Top 5 Best Pull Up Handles
We've Just Updated Our TOP 5 Pull Up Bar Handles
If you're looking for the best pull up handles out there, we might be able to helo.
We've tested the 20 leading pull up bar handles out there to find the top leading ones.
How we decide?
1. Weight - Most people do pull ups at the gym (or in one of those street workout places) so it can't be too big or heavy. It has to be lightweight and portable
2. Grip - At the end of the day, you must be able to comfortably hold it while doing pull-ups, it shouldn't become slippery when you start sweating
3. Built quality - Unlike a metal bar, some of those handles might break, especially under heavy weight. I'm 200lb and doing pull ups with 60-80lb kettlebells, so trust me on this one - if it's on the list below, it will not break.
4. Design - I don't mean if it's pretty and attractive, I mean how easy it is to connect it to your bar (and also remove it)
So, let's cut to the chase?
Here Are The Top Pull-Up Bar Handles:
#1 - Angles90
Those are my favorite ones, no doubt about it.
The moon shaped design that's made of some kind of premium non-slip material, allows you to focus on the pull-ups and not trying to fix your grip after every rep. It's by far the best pull-up bar handles out there. You'll easily attach it to any bar and it's lightweight and compact, you can just place it in your jacket's pocket on your way to the gym.
#2 - Swissies by Kensui
I simply love these guys, somehow they're always one step ahead of the competition with brilliant products. Back in the days they've launched the first (at least the first that I'm aware of) weighted vest made for plates and now they're changing the game in the pull up bar handles.
During our tests, the Swissies were one of our favorite solutions as it was so easy to use it. No need to tie it, install it, no screws, it was simply a put and use solution.
Plus, the grip itself is perfect. They've designed it brilliantly so it won't slip and yet, it's not thin enough so you'll work on your forearm
#3 - CrossGrips
I love the CrossGrip for one reason, it allows you to change the grip (which means new fibers being activated) and you don't need a bar to use it.
The disadvantage is the fact the it'll only work in specific places, it won't even work with all doors (not all doors look like the one in the picture).
Let me tell you this, if you're training ONLY at home, then it's a great solution. Otherwise, I'd look at one of the other options on this list.
P.S - That's it for today, I know we promised you 5 and 3 but from everything we've tested we really prefer you to get one of these 3 solutions... We keep testing other options and if we'll find another 2 decent ones, we'll let you know and update the list.
