About Bear KompleX
Bear KompleX (BKX) entered the CrossFit market in early 2015 with Rhodes and Richie working closely with the highest level of Crossfit athletes to help design the best grips on the planet. Shortly thereafter, the company’s patented two-hole and three-hole finger option hand grips swiftly developed a devoted following among serious athletes. The distinctive line of grips are made from genuine leather and carbon fiber to reduce slipping. They also have a custom wrist strap designed for comfort and support under the buckle. The BKX grips are engineered to protect athletes’ hands during training and competition. The company’s aim is sincere: to assist CrossFit athletes in attaining the maximum level of performance, whether training or competing. BKX provides hand grips that are not only durable, but comfortable. The full support and stability provided by the grips result in the better overall health of the committed CrossFit athlete. All BKX products, including top-performing weight belts, knee sleeves, mobility tools and much more, are made in the U.S. and can be found at www.BearKompleX.com.
