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 CrossFit rings 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.
