These double-finger rip protectors are a great way to get your beginner gymnast into using grips. Designed to replace tape grips. Available in white, sold Each!
New Larger Size Now Available!
We've been way too slow getting you a larger version of the rip protector, but the wait is finally over! Use the diagram and dimensions below to figure out which size you need.
Note - There's not a lot of difference in overall length because the old model was very long already. The main change is a much bigger finger hole and and extra 1/2" in palm width.
|Large||3/4"||7 3/8"||2 1/2"|

Thin leather makes usable without break in from the start. Suitable for kids or small women. Just size the hole with a x-acto knife and sandpaper then tape to wrist and you are good to go. The price is too good to be true as you must buy two for a pair.

These leather hand protectors are great for CrossFitters use... HOWEVER, the finger holes are tiny and it's difficult to cut them to fit. Not too bad for my wife's small hands, but I had to hack them up quite a bit to fit. They are easy to use with a wrist sweat band to hold them in place. If the finger holes were large enough, they'd get all 5 stars.
Thanks for the feedback Frank. These were originally designed for young gymnasts, hence the small finger holes. We figured they might be useful for crossfitters with small hands, guess we need to make a larger version! :-)

The material seems good, but size is too small. I had to make the finger holes larger. Because the size of the holes to fit my fingers there is only a little leather left on the edges.
I don't expect them to last long.
I'm not surprised, they were originally developed with beginner gymnasts in mind. We have been selling a lot of the basic palm protector into crossfit. We are also developing a couple of new models, including larger sizes for larger hands. Please check back to see what we have coming!
