Zenith™ for Digital Strength & Health

IronMind has been getting a lot of questions about Zenith, the new gripper that is featured on the cover of the 2013 IronMind catalog, so for those of you who can’t wait, here’s the story.

Zenith was designed from the ground up, with the goal of optimizing the design and performance of a gripper for digital fitness.  And while Zenith was not going to be a substitute for Captains of Crush Grippers, we wanted it to complement them just as all of IronMind’s CoC-compatible grip tools do—all the IronMind products that are specifically designed to work seamlessly with Captains of Crush Grippers as part of an overall grip training system.

Zenith has a brand new power plant in the form of a proprietary alloy steel spring that will give you smooth acceleration and plenty of power, mile after mile.  And what’s it driving?  A pair ergonomically-shaped billet aluminum handles that follow the natural curve and proportions of your palm and fingers for a comfortable fit that also allows the gripper to sit better in your hand.

Further enhancing the design and performance goal, Zenith handles have a silky-smooth surface that almost gives a soft feeling because the fit is so good and the surface so approachable: think glide, not grind, if you want to picture how Zenith works in your hand.

For low rep, maximum strength training, Captains of Crush Grippers remain your top choice, but if you would like to complement your 1RM focus with some conditioning work or need a gripper to fill in some blanks or one to help you mend injured hands, Zenith is the way to go.

We recommend that you train with a Zenith gripper that is one or two levels below what you are using for your Captains of Crush Gripper work sets—so if you are using a CoC No. 2, we’d recommend you try a Zenith Trainer or a Zenith No. 1.

Initially, Zenith grippers will be available in three strengths: Agility (one level below a CoC Guide), Trainer and No. 1.  The Zenith No. 2 and the Zenith No. 3 will be following very shortly.

Zenith grippers are priced at $24.95 each + S&H.
