Unleash greater performance by working with a greater range of motion.
Say goodbye to wrist pain because the parallettes put the wrist in a natural position.
Get the best of both worlds by combining a birch wooden handle for the strong grip, and a metal body for extreme durability.
Grav parallettes were made of birch wood, smooth to touch but yet grippy when holding on. True to the word, they took roughly 2min to assemble. As the parallettes could support heavy weight, we even stood on them to mount Grav gymnastics rings to a high structure.
If you're interested to see us testing and assembling the parallettes, here's our YouTube link where we did a review and product testing :)
I struggled with grip on the steel parallettes at the gym, which made starting calisthenics additionally stressful. I put these together at home and bam - success on the first try! They're sturdy and look great, and the high-quality birch feels great and supports my grip for a long time. Now I look forward to the next session, and I can't wait to try out more GravGear.
These parallettes are the perfect height and size. If you have the space to bring these, they are the best use for handstand work, planche and all those movements. Tall enough to tuck your feet under when going from l-sit to handstand. Also tall enough to do things like planche push ups
Thick and well-sanded wooden handle for the best grip. Beats metal bar any day any time.

Perform any bodyweight skills on parallettes to ease the stress on wrists.
Elevate Your Calisthenics Games

Elevate your hand position from the floor
They also introduce variation to calisthenics exercises. Variation is good for muscle growth. The elevated hand position means you can do push-ups with lower depth than on the floor. Deeper stimulation to the chest and shoulder and bigger gain.
Giving you a neutral wrist position
Why does this matter? In calisthenics, you spend all your time on the floor (besides on the bars and rings) doing all kinds of pushing exercises like push-ups and handstands. Parallettes put your wrist in a straight posture so you don’t have to press them hard on the floor. This will greatly reduce the risk of injury especially wrist is not your main training target.
Make certain workouts easier
L-sit is a great example. Doing l-sit on the floor is a lot harder than on a pair of parallettes, because that movement requires strong abs and hip flexors. The elevated body position allows you to hold a not-so-strict L-sit as your legs are dropping.
Best grip and durability
Nothing beats the wooden handle for a perfect grip. It absorbs slight moisture from your palm’s sweat and maintains the grip throughout the whole workout. There is no need for chalking and taping. The metal body provides superb stability that is going to last decades. Now you don’t have to worry about safety while practicing the skills you always wanted.
