Can Crossrope Jump Ropes Be Used Outdoors?
We do not recommend them for outdoor use unless you have some sort of rubberized pad or mat, or even cardboard to jump on.
Crossrope jump ropes are intended for non-abrasive indoor surfaces. In order to safely benefit from the high-performance nature of steel cable, there is a vinyl coating to provide some protection and to prevent the ropes from crimping.
The sacrifice for this high performance is that the vinyl will wear down if it is used outdoors on unprotected surfaces.
If you do opt to use the cables outdoors, you can expect the vinyl to wear down. However, the rope core itself is durable enough to remain intact and prevent the rope from snapping.
