Mute® Sports manufactures The Split Ropes™ in our shop in North Georgia.
The BULL Version weighs about 8 ounces per side plus 4 ounces for the handle. It is our most popular!
Split Ropes are a seated version of a jump rope. These adaptive jump ropes are for anyone!
You will receive one PAIR of ropes as pictured and you choose handle colors.
Please let us know at checkout if you would like two different handle colors.
These Split Ropes™ 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 a great warm up tool as well! They need to hit the ground as to feel the resistance which causes the engagement of the core muscles and to maintain stability.
Some examples of people who are currently using these adaptive jump ropes are: wheelchair users, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, quadriplegic, paraplegic, geriatric, obese, arthritic, back and foot pain/surgery/broken bones and for therapy.
Mute Sports created the first Split Ropes™ on the market in February , 2017. We were visiting a gym teaching jump rope clinics and met an athlete in a wheelchair. She wanted to be part of the jump rope workout, so Tim cut one of our demo jump ropes in half for a seated version of an adaptive jump rope. From there, our Split Ropes™ evolved. Immediately Tim began gathering supplies for prototypes and soon after, production. We were already manufacturing Heavy Jump Ropes, so we had our beefier Mute Sports handles on hand. The first Split Rope™ that he built in 2017 was the Calf Split Rope. As time went on, we saw a need for different weights as well as a need for Grip Assist. Now, we have 5 different weights ranging from 2 ounces per side to a whopping 2 pounds per side. There is a wide variety of people that we have encountered over the years that can utilize our adaptive Split Ropes. The uses and possibilities are endless. Through our sales, we have come to know many awesome people all over the world. If you are a Veteran, please contact us, you may be able to receive your Split Ropes through your VA. We have resellers here in the United States as well as in Australia and the Nordic Countries. We have more resellers coming soon!
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.
Another option for those who have little or no grip, is Mute® Sports Grip Assist for $79.
The handle is beefier weighing in at 4 ounces and has a hefty attachment to withstand the weight of the rope.
The Bull Rope is salmon color 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.
It is a must to hold the rope handle with a tight, full grip.

SEATED DOUBLE-UNDERS ・・・ I have found that the Split Ropes from @mutesportsequipment has been my best warm up tool for any and all workouts. If you are not familiar with the Split Ropes, I suggest you get familiar really fast. There are two weights to them, one is a scaled weight which is a little lighter and then you have my favorite, the bully ropes! They are considered an Rx weight. Both are great for any workout that would include double unders. — #adaptivecrossfit #CROSSFIT#doubleunders #DU #wheelchair
