I was ‘today years old’ when I found out that skipping was invented by the Egyptians back in 1600 A.D. Imagine that! It may as well be one of the earliest forms of equipment-led exercise, dating back more than 400 years! There are theories that the rope made its way to Europe, and finally to America thanks to Dutch settlers, but fundamentally the idea of the skipping or the jump rope hasn’t changed… although it certainly has evolved to make it a better, more effective form of exercise.
The Earth 2.0 Jump Rope takes a fun pastime and turns it into a complete high-intensity full-body workout. By incorporating weights into the handles, the jump rope goes from being more than just a cardio tool, and something that really puts all your muscles in your hands and feet to work. The rope even comes with swappable cables of different thicknesses, letting you tweak the quality of your workout and choose between a fast session or a heavy-duty one.
The idea behind the Earth 2.0 Jump Rope was to go beyond the consensus of just a warm-up cardio-tool, according to Matias Hernandez, CEO of Velites Fitness. Boxers, athletes, olympians, and body-builders have all relied on skipping as a part of their training regimen, but here’s the problem with current jump-ropes. Not only do they occupy a small space in workout sessions, they’re (by design) tiny, inexpensive, frail pieces of equipment. The Earth 2.0 Jump Rope remedies that with perhaps one of the most robust rope-builds ever. With handles made from space-grade metal, and rotating elements near the cords (so they don’t tangle), the Earth 2.0 Jump Rope is just built to be better. Moreover, the fact that it incorporates weights into its design makes it more of a ‘serious’ workout product, if that’s something that makes sense. The handles on the Earth 2.0 weigh 200 grams each, and come with the ability to add more weights to them, bringing the overall weight up to 1 kilogram per handle. This really forces you to exert more effort into jumping, as your arms try to manipulate the heavy handles, and your body tries to keep up with this new pace. There are obviously multiple weights to work through, and you can choose which one suits you. The ropes themselves are swappable too, thanks to an easy fixture that lets you switch out ropes, choosing between a thin cable for speedy jump sessions, to an intermediate cable for something more advanced, and even a thick monster cable that’s at par with what experts use.
The entire jump-rope experience is incomplete without the Earth 2.0 training app, which not only introduces to new exercises and techniques when it comes to your jump-rope, but even helps track your workouts, showing you stats at the end of each session. You can program your hardware into the app (telling it which rope or weight you’re using) and even set your own goals for the app to coach you. If you’re wondering how to begin, the app has training levels from a novice to expert levels, allowing you to go from a skipping amateur to someone who can get a full-body work out (with shredded abs to show for it) in just under 20 minutes each day!

Handle weights provide 9 different combinations to dial-in the perfect amount of resistance. Start with 50 grams and work up to 350 grams extra weight per handle.
Built to Last
Unlike the average plastic jump rope, The Earth 2.0 uses rocket-grade aluminum and stainless steel to build their handles, weights, connectors and cable interiors. They are so confident in their construction that they offer a 2-year guarantee for all handles and weights.
The Earth 2.0 Jump Rope cable is engineered for maximum durability with a flexible but wear-resistant PVC cover that has been field-tested to hold up against multiple surfaces.
Forget Friction, It Spins
Months of engineering and testing went into building a high-tech ball bearing system that’s like no other jump rope on the market. The video above showcases the spinning of the rope.
