A HISTORY OF THE SERIOUS STEEL STONE SLEEVES
It took us close to a year to design and develop these stone sleeves. Beginning back in 2016, with just a sketch and some leather, we began forming and fitting these guards to protect the forearms from Atlas stones. Each pain staking prototype we would get closer and closer. Finally, in 2017-2018, we released version 1.0 at the Arnold Festival and Expo in Columbus, Ohio. Met with rave reviews, we knew we were on to something. Since then, we have refined the sleeves, making them even more stout. Version 2.0 has now been released and they are the best yet. We stand behind our sleeves - if you have any doubt or concern, let us know. We will take care of it.

With the belt and loop closure design, you can safely use tacky with these sleeves and not have to worry about gumming up Velcro or strings.
These stone sleeves also feature a through-leather strap to ensure a tight and stout fit. Included is a unique anti-slip material on the inside so that the sleeves stay in place during the whole workout. If you are a strongman or woman athlete and are looking for a pair of sleeves to take your atlas stone training and performance to the next level, these are for you.
To ensure proper sizing, measure your forearm just below the elbow where the top of the sleeve will rest during use.
To measure: Use a flexible tape measure to proper measurement. If you do not have a flexible tape measure, use a string and measure it’s length against a ruler. Stone sleeves are meant to be worn tight, so measure your forearm snug.
Tighten up. Pick it up. Load.

I started out with trains stones bareskin and First time trying these was in training and absolutely loved them. Broke them out again on my very first competition and they helped me place first. I’ll definitely be using these again in future training and competition!
Best product I ever brought. No more bruising from the stones and I’m able to go up in weight on the stones with the sleeves.
I went bare skin for years and with high volume stone sessions I was getting torn up every week . I honestly wish I would have bought a pair sooner. I throw a little tape at the top amd bottom and they haven't moved an inch even with 400lb plus stone loads.
The was a first purchase from Serious Steel and I was impressed with the product and the service. I order a pair of stone sleeves that were just too small. The returns process was easy and painless. They shipped the correct size within a few days whola…Stone Sleeves. Keep in mind the smaller size sleeve was my fault not theirs. My only quibble with the product is the buckles. themselves. Time and use will tell how they hold up.
I ordered a piece of training gear and got it rather quickly. Upon receiving and inspecting it, I noticed a defect. I then emailed the company explaining the issue. I got a quick response as well as a replacement sent out immediately. They also included the return label with the second shipment. This is top notch service in my book. I’ll definitely be giving them my business for any future needs.
