Looped aids are sold as a pair.

Ideal for the gym, Looped exercise aids feature strong loops which can be slipped over the handles of some exercise machines, e.g. ‘pull down bars’ and rowing machines. Or, if you prefer the great outdoors, they’re also an essential extra for some hand bikes. Looped aids feature adjustable padded wrist straps to prevent chafing.

Designed for solo use, Looped exercise aids easily slide on and off your machine or handbike when not under tension, allowing complete individual independence and the ability to ‘let go’ during rest periods. With an improved design incorporating tougher loops, Looped exercise aids are even easier to slip on and off your equipment. Download our Looped aid instructions leaflet to see how to put the aids on.

I use the Looped aid when I row in my single (one-person boat), or when I use the erg (rowing machine). When rowing in my single, I have to hold an oar in each hand. With only a thumb and a crooked pinky finger, I cannot grip the oar and pull with full force: I tape the loop part of the gripping aid on the oar so that it doesn’t rotate, and attach the grip aid to my wrist. I can then pull as hard as I want.

Looped exercise aids come in small/standard or large and are sold as a pair.

Active Hands aids are both kind to the skin and made to last. Built from tough webbing and comfortable but durable neoprene (wet suit material) they’re designed to withstand regular use, even for strenuous activities. All aids are machine washable.
