Gibson Rainbow Gymnastics Palm Grips Review

Introduction

If you are a budding gymnast, or have a fair bit of experience – you will know the perils of slippery poles all too well. Many wooden poles on horizontal bars can be very slippery, and constantly applying chalk to your hands or the pole is very time consuming and messy. Luckily, these leather palm gripsby Gibson Athletic are here to provide an alternative, but how well do they do their job? Are they better than chalk or worse? Let’s take a look.

Features Of Gibson Rainbow Gymnastics Palm Grips

Leather Construction:

As with a lot of gymnastics equipment, these palm grips are constructed from leather. This is because leather provides a lot of grip, and can easily be wiped clean which is great for sanitary reasons. During gymnastic sessions your hands can become very sweaty, and this negatively impacts the amount of grip you have on various poles, bars and other equipment you may be using – by using a pair of leather palm grips, you can get used to optimal grip, all the time. This means that your hand will never slip on another piece of equipment ever again.

Various Sizes:

Many other companies simply adopt a “one size fits all” policy, but when it comes to sporting equipment this can’t be done. This is because you need the perfect size for you, and your hands – therefore Gibson Athletic offer a full sizing chart, along with details on how to measure yourself in order to get the perfect size for you. This ensures that you will feel comfortable wearing the palm grips, and will get the perfect size for you – rather than having to send multiple pairs back before receiving the correct sized pair.

Pros

  • Provide Optimal Grip
  • Wipe Clean
  • Velcro Closure

Cons

  • The Velcro may become less effective over time, meaning they are less secure. This isn’t too much of a problem if you are careful.

Conclusion

If you are having trouble using gymnastic barsand poles, or even keeping a good grip on various equipment, the Gibson Rainbow Gymnastics Palm Grips will be able to help you out. They are available in various sizes and colours, so you can even complement the palm grip colour to your outfit colour.
