We wanted to make sure travelers wouldn’t run into trouble when taking to the air. We searched the TSA’s website and couldn’t find anything that said you couldn’t travel with a jump rope. The TSA is a little vague when it comes to their rules, which means there is always a little room for an alternate interpretation.
Below is a link to the TSA’s website regarding traveling with sporting equipment:
Here is a PDF document that has information on prohibited items. Carrying this with you may not help but it can’t hurt.
Understand that Rx Jump Ropes is NOT saying that their ropes will always be OK for Carry-On luggage. It is always up to the TSA Agents at the airport. Please remember to follow all instructions given by any TSA Agent. If your ever in doubt, put your Rx Jump rope in your checked luggage.
Come and get sized for a new rope at KO CrossFit’s Grand Opening Celebration. Our Event Crew will be there building custom ropes on the spot.

We follow two basic principles with regard to jump rope length; The first is “static” rope length. That’s the actual length of a rope not in motion. The second is “dynamic” rope length. That’s the rope in motion where the athlete’s mechanics can influence the effective length of the rope.
Our sizing chart will attempt to guide you to an ideal “static” rope length. This rope length is intended to fit a specific posture while jumping. That posture can be described as follows. Starting with your anchor point, which is your hand placement. Hands should be positioned at your midline axis and right at your frontal plain. Your hands can slide in or out along this axis depending on your shoulder’s external rotational flexibility.
Your elbows should be relaxed down by your side with your shoulders as disengaged as possible. Again external rotational flexibility may dictate whether your elbows need to pull backwards in order to keep your hands from shifting forward of your frontal plain. Once we have your anchor point isolated at your midline axis we then look for your jump rope to have an even turnover passing over head and in front of the toes with a minimum of 12” clearance at both points.
If we’ve met all of those standards then we’ve placed the athlete in the best possible position to have balance and symmetry between their body and their rope. It will now only depend on the athlete’s efficiency of mechanics to dictate their “dynamic” rope length
When viewing the sizing chart please locate your height while wearing your normal work out shoes. Then see the indicated rope length recommended for that height. That is the measurement you would select when purchasing your Custom Rx Jump Rope.

All of us here at Rx want to give everyone who came out this past Sunday for the CrossFit East County Clinic a big thank you. This was our first group clinic that we put on within new Rx University. We are working on getting a schedule put together and published soon with upcoming clinics that not only focus on jump rope technique and double unders but CrossFit specific gymnastics skills such as handstand pushups, muscle ups and rope climb technique.
