What is a Wrist Wrap?

Now that the CrossFit Games have wrapped up, you’re probably inspired as all hell and ready to get some of the cool stuff you saw the athletes wearing.

One of the brands you saw in the games does very well at sponsoring the CrossFit games and making sure all the athletes are decked out in everything they could want for their workouts.

Apparel. Knee Sleeves. Shoes. Ohhhh, the shoes. The women athlete lifters’ were everything! Ok, ok, back on track here.

There are two different kinds of wrist wraps on the market, one with a tie closure and one with a velcro closure.

The tie closure type is usually made out of fabric, such as cotton, and requires the wearer to position the wrap on their wrist fully and then tuck in the string inside itself to stay put.

They’re sturdy, strong, and do the job. Designs are more versatile, because cotton fabric is easy to come by.

However, the structure of the wrap limits the user to having to remove the entire wrap just to adjust it.

Durable and Dependable

Our wrist wraps have the convenience of being able to be tightened and loosened without taking them off completely. You can make them extra tight for more support during a heavy PR lift and slightly looser for a more comfortable fit during a WOD.

Whatever your preferred level of support is you can get it with these wraps.

They easily twist on and off, tighten and loosen, and the velcro attachment makes them easier to adjust than cotton wrist wraps.

When your wrists need extra support you can count on our wraps to be strong, durable, and supportive while remaining comfortable. We all at one time have probably experienced some degree of wrist injury but if you haven’t, this is one injury that can sideline your training for a little while.

Wrist Tips

Our wrist wraps are designed to be different in design and high quality. Each wrist wrap has its own special print without jeopardizing its support.

Everyone has a favorite design, that’s why we offer supportive wraps with many cool and unique designs. 

Did you know?

Our wraps aren’t just for CrossFit and lifting though, they act as great support for MMA classes, yoga, HIIT, and gymnastics.

And they double as an awesome sweat band.

Just saying.

They’re anti-microbial, and we have a donut print, with no calories available.

Check out our article here on how to clean your LTD Lifting Gear. For wrist wraps, we recommend affixing the velcro in place before cleaning. This will give the velcro a longer life!

Washing instructions are included in every package but make sure to throw them into a garment bag if they’re going in the washer, or hand-wash with a mild detergent. You can also spray them with our Bad(a$$) Stink Spray – which is like dry shampoo for wrist wraps.

That’s a wrap!

It’s hard being the person who doesn’t give up.
