Mute® Sports manufactures The Split Ropes™ in our shop in North Georgia.
The CALF Version weighs about 4 ounces per side, not including the handles. You will receive one pair of Split Ropes.
Split Ropes™ are for anyone! It is a seated jump rope.
Mute Sports began manufacturing The Split Ropes in February, 2017 and have been improving and adding new varieties and weights since then. Please see our home page for details on how we began making them.
Some examples of people who are currently using these split ropes™ are: wheelchair users, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, quadriplegic, paraplegic, geriatric, obese, arthritic, back and foot pain/surgery/broken bones and for therapy.
They will give you similar benefits to jumping rope such as work your cardiovascular system, shoulders, grip, forearm and core. It is also a great tool for balance, coordination and stability.
It is highly suggested for the split ropes to hit the ground as to feel the resistance which causes the engagement of the core muscles and to maintain stability.
For those who have little or no grip: check out Mute® Sports Grip Assist Split Rope.
Available in Pup, Calf or Bull versions for $79.
The handle is beefier weighing in at 4 ounces has a hefty attachment to withstand the weight of the rope.
The Calf Split Ropes are blue and green resin impregnated poly rope for extreme durability and long life. The end has an abrasion resistant sleeve for longer rope life. This rope is not metal.
International Buyers Please Note:
Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to purchasing. Thank you.
IT IS A MUST that you hold the entire handle with a tight, full grip. (Unlike our standard jump ropes where we suggest holding the knob at the end of the handle). The momentum of the rope could cause the rope to fly out of your hand and possibly injure someone or yourself.

Testimonial from Hunter Clark, Adaptive Training Foundation Program Director:
“The adaptive ropes are used for us to challenge the stability, coordination, and aerobic capacity of our athletes who have spinal cord injuries or are wheelchair bound. As much as this rope helps elite adaptive athletes with challenging movements like swings for time, times jumps (for incomplete quadriplegics), and then alternating/backwards swings it could also be an incredibly effective way to provide a sedentary individual with a great low impact cardio respiratory workout. Not only that, when you incorporate grip strength into a time under tension exercise it should dramatically improve every day activities of living for people who have any sort of dexterity deficiency. When you combine that with the heavier (or lighter rope) you can create a seemingly endless way to challenge athletes in a safe and effective manner.”
