The surface of the RumbleRoller contains specially designed bumps that are
firm, but flexible, much like the thumbs of a massage therapist.
As you roll over the top of the RumbleRoller, the bumps continuously knead
the contours of your body, gently stretching soft tissue (muscle and fascia) in
multiple directions. This action erodes trigger points, helps restore
flexibility, and brings quick relief to common types of muscular pain. By
design, the RumbleRoller's bumps are firmer than muscle tissue, but much softer
than bone, so they deflect out of the way if they contact your spine or other
Through simple techniques, you can control the amount of pressure the bumps
apply to your body. The bumps are closely spaced to one another (< 2" apart),
so several of them simultaneously contact your body during most exercises.
However, with a slight shift of your body, you can reduce your area of contact
with the RumbleRoller, which increases pressure and provides deeper, more

The RumbleRoller's smooth, nonporous surface repels most dirt. It's also
water-proof and latex free, and includes a molded-in antimicrobial additive that
helps prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus. To clean your RumbleRoller,
simply wipe it down as needed with soap and water or any common household

massaging action can be further intensified by changing your movement from a
back-and-forth rolling motion to a side-to-side rocking motion. That's because
the RumbleRoller's bumps have an asymmetrical shape that allows them to flex
more easily in one direction. During rolling movements (i.e. the most common
roller exercises, with the roller moving beneath you), the bumps flex relatively
easily, and provide a wiping-type massage pressure. However, if you rock from
side-to-side toward the RumbleRoller's ends, the bumps are forced to flex in a
direction in which they're designed to be somewhat stiffer. This creates a
deeper "digging" pressure.
This rocking technique nearly doubles the number of ways you can use a foam
roller. It's especially effective for penetrating dense tissue like that of your
calves, as well as hard-to-roll areas like your upper lats and even your
The RumbleRoller Outlasts Conventional Foam Rollers
Before creating the
RumbleRoller, we spent years studying other foam rollers, and testing many
different types of advanced polymers. Our material research resulted in a
product that has several times the strength and tear resistance of conventional
rollers, has a wonderful feel, permanently retains its shape, and is guaranteed
to outlast and outperform any foam roller that you've ever used.
The RumbleRoller's smooth, nonporous surface is made from a proprietary
EVA/polyolefin blend that repels most dirt. It's also water-proof and latex
free, and includes a molded-in antimicrobial additive that helps prevent the
growth of bacteria and fungus. To clean your RumbleRoller, simply wipe it down
as needed with soap and water or any common household cleaner.
The RumbleRoller is used for myofascial release, a type of massage that
focuses on correcting restrictions of movement. "Myo" is Greek for muscle, and
"fascia" is the thin sheath of silvery connective tissue that envelops the outer
surface of each of your muscles.
Injuries, repetitive motion, or even prolonged inactivity can lead to the
development of trigger points, which are localized areas of muscle and fascia
with compromised function. Professional massage is the best way to counter this
problem, but few people can afford to employ it as often as it's needed. The
RumbleRoller provides you with a more convenient and economical self-treatment
Full-Size or Compact?
The RumbleRoller is made in two different sizes, and
each size is available in two different densities. The information below will
help you choose the best model for your particular needs.
If you plan to use your RumbleRoller in a single location -- e.g. at home --
you'll love the full-size model, because its extra length makes it more
efficient for performing many exercises. It's long enough to roll the widest
part of your back in one pass; you can roll both legs (quads, hamstrings, and/or
calves) at the same time; and you can even transition from one IT band to the
other without moving the roller. With the Compact RumbleRoller, you'll need to
roll each leg separately, and will spend a little more time repositioning
yourself between exercises.
The major advantage the Compact RumbleRoller has over the full-size model is
its portability. At just 30cm in length, it fits easily in your gym bag,
backpack, or carry-on luggage. This makes it a favorite of runners and
triathletes, who transport theirs from race to race. The Compact RumbleRoller's
smaller diameter (12.5cm vs. 15cm for the full-size model) allows it to conform
better to the curvature of some body parts, such as your neck. The Compact
RumbleRoller also costs less than the full-size model, which may be important if
your budget is limited.
Original Density or Extra-Firm?
If you're new to foam rolling or have
gotten positive results from any type of conventional foam roller, you'll want
the original density (blue). Even though this is our "softest" roller, it's
still more aggressive than any other foam roller on the market. The extra-firm
version (black) is intended for experienced users with especially dense muscle
tissue that doesn't respond to normal massage pressure
