WHAT MAKES OUR BANDS DIFFERENT?
Top Quality | Fair Trade | Sustainable
Our manufacturing facility has been a top producer of natural rubber latex resistance bands since 1947.
Raw Materials are sourced locally through heavily regulated, sustainable and eco-friendly farming.
Sri Lanka is also free from child labor.
Premium raw materials are the foundation of our bands, but our proprietary manufacturing process is what makes them some of the best bands in the world.
ALL ABOUT THE LAYERS
The seam on our bands is not a mistake or defect. Actually, this is one way you can tell you have a quality band!
How our bands are made:
Our bands are made through a continuous layering process with 15 total layers. The 15 layers from one piece of latex gives the band a seam on the inside and outside. Our manufacturing process helps maximize durability, elasticity and tension consistency.
The consistent tension curve throughout your ROM is the best way to feel the difference between a high and low quality band. Lower quality bands have a force curve that typically flattens out when stretched beyond 70%.
Resistance bands are basically big, rubber bands. You have probably noticed that old rubber bands it will start to dry-rot.
To prevent dry-rot and maintain elasticity, a natural and non-toxic protective coating is added to each band. Natural Rubber Latex needs additional components to maintain material stability and elasticity. Even though it is natural and non-toxic, this could irritate skin if you are allergic to, or have a latex sensitivity.
Can bands be washed to minimize this?
Yes. This can be minimized by washing the band with warm soapy water. Air dry or pat dry with a clean towel.
We are a small team based in Roanoke, Virginia. We began in 2009 with bands, but over the years have added products based on our own training needs.
We work hard to develop products that serve a real purpose and bring value to your training (regardless of your type or level of fitnesss).
Thank you for considering Serious Steel and we hope that our products can help you with your training goals.
These bands are versatile and well made. I definitely would recommend SSF if you are looking for bands!!
The bands are high quality. Just buy them - will not be disappointed.
The orange bands work great with the Spud Inc. Door Jammer. I use them on a low pulley setup and they provide the right increment for curl and military press exercises.
I use the 12” bands for deadlifts. They are my absolute favorite -
You guys make the very best bands!!!
