What are they?

A pair of no chalk grips from Element 26 made out of a Proprietary Isoprene Polymer material claiming to provide excellent grip without any use of chalk. With an average rating of 4.6 stars on Amazon, I was intrigued to try them out.


The Proprietary Isoprene Polymer material works like a charm. The main grip feels like rubber (be prepared to get rubbery smelling hands), and is really thick, which makes them provide good palm protection but not as close a feeling to the bar as you’d get from thinner leather or carbon fibre grips.


The wrist straps are adjustable which makes it easier to get the best possible fit, and the latest version of the grips have finger loops on the back. If you're between two sizes, I would go a bit smaller so the grips stay closer to your hand. But that's up to personal preference.


These grips are made to be used without chalk, getting some on them will actually make them slippier so try to avoid that. If/when you get som on them, just rinse them off on the isoprene side using water and possibly a bit of soap.

If you’re into WODs with a lot of gymnastic movements I think you’ll enjoy these ones since the special rubber polymer helps you really stick to the bar. We tested them out on both the Speal Bar and Coated Bar and they do the trick even for longer workouts. If you enjoy a very smooth feeling however, they might not be the ones for you, just because of the fact that they create such a good amount of friction.

All in all, these grips are very well made. Awesome for WODs with pull ups, kettlebell work and in my mind, specifically for gymnastic movements.
