How to Choose the Perfect Leather CrossFit Gymnastics Grips, and why JerkFit RAW Grips 3.0 are the best.

CrossFit gymnastics grips are an essential piece of equipment for any CrossFit athlete looking to improve their grip and prevent hand injuries. 

With so many different types of grips on the market, it can be difficult to determine which ones are the best for your needs. We’ve done the research, and we have our results. 

Let's explore what makes a great leather CrossFit gymnastics grip and why we know JerkFit, with our latest launch of theRAW Grips version 3.0, is the best option ever released. 

Let's face it, if you’ve ever tried leather gymnastics grips, you will know that most tend to be thick, stiff, and painful to break in. If you can endure a ton of discomfort, spread out over a few weeks of use, you may finally benefit from their protection, but many people simply give up before that process is completed. 

A great leather CrossFit gymnastics grip should be made from high-quality materials. 

Sadly, most designers have completely missed the mark by not understanding the different processes to produce the perfect leather material. The leather used in the grip should be durable, yet supple enough to provide comfort and flexibility during movements. 

After years of trial and error, working with different tanneries, our designers at JerkFit were looking for special, unique, and high-quality leather to be treated to our exact specifications, with the goal of making them ultra-soft, comfortable, and totally broken-in right out of the package.  

Well, we eventually hit pay dirt with some of the most supple, soft, and durable leather ever produced for the exact purpose of providing pain-free hand protection. 

And the second you pull a RAW Grips version 3.0 out of the package; you can FEEL how incredibly soft it is. There is nothing like it! 

We didn’t just stop there though. 

We wanted a unique design, one that would provide maximum coverage with the least number of finger holes and material as possible. Traditional 3 finger grips, while providing full coverage, are typically restrictive for wrist mobility. 

That’s why we settled on 2 finger grips, leaving the index finger free to allow for much more range of motion of the wrist, allowing it to bend back comfortably without having to take the grips off when not on a pull up rig. 

RAW Grips 2 finger design does just that with their unique shape providing full coverage and protection of the palm. 

Another incredible feature is the newly improved wrist strap. 

Most gymnastic gloves on the market’s Velcro straps tend to wear out very quickly rendering the grips useless even when the leather is still in good shape.  

Earlier versions of the RAW Grips suffered that same fate as well. But, with the latest edition of the now world-famous RAW Grips, JerkFit has finally solved that issue once and for all. The strap is now perfect, super durable and should last longer than any strap out there. 

A great leather CrossFit gymnastics grip should be versatile enough to use for a variety of different movements, not just for a pull up rig. 

JerkFit RAW Grips are perfect for use with pull-ups, muscle-ups, toes-to-bar, and kettlebell swings, but thanks to their versatility and mobility, they are great for many other CrossFit movements as well. 

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned veteran, these grips are designed to meet your needs, protect your hands, and help you achieve your fitness goals. 

When it comes to choosing a leather CrossFit gymnastics grip, JerkFit RAW Grips are the best option on the market. 

One of the highest selling and highly rated grips on Amazon worldwide, there really isn’t anything out there comparable when it comes to quality, softness, durability, and versatility.  

So, if you're looking for a grip that will help you take your CrossFit training to the next level, look no further than JerkFit's RAW Grips 3.0.
