Re: Announcing the EXF Rings

Hey Lara,
I just posted another video to my blog showing how you can mount the EXF Rings in a doorway. And it also shows kind of a cool pushup variation.

I hope this helps. I still need to do another video showing how the double length straps work, but I need some high ceilings. I'll get it done soon, though.

Re: Announcing the EXF Rings

Those are pretty cool and they look sexy sweet.

However...

I mount my rings typically off the men's high bar. That is too high for me to reach up to.

I also mount my rings at home off a thick closet dowel that I put across the hole going up to the attic. Again that requires a stool.

...I can reach the top of the door only if I get up on my tiptoes.

That S thingie is really neat and I noticed they have a robust, traditional buckle as well.

Very cool product, Tyler. Rog told me you were coming out with new ones but I didn't expect anything like this.

Apparently my question wasn't as important as Lara's...

Re: Announcing the EXF Rings

Hi Michael,
Sorry about that, I jumped straight to page 2 last time I checked the thread! The price will remain at $71.95 for the foreseeable future. The discount on 3 or more will also stick around.

Blair,
You can still mount the rings the old way. To do this, you just shorten the S-buckle all the way in and then use the cam buckle for adjustments. So, you just toss it over the high bar and then run it back through the cam buckle. This was important for me personally, because I often take my rings to the park and I don't bring a ladder with me!

Re: Announcing the EXF Rings

Tyler,

What colors are they available in? I am assuming its only the black (as shown on the website) but wanted to double check with you. Thanks

Hi Kulsoom,
The Elite Rings were available in black and clear, but the EXF Rings are only available in "clear black". Basically, they are a black ring with some transparency. It looks really cool!
