Friction Rope Training Drum | RX505 Hydra | Ropeflex





ROPEFLEX training machines are based on simple, time-proven principles of rope climbing while reducing the risk of this traditionally dangerous activity to nearly zero. Individuals of any age and athletic ability can benefit from our unique rope technology safely and comfortably.

Ropeflex friction-based equipment is durable, maintenance-free, and is made 100% in the United States. All parts are painted with a polymer-based powder coat for a long-lasting finish. Our high-quality ropes allow a comfortable grip, limiting friction and slipping during the exercise activity.

RX1500 offers a standalone frame for the RX505 and can be selected as a single or dual station for group training. It allows 12 position vertical adjustment of the RX505 head, has a minimal footprint and is ADA compliant.



RX505 Base Configuration comes with a clamping plate attachment mechanism. Other options including J-Hook style bracket and rail are available. J-Hook adapter option is designed to accommodate racks with Westside hole spacing and can be customized to work with other spacing options as well. This is usually 2 inches (~50mm) between holes. Westside hole spacing means that the holes in the uprights are closer together (1 inch or ~25mm) near the bottom of the rack and further apart (2 inches or ~50mm) toward the middle and top of the rack.
