Gripbell’s design is dynamic stimulating the burn factor to be multiplied several times as you workout. Those who have tried our prototype were amazed at how intense the workout was on their bodies. When well into their workout they said that 3 pounds Gripbell began to feel like 15 pounds, and 5 pounds Gripbell began to feel like 25. The additional benefit of using the Gripbell is that you would not need to stop and switch weights between routines!
Feel the Burn, Not The Hurt.
Gripbell, unlike other free weights, has perfectly distributed weight allowing you to challenge yourself to a more intense routines without worrying about losing control of the equipment. Gripbell is designed with the best materials for easy grip and maneuver.
Because there is no direct contact with metal or hard materials the chance of the equipment slipping away from you and hurting you is minimized drastically. But we all slip. It happens to even the best of the best. When it slips, Gripbell does not have a single hard, weighted point to harm you unlike the ends of a dumbbell or the weighted part of a kettleball.
Travel with Gripbell.
With its balanced design Gripbell is extremely portable. Put it in a suitcase or a backpack and it remains clutter-free. Fitness should not stop when you go to places!

Physical Design & Details
The inner core
Gripbell's internal frame is made of recycled cast iron. The cores of the lightest two weights — 3 and 5 pounds — are made of solid PVC.
The grip-friendly exterior
Gripbell's exterior is a molded-over hypoallergenic polyurethane. Even the colored part is made of the same material. Everything feels the same and seamless.
One size does it all
All the weights are all exactly the same physical size and shape. So your muscles just focus on getting stronger rather than relearning and remastering each time you move up a weight level. Long live muscle memory!
The weight levels & colors
If Gripbell is of the same size and shape how can I tell which weight to use? Most of the industrial dumbbells and barbells are difficult to tell apart even if they’re in different sizes. With Gripbell it is easy to tell the difference: color.
Gripbell in Action
How Gripbell Was Born
While working out in 2014, Mark Wood nearly smashed his knee when it was hit with a kettlebell. It was then that the idea was conceived of a new type of weighted equipment that would change how you grip when working out, making it safe and versatile.
Mark recruited a team to work with him over the past year and half designing and developing prototypes to transform the way you exercise utilizing an equipment that simple and practical. Getting to Kickstarter is one of their milestone and the time has arrived now to introduce Gripbell to you!
Gripbell has transformed Mark's life. It can change yours too.
See how Gripbell has transformed Mark completely. He began this journey as a frustrated and overweight individual. He is now a healthy, fit, spiritually happy person. Mark believes that Gripbell has changed his life.
Where We Are Now
We came this far through self-funding the design, development, and testing of Gripbell. After giving Gripbell over a year to reach its final prototype and coordinating with our manufacturers, we are ready to go! Every dollar pledged will go towards manufacturing, quality assurance, packaging and shipping.
When you choose your pledge for this product, you will see the shipping price to your door. We anticipate the product to be shipped by Fall 2016. At the moment we will be accepting orders shipped to United States or Canada only.
We stand firmly behind our products. Gripbell will be covered by minimum 1-year limited warranty.

Risks and challenges
We have spent the past two years researching and developing Gripbell reaching to a point where we ready to move past the prototype to the final product. Over the past two years we ran pre-production and testings of the Gripbell. As soon as the funding is achieved we anticipate that our manufacturers and suppliers would be ready to produce full orders and ship within 120 - 150 days. Even if we find that likelihood of delays and unforeseeable circumstances occurring, it is yet possible. As our valued supporter, you will be the first to know if anything unexpected happens.
