonded together with a super-tough resin to make them extremely strong and durable. For use in WODs and functional fitness and for serious training, wood is the way to go.
ABS plastic gymnastic rings run a little cheaper and are adequate for almost any body weight exercise including pushups, pullups and dips. Still rings are a favourite training aid for general body conditioning and strength development as the innate instability of the rings makes any exercise tougher - and so more beneficial.
The gymnastic rings for sale at Industrial Athletic come with either competition or simple black straps. The competition rings straps measure 2-m and the industrial Nylon webbing is stitched in incremental blocks to make adjustments fast and simple. The black utility straps are 5-m in length and have indicators to help you correctly adjust both rings. Both straps use our revolutionary military grade steel carabiner locks which have a barrel and hollow feature which promotes fast changes, along with a screw locking system for extra security.
