RumbleRoller Midsize Roller
Xtra Firm: Black
Midsize: 5.5" dia x 22" long (140 x 550mm)
Long enough to roll your full back or both legs at once, but less costly and easier to store than the Full-size.
If you're like most athletes, your muscular tightness is beyond what a conventional foam roller can cure. Using harder rollers or PVC pipe isn't enough, because their inflexible surfaces don't work well around bones nor get close enough to muscle attachments. You need more advanced tools that go deeper into the muscle to confront the origin of your pain. RumbleRoller's patented massage tools incorporate the perfect mix of shape, firmness, and resiliency. Their effectiveness is legendary, as is their durability and our unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction. If you're serious about feeling and performing better, you owe it to yourself to try RumbleRoller.
DEEPER MASSAGE, DEEPER RELIEF
Each RumbleRoller product line is optimized for a particular type of deep-tissue massage.
FOAM ROLLERS MERELY COMPRESS MUSCLE
When you roll on a conventional foam roller, a compressive force is generated. The amount of compression depends on the size of the contact patch between the roller and your skin. For a typical 6" diameter foam roller, that contact patch is large, so the amount of compression is small and the effect on deeper tissues is very limited. To counter this limitation, athletes often progress to smaller and harder rollers, or even PVC pipe. A downside of that approach is that smooth, hard rollers don't conform to the shape of your body. While they may have the intended effect in some areas, they don't work well around bony areas - e.g. your pelvis, spine, and scapula.
RUMBLEROLLERS GO DEEPER
In 2009, RumbleRoller forever changed foam rolling with the introduction of the first deep-tissue roller. It's high-profile bumps penetrate deeper into the muscle, and large inter-bump spaces provide room for soft tissue displacement. Furthermore, the bumps' resilience enables them to deflect around bones and get closer than ever to the source of your problem.
LIKE A DEEP-TISSUE MASSAGE
As you roll on a RumbleRoller, its firm but flexible bumps work like the thumbs of a massage therapist to knead and stretch your muscles. This action erodes trigger points, helps restore flexibility, and brings quick relief to common types of muscular pain.
ROCK AND ROLL
RumbleRoller's massaging action can be further intensified by switching from a rolling motion to a side-to-side rocking motion. The bumps provide a wiping-type massage pressure when rolling, but are more resistant to flexion when loaded sideways, and dig in even deeper. This RumbleRoller-exclusive feature is especially useful on dense muscles (e.g. your calves) and hard-to-roll areas (e.g. your upper lat).
2 FIRMNESS OPTIONS
RumbleRollers don't break down like other foam rollers, but their bumps will soften slightly during your first month of use. However, keep in mind that your muscles also become more supple with regular massage and will require less aggressive care to maintain. Firmer isn't always better. Going too firm jeopardizes your ability to use your roller on all body parts or to relax your muscles fully. So choose the firmness that best matches your current needs.
ORIGINAL (blue): With very firm but flexible bumps, this model comes closest to mimicking thumb pressure. Great for all body parts, and works better around bony areas. Recommended for both beginners and experienced users.
XFIRM (black): Extremely firm (about 36% firmer than Original), and only recommended for experienced users with especially dense muscle tissue that doesn't respond to normal massage pressure. This model does dig deeper into thicker muscles, but may be too painful to use on some body parts.
SAFE AND EFFECTIVE
All RumbleRoller materials have been tested by independent laboratories in accordance with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) of 2008 for lead and phthalates. The CPSIA considers these products to be safe for use by anyone, including children. All RumbleRoller products are also latex-free. RumbleRoller's smooth, nonporous surface repels most dirt, is water-proof, and even includes a molded-in antimicrobial additive that helps prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus.
LONG LASTING VALUE
RumbleRollers are of unparalleled quality, partly due to extensive material research and testing. For example, the outer shell of our roller is molded from a proprietary EVA/polyolefin blend with several times the strength, tear and abrasion resistance of conventional foam rollers. Many of our competitors use a hollow plastic pipe for the core of their roller. That reduces their manufacturing cost, but also significantly reduces their roller's life. We use only solid high-density EVA foam cores, because they won't fatigue or crack over time, and provide a deep resilience that makes RumbleRoller respond better to your body. For these reasons and more, your RumbleRoller is guaranteed to outlast and outperform any foam roller that you've ever used.
