About the Equipment
These locally manufactured, durable Rhythmic Gymnastic Ropes are available in a variety of colours and are made from a high quality synthetic material according to FIG Specifications. The weave of this rope ensures that it maintains its shape beautifully during handling, skipping and throws.
This rope is highly recommended for Beginners to Intermediate Level Rhythmic Gymnasts (SAGF Level 1 to 10).
Rhythmic Gymnasts are able to adjust the Rope to their height by trimming the end of the Rope, resealing the material by either burning or wrapping it with tape and then re-knotting the Rope to ensure that it is easy to handle.
