Length Options for Slastix

by | Jan 1, 2019 | Optimize Weekly

Most Popular Length

Our most popular Slastix length is our 36 inch. We recommend this length because it allows enough stretch distance for most types of training without being too long and cumbersome. We include the four of the 36″ inch Slastix in the Stroops VITL Kit, our best selling resistance band training kit. But just because the 36″ inch Slastix is good for most people, doesn’t mean it is what is best for your training.

The Right Length for your training

Stroops Slastix come in lengths ranging from 12 inches all the way up to 72 inches. The smaller Slastix are typically used for replacement parts for products like the Striker, Stroops full body resistance band training suit. Shorter Slastix are also utilized for custom training setups and are offered online for convenience. The middle range Slastix are perfect for most indoor training with the 36″ inch option being most popular. The longer Slastix such as the 72-inch Slastix are great for exercises that need a large movement area, such as jumps and sprints. Through years of serving the fitness community we have built our length selection to fit all training needs.

Special considerations for slastix length

As you select your Slastix length, remember that the length listed is the length of the un-stretched resistance bands. All of the Slastix have a 3:1 stretch ratio. So if you have a 72-inch Slastix (6 feet) then it will stretch out to 216 inches long (18 feet). It is important to understand max stretch length because you will need the appropriate space in your facility to accommodate the length of your Slastix training zone.

If the lengths offered online do not meet the needs of your training, please call or email customer service and we can discuss custom orders for special lengths. Lastly, if you have any questions about picking your Slastix length call in and a Stroops representative will help take care of you.

    Hi

    Just for my information please,
    Why the 36 in Slastic will stretch up to 4 times it’s length, and the other Slastics will stretch only 3 times it’s length?
    Do you have 10 ft Slastic in light and medium strength? Because the strength options provided in Stroops website for the Slastic 10 ft only 47 lb resistance and above is available.
    Is it possible to request the 72 in & 10 ft Slastic stretch 1:4 times it’s length?

    What Slastic is recommended for soccer speed training?
    Do you have sale promotions sometimes?

    Thanks & Regards

      Hi Ali,

      The 36 inch slastix is a specialty slastix designed for our VITL Kit. It allows for a longer workout area.

      If you email [email protected] our sales team can work with you on a custom order for a 10 foot slastix.

      The Son of the Beast Pro kit is a great option for soccer training and gives you the ability to perform battle rope exercises as well.

      Thanks for your questions!

    Do you offer any books (for purchase) or PDF downloads, showing the many different ways to use your bands? I’ve taken classes at Pure Barre called “Reform” and they use similar bands in their barre workout. They do some of the most amazing things with their bands anchored at the floor and also attached to their ballet barre. I’m always looking for new ideas and your resistance bands look intriguing.

    What is the pull strength, especially pounds, on the resistance bands. Our gym has yellow, red and blue. One of the trainers told me 10, 15 and 20 pounds but that doesn’t seem right.

    Thank you,

      Our resistance chart is shown if you go to the page for the product that you have. The resistance in pounds is actually the measurement at the max stretch of the band. The resistance will increase from no stretch to max stretch.
