The brand new RumbleRoller surface contains specially designed bumps that are firm, but flexible, much like the thumbs of a massage therapist. As you roll over the top of the RumbleRoller, the bumps continuously knead the contours of your body, gently stretching soft tissue (muscle and fascia) in multiple directions.
The surface of the RumbleRoller contains specially designed bumps that are firm, but flexible, much like the thumbs of a massage therapist.
As you roll over the top of the RumbleRoller, the bumps continuously knead the contours of your body, gently stretching soft tissue (muscle and fascia) in multiple directions. This action erodes trigger points, helps restore flexibility, and brings quick relief to common types of muscular pain. By design, the RumbleRoller's bumps are firmer than muscle tissue, but much softer than bone, so they deflect out of the way if they contact your spine or other bony protrusions.
Through simple techniques, you can control the amount of pressure the bumps apply to your body. The bumps are closely spaced to one another (< 2" apart), so several of them simultaneously contact your body during most exercises. However, with a slight shift of your body, you can reduce your area of contact with the RumbleRoller, which increases pressure and provides deeper, more penetrating relief.
Size: 12.5cm x 30cm
Instructions: Colour Instructions Included
Material: EVA/polyolefin Blend - Waterproof & latex free
The RumbleRoller's smooth, nonporous surface repels most dirt. It's also water-proof and latex free, and includes a molded-in antimicrobial additive that helps prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus. To clean your RumbleRoller, simply wipe it down as needed with soap and water or any common household cleaner.
The RumbleRoller Outlasts Conventional Foam Rollers
Before creating the RumbleRoller, we spent years studying other foam rollers, and testing many different types of advanced polymers. Our material research resulted in a product that has several times the strength and tear resistance of conventional rollers, has a wonderful feel, permanently retains its shape, and is guaranteed to outlast and outperform any foam roller that you've ever used.
Injuries, repetitive motion, or even prolonged inactivity can lead to the development of trigger points, which are localized areas of muscle and fascia with compromised function. Professional massage is the best way to counter this problem, but few people can afford to employ it as often as it's needed. The RumbleRoller provides you with a more convenient and economical self-treatment option.
What Size & Firmness?Full-Size or Compact?
The RumbleRoller is made in two different sizes, and each size is available in two different densities. The information below will help you choose the best model for your particular needs.
If you plan to use your RumbleRoller in a single location -- e.g. at home -- you'll love the full-size model, because its extra length makes it more efficient for performing many exercises. It's long enough to roll the widest part of your back in one pass; you can roll both legs (quads, hamstrings, and/or calves) at the same time; and you can even transition from one IT band to the other without moving the roller. With the Compact RumbleRoller, you'll need to roll each leg separately, and will spend a little more time repositioning yourself between exercises.
The major advantage the Compact RumbleRoller has over the full-size model is its portability. At just 30cm in length, it fits easily in your gym bag, backpack, or carry-on luggage. This makes it a favorite of runners and triathletes, who transport theirs from race to race. The Compact RumbleRoller's smaller diameter (12.5cm vs. 15cm for the full-size model) allows it to conform better to the curvature of some body parts, such as your neck. The Compact RumbleRoller also costs less than the full-size model, which may be important if your budget is limited.
Original Density or Extra-Firm?
If you're new to foam rolling or have gotten positive results from any type of conventional foam roller, you'll want the original density (blue). Even though this is our "softest" roller, it's still more aggressive than any other foam roller on the market. The extra-firm version (black) is intended for experienced users with especially dense muscle tissue that doesn't respond to normal massage pressure
FAQ'sWhy is a bumpy roller better than a smooth one?
The bumps reach areas of your body that smooth rollers can't, work on deeper layers of muscle (like deep-tissue massage), stretch your fascia in multiple directions (like cross-frictional massage), and are more effective at releasing trigger points.
What is the outer surface made from?
The RumbleRoller's smooth, nonporous surface is made from a proprietary EVA/polyolefin blend that repels most dirt. It's also water-proof and latex free, and includes a molded-in antimicrobial additive that helps prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus. To clean your RumbleRoller, simply wipe it down as needed with soap and water or any common household cleaner.
Is the center of the RumbleRoller hollow?
No, the RumbleRoller has a solid core made from a resilient grade of high-density EVA foam. The core and outer shell were both carefully engineered to give the RumbleRoller maximum durability and optimal feel.
Do the bumps flatten out over time?
No, the bumps permanently retain their shape and resiliency. If you look closely at the surface of a used RumbleRoller, you may see tiny little wrinkles on the bumps, but they don't effect its performance.
Why is the RumbleRoller more expensive than other rollers?
The RumbleRoller is a more durable product that's built from higher quality materials. It doesn't break down and doesn't need periodic replacement like conventional foam rollers, so it's a smarter long-term investment.
Should I buy the Full-size or Compact RumbleRoller?
The larger surface area of the Full-size RumbleRoller gives you a lot more room for turning and twisting movements and for transitioning between different exercises. If you plan to keep your RumbleRoller in one location (e.g. at home) and have the space for it, we definitely recommend the Full-size model. But if you plan to travel with your RumbleRoller or keep it in your gym bag, go with the Compact.
